About Us

Lyme Bay Holidays are a large, friendly, local agency established for over 40 years. Specialising in the area surrounding Lyme Regis on the Dorset and Devon border we cover much of the World Heritage Coast. This includes a mix of stunning countryside, attractive market towns and villages.


We only offer handpicked cottages, houses, and apartments all of which are independently inspected for quality assurance. We are proud of our status as a VisitEngland Quality Accredited Agency (QAA) having received the award following a stringent and thorough VisitEngland assessment of our policies, procedures, and practices.


Many of our guests come to us from recommendations and countless return to our properties year after year. We pride ourselves on the bespoke, personal service we give to our holidaymakers. There will always be a member of the team available to guests 24 hours a day, 365 days a year ensuring everything is perfect for your stay.


Our friendly and helpful booking team all live in the local area and will have visited all our properties so you can be certain that we will give you the best advice to find the right holiday for you.


Based in the historic seaside town of Lyme Regis our office is staffed 6 days a week, all year round, and we will be happy to discuss any requirements and assist with your selection. Just telephone between 8.30am and 5pm from Monday to Saturday or contact us at email@lymebayholidays.co.uk.
