The New Year is finally with us, and with it comes 365 days we can exploit to make this year the best one ever. Whether you’re planning on switching jobs, finally losing those extra pounds or achieving any other goal in your life, the New Year gives us all an opportunity to begin again.

Amid all those big changes though, it’s important to remember that there’s serious value in taking a break from time to time, reconnecting with relaxation and finding ourselves in a new environment.

Taking a holiday can be the gift to yourself that you really need, and in 2018 there’s simply no better place to visit than Lyme Regis, but what does the Dorset town have to offer you this year?

Amazing Coastal Scenery

The British coast doesn’t often get the credit it deserves – especially when you consider that British beaches are often named amongst the best in the world.

Whether enjoyed in the blazing heat of summer or the windswept beauty of winter, the coastal scenery of Lyme Regis is truly something to behold, and taking it all in from one of our coastal cottages couldn’t be easier.

From the transcendent joys found along the South West Coastal Path to award winning beaches like Weymouth Beach (just one hour away), there’s so much to enjoy – and that’s without getting into the beaches right on your doorstep, like Town and Monmouth Beach! Quite simply, there’s no place quite like Lyme Regis when it comes to coastline.

World Class Restaurants

If delectable dining is more to your taste, Lyme Regis is the perfect base from which to discover new taste sensations.

Blessed with a multitude of amazing local restaurants like Poco Pizza, The Millside Restaurant and The Harbour Inn, you scarcely need to leave town to indulge in some amazing food. If, however, you find Lyme Regis’ isn’t quite scratching your culinary itch, the surrounding areas play host to even more remarkable restaurants, like The Orange Tree in Torquay, the Ship Inn in Axmouth and River Cottage, in Axminster.

From traditional British fayre to Asian fusion cuisine and beyond, there’s something for everyone in Lyme Regis.
