    “The front door was difficult to open on numerous occasions, the hot water was not hot enough to have a bath, a really awkward step into the lounge by the kitchen which has been padded out by a rug, we still tripped.”

    The sofa was too low. We used the downstairs bed which was far too high and nowhere to hang coats by the front door only under the stairs. The kitchen was modern if a bit overblown for a cottage.

    Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to see that the property was not to your liking. Regarding the hot water, we have had our maintenance team attend twice to see if any fault can be resolved. None was found but like with most hot water supplies, the taps need to not be opened all the way to allow the boiler to keep up with the demand and deliver lovely hot water. The property is not a new build but rather a very characterful cottage and with this comes slightly uneven levels which we feel adds to the charm of the building. The property boasts many modern furnishings including the Chesterfield style sofa and double bed downstairs. We appreciate that a mattress can be a tricky item to please everyone, but the owner has taken great care to purchase a mattress that we hope appeals to nearly all guests. We like our properties to be a home-from-home for our customers and the owners have ensured this with Blacksmiths Cottage, with the idea to have guests wanting for nothing. We appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback and we hope to welcome you back to the Lyme Bay area in the future. Property Owner

About the location


Lyme Regis 1 mile

The beautiful countryside surrounding the village of Uplyme, on the borders of Devon and Dorset, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, criss-crossed by bridleways and footpaths including the East Devon Way, and providing perfect country walks and superb views. The area was chosen by TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for his River Cottage HQ at Park Farm, where you can treat yourself to a great meal. Just a short drive takes you to the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. This delightful historic seaside town boasts a maze of narrow streets, with an interesting array of shops and cafes, whilst the sandy beach lends itself to great bathing and watersports, and the bustling little harbour offers regular fishing trips, or try your hand at fossil hunting. Within an easy drive is the quaint town of Axminster, or how about a ride on the Seaton Tramway? A glorious location for a varied and interesting holiday.
