Steeped in history, Old Monmouth is believed to be one of the oldest properties in Lyme Regis and still relishes many old original features giving this substantial home a wealth of character and charm.

Delightfully and comfortably furnished to complement its age, this impressive house is perfect for family groups or friends looking to be in a central location close to the beach and the town’s many independent shops and restaurants.

The lounge is a truly striking room with inglenook fireplace and high ceiling with beams. A smaller drawing room offers a separate room to retreat to with the wood burning stove giving a cosy feel. A staircase leads to the lower ground floor with a large family kitchen with Belfast sink and range style oven, and an adjoining dining room making this property adequately equipped to cater for up to 12 guests.

The five double bedrooms, charmingly named after Lyme’s notable and historical figures, have the same delightful mix of period character and modern comforts, all with en suite shower rooms and TV's. The twin bedroom has use of a separate bathroom.

A welcome pack for your arrival ensures a great start to your holiday and will include milk, tea and a selection of locally sourced produce and treats. A superb holiday home with period style in abundance and ideally situated to enjoy this picturesque seaside town on the stunning Jurassic coast.
