Lyme Bay, Dorset

Anyone who knows Lyme Bay on the coast of Devon and Dorset can tell you how beautiful it is; because it forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast the geology is unique and is well known for its fossils – it’s where Mary Anning found the famous Ichthyosaur now on display in the Natural History Museum in London, alongside several more of her specimens.

Lyme Bay is a popular holiday destination, not just because of the generally temperate weather conditions but also due to the undeniably stunning scenery – rolling green hills, wide open fields, pretty little fishing villages and cliffs of striking golden or towering red sandstone. Places that tend to pull the crowds are Exmouth and Sidmouth because of their wide beaches, and Lyme Regis because of its charm and history. Just as appealing are the smaller coastal villages of Beer, Branscombe and Charmouth; they are all unique and have their own allure.

Wherever you go you’ll find good beaches, family attractions, interesting shops to browse and excellent places to eat – all you need for a happy day out which is why Lyme Bay should be on your ‘To Do’ list when you’re staying at our holiday cottages in Devon.
