Lyme Regis, Dorset Coast, England

Lyme Regis: Traditional English Sea Side Town on the Dorset Coast

Lyme Regis is on the edge of Dorset as you head towards Devon. It is a traditional English sea-side town with a certain elegance compared with some of the south coast towns. Charming architecture and narrow streets and two beaches surround this old fishing village. Jane Austen wrote Persuasion here and it was also used as the set for The French Lietenant's Woman. Some of the first dinosaur fossils were found in the limestone cliffs surrounding the town.

Hotel/Pub in the centre of Lyme Regis

If you want a convenient location right next to the harbour, then The Cobb Arms could be ideal. It is right next to the central car parks, beaches and most most of the shops and restaurants. A simple, traditional English pub, with good beer and reasonable food. It is far from luxurious, but reasonably priced.
