Property Description

Dating back to 1630 - when it was originally established as a coaching inn - Old Monmouth lies in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis and forms one of a row of properties, just 100 yards from the seafront. Full of character, it offers spacious holiday accommodation for 16 people - with seven bedrooms (five en-suite) and also has many period features, including beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and pine wooden shutters.
Old Monmouth has endured a chequered history with Monmouth’s cavalry lodging there in 1685, being visited by Oscar Wilde in 1891 and used by the Americans as a HQ during the war. This unique property is an excellent holiday home to enjoy Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb, beach, shops and cafes, and also to explore the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. There is superb scenery, coastal walking, golf and fishing on the doorstep, and within easy driving distance are Bridport, Charmouth, Beer, Seaton and Sidmouth. Weymouth, with its Deep Sea Adventure, Timewalk and many other attractions also makes for a good family visit. There are a host of National Trust properties to visit, as well as Forde Abbey and Gardens - whilst inland, the Yeovilton Air Museum, the Haynes Motor Museum, Sherborne Castle and much more provide alternative days out. Shops 200 yards, pubs and restaurant 100 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This property is in an excellent location. 13 of us enjoyed a fantastic weekend. It is big enough that we never felt on top of each other. Nov 2012.
  2. The property is located within a few minutes walk of the town and beach and is ideal for a family get together. Excellent spacious accommodation. June 2012.
  3. Great house - very spacious and well equipped. Chose this property partly as it’s located in centre of Lyme Regis so it’s very convenient for the shops & restaurants. Beach is only about 3 mins away on foot. Would recommend to anyone who wanted house for family gathering or other special occasions. May 2012.
  4. A great venue for a family holiday. April 2012.
  5. Sleeps 12 adults easily, but would be a squeeze with more, but would quite easily sleep 12 adults and a few children. Our party was all women for a 50th birthday. Very handy having two fridges. The pictures on the site do not do it justice as its massive. Enough sofa and table space too, which often is not the case. We will be returning!! March 2012.
  6. This large property was an excellent holiday choice for our party of 12 - 6 children (20 months to 12) and 6 adults. It is ideally situated within easy reach of all that Lyme Regis has to offer - a week when the cars could be left in the car park and we could walk, run or stroll everywhere. Having the sea so accessible was appreciated by everyone. Feb 2012.
  7. Spent Xmas at Old Monmouth, there were 13 of us and we had an excellent time. The house was warm and cosy, there was ample equipment to enable us to prepare all the meals. Towels and bedding were of an excellent standard. The owner had decorated the house for us, this was our second stay and we would recommend it to anyone and will definitely book it again. Dec 2011.
  8. We booked Old monmouth for us and our family for our wedding, we stayed for 4 nights and i can honestly say it was amazing, it is such a great house, it had plenty of space for everybody, plenty of bathrooms the kitchen was fully equipped and was very clean.The owner, Chantel was very pleasant on the phone and even left a wedding card in the cottage for us. We would definately recommend Old Monmouth and we would stay there again. Oct 2011.
  9. The house is big but cosy and really comfortable, the location is excellent but we were also more than happy to stay in!! Nov 2010.
  10. The property was very clean, bed linen and towels were lovely. Sept 2010.
  11. The premises were spotless on our occupation with a very full provision of kitchen equipment in particular. An initial provision of some basic foods etc. was much appreciated. The accommodation was just as specified in the property details and met our family requirements exactly for 16 people, with plenty of communal space so no sense of being cramped in. We were very satisfied with the property. July 2010.
  12. I’ve been staying at the Old Monmouth since before the present owner acquired it. It looks less tired now and the new bathrooms and carpets make a huge positive difference. May 2010.
  13. Lovely old inn in centre of lyme regis, wel-equipped but not modernised to sterility. April 2010.
  14. Location and size of accommodation. April 2010.
  15. The space, quality of furniture and equipment. March 2010.
  16. The size and space of the property was generous, and accommodating for our large party of 11 adults. March 2010.
  17. It was the most perfect place - well kept, well equipped and wonderfully located. I’ve since had 7 of the people who came ask about your company. Feb 2010.
  18. Exactly what we ordered with plenty of room. Feb 2010.
  19. The size, space and conditions were excellent. Good location, shame about the parking. Nov 2009.
  20. Great location close to town and beach, large lounge and dining rooms. Oct 2009.
