The front door opens onto a small entrance lobby with hooks for coats and space for shoes, boots, pushchair etc. A door leads into the living room, combining kitchen, dining and lounge areas in one spacious, light and practical room. The fully equipped kitchen area comprises modern built-in electric oven, microwave, four ring gas hob, fridge freezer and dishwasher, with ample work surfaces and cupboards with pans, crockery and cutlery. In the dining area, a long ash table with bench seats and chairs is complemented by smart pine cladding to walls, providing an excellent space for board games and jigsaws as well as family meals!
The lounge is cozily furnished with sofas and armchairs, television set, video recorder and DVD. From here, a door leads up a narrow staircase to the landing, bedrooms and bathroom. Recently totally redesigned, the smart modern bathroom comprises power shower, bath, basin and toilet. At the top of the stairs Bedroom III has a single bed, wardrobe and bedside small chest of drawers. Turn right along the landing to find Bedroom II straight ahead, with two single beds, walk-in wardrobe and chest of drawers. The door on the left leads to Bedroom I with double bed, wardrobe, two bedside chests of drawers, dressing table and wall mounted TV. All bedrooms are provided with linen, continental quilts and bath towel and hand towel per person. The cottage is centrally heated with thermostatically controlled radiator valves in each room and Georgian style double-glazed windows.
Opposite the bathroom, a door leads across the garden to the Boathouse annex. The garden is enclosed with no access to the road, making it safe for small children and pets. It is mainly paved, has some steps onto different levels, and there are small trees, shrubs and a few other plants. A table and chairs are provided and a barbecue area. A gate at the top of steep steps to the kitchen back door and downstairs loo can be secured safely for children. The "Boathouse" provides further comfortable accommodation with good sized playroom/sitting room with television set, chest of drawers and shelves containing jigsaws, cards etc. Doors off lead to the fully equipped laundry, with automatic washing machine and tumble drier, and shower room with power shower, basin and toilet. Through the playroom, a door leads to the bedroom with three single beds and wardrobe - ideal for the younger members of the family. The Boathouse is fully centrally heated throughout, double glazed and warmly carpeted and furnished.
Leave the boathouse and find the steep steps - protected by railings - which lead down to the back door of the kitchen, and also a small toilet.
Within two minutes walk is a private lockable parking bay available to "Appletrees" Loading and unloading may take place outside the cottage, but waiting there is strictly limited.
Lyme Regis is a delightful small fishing town with picturesque harbour and glorious surrounding scenery. Famous for fossils, with sand, rock pools, cliffs and nature reserve all within walking distance. There are many other activities in the surrounding area.
We have found it to be an ideal seaside home for the family.
