Everything at Dorset House, from the rooms to the facilities, has been designed to ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible
Luxurious bedding

Luxurious Bedding

We believe that luxurious bedding is key to a relaxing break away so high quality mattresses are dressed with crisp sheets and goose down duvets and pillows. Original shutters, blackout curtains and that all important sea air ensure a great nights sleep.

Contemporary Bathrooms

Contemporary Bathrooms

Whilst each bathroom is unique, care has been taken to provide the highest quality fittings as well as fluffy towels and robes. Gorgeous Bramley natural toiletries are provided to enhance your experience.

Sea Views Lyme Regis

Technology as Required

All rooms have free WiFi, TVs with DVD player or smart TVs and Ruark audio systems with iPod docks – although most guests enjoy leaving technology aside to take in the views.

Honesty Bar Dorset House

Honesty Bar

We have an interesting and varied viticulture here in Dorset and as such the Honesty Bar tends towards local tipples – the most local of which, Castlewood Fizz, is produced only a couple of miles away. Other local delights include the hand distilled Conker Gin, Black Cow Vodka and wonderful locally brewed beers from Gyle 59 and Lyme Regis Brewery. Our carefully curated wine list offers something for everyone and of course includes some local favourites. So make yourself at home in the comfy snug and pour yourself a drink. Whether an aperitif before dinner or a warming nightcap, we’ve got it covered. To see our wine list click here

Snug Dorset House



We want our guests to feel at home as soon as they walk into Dorset House so the snug is a place where you can sit and read the papers or magazines provided, enjoy your welcome cup of tea, enjoy a glass of fizz with friends from the Honesty Bar or just sit and chat. The light floods into this room and on sunny days the doors out onto the veranda are open so that you can feel the sea breeze. On cooler days the log burner is lit and are lovely welsh blankets are at hand to curl up with.

South West Coast Path

Walking the Jurassic Coast


Whether you’re walking the South West Coast Path or along the beach searching for fossils, muddy boots are welcome at Dorset House. We have the Aga to dry off any clothing if required and will happily fill up your flask with coffee before you head out for the day. Maps of the area are available to borrow in the snug and we are happy to talk you through a few of our favourite walks (and pit stops!). For the more impromptu walker, we have a selection of wellies available for you to borrow and umbrellas should a downpour descend.

Sea Views

Views on the Veranda


What could be lovelier than breakfast on the veranda? Or evenings chilling out on the sofas with a crisp white wine? There are heaters too and blankets in the snug so enjoy the space as you please


In common with many places in Lyme Regis, we don’t have parking on site but we are very close to two of Lyme Regis’ public car parks. Holmbush is a short walk away at the end of Pound Road and parking is only £2 for 24 hours. You can of course pull up outside Dorset House to drop off luggage.
