Hill Barn,
Gore Lane,


The Bower is a beautifully converted farm building set in the acre grounds of Hill Barn amid rolling countryside a mile from the centre of Lyme Regis. Positioned at the end of the East Devon Way and a short walk from the South West Coast Path and Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The very high standard of accommodation is reflected in our outstanding guest comments. The Bower is on one level, making it ideal for those who have difficulty with stairs and has central heating, character log fire, free WiFi and parking.
