Lyme Regis has it all - the perfect family resort, the home of palaeontology, a world-class creative and cultural community, a bustling harbour, gastronomic delights, an array of shops, a calendar full of events, and plenty for the active.

So, why not look up Lyme Regis accommodation today and book a stay in one of the South West's most desirable holiday destinations?
