In accordance with the Leisure and Tourism sector guidelines, we have taken extra precautions to ensure your safety and safety of others during your visit. We have upscaled the cleaning operations with particular attention to issues of Covid 19 hygiene – please see bulleted list below.
If you are unsure of the current guidelines on Coronavirus we would ask you to review them here please; https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

As well as a full change-over and a deep clean for each visit:

  • We have fixed an antiviral handwash dispenser by the front door to use upon each entry and, of course antiviral soap dispensers in each of the three bathrooms.
  • All surfaces are treated with Antiviral Disinfectant cleansers. This includes all kitchen and bathroom surfaces, pots, pans, door & cupboard handles, remotes, taps, sockets, light switches/pulls, baby high-chair, gate, travel cot etc.
  • We have left a dedicated laundry bag in each bedroom for guests to use.
  • We will rotate non-essential items such as cushions and throws.
  • Books have not been rotated – sanitising wipes under kitchen sink are left for guests to use before utilising any book.
  • Pictures, ornaments and display cabinets have been left for your enjoyment but please refrain from touching items.
  • We have removed hair-dryers – so please remember to bring your own.

It is worth mentioning that there is little chance of encountering other folk in close proximity at Fossilers’ Lodge as the property stands pretty much alone save for the private and little-used outdoor access passage.

Situated in the heart of Lyme Regis – a stone’s throw from the seafront, with views to the sea from the south facing windows – this four-bedroom home offers spacious and well-equipped accommodation for families or groups of couples seeking the perfect seaside break. This maisonette apartment, Grade II listed building is one of the most historic buildings in Lyme and rumoured to be six hundred years old.  Fossilers has been fully refurbished with a new kitchen and bathrooms.  The owner has made efforts to retain much of the character of this historic building, incorporating original features such as wood panelling, window seats and exposed beams. A wood burner has been fitted into the old half-inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and the furnishings and decor reflect a homely and relaxed approach to the holiday experience. There are four spacious bedrooms, two shower rooms plus a separate bathroom with the added benefit of complimentary towels, making this a great choice for larger groups.


This apartment is located in the very heart of the beautiful, unspoilt seaside town of Lyme Regis, on the stunning Dorset coast. As well as a sandy beach and seafront promenade, the town includes restaurants, cafes, pubs and tearooms. Lyme Regis is a wonderful location for those looking for a traditional seaside break, there are a wide selection of independent shops, as well as an award winning museum and small theatre.

For the more adventurous the South West Coast Path heads west through the amazing Undercliff between Lyme Regis and Axmouth, or east towards Charmouth and the magnificent National Trust land at Golden Cap. For those planning a holiday without a car, the mainline railway station in nearby Axminster is served by a regular bus service (or taxis), to and from the town.
