I stayed here in June for 5 nights with my partner in room 4, we were made to feel very welcome by Wayne and Ann who were very helpful. The bedroom and indeed the whole house was very clean and tidy and the breakfasts were second to none. There is plenty of on site parking and the property is conveniently... More

Hi, Thank you for your positive comments and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Our breakfasts are a favourite with customers especially as the trend is to non cooked in some establishments. We like to produce a hearty cooked breakfast if customers enjoy it, with other choices as well. We invest a lot into cleanliness, thank you.... More

Excellent location, just a short walk into Lyme, and the car park is a great bonus. The room was very clean, although a little on the small side, but this was more than made up for by the lovely view. Wayne & Ann were friendly and welcoming, Ann in particular went out of her way to find me things to... More

Tiny double room and minute en-suite marred our stay at this very clean and well appointed B&B. I expected more for the 4-stars and the £82 per night. Fortunately we were out for most of the days. Parking is extremely convenient.

Disappointed to see this and the tone of it. Just a touch mean in my view and in comparison to other reviews that we have had. This room is within double guidelines and is well appointed as he admits and very clean. It has comfortable bed and chairs to enjoy the view over town to sea. If the room was... More

We have visited twice this year this well run, clean B and B. The property is located near the clock end of Lyme Regis and not the harbour . However, this is ideal for access by foot into the town, via the river and a very scenic walk of about ten minutes. The property has a good sized car park... More

Wayne and Anne run this place with loving care and attention to detail. It isn't expensive and boutique- it is a traditional B&B that gets all the basics right- it is immaculately clean, with comfortable beds, clean towels every day, smashing touches like a little tea pot in the room. Delicious breakfast that wasn't over facing but was well cooked... More

Clean, comfortable, lovely view from the room, and a top-notch breakfast, but what really set the Charnwood apart was the warm welcome from Wayne and Ann - very accommodating, happy to chat, and full of local knowledge. I'd recommend this B&B to anyone.

We stayed four nights in this charming B&B. We were lodged in the top floor family room which worked really well, as my daughter and I used the double bed, and my son slept round the corner in a single. Very well appointed, with an ensuite shower room. Clean towels, soap and shower cream every day. Room thoroughly cleaned and... More

Rooms were kept very clean and well serviced during our 2 night stay. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice in the nice dining room. Parking was good and nice 10 minute stroll into Town. However the rooms we had (a double and single) were too small, especially the double with an ensuite which was just big enough to turn around... More

Very sad to see this one as we had no idea there was a problem. In this case i placed the parents next to their son as i thought this would help them. If they had said someting i could have moved them to another double , which would have helped their stay and avoided the need for a comment... More
