“Cosy, historic, semi-detached cottage with excellent amenities and fantastic hosts”
Reviewed November 12, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a lovely time chilling out: it is a great place for getting away from it all. Small, but comfortable, with everything you need and lots of individual features. Our hosts were very friendly, and there for anything that we might need. There were fresh flowers and and a welcome pack, with local ale and other local produce waiting for us, and Rose brought us more flowers from the garden the following week. It is a character property that has been renovated and decorated to a high standard. The local shop is about 5 minutes walk and well stocked. Further afield, it's a lovely walk into Lyme along the river path - less strenuous than the hills you encounter if you take the road. There are also buses into Lyme running from the top of the road if you don't fancy walking or driving. We walked into Lyme a few times for lunch and evening meals. We really enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful.
A warm welcome from our lovely hosts. And Little Roost is warm and welcoming too.
We loved the riverside walk down into Lyme and enjoyed breakfasts and star-gazing on the roof terrace.
Comfortable and very well equipped.

“Great little place”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

This place is only small, but great for a couple to stay in. We also brought our small baby (10 months - we brought our own travel cot), although not perfect for a small baby crawling about, it was adequate (much better for a couple). The bedroom was large enough for a travel cot and still space to get around the room. The location was perfect for us, on a quiet lane a short walk from Uplyme pub etc, and right by the footpath to Lyme Regis (20ish minutes walk away).

The facilities were great, comfy bed, good shower (no bath), good kitchen, sofa and TV. Everything you need to relax. There was even tea, coffee and milk on arrival so we didn't have to go to the shop immediately. For sunny days there is a small outside space to lounge and read a book. The wifi was a little dodgy occassionally (you needed to be near the range extender), but this wasn't a problem for us.

Overall a great place, we would highly recommend it.

Really enjoyed our stay with one of the highlights being the walk from the cottage into Lyme which was beautiful. We hardly used the car and were able to unwind in the peaceful location.

Hi Lorraine - good to hear you enjoyed your stay and made the most of the riverside walk into Lyme along the East Devon Way. August has brought fabulous sunny weather this year and the sea has been incredibly blue. Hope you'll visit again some day. best wishes, Rose

“Lovely stone cottage in lovely position”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely welcome from Rosemary who provided us lovely treats awaiting us in the kitchen. Cottage has 1 room downstairs comprising kitchen/lounge/diner but surprisingly spacious. Upstairs via spiral open staircase a spacious bedroom and bathroom with fantastic shower you just don't want to get out of! Lovely comfortable bed and everything is beautifully clean and very pretty. The roof garden over the carport is a lovely place to sit. The East Devon Way is right outside the door and a 20 min walk to The Cobb in Lyme, much gentler walk than via road. Thank you Rosemary, we will return.

“Ideal in every way”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Little Roost was perfect for our needs, had everything, and we were charmed by the welcome and "light touch" from Rose, our host. I would suggest it's a real alternative to looking for a place in Lyme itself as Little Roost is quiet, has off -road private parking; yet is a short walk down to the beach front.
