Lyme Regis Pitthouse
Lyme Regis, in West Dorset, is in a beautiful location overlooking Lyme Bay on the Channel coast, and is known fondly as the Pearl of Dorset.

It hosts a Fossil Festival, Jazz Festival and Life Boat Week, and there’s also an annual carnival. Lyme Regis is especially good for family holidays, as there is loads of entertainment for the kids, including a skate park and play park, and there are always the scenic coastal walks to enjoy together. The waters are safe and clean thanks to the town’s award-winning protection scheme for the local environment.
Lyme Regis also has numerous small cafés, tea-houses and restaurants, as well as good shops. Parking in Lyme Regis is in high demand, especially in the summer. So avoid the crowds and leave your car in the NCP Lyme Regis car park at Pitthouse before you go off exploring.
