“We'll be back!”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I've just returned from a perfect weekend in Lyme Regis staying at The White House.
From the offset when enquiring about the house Terry, the owner, was helpful and friendly making the planning of a group holiday a little less stressful.
The whole party - 12 adults - were extremely happy with the house. There are no 'bad' rooms, everything was clean and comfortable, and the facilities were spot on.
Whether we were cooking and sitting down to eat (comfortably at one table) or relaxing in the living room nothing had been forgotten. A home from home!
We didn't even use one reception room, the games room, which was well kitted out with games consoles and table football... wine and food was more on the agenda for this weekend.
In terms of location it is perfectly positioned at the top of the high street. Right in the heart of Lyme Regis, but still somewhere peaceful to retreat to.
To top it all off Terry and his wife (and a friend) acted as a first rate taxi service to take us to the River Cottage on the Saturday night, picking us up at 11pm. A 5 star service.
The whole group were so complimentary about the weekend and the house played such a central role in making sure the weekend was perfect for everyone.
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone having a large party - both for families and adults. We'll be back

“Perfectly equipped for large groups!”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were a party of 14 adults and one baby. Every room was comfortable. The kitchen had everything you'd need. The place was so clean that you could eat your dinner off the floor! Almost a bathroom for every room. Great location, price and views out to the sea from the top level. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful house in a great location”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at The White House for the weekend with 11 guests and had a great time. Rooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds and great views, lovely kitchen & dining area with everything you could need and all very clean. Right next to the high street and only a short downhill walk to the sea! We want to come back every weekend!

“Fantastic seaside holiday house for a big group”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the outside it is a picture-perfect traditional seaside villa, on the inside it is smart and modern. Loads of space for a big group, with lovely large sitting rooms and a light and well-equipped kitchen, but also separate shower rooms for all the bedrooms, so everyone had their own space. And the location is great - 5 minutes walk from the beach and the center of Lyme. Definitely recommend.
