WHERE TO STAY . . .
WHAT TO DO . . .
Scour the beach for fossils, have a root around the Lyme Regis Antique & Craft Centre on the seafront, wander the backstreets lined with pretty, pastel coloured houses and visit The Town Mill - a working flour water mill with galleries, artists studios, a cafe and artisan shops.
WHERE TO EAT . . .
Hix was recommended to us but the reviews seemed to be a bit hit and miss so we didn’t bother. We stopped by The Galley Cafe on Broad Street for coffee. Their gourmet Cornish pasties by The Posh Pasty Co. were delicious!
WHERE TO SHOP . . .
Ryder & Hope is a lovely homewares store owned by two friends with backgrounds in retail and design. They sell all kinds of tasteful products that are both practical and beautiful from their old fashioned, double fronted shop.
Molesworth & Bird is owned by another couple of friends with backgrounds in interior styling and a mutual love of nature and the outdoors. A penchant for pressing seaweed foraged on the shores near to their homes in Cornwall and Dorset inspired the duo to set up 2 shops in their respective home towns, offering framed natural pressings, limited edition art prints, greetings cards, post cards, tea towels, cushions and enamelware.
WHAT TO BRING HOME FROM YOUR TRIP . . .
A seaweed souvenir from Molesworth & Bird is a must with many pretty designs to chose from. Or how about some cosy alpaca bed socks or beeswax candles from Ryder & Hope. Don’t forget a Cornish pasty for the road from The Galley Cafe!
