Snaptrip says

Lynch Cottage in Devon is a well-loved, secluded retreat praised for its peaceful woodland setting and sea views. Guests appreciate the fully enclosed garden, ideal for dogs, and the cosy, well-equipped interiors. While some find the lounge furniture less comfortable, the charm and tranquillity of the cottage, along with its proximity to the Jurassic Coast, make it a favoured holiday spot.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The majority of guests found the cottage clean and well-maintained, though one mentioned a musty smell and suggested improvements in cleaning tools. Overall, the property is kept to a high standard of cleanliness.

The cottage's location is highly praised for its seclusion, quietness, and proximity to the sea and coastal paths. Its private setting surrounded by woodland and views of the sea is a highlight for many visitors.

Guests find the beds comfortable and the cottage warm. However, several reviews mention that the lounge furniture could be more comfortable, which suggests room for improvement in this area.

The property is well-furnished and equipped, with a range cooker and table tennis being notable features. Some guests felt that the TV could be updated and better signage provided. Overall, the facilities meet guests' needs but could benefit from minor enhancements.

There is no mention of gifts or special touches that would indicate thoughtfulness from the hosts. Therefore, this category cannot be scored, and guests should not expect gifts during their stay.

About this property

Lyme Regis 2.6 miles. Occupying a wonderful, elevated position with simply breath-taking views over the sea and beyond, is this spacious, detached property, Lynch Cottage. Perfect for large families or get-togethers of friends and family, Lynch Cottage offers extensive and well-presented accommodation resting in stunning gardens which are a delight to spend time in. You can imagine spending many happy hours alfresco soaking up the sunshine with the children (and dogs!) running around safely while the grown-ups chill out and really get into the holiday vibe. There is an outside table tennis table which is great for whiling away time on holiday and really brings out guests’ competitive spirit! The accommodation is as attractive on the inside as it is on the outside with a warm and welcoming sitting room complete with feature woodburning stove and ample seating helping to create a space which is ideal for gathering together and catching up with tales of holiday activities. Step into the elegant dining room which has feature parquet flooring and another woodburning stove, a great area for joining together to eat, drink and be merry! The kitchen is fully fitted with everything you need to cook up healthy fayre for the holiday party and your efforts will be rewarded with lots of memorable family meals together either in the inviting dining room or out on the patio where you can enjoy some captivating views at the same time. As the sun sets over the horizon and bedtime calls, take your pick from any of the four beautifully presented bedrooms including three twins and a king-size. All offer a calming sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of holiday life. Whilst Lynch Cottage enjoys a gorgeously secluded setting, it is also within walking distance along the South West Coastal Path to both Lyme Regis and Seaton. Lyme Regis has a good collection of shops and amenities, a museum and aquarium as well as a beach, harbour and causeway whilst Seaton boasts a popular tramway, a shingle beach and striking white and red cliffs. Jump in the car for a short but scenic drive to attractions such as Beer Quarry Caves, Pecorama, the Jurassic Fun Centre, Tunnel Tree Tops and Axe Valley Wildlife Park. Lynch Cottage offers an oasis of holiday calm.

The delightful seaside town of Lyme Regis has much to offer its visitors, boasting a maze of narrow streets filled with craft and antique shops, galleries and cafes. Take a stroll along the world-famous Cobb causeway overlooking the ancient harbour, where fishing trips can be enjoyed, or try your hand at fossil hunting in the area. The scenic coastal path offers excellent walking opportunities and spectacular views of the stunning Jurassic coast, whilst the gently shelving sands and sparkling waters of Lyme Bay provide the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. A holiday destination to savour!

    Could have done with a couple of extra tea towels and bin bags (or told beforehand to bring them). A couple of bulbs weren't working.

    A short walk directly from the cottage through unspoilt and well maintained woodland takes you directly onto the south coast path. We enjoyed days out followed by relaxing evenings sitting on the patio with a drink, listening to and watching the birds flying about the wooded valley. We were a party of 5 (+dog) and the only improvement we would make to the accommodation would be to have more comfortable furniture in the lounge to relax in after our days out. Also, a sign to the cottage from the main road, or even half way down the track would be useful, as there is no indication at all that you are in the vicinity of the accommodation. We will definitely be returning at some point.

    .we had the perfect time there..the cottage was stunning, clean and had everything we needed. The outdoor space was great for the dogs, and we didn’t have to worry about traffic or people, as it’s very secluded. I would recommend Lynch cottage to anyone and we would definitely go back and stay..superb
