Lyme Regis

Dating back to medieval times, Lyme Regis has a long and fascinating history. Writers Jane Austen and John Fowles made the place their home, and it even features in one of Jane Austen's books (Persuasion). Smart Regency and Victorian buildings give it a real air of elegance, while you can get a great sea view on The Cobb, Lyme's famous harbour wall.
