  • Description


    Our home is a substantial 19th century grade two listed heritage property set in beautiful grounds just 2 km from the Jurassic Dorset coast, popular with tourists from across the globe.
    We are situated on the edge of Lyme Regis, famous for fossil discoveries, its spectacular coastline and with easy access to the South West Coast Path, ideal for walkers. The area is perfect for road cycling and mountain biking, hiking and kayaking. Mid-September this year and we even found ourselves swimming with a dolphin on the bay!
    We offer a bedroom, breakfast and evening meal in return for 4-5 hours work per day.

    We would like to host respectful and considerate guests who are prepared to work reliably, honestly and skilfully.

    We are a family of 5 with children from 8-19, all very happy and friendly. I am an experienced language teacher, which may be of interest to any prospective international visitors. However, in term time, I am usually at work in the day, but home (and sociable!) from 4pm.

    We look forward to meeting you and hope you will have a wonderful time at our home.

    There’s a bus stop within a few minutes walk or you can easily walk into Lyme Regis. The train station in Axminster provides easy links to cities such as Exeter and London. I can normally collect from the railway station.
