THE HOUSE & GROUNDS
Haye House may have been a 17th century manor farm house that was enlarged in the early 19th century hence the elegant regency façade and bow windows overlooking the back garden. The house is listed Grade II and has light, well proportioned rooms maintained to a high standard by the present owners. They recently converted the stone Cider House into a self contained cottage which is approached via a cobbled courtyard. Many original architectural features remain and include: sash windows, shutters, brass door fittings, many original doors and attractive ceiling cornicing. The front elevation windows are unusual and particularly striking. The garden is beautifully landscaped with lawns and borders containing a wide variety of flowering shrubs and plants. The walled garden is sunny and sheltered; the lily pond and rill provide a delightful background to the paved terrace. Leading off the garden but also with a separate access from the highway are the fields which slope down to the River Lym. There is a productive vegetable and soft fruit garden.
Lyme Regis was laid siege to in the civil war. The besieging royalists under Prince Maurice made Haye House their headquarters. More recently actress Meryl Streep lived in the house while filming The French Lieutenant's Woman.
