A SPACIOUS MODERN PURPOSE BUILT FIRST FLOOR RETIREMENT APARTMENT. QUIETLY TUCKED AWAY YET CLOSE TO THE TOWN CENTRE


Lyme Bay Court is a 2-storey modern block of 4 quality retirement apartments situated within the ground of Lyme Regis Nursing Home. It enjoys a quiet location overlooking Lyme Bay about 1/4 mile from the town centre shops and the seafront.

No. 5 is on the first floor with easy access via a ramp designed with elderly and wheelchair users in mind.

Lyme Bay Court is conveniently located for the town centre and seafront. There are local bus routes operating nearby from Holmbush Car Park which travel to the nearby market town of Axminster (with a mainline railway station to London Waterloo and Exeter) and also to Dorchester, Weymouth and Exeter.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre, cinema and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
