Full description


Sherborne Lane is a picturesque and quiet pedestrian lane of quaint period cottages linking Broad Street with the Old Town and the River Lym. The town centre shops and seafront are just a short walk away and the latter can be approached via Langmoor Gardens which are almost opposite the top of the lane.

The cottage probably dates back to the 1700's and is Grade II Listed. It has a thatched roof and there are many character features.

Whilst the property offers modern amenities including gas central heating it would benefit from some refurbishment. The thatch has recently been overhauled by a local thatcher.

In addition to the generous accommodation a particular attraction of the property is the pretty rear garden and courtyard.

Lyme Regis is an historic small coastal town noted for its many character buildings, century's 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 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.
