Whitsbury is an imposing Victorian house constructed principally of stone walls beneath a slate roof. It was originally built as a substantial ‘gentleman’s residence’ in 1864.

'Whitsbury' is unique in being probably the only stone built house in the area. Flat 1 wraps around and occupies the majority of the ground of the building. All five of the apartments are fitted with wooden double glazing and have their own private entrances. Holiday letting is allowed.

Lyme Regis is a much sought-after 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 centre of Bridport is 15-20 minutes by car.

In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.
