The Details

With stately sandstone archways and enormous corridors this holiday home oozes grandeur, yet has an abundance of eclectic and personalised interiors to make you feel right at home. Sir John's House sleeps up to 14 guests across 6 bedrooms, and with deceptively spacious living space and grounds outside it will make the most memorable of stays for your family and friends. 

Formerly the residence of Admiral the Honourable Sir John Talbot during the 19th century, the house perches proudly overlooking the Lim Valley and retains more than an air of splendour. On a summers day, you can saunter amongst the 7 acres of garden and meadowland and listen to nothing more than the crickets and birds. 

On the ground floor you'll find a versatile country kitchen, with a range style Belling hob and breakfast seating area for 6. A games room with pool and table tennis table can be found off the kitchen. To the rear of the property facing the coast is an extraordinary room of around 20 metres in length with a huge bay window and beautiful and unique oak carving

The first floor encompasses four of the bedrooms - with two double bedrooms off the main corridor. The master superking bedroom is south facing with views over the grounds, Lim Valley and Jurassic Coast beyond. Adjoining the master bedroom is a very useful childrens room including two single beds, in addition to a set of bunk beds. There is also a snug, bathroom and shower room on the first floor. 

Climbing the stairway to the 2nd floor and the views become even grander. Here there are two further south facing bedrooms both with sensational views toward Lyme Regis. Both bedrooms are very roomy, with super king size beds and seating. There is a shared bathroom on the second floor. Please note that there is no shower on this top floor. 

Access to the lawned garden and mixed meadow woodland is from the rear of the property on the ground floor. Guests can enjoy full access to the grounds, where a thousand games of hide and seek await. There is outside seating for 10 and a dual fuel six burner bbq for making the most of the late summer evenings. 

Whilst there is WiFi and phone signal, there is a purposeful lack of technology at Sir John's House. This is perfectly inkeeping with its historic and idyll location and makes this unique holiday stay a digital detox! 

With fossil hunting, paddle boarding and some excellent eateries down in Lyme Regis, this incredible home has all the potential to become a firm guest favourite.
