The Details

Wainhouse is a timber framed, Cedar clad former cart barn providing a unique stay close to the Devon - Dorset border on the infamous Jurassic Coast. Inside, exposed plywood walls strike a contemporary - eco atmosphere. The interiors combine contemporary and vintage furniture and furnishings, work from local artists, culminating in a clean, simple & cosy environment.

Downstairs there is a poured resin floor providing a statement foundation for the living area, with wood burning stove and sliding patio doors providing beautiful natural light in the mornings. The soaring ceilings and sense of light are helped by the open plan first floor but that also means there are some airline walls and open stairs so you need to be careful with very little ones.

The majority of this 'passive house' style home is on the ground floor & ideal for those wanting an easy life. Open plan kitchen, dining and living areas all open out onto the patio space and fully enclosed garden, via floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors.

The Master King bedroom, bath and shower rooms are on the ground floor, making it accessible for those less mobile, recovering from injuries etc. 

Upstairs there is a second double bedroom. Please note there are privacy shutters between the 2 bedrooms, but they are not fully soundproofed.  There are additional sleep pods in the eaves of the mezzanine floor, for single use (see photo series). Again, please note these are open to the living space below and not fully private or sound proof. 

TV and sound system present and whilst there is Wifi, it is not superfast. Please contact Unique Holiday Stays for an up to date speed reading. 

Hillside location above Uplyme valley, away from the main drag and bustling resort town of Lyme Regis, but within walking distance. 

There is great outside living space; the large patio includes an abundance of seating area and a bbq, and the last of the sun's rays can be enjoyed on a hazel wood bench in the corner of the dry river bed garden. The immediate surrounding and neighnours are very quiet, so this is an excellent location for combining a peaceful quiet escape, with the benefits of being close to nearby resorts. 

 

 

Important Property Notes

The property has its own access with private off-road parking outside for two cars.

It is a 7 min drive to the seafront at Lyme Regis (or if you are feeling energetic a 25 min beautiful walk down through Uplyme, please bear in mind the walk back is UPHILL so you may need a taxi back.)

Please note that the property is heated predominantly by the wood burning stove which is easy to use (full instructions provided), efficient and heats up the whole space quickly. Logs are complimentary from the owner wood store next door. In addition, there is a Dimplex Oil Free column radiator to place as necessary.

Bed linen and bath towels are provided, but not beach towels. Please bring your own beach towels if you want to spend time on the beach.
