About Us

Lyme Tree House is situated in Raymonds Hill near Axminster and Lyme Regis in wonderful, quiet countryside on the border of East Devon and West Dorset.

Our house is a Chalet Bungalow situated up a sloping drive which gives us wonderful views of the Blackdown Hills. Sunsets can be spectacular viewed from the guest deck at the front of the house with a glass of wine! We have 3/4 of an acre of mostly wildlife garden with many trees, rhododendrons and azaleas as well as spring bulbs. We are regularly visited by young deer and rabbits as well as many different garden birds. Guests are welcome to look round the garden and use the the bench, table and chairs on the front deck. On a clear night the stars are an amazing sight as we suffer from very little light pollution.

Judith and Mark have worked in the Customer Service industry for a total of 72 years between them! Our aim is always to give friendly, courteous and professional service. We have a good knowledge of the local area to help our guests make the most of their time at Lyme Tree House. We enjoy being in the countryside, walking our dog Shelby, visiting historic houses and gardens and of course, trying out the local hostelries!

Lyme Tree House is well situated for both River Cottage HQ, the River Cottage Kitchen and Deli and Mark Hix's Restaurant in Lyme Regis (Hix's Oyster and Fish House). There are many other local pubs and restaurants well worth a visit also. Judith and Mark are always happy to offer suggestions and details can also be found in the Welcome Pack in each room.
