Lyme Regis, Dorset, England
Tucked away in an exceptionally tranquil part of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by wooded hills, country lanes and abundant wildlife, yet only a short drive to the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Coast.  The popular seaside town of Lyme Regis, the charming fishing village of Beer and picturesque Branscombe are all within 15 minutes.   Axminster, home of the famous River Cottage Canteen, is 10 minutes away while their Park Farm HQ is even closer.  A 30-minute drive will take you to the elegant Regency resort of Sidmouth.

The Byre is in the grounds of Bulmoor Farmhouse, which dates from 1797 and is listed by English Heritage as a building of “Special Architectural and Historical Importance”.   The present owners, using traditional skills and materials, have painstakingly restored both buildings, and the...

About the neighbourhood
Many Bulmoor Farmhouse guests are happy to simply use he Byre as a country retreat, enjoying the relaxing ambience of the accommodation itself, and the tranquillity of its natural surroundings. But this is not to say that the local area does not have a wide enough variety of other options:

The coast is undoubtedly the major attraction, especially for children. The continually changing geology that led to its status as a World Heritage Site, from the spectacular red sandstone cliffs of the west, to the white chalk of the middle section and the fossil-bearing blue lais just beyond Lyme, has also produce a whole range of different beach types, which include the massive, 20km long, shingle bank that is Chesil Beach at its eastern extremity.

The most popular sandy beaches are to be found...
