Lyme Regis

Is Lyme Regis quiet? We want a seaside quiet holiday...no amusement arcades or crowds of folk. Just somewhere to chill.

Lyme Regis is a lovely place to have a seaside break.....however as you are asking for a quiet holiday,we stayed at Charmouth about 18 months ago and on that occasion it was extremely quiet,no arcades,.......and it is a 10 minute drive from Lyme Regis.

Lyme Regis and the rest of the Dorset coast is delightful and certainly not too lively.

The only downside of Lyme Regis is trying to park your motorcar ----- it`s a nightmare .

slightly old fashioned as most people just say car - but that suits Lyme.

In season Lyme is packed out with tourists (and there were a fair number of people on a sunny day in winter) but it's not really touristy. Charmouth is quieter and has a beach with a fair amount of sand if you have children to consider.

If you want really soporific carry on into East Devon. The beaches there are pebbly. Seaton is one of those places labelled God's waiting room. It's quiet but Beer or Branscombe might appeal more.

Seaton has the Gateway and Lyme the Marine theatre for possible evening entertainment.

If you do ever want somewhere busier and more touristy Weymouth is further up the Dorset coast,

Lyme is old fashioned, quant, busy with people during holiday periods, hard to park,has aa lovely harbour and small beach but no arcades, fairs or kiss me quick hat. That would all be at Weymouth.

Charmouth is busy people wise with nice beach but not a lot there.

You cannot really escape people on the dorset coast at holiday time.

Lyme Regis is a quietly busy little beach resort with an abundance of cafes and restaurants, fish n chip and ice cream parlours and a reasonable sized amusement arcade. It has a quaint harbour, a sandy beach, pebbly in others, a fab theatre, playing fields for the children and a golf course just up the hill.

Enjoy
