Lyme Regis is a mediaeval port full of quaint old streets and historic buildings.
As a resort, it is considered quite unspoilt, but has most of the shops and amenities that one would require.

The area is renowned for its beauty and temperate climate all the year round making it ideal for coastal and inland walks. There are numerous famous and popular attractions in the immediate area and it is an ideal centre from which to explore the other historic and exciting towns nearby.

A most attractive feature is The Cobb (first built around 1300) full of small fishing boats and yachts. From here you can take a fishing trip or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll around the harbour.

There are a host of leisure activities to enjoy – sailing, power boating, a cliff top golf course and a bowling club.

The Gables Holiday Apartments
What we do

Our ambition is to provide a good standard of accommodation in a brilliant location at a reasonable price. Having arrived and parked your car on site you are 100m walk from The Marine Parade and the town which has everything you may require including two supermarkets which are open early until late

Accommodation standard

The accommodation is inspected yearly and is rated three star. This is not the same as a three star hotel but is a good standard for a holiday home providing everything you require. We include bedding so there is no need to bring your own. We reinvest yearly to improve what we offer while maintaining our reasonable prices

About us

We moved to Lyme Regis permanently in 1987 having previously lived and worked in Oxfordshire. Our children were becoming independent and we decided to spend our future in the place we had grown to love having spent many holidays and weekends in a cottage we owned in the old town a short walk from the sea

The Gables, an established and successful self catering business provided us with a project and occupation. The location and facilities offered everything a family or group require for a seaside holiday


The apartments are in three interconnected two storey buildings in the old town. Because we are in the town the ground floor accommodation has little outlook but those on the first floor have glimpses of the sea and old town. The car park is at the rear.


Facilities include a guest laundry and lounge where you can relax away from the family and enjoy a coffee and read what the area has to offer. The apartments have fully equipped kitchens dining and lounge areas with digital TV which after some teething problems now usually provide lots of channels. DVD and VHS players are available and we have a good stock of films for all ages. We also have games, books and beach toys for your use. There are outside tables and chairs.

Our service

We live very close the The Gables and are on site every day to greet guests and do what we can to ensure you enjoy your stay.
