Fernhill Hotel // Lyme Regis, West Dorset

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

As I mentioned a few of posts ago, Tristan and I took a weekend trip down south for his birthday in July. We stayed in a cute little countryside hotel called Fernhill in Lyme Regis. It gets really busy during the summer and because it is a small town, almost every single hotel/guest house/cottage was fully booked before I had even made our booking. Fernhill was the closest available hotel and was about 2 miles from Lyme Regis - there was only one double room left so I booked it immediately for two nights.

We arrived on Friday evening and from the outside it didn't look like a hotel at all! When we stepped inside I felt such a positive atmosphere. Fernhill is such a lovely hotel which instantly makes you feel like you're at home - quiet and welcoming.

Fernhill is situated on a tiny hill and is surrounded with beautiful scenery, although sadly we didn't have a very nice view from our window. Our room was amazing and beautifully decorated though! I was happy as there was a lot of storage space and room to keep your things. I usually bring so much with me when I travel and being quite organised I hate to live from my suitcase! The bathroom was also modern, very clean and had everything we needed.

I also spotted an old Singer sewing machine in the reception area. I remember we had almost the same one at home when I was younger!

Fernhill also has a cafe-bar area where we headed after checking out the room and unpacking our bags. We both had a very English dinner - fish and chips! I remember I couldn't believe how quiet the hotel was, Tristan and I were almost whispering while we had our meal. 

We had a lovely romantic dinner the next day in their restaurant. We were the only people in the room! I was really surprised with our dinner, it was well presented and tasted amazing! We had a starter, main and a dessert.
Overall, I really enjoyed our stay at Fernhill. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bed was soft and comfortable and the big jar full of homemade cookies in our room just made my day! We spent a really nice weekend there and I enjoyed not being in town. You don't often get a hotel surrounded by nature but still within walking distance to town.
