Gracious living within a splash of the seaside

Stroll to the beach and harbour. Catch crabs. Hunt for fossils. Watch the fishing boats come and go. And head to Hix Oyster Bar for dinner.

Bucket-and-spade holidays begin here

The path takes you down to Cobb Harbour, to golden sands and to coastal walks.  Follow it back again to Springfield House, a sprawling home just beyond the sea spray of Lyme Regis, with one foot in Devon, one in Dorset.

Style and character oozes from the six bedrooms, the conservatory, the snug, the big kitchen and the gardens.  Inside, it’s all restoration and furnishing by a top interior designer.  Fling open the French windows, chill in the conservatory, discover your family again in the dining room.

Outside, the garden terrace invites barbecues, beer and wine, while the kids go wild in the grounds and games room.  From here, it’s just a stroll to the fossil beaches, the crab-catching, the boat trips and the oyster bars of the Jurassic Coast.

Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis, the “Pearl of Dorset”, is famous for its fossils, its historic old town, its Cobb and its beaches. Guests love it…”This house is fantastic, beautiful decor, well located and to die for”.

Living Spaces

You’ll relax the second you step into Springfield House, greeted by a luxurious chaise longue in the light, airy hall.

Light streams through the conservatory, opening onto the garden and decking, and the hall opens through into the big, stylish drawing room with adjoining lounge area, the swish dining room, snug with TV and a well equipped kitchen and breakfast area.

The main reception rooms open out onto the beautiful garden and decking. Drink on the decked viewing area and drink in the beautiful bay. Dine alfresco, chill on the terrace, try gracious living in an English garden.

Downstairs there’s a massive games room with table tennis, table football and air hockey – perfect for the young and young at heart.

Cooking and Dining

We want you to enjoy every moment of your stay at Springfield House so whatever your desire for food and drink, we can help. If you love cooking then help yourselves to the bright, well equipped kitchen. Dine together in the light filled dining room or out on the terrace. Alternatively, if you’d like a little or a lot of help then we offer everything from casseroles dropped off ready for the oven to waitress-served in-house catering. Or sample fine cuisine at Hix Oyster Bar, a short walk away.

Looking for a special meal without any fuss? Our highly rated chefs will prepare a celebratory meal to order, all cooked and cleared out of the way. Once the plates are cleared, they’ll leave you to enjoy the rest of the evening. Highly recommended by our guests is Lyme Bay Field Kitchen, who can provide anything from a three course meal to a BBQ.

For special occasions, we can arrange all kinds of catering – from a simple buffet, to a summer BBQ or a fully catered holiday. Just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll sort it out.


Springfield house has six spacious, ultra-stylish bedrooms.   The master bedroom is a big, double aspect room with views across to the sea, a kingsize bed and a massive ensuite bathroom.

There are two further ensuite bedrooms which can be made up as kingsize or twins, and a family room with a kingsize (or twin) bed and bunk bed – all three rooms with sea views.

There are two further kingsize or twin rooms sharing the family bathroom, with woodland views.

Fantastic holiday! Adults and children all had a brilliant time in this stunning house and location - Megan & Phil
We had a fabulous week at Springfield House. The House is amazing and every bit as lovely as we imagined it. So perfect for our family reunion and get together. Three generations with plenty of space for us all – to be together – and also to chill out and have our own space too. If ever we need the “big” house again in Dorest we would definitely come back. Thank you so much for all your help and making the arranging of this holiday plain sailing! - Elaine
I booked Springfield House for my husband's 50th Birthday celebration with a group of 14 family and friends. The website images looked good but were surpassed by the house itself. Springfield somehow managed to be homely and wonderfully equipped and comfortable yet still be beautifully decorated, chic and fantastically located. The car park was great for all the cars (room for 8 spaces) and the teenage kids and some of the 50 year old ones too loved the snooker and games rooms - Jules
I said “WOW” when I arrived and as I’m leaving – “WOW – Truly AMAZING WEEKEND”. Beautiful house and privileged to stay here. - Clare
Truly lovely house, which afforded us the greatest way to celebrate a 40th birthday and get to know and love Lyme Regis. We all, without exception, will be coming back – could not fault anything. - Vicky
Our caterers did a fantastic job, James was brilliant, Hix was brilliant, simply the best sea food ever! - Richard

Minutes away from timeless beaches

Where the hedgerows end, the timeless beaches of the Jurassic Coast begin. Swim and sunbathe; potter the Coastal Path. Sink an oyster or six at Hix as the fishing smacks chug in and out.
