There is just that something about being an island nation that has always enticed us out onto the sea. Now is your chance to be out on the open ocean and enjoy the Dorset Coast from the sea as well as land. The Cobb and the Victorian pier today provides protection for boats, the Town Beach and the town itself. This makes Lyme Regis a great place for watersports from the beginner to the experienced an ideal place to hop aboard and take a boat or fishing trip.
There is something immensely satisfying about catching your own supper when you are on a self catering holiday. In Lyme Regis (as well as Swanage and Weymouth) mackerel fishing and deep sea fishing trips are hugely popular and great fun for the whole family. Beware: competition can get fierce! These fishing trips are also a great way to get to know a local salty sea dog (almost always Dorset born and bred) and take advantage of their immense knowledge. Book a beautiful self catering holiday cottage with a barbecue and enjoy your own catch of the day! All of the following will give you the opportunity to catch your supper Harry May, Nick, Lyme Bay Charters and Amaretto!
