Lyme Regis

We take our time this morning, enjoy a leisurely breakfast and then take the 1:15pm bus into Lyme Regis.

It’s a Sunday and this is by far the busiest place we’ve been to. The sun is shining which is lovely.

We wander along the front to The Cobb dodging people who don’t seem to be worrying about the 2m distance rule. The Cobb is the harbour wall that’s featured in the Jane Austen novel Persuasion and also The French Lieutenant’s Woman. It quite exposed, cooler and breezier up here.

We walk back and have a drink in the The Cobb Arms where they are still serving people at the bar!!

Up the hill through the lovely Jane Austen gardens with great views of the bay and the beach which are gleaming in the sunshine.

We walk away from the front, back into town and up, up up the hill to the Nags Head. We met a nice couple from Windsor here and enjoyed a socially distanced chat and free sausage bites on a stick.

Back down the hill to The Volunteer Inn which is opposite the bus stop. It’s very lively in here with a group of men actually singing. We then take the 5:45pm bus back to the campsite.

A strange but enjoyable dinner of halloumi and salad, prawn toast and sweet potato and pepper bhajis, TV and bed to end a fun day on the Jurassic Coast.
