Family Holiday

Bucket and Spade adventures start here:

What better way to spend the summer holidays than getting together with friends or extended family and enjoying the great british seaside.

Lyme is the quintessential yet classy seaside town. The Lyme bay provides a dramatic backdrop to the perfect school holiday.

With views of the Lyme Bay and a short walk to the beach, you are never far from the sea at Springfield. And children of all ages will love the town with its smattering of beaches, fossil hunting, water activities and other delights.

Walkers will love to explore the National Nature Reserve at the Undercliff. This seven mile long undeveloped woodland is part of the South West Coastal Path and stretches west towards Axmouth and Seaton. Going east from Lyme, walkers can follow the same path or take the costal footpath, part of the 650 mile South West Coastal Path, towards Charmouth and to Golden Cap. At 629ft, this is the highest point on the south coast. Other dry land activities abound: golfing, bowling, pony trekking and biking are just a few of the options available.

As well as being a great place to swim and sunbathe in the summer, Lyme is a paradise for visitors all year round and many tourists come in the winter during a storm just to watch the waves crashing over The Cobb.

If you prefer a less active holiday, there are a wide range of shops, tourist attractions and restaurants to enjoy.
