THE PROPERTY

The Tudor is arguably among the most charming and historically significant properties in Lyme Regis. Dating back to around 1570, The Tudor is Grade II Listed with fabulous period features throughout, giving a sense of the history behind this magical home. Once the principal part of The Tudor House Hotel, there remains enormous potential for guest house use, with 2 successful bed and breakfast rooms currently in operation alongside a shop/gallery premises and spacious family accommodation. Further benefits include 2 off road parking spaces and a charming west-facing courtyard garden.

 

The charming gallery is somewhat of a gateway to the wonders within, including an elegant sitting room with an impressive stone fireplace and floorboards. The lower ground floor is arranged as one large, open plan kitchen/family room. This incredible space centres around a medieval well, the stone of which is inlaid with fossils, and features extensive beams, flagstone floors and wooden pillars.

 

A graceful wooden staircase rises to the first floor where three magnificent double bedrooms can be found. The two at the front of the house, which are used for Bed and Breakfast letting, both enjoy ensuite shower rooms. Also on this floor is a useful cloakroom. Three more bedrooms can be found on the second floor including a stunning principal bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and dual aspect windows to the rear. There is also a luxurious bathroom, the centrepiece of which is a fabulous claw footed roll top bath.

OUTSIDE

The Tudor enjoys the enormous benefit of a rear courtyard-style garden which is thoughtfully landscaped for easy maintenance. With a west facing aspect and double doors leading into the kitchen/family room, this is a wonderful place to relax, dine or entertain alfresco. The property benefits from two allocated parking spaces to the rear, to which there is a pedestrian right of way from the back of the property across a neighbouring courtyard.
