The Little Seaside Town of Lyme Regis

To celebrate mothers day and a rare blanket of blue sky we headed to the picturesque seaside town of Lyme Regis in Dorset. Famous for it’s jurassic coast line, Lyme Regis provides more than just glorious ocean views and irresistible fish and chips on the beach. It is also home to a thriving hub of unique, one-of-a-kind shops. I have been buying crystals from one particular shop since I was a child, and along with it’s million year old fossils it’s the perfect place to pick up a real treasure of a souvenir. Further along the narrow paths lined with pastel pink and blue houses live the most charming antique shops, local art and crafts studios and chocolate box boutiques that sell everything from nautical apparel to precious trinkets that leave you feeling blessed to have stumbled upon them.

My camera was absent last week so I decided to dust off some photographs from my archives, which I took during a visit to celebrate my mums birthday, a year ago. Even though the photos were taken a little while ago, Lyme Regis remains the same, including all those little shops!

Afterwards we strolled along the beach, taking in the darkening horizon and leaving jolly foot prints in the sand. Lyme Regis is such a beautiful place, so if you ever find yourself in Dorset, be sure to pay it a visit.

    Lovely photos that beautifully picture everything great about British coasts – my favourite kind of holiday! We're heading to Cornwall for Christmas – In fact, I just discovered you because I'm doing chocolate slabs and saw yours back from 2012 x
