Certificate of Excellence - “Thank you to everyone who has given me a review on Trip Advisor”, see here.

I’ve lived in Lyme since 1950 and have never before seen the tide quite so low. I just walked forty yards out from the end of the Cobb on the sand and my boots were dry. Now no doubt, over all those years, the tide has been out that far, but, for me, I have never witnessed it out like this.

Not that I want to encourage anyone to wander outside, but if you were on your daily exercise tomorrow, Thursday April 9th just before 2pm, it’s due to go out even further and the harbour mouth will be completely empty of water – a rare sight indeed.

With wonderful high pressure laying over u,s in a normal year Lyme Regis would be gearing up for a very busy weekend with all the signs looking good for crowds visiting over the holiday period. The reality is somewhat different. At the moment I can see one person on the Cobb, three people and two dogs on the beach and two couples on the sea front. Who would ever have thought the present situation could ever possibly arise.

No Lyme Regis mackerel fishing or Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips for the foreseeable future but at least the fish are happy!
