  The Detail...

Owned by the celebrated chef and food writer, Mark Hix, Hix Townhouse is another meticulous feather in his rather illustrious cap. Gorgeously styled by Mark Hix himself, along with local artists and designers, this boutique townhouse boasts beautifully styled rooms and suites. Located on Lyme Regis bustling high street guests can revel in its fabulous location with access to stunning coastlines and wonderfully relaxed service.

With eight double rooms/suites, the styling is kept wonderfully eclectic with each room having its own definitive style. The natural character of the building, with its wooden floor, beamed ceilings and handsome windows, evidently made the perfect blank canvas for some exquisite interior design. Colour palettes range from wonderfully muted to deep, luxurious hues - and all sit perfectly alongside king or super-king beds, elegantly dressed in crisp white linen.

All rooms and suites have ensuite bathrooms, flatscreen televisions, Nespresso coffee machines, fresh milk and honesty mini bars that stock sublime local spirits - from Black Cow vodka to Salcombe Gin. There is also a communal kitchen where guests are welcome to help themselves to local soft drinks, tea, coffee and biscuits. And keeping things refreshingly different, a beautiful breakfast hamper carefully packed with home-made sweet and savoury delights, Dorset cereals and fresh fruit is hand delivered to your door every morning.

Located just a short stroll from the renowned Hix Oyster & Fish House means you have the best place to eat in town right on your doorstep - and Hix Townhouse guests receive a joyful 10% discount. With floor to ceiling windows and sweeping panoramic views of the Jurassic coast, it really is the best spot in town to sample locally caught fish and seafood.

With sandy beaches, independent shops and some of the best fossil hunting in the UK, Lyme Regis makes the perfect coastal retreat. Excellent eateries include everything from cosy pubs to independent cafes - with plenty of award winners amongst them. And with such stunning produce on the doorstep, it should be no surprise that locally sourced food is at the forefront of most menus.
