If you have followed us here on this blog, you would have noticed by now that we love small, independent businesses especially prevalent in small towns. On our visit to Lyme Regis, we were able to see some of these thriving and mostly independent shops, stores and restaurants.
If you looked up Safar Restaurant on Google Maps you would be forgiven if it did not appeal in the least. But you would be mistaken, located right in the middle of an industrial estate, no stranger to large rumbling lorries and the deserted quietness of the end of a busy day, Safar was a […]
Just after the Lyme Regis shingles and sandy beaches, is the Fossil Beach. Also, known as Monmouth Beach, this approximately 1 mile stretch of pebble beach comes with a twist. The pebbles and rocks are from the Jurassic age and may contain fossils and large ammonites. On some stretches of the beach, the rocks are […]
Looking for a beach with soft and golden ivory sand when in Dorset, visit Studland Bay. There are four different beaches in the bay plus another small beach on the neighbouring bay called Shell Bay. These sandy beaches are, South Beach, Middle Beach (which we feature in an earlier post), Knoll Beach and Naturist Beach.
Mere paces from the water, almost uniform with the rest of the wooden beach huts that line the beach, the Knoll Bookshop is a pleasant surprise on the Studland Bay. For anyone who has come to the beach without their summer read, the bookshop is a life saver.

However, right above the Cobb Gate Car Park, the venerable Bell Cliff restaurant stands next to a crystal shop, overlooking The […]
We made Chedington our base for our visit to the Jurassic Coast. There is a stretch of coastline in southern England in the counties of Dorset and Devon that have been home to the creatures of the past from eras bygone. Entire fossilised skeletons of dinosaurs, ammonites calcified in rock all lay about to be […]
Lyme Regis Beach along the stunning Jurassic Coastline of southern England is a captivating stretch of coastline that boasts both natural beauty and historical significance. With its golden sands, gentle waves, and dramatic cliffs, the beach offers a picturesque setting for leisurely walks, sun-soaked afternoons, and fossil hunting adventures.
A small surprise find on our visit to Lyme Regis, a row of quirky and eclectic seafront houses. Most of these have been turned into holiday lets but they are still glorious nonetheless.
Food halls, sometimes also known as food courts are common in Asia. Modern, clean and spacious, they can be found in shopping malls, local markets or independently on their own. Unlike restaurants and cafes on the high street, these are stalls offering a variety of food found under one roof.
