We had an amazing time at this property. Bedrooms are of a very high standard and the owner was extremely helpful. Can’t recommend it enough!!

Response from the owner I am so happy that you had a wonderful time at Westwood and for your very kind words - I hopes we can tempt you back to Lyme Regis again Love Lavinia xx

I booked the house for a surprise weekend for my other half's 60th birthday - he thought it was just the two of us going away but it was actually 16 of us. The house is just beautiful - every ro… More

Response from the owner Hello Helen, I am so pleased to hear that the surprise for your partner's 60th went really well. It is great to hear that you all felt very at home and comfortable at Westwood. Thank you for your kind compliments about the way we have decorated each room to give them all a unique feel. We are so blessed with amazing views of Lyme Regis Jurassic Coast, and where there are views there are hills ! But we have some fantastic local taxis firms that are all run by local people that are very happy to offer short runs back from town or the pubs! We even have a bus that brings you to the top of the road, so it is very easy to get back to Westwood. I wish I could book the weather, but sadly it is in the handle of the BBC weatherman! So hope if you are passing this way that I see you again, you are all so welcome and thank you for the kind and considerate way you left Westwood so tidy. All the best, Lavinia and my super team of helpers xx

Response from the owner Thank you so much Stewart and Linda for your wonderful review. I know it takes time and effort to write a review and really appreciate you letting others know what you thought of staying at Westwood. You certainly got to see the sights and enjoy some of the wonderful walks and attractions that we have in Dorset and Devon. We would love to see you again if you are passing and once again thank you for your kind review. All the best, Lavinia xx

This was the most lovely and comfortable house which suited our party perfectly! Lavinia communicated superbly with us prior to our stay. All of which made for a super weekend.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for others to read. I am so thrilled that you found Westwood to be comfortable and suited your party perfectly :) We would love to see you again when you fancy another whole house party!

“Not to be trusted !”

Lavinia comes across on messages as a great host and property looks amazing, but unfortunately we booked this property and were given a week to pay deposit, Lavinia then messaged us half way through w… More

Response from the owner I'm really sorry youi feel this way Zoe but I did contact you to say that the week would be too long too wait as other people were waiting, you didn't finalise your booking - so naturally I went with the people that were prepared to send a deposit immediately. I think you have been extremely unfair as that wasn't my intention to mislead you - what's the point of that? I don't know you or the guests that have booked,you would have been paying exactly the same as them so I have nothing to gain from taking their booking as opposed to yours. The house is only self cateriing in the winter and if you read my B&B reviews there is no mention of 'letting people down' after booking.

Response from the owner Hello there :) I know it takes time to write a detailed review, so I really appreciate that you have and we do hope that we see you again. It helps us too to know what stood out for you as something special and it helps those that have not yet stayed with us, review what others like you have experienced. We do really try hard to make everyone stay as welcoming and as memorable as possible, so thank you for letting us know what really worked for you. Once again thank you and sorry it took me awhile to reply to your review, all these computer systems are different and I did not realise you have left a review! We hope to see you again, all the best Lavinia and my super team of ladies xx
