Lyme Regis is an historic coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.

Nearby Axminster offers further shopping opportunities and restaurants (including the River Cottage Canteen), Flamingo swimming pool and a main line railway station with a regular service to Waterloo (3 hours).

Local schools include Mrs. Ethelston's Church of England Primary School at Uplyme, Woodroffe Secondary School at Lyme Regis and Colyton Grammar School.

From Lyme Regis proceed to Uplyme and turn left just past Glebelands (on the right) into Venlake Lane. At the crossroads proceed straight over (also Venlake) and then at the fork in the road bear right (Wadley Hill). The lane then continues up the hill (Woodhouse Hill) and Foxgloves will be found on the right hand side.
