A warm welcome awaits you at The Old Black Dog Bed and Breakfast on the Devon/Dorset border. You can take a short stroll of about three quarters of a mile into Lyme Regis, one of the towns along the 95 miles of Jurassic World Heritage Coastline (designated 2001), where dinosaurs once roamed. Lyme Regis was the home of Mary Anning well known for her discoveries of a fossilised Ichthyosaur and the first Plesiosaur.  Lyme Regis has been the location for several films - The French Lieutenant's Woman, Persuasion, and most recently Ammonite, starring Kate Winslet and Saroise Ronan.


The Old Black Dog overlooks the Lym valley offering walking opportunities to guests, including links to designated country and coastal footpaths, including the South West Coastal  Path, accessed at the beginning of the Undercliff below Holmbush Car Park in Lyme Regis.


Evening meals are available in the wide range of restaurants to be found in Lyme Regis and Uplyme's local public house.


The Black Dog Tearoom, owned by Rod and Sonia, is on site and offers a wide range of snacks, light lunches, teas and coffees, including cream teas during the summer months (or by arrangement at other times of the year).  Booking is recommended.

Dogs are welcome both in the B&B (no more than 2 dogs) and the Black Dog Tearoom.  We have two resident dogs, Jorge (Black Labrador) and Martha (Black & White English Springer Spaniel).
