If you’re moving into Lyme Regis from elsewhere we would recommend using a Dorset firm like Northover and Gilbert to come and collect your items as we know the area very well, including how to navigate the narrow, winding roads of Axminster or Uplyme – plus the best shortcuts on busy days during tourist season.

Planning your move to Lyme Regis

If you’re still at the planning stages and haven’t bought a property yet you can still get in touch for a quick quote or a detailed estimate to help you set your budget for your move.

If you’re still not sure if Lyme Regis is the place for you, it is worth bearing in mind what appealed to you when you visited the area and whether you can cope with the fluctuations in population at different times of year. The town is very different at the height of the tourist season, compared to during the winter months and you need to bear this in mind when making your decision. It’s also worth knowing what else is in the area when you need practical things like supermarkets and schools.

The county town of Dorchester is situated some 25 miles East of the historic seaside town – and if you think you might prefer to be close to Lyme Regis rather than right in it – then this could be a better destination for you.
