Old Black Dog is situated on the Devon/Dorset border about three
quarters of a mile from the sea at Lyme Regis. It is on the main
road into Lyme Regis at the front and overlooks the Lym valley at the
back. It has a large car park beside the building. It is surrounded
by fields and footpaths that lead into the Uplyme countryside,
further into Devon, Somerset and West Dorset including the beaches
and sea at Lyme Regis. Lyme Regis is famous for Mary Anning
(1799-1847), a fossil collector, most well known for discovering the
first Ichthyosaur to come to scientific interest in 1814 and the
first Plesiosaur in 1825.
Old Black Dog Bed and Breakfast has four rooms offering accommodation
and a full English breakfast in its comfortable dining room.
