Don’t just take our word for it. Read some of the comments our guests have made about Fingle Bed and Breakfast.

Absolutely lovely, wonderful breakfast, great stay. We will be back. J and D from Conway November

So enjoyed our stay with such hospitality. We would have loved to have stayed much longer. A and D from Spain September.

We have had a lovely few days here in Lyme Regis.  Jane and James made us so welcome and relaxed.  We are going home with tales of ‘the fish and crabs that got away’, happy memories of family time with our son and his fiancee.  Here at the time of The Fireball Championships, we have not only enjoyed watching the boats come and go, but fabulous street food too.  If you ever get the chance we recommend Persian street food.  (I wish I could reproduced the picture that was drawn with this comment, it is of the boats sailing in the harbour.)  21 and 22 August, M & T, Hampshire  Ammonite and Belemnite Room

We have just spent another 7 nights at Fingle.  Absolutely everything is top notch.  Thank you Jane and James for your wonderful hospitality as always,  9 August, C & G, Cumbria  Ammonite Room

Home from home.  Thank you for a lovely stay, very welcoming, amazing flapjacks and breakfast fabulous.  We will definitely recommend.  28 and 29 July, N & A, Coventry    Ammonite Room

Our 6th stay at Fingle.  Love everything – warm welcome, friendly, comfortable bedroom, amazing breakfasts, great hosts.  Always recommend.  24-29 July, C & R, Witney  Ammonite Room

Once again we have had a great 5 days staying at Fingle.  Each year we try new restaurants and this year we visited the Rock Point in Lyme Regis.  Extensive menu plus a specials board, good value, pleasant surroundings and clean.  Food was excellent.  James and Jane are ‘second to none’ so we include them on our ‘specials list’.  24 June -30 June. J and D, Kent Ammonite Room

What can we add to previous comments?  The only comment is we feel part of the family having been back time after time.  Thank you.  J & D as above

We love coming to stay at Fingle.  Super room, lovely and clean.  Plus fantastic breakfasts.  Hope to see you again next year for the Axe Vale Festival. 16 and 17 June, P and J  Ammonite Room

Thank you again Jane and and James we have had a wonderful stay.  Love the breakfast and the apricots were scrummy.  The ‘new boy’ who waited on us at breakfast was very attentive.  We think you should keep him on!!  We ate at The Taste of India, Silver Street, Lyme Regis and the food was excellent.  Must remember to take own wine.  We have been to Beer which is always a joy.  We visited Burrow Farm Gardens near Axminster, well worth a visit, so much to see.  We went to Strinsford to see Thomas Hardy’s grave, the church is lovely. We also visited Thomas Hardy’s cottage the garden was at its best lots of flowers.  Fingle garden is beautiful and full of different things.  Thank you for sharing.  Our friends had a wonderful time too.  A & A, Lichfield  12, 13, 14 June 2017  Ammonite Room

An excellent stay again.  Jane and James made us feel so welcome.  Breakfasts are to die for.  We ate at the Taste of India in Lyme Regis on Silver Street, excellent food.  We will be back again.  Thank you so much.  R & G, Lichfield 12, 13, and 14 June 2017  Belemnite Room

Clean and very comfy room, lovely breakfasts, nothing was too much trouble for Jane and James.  We hope to see you again soon.  Thank you for your great hospitality.  B & S,  Tavistock 3 and 4 June 2017 Ammonite Room

Another great stay with James and Jane.  Excellent meal at Masons Arms, Branscombe, great welcome from the staff, fabulous scallops and cheeseboard. Pilot Boat Inn, Lyme Regis, very good fish and chips, unpretentious, booking advisable.  Tytherleigh Arms a cab ride away but well worth it, skate fabulous.  Off to get pasties from the bakery in Lyme to take home.  J & M, London, 26, 27, 28 May 2017 Ammonite Room

Really enjoyed our stay with Jane and James, they really are a great couple, so friendly and welcoming. We had two meals out in Lyme Regis.  We ate at By the Bay on Marine Parade.  The service was great and the food too was excellent. Our second meal was at the local pub, The Talbot Arms, 5 minutes walk away.  Again the food was lovely, all home cooked and piping hot.  Highly recommended.  You do need to check though as evening meals are not available every evening.  We will certainly return to this b and b at the earliest opportunity.  A & T,  Northampton 16, 17, 18 May 2017 Ammonite Room

Yet another wonderful stay with Jane and James – this time for four nights.  I had two lovely meals at the Royal Standard – fabulous fish soup one night, scallops another and lemon possett to die for on both nights.  A lovely lunch at The Old Black Dog – delicious brie and bacon roll served with salad and an extra cheese scone.  All home made and great value for money.  Mind you by far the best place for food is the breakfast provided by Jane and James – scrumptious.  Thank you for another perfect stay.  J, Fareham.  12 – 16 March 2017, Ammonite Room

We have just had a fabulous three night stay and cannot recommend highly enough.  Knew we were onto a winner with a welcoming tray of tea and homemade flap jacks.  We have eaten and walked and eaten and walked …… lovely.

Talbot Arms: nice homemade pub food and only a five minute walk away.

Millside Restaurant: all food freshly made and very tasty.

Cornish Bakery: fantastic pastries!  Perfect with a coffee.

The Royal Standard: great quality and huge portions.

But try Jane’s homemade preserves, the rhubarb and vanilla is fabulous but pales into insignificance compared to the lemon curd and I dont even like lemon curd!! A and J, Chelmsford, 5-8 March 2017, Ammonite Room


  • Fabulous stay as ever.  Jane and James even  fixed the weather, 5 days of sunshine.  Food at The Talbot Arms was delicious, fish pie almost as good as mum’s.  The Royal Standard also does a fabulous fish soup – could stand the spoon up in it.  Great breakfasts as ever, comfy bed – perfect hosts, see you again soon.  J, Fareham.  18-23 October 2016.  The Ammonite Room

  • This one is taken from Tripadvisor as it is in German. We stayed 3 nights at Jane and James and so excited that we nicht wanted to leave. The house is beautifully decorated and incredibly clean. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms also. The beds are heavenly. It is very quiet there and we slept well. But above all points Jane and her husband through an unobtrusive cordiality which occupies a total. Jane is also a fantastic cook, great breakfast with homemade jams, fresh fruit, stewed fruit, and everything your heart desires. Many of the guests are visitors to River Cottage also. In addition Jane sews yet charming bags and aprons. Incredible. James a former geology teacher is the perfect consultant for walks along the Jurassic Coast. And he afterwards evaluated our fossils. All in all the perfect b and b! E, V and J from Hamburg 27-29 May 2014
