The Hub is a great venue for residential stays for groups who want to be in the centre of Lyme Regis. This ‘hostel’ type accommodation has disabled access and the building comprises a downstairs kitchen and dining area with toilet and shower facilities, and an expansive hall upstairs which is used for activities or as a large ‘hostel’ open sleeping space. If you wanted to zone this space with tents or an events shelter there’s lots of space to do so. The costs for a group to stay at The Hub is £150 for a 24 hour period.
Guides and scouts have taken advantage of the town center location and have loved the idea of indoor camping!
“I was keen to find a venue to allow me to bring our Cub Pack down to Lyme Regis for some Fossil hunting but also needed a venue with easy access to the town centre and other Tourist attractions. The Hub ticked all the boxes. Not only was there loads of internal space for occupying the children in wet weather but we were only 100 yards from the Beach! We catered for our group of 45 adults and children in the kitchen with ease and did not need to drive anywhere for the whole weekend. We will definitely come back again and would recommend this as a superb venue for any other youth groups.”
….Thanks so much for letting us use the Hub for our walking weekend. We had a brilliant time. To be honest I think we were a bit unsure about how it would work out as some of us are getting past the stage of wanting to sleep on floors, even though in the past we have slept in many bunkbarns etc. However we brought inflatable mattresses and it was absolutely fine. Your description of it as indoor camping is just right, but of course it was also warmer, more exclusive, more secure, and far better equipped than any campsite.
For 12 of us there was just so much space and it could be used really flexibly (so we even had a separate snorers room!).
Whilst unfortunately there is no carparking or outdoor space on site this was made up for by the fact that we didn’t need the cars. We walked straight out of the door to get onto the SW Coast Path, Wessex Way, Monarchs Way, and East Devon Way. ….And after the walk we just took our cake and cups of tea out onto the square by the Theatre, overlooking the sea and bay.
The friendly pub and Fish and Chip shop really couldn’t have been much closer (welcome after a long undercliff walk). and the walk into the Hub along the lovely new cliff path from the Charmouth Road carpark was spectacular, especially with the good weather we had.
As one of our team said “where else could you get accommodation right in the centre of Lyme Regis so cheaply”.
I’m sure we’ll be coming back.
Thank you for all of your help in setting it up, we really felt at home…… Wycombe Walkers
“On Monday morning, we set off for Lyme Regis and our one-night residential. We arrived at the Hub and had lunch before walking to the Town Mill. Here, we met Phil and Irena (artists) and one of the millers – they made our visit really interesting and we even brought home freshly milled flour and a beautiful card. When we returned to the Hub, we laid out our roll mats and sleeping bags ready for the night.
Then we walked to the beach to eat our chips – we had to fight off the pesky seagulls although one of them did manage to pinch some of Kanye’s tea! It made us all giggle. After some play time on the beach, we returned to get ready for bed – some of us fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow and some of us took a little longer!
The next morning, after breakfast, we met Chris who was our fossil guide. We had an amazing day on the beach learning about the different types of fossils and then hunting for our own. All of the adults that went with us were really impressed with our use of school values when on our trip. We would love to go back again soon!”
