Valley View HQ is the perfect holiday destination for families or groups of friends. We are located just outside the village of Uplyme in the beautiful Devon countryside with Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast a walk/short drive away.
Valley View HQ provides luxury self-catering holiday accommodation of the highest standard.

Leys at Valley View HQ offers luxurious self-catering accommodation for up to 8 people: 4 bedrooms, 4 bath/shower rooms and light, airy open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas.
The Barn offers all modern comforts and provides an excellent base for exploring the beautiful Devon countryside, Lyme Regis and the stunning Jurassic coastline.
The Annexe is a Grade II listed conversion and is perfect for two, with a characterful beamed combined living/dining/bedroom area with wood-burning stove, and a separate kitchen and bathroom.
A patio area in front of the property, sheltered by a stunning Magnolia, is the perfect position in which to enjoy an alfresco meal and the peace and tranquillity of the garden.
The Pot Place
The Pot Place was originally set up by Frances Hillier, and is now run by Penny Ireland.
While you are staying at Leys or in the Annexe, or if you live locally, you might be interested to visit the pottery studio for a workshop session, suitable for any age and complete beginners.
A place to enjoy nature and be inspired to be creative.
A great place to spend New Year and ideal for four couples, who each want their own bathroom! Well equipped, and Jill was most helpful. Thank you from us all. Will recommend.

2 families, 5 kids, Thanksgiving. Fossils a plenty, wall-building, pottery, nature walks. So much fun. Will definitely be back. The house and hospitality were top notch. Sad to leave! Thanks for everything.
Masimore family, London
Thank you so, so much for a lovely break away from the craziness of the city. Everything was spotless. We walked, relaxed and switched off – this is truly possible up here!
Thanks, Jill, we’ll be back again.

We couldn’t have loved our stay at the Annexe more. The meticulous attention to detail in this place – from the teas to DVDs – made it feel like home. We loved exploring the property, searching for wildlife and sitting on top of the hill at night looking for shooting stars.
Pottery class is highly recommended and a great way to spend a rainy day. You’ve made the property absolutely beautiful. Thank you.
