Uplyme Village

The village of Uplyme has a petrol station/post office/small supermarket selling basic provisions along with local produce. Cash can be obtained from the post office.  The nearest cash machines are in Broad Street, Lyme Regis.

The medieval church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Pound Lane (01297 444499) is worth a visit.  Its bells can often be heard on Friday evenings and weekends.  Sunday services: 10am and 6pm.

Many local footpaths start from the village, and the Southwest Coastal Path is very nearby.  There is a good walk leading off from the Playing Field next to the Village Hall towards the disused Cannington Viaduct (which can be seen in the far distance from the field above Valley View HQ car park).

There’s also a network of footpaths and bridleways from Valley View HQ.  Turning left at the cattle grid, the walk uphill beyond the farm building will take you past fields of cows, sheep, goats and horses with wonderful views towards Lyme Regis and the sea.

If you turn right when the path meets the road, then left at the crossroads and bear left after 100 yards or so, you will shortly get to the A35; turn left here and the Hunters Lodge pub (Charmouth Road, Raymonds Hill, EX13 5SZ; tel: 01297 33286)  will loom up before you.  Hunters Lodge is a welcoming, child-friendly, family-run pub serving good food in comfortable surroundings.  Quiz nights are usually Monday and on Friday evenings there is free pool from 6pm.
