Welcome to the Tytherleigh Arms

A family run inn and restaurant in the glorious westcountry

Situated on the idyllic Devon/Dorset/Somerset border, the historic Tytherleigh Arms offers a perfect rural getaway with all the modern comforts you’d expect. A former coaching inn dating back to the 16th century, the Tytherleigh already has a fantastic reputation with locals and visitors alike. A seasonal menu featuring the best fresh local produce guarantees a fantastic taste of the west whatever time of year you choose to visit.

Despite its excellent transport links, with central London only a train ride away from nearby Axminster, the Tytherleigh feels a world apart from the stresses of modern life. The iconic Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is just a twenty minute drive away
and the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural beauty offers a multitude of scenic walks.

The Tytherleigh makes a great place to base your visit to Axminster, Lyme Regis, Seaton, Charmouth and the surrounding areas.


We warmly welcome families to join us for our lunchtime service, with highchairs available for little ones. We don’t allow under fives in the evening, or in the bedrooms, although well behaved older children are welcome (we kindly request they stay with you at your table to help maintain an enjoyable dining experience for everyone).


Your canine companions are free to join you in our bar area, although not in the dining room or accommodation. If you are booking a table, please be sure to notify us of any dogs accompanying you so that we can reserve you a suitable table.


The Tytherleigh Arms is situated on the A358 between Chard and Axminster only twenty minutes away from the regency town of Lyme Regis and the world famous Jurassic Coast.

Axminster train station, with direct links to London Waterloo and Exeter St Davids, is a short ten minute drive away.

We strongly recommend booking your taxis in advance on any given day/night.
