The Sanctuary Bookshop is eighteen years old this year, and to be found in central Lyme Regis. We opened our doors in August 1997 and this Website in January 2006 (scroll down and see below). We now have ten rooms of books on four floors, the complete range of Beryl Cook Cards & Prints (click here), artwork by Hundertwasser, Erte, local artist Brian Matravers, and Cat Art by Ollie Lett. We have a very good stock of quality paperback literature, in particular meters of Enid Blyton, Agatha Christie, Patrick O'Brian and P G Wodehouse. A reading room with comfortable armchairs, a cozy fire, a floor of books mostly £1 or less, and, if desired, some overnight accomodation for book lovers. Lyme Regis itself, (the Pearl of Dorset), lies at the very heart of a section of the UK's South West Jurassic Coast renowned for its fossil beds. World Heritage Site Status has recently been awarded, in view of the extraordinary geology, and its consequences in both shaping the landscape and its people. Artistic achievements rank high too....John Fowles' "The French Lieutenant's Woman" was filmed here, as well as Jane Austen's famous novel "Persuasion". So, please scroll down and explore our site and see what we have to offer, or visit us in person all year round. We guarantee a friendly welcome!

Books in the Bedroom

It's just a thought, but when you have explored our site, you might like to consider having a similar one of your own...? We did this thirty page site without any HTML knowledge, no web editing software, and with only a little help from the advice line at our friendly Web Host. To be frank, initially, we were quite sceptical, but they were opening page just like this can indeed take you only a couple of minutes to set up....(however, you will need your own domain name, but either we or they can help you with that). In our case, the complete site took us the best part of a week. This was due to the very considerable Booklist and Catalogue Art content that we needed to format and upload. What we particularly like now, is the ease with which anything can be added, modified or deleted. This is without specialist knowledge or expensive indeed just takes minutes and we update our site most days. It's simply tremendous value at £65. It's curious, as well as satisfying, that from absolute beginners in January 2006, our site now gets 300+ visitors a day, on average. In addition, we find we are helping people to get online and have their own web presence! If this all appeals to you, give us a call on 01297-445815 (or 00-44-1297-445815 International. Or, you can just email us at: freehelp at, and have a chat before you take the plunge. Alternatively, if you think this is for you, click on the link above and sign up for a free trial. You will see us, along with many other happy clients, on their Home Page (in the "blue" highlighted listings). Good Luck! Bob & Mariko Speer.
