Finding Monmouth Beach Car Park
This car park is found by taking the turning down Cobb Road off the main A3052 road that runs through Lyme Regis. This turning is next to Holmbush Car Park and easily missed.
As you enter Lyme Regis from the west on the A3052 and start to descent the hill you will see a rather grand building that looks like a tower with a pitched roof. (Coram Tower) . The entrance to Holmbush Car Park may be seen on the right, and Cobb Road is just after it.
If you are coming from Uplyme then at the top of the High Street as you enter Lyme Regis turn sharp right where the shops start in earnest and then look for the car park on the left near the tower and thus the turning to Cobb Road just before it.
Coming in from the east pass through the traffic lights in the town centre and up the high street. At the fork bear left, so staying on the A3052, and the road down to the car park is on the left just before the tower and before the entrance to Holmbush Car Park.
It should be noted that towards the bottom of Cobb Road on the right is the very small and not always open Undercliffe (Private) Car Park.
