Property code: DC180

Lovingly converted Grade II listed former stables in the charming village of Upwey, perfectly situated to explore Weymouth and beyond along the stunning Jurassic Coastline.

A bijou bolthole, this property cleverly harnesses its original features to create stylish, authentic spaces. Sleeping two people, you can look forward to a solo getaway or romantic retreat for two surrounded by Dorset beauty. For added convenience, the local shop is only 50 yards away and pub is 500 yards, so when you can tear yourself away from this beautiful abode, local treats are never far.

A Grade II-listed former-stables, this self-catering cottage has been lovingly and skilfully designed. Making the most of every inch of space and incorporating lots of attractive features, function is infused with luxury for the ultimate combination. Stepping inside, you will immediately appreciate the handsome flagstone floor, high ceilings and period aspects. In an open-plan layout, the lounge/kitchen/diner are arranged over the ground floor. Nestle into the comfortable sofa and loosen up as the wood burner chugs out heat in winter. With a TV positioned on the wall, you can catch up on the morning news as you brew a cup of tea or watch a film in the evening. Attractively partitioned, the kitchen houses everything you could need for culinary creativity, including oven and hob and lots of utensils. Also, on the ground floor is a fabulous bathroom with large shower and heated towel rail. Up the stairs, a mezzanine is home to a double bed and balustrade overlooking the ground floor. Outside, you can relax in the unenclosed shale and cobble seating area with a book or alfresco meal.

Only 3.5 miles from Weymouth, a wealth of shops and eateries await, as well as stunning coastline. For a breath of sea air, stroll along Weymouth Beach or head to neighbouring Chesil. A must visit, Nothe Fort is 4.5 miles away, an award-winning attraction offering local history and spectacular views.
