A characterful home-from-home, this property is just right for families or groups of friends looking to catch up on quality time and celebrate Dorset’s abundance of natural beauty.

Only 3.5 miles from Weymouth town centre, 1.5 miles from the beach at Bowleaze Cove and within striking distance of numerous countryside walks, this property offers the best of all worlds. Head into Weymouth town for a pick-up in pace. Dotted with shops, restaurants, cafes and more, you can head to the seafront for food with a view or souvenir-hunt along the little streets. For a classic summer holiday, pack a picnic and head to Weymouth Beach, popular amongst families for its shallow sea and soft sands.

A quaint end-terrace cottage, this charming bolthole retains an authentic sparkle with many original features. Step in through the lobby and leave your coats and boots behind. On the ground floor, the property has the added bonus of two lounge areas. The first is home to a sofa and armchair, as well as a Hi-Fi and gas fire. A great space for relaxing with your book, it is a warm, cosy space throughout the day. The second, larger lounge is connected to the kitchen/diner through a doorway. Equipped with two sofas and a chair, a TV and wood burner, the whole family can gather around for evenings together. Wandering into the kitchen, this homely space is well-presented with a classic Rayburn cooker tucked into a little nook framed by a wooden mantelpiece. Pumping heat out into the kitchen, you can cook something tasty for the gang whilst enjoying the atmosphere. Also in the kitchen is an ice-box fridge, a microwave, a dishwasher, a kettle and a toaster, and a large dining table. On the opposite side of the kitchen to the lounge entrance, there is another door that leads to the garden as well as a downstairs WC with a washing machine. Upstairs, the bedrooms comprise two twins and a king. There is also a family bathroom upstairs with a shower cubicle, a bath with an overhead shower, a WC and a heated towel rail.

To the front and side, gravel paths wrap themselves around the property walls, hugged by plants and flowers. There is also a shared rear path that takes you to a secluded stone terrace, home to a BBQ and lawn area. The cottage benefits from parking for two cars.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
