This inviting property occupies an idyllic setting within the pretty suburb of Upwey. A wonderful choice for walkers and those seeking a restful break, whilst being close to many popular attractions.

Upwey is 4 miles north of the vibrant town centre of Weymouth where you can take a stroll around the historic old harbour, visit Nothe Forte or enjoy the sandy beach. There is also a wide selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Those wishing to get active will find plenty to do here as the town is backed by rolling hills, with many walking routes to explore, including the South West Coast Path. Within 10 miles of the cottage there are many popular attractions such as the lighthouse at Portland Bill, Bowleaze Cove and Chesil Beach, the county town of Dorchester and picturesque village of Abbotsbury, which is home to a swannery and sub-tropical gardens.

From the roadside, a shared drive gives access to the private entrance into this detached cottage. Once inside, there is a step up into the charming country-style kitchen, which has an electric range-style oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is space for two to casually dine here. Just next door is the inviting open-plan lounge/diner. This lovely room has an open fire, TV and plenty of comfortable seating, plus a table for leisurely family meals. Winding stairs lead from here to the first floor. There are three bedrooms to chose from, a single and a double to the front of the cottage and a pretty king-size bedroom to the rear with en-suite WC and views over pastureland. There is a contemporary bathroom with shower over bath and WC. Due to the setting within the eaves there are changes of level and areas of restricted head height throughout the first floor, which only adds to its character and charm.

A door opens from the kitchen to a narrow path with a pretty chalk stream running alongside it, which gives access to the courtyard garden. There is a patio area with furniture and from here you can enjoy countryside views and the sounds of the stream. The water is shallow, but due to the uneven surfaces and proximity to the path, care should be taken. To the front of the property is ample roadside parking (subject to availability).

  • 3 bedrooms – 1 king-size, 1 double and 1 single
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC and 1 en-suite WC
  • Range-style electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher

Cottage was full of character and clean but cold during evening and night. No comfortable garden furniture or privacy, only one garden sofa to cater for a house that accommodates 5 people. If you want television, limited channels, it didn't bother us as we are not into watching tv on holiday.

Great cottage, one of the best we have stayed in. The photos do not do it justice!! A small, well restored cottage, yet deceptively roomy inside. Contained everything we needed and more. There was always parking available. A short 12 minute drive to museums in Dorchester, and similar to the harbour in Weymouth. Lots to see and do within a 30 minuteRead more drive, recommend Portland Bill and the Tout Quarry Sculpture Park and Nature Reserve (free). Definitely hope to be back soon. Hide

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
