This former village bakery is an idyllic retreat only 4.5 miles from Weymouth town centre, boasting direct access to fabulous coastal and countryside walking opportunities.

This former village bakery has been lovingly turned into a beautiful property close to some of the best coastal and inland walks that Dorset’s Jurassic Coast has to offer. With enough space for six, plus a dog, this property is perfect for a family or group of friends looking to ditch the car; the local pub and farm shop with tea rooms are within 200 metres of the property and the coast is less than 1 mile on foot.

Entering under the flowered arbour over the front door, you’ll discover characterful accommodation with modern touches. The pretty sitting room has a feature window seat and a wonderful stone fireplace housing the wood burner. The kitchen has a cheerful feel and even has a sofa and TV, ideal for social cooking time before you all gather around the farmhouse dining table. One of the property’s two bathrooms is also downstairs. The first floor is reached up steep narrow tread stairs and is where the three bedrooms can be found: two doubles (one with a sleigh bed) and a twin room. A second bathroom ensures there’s no need to queue in the morning. Outside, a gravelled courtyard garden with a BBQ is perfect for a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. On street parking is available outside the property.

Weymouth is 5 miles west and has a host of different activities for the whole family, plus a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Don’t miss the Nothe Fort; a Victorian fort housing memorabilia from World War II. Heading east, the dramatic limestone arch Durdle Door is 9.5 miles away by road, or 7.5 miles on the South West Coast Path – well-worth the effort for the stunning views.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A wonderful weekend break in this cosy, clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage. The surrounding walks were fantastic for us and our dog and we definitely hope to return. Thank you.

The cottage was beautiful and very well equiped. The only remark we have is that the matress on both the double beds werent very comfortable. The house was very clean.

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.

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.
