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.

Less than a quarter of a mile from a tea room and the village pub, you are well served by places to visit for a taste of local food and drink. Pop out for some brunch before visiting the local carving of George III on horseback etched into a chalk hillside nearby. If you are after scenic routes and wildlife spotting, the surrounding area is home to RSPB Lodmoor and several beaches. On summer days, Weymouth Beach is a particularly popular spot amongst families for its gently sloping shore and soft sands. Lay back on a towel and let the sunshine wash over you.

Open up the front door and let your holiday begin. With the property split across two floors, the ground floor is home to the living areas. The cute and cosy lounge will be a fast-favourite amongst all the family, complete with two sofas, a TV and a wood burner. Leaf through one of the books provided as the fire crackles away or choose a film for everyone to watch. Across the hallway, an open-plan lounge/diner offers a homely space for meals at home. Switch on the Hi-Fi or turn on the kitchen’s TV for the news. With a sofa, a dining table and a breakfast bar, there is plenty of space for everyone to take turns helping out and relaxing. For meals throughout the day, the kitchen is equipped with an oven, an electric hob, a fridge, a microwave, a kettle and a toaster. There is also a dishwasher and a tumble dryer provided, as well as a downstairs bathroom with a walk-in shower. Up the steep, cottage-style stairs, you’ll discover three bedrooms. The first is an attractive double with a sleigh bed and a feature wall, the second is another light and bright double and the third is an inviting twin. So that everyone has enough space to get ready in the morning, the upstairs has another bathroom, this time featuring a bath with an overhead shower.

Outside, a high-walled, gravelled courtyard garden with seating and a BBQ beckons for sunny afternoons. On street parking is available directly outside the cottage (subject to availability).

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.

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.
