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 low-level 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.

We had a very lovely and comfortable stay in The Old Stable. It had everything we need for a self-contained holiday. Check-in was easy with the lockbox. Parking was on the owner's driveway. The location was perfect as a base for visiting all of Dorset's highlights. About 45 min drive west to the fossil beaches near Lyme Regis, 45 min drive east to Read moreOld Harry Rocks, 30 min-ish to Portland, Durdle Door and Lulworth, and West Bay cliffs.

We had a very overdue break at the Old Stable and were certainly not disappointed. It is a snug and cosy place for two. It is well located for exploring both local and further afield parts of Dorset. There was a very thoughtful 'welcome pack' and Rachael and Nathan are clearly putting a lot of thought into making people feel welcome.

Ideally situated between Dorchester and Weymouth. A small cottage, well appointed. Near to the River Wey. Excellent bus service just outside the cottage. Although the Fish and Chip shop sign is outside the adjacent property, this has ceased to trade and is now a dog grooming business.

Cottage was cosy and comfortable and I really enjoyed my stay. The welcome pack was very good. Location was good, village shop almost next door and the bus stop right outside with very frequent buses to Weymouth and Dorchester. Local walks straight out of the door along The Wey, and to the lovely Wishing Well Tea and Water Gardens in Upwey. The onlRead morey downside was that there was nowhere sunny to sit outside as the little, pretty courtyard faces east and only gets the early morning sun. 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.
