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.

Enjoy the convenience of a well-appointed village whilst making the most of a convenient location, perfect for exploring the coastline and countryside alike. Take a stroll into the heart of the village to find a shop, pub and a couple of eateries offering respite after a day in the great outdoors. Beyond the village, Weymouth lies just 3.5 miles away, where you can explore the sandy beach, independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Furthermore, you can visit the oceanic exhibit that is the Jurassic Skyline, the Victorian Nothe Fort and the ancient ruins of the cliffside Sandsfoot Castle, just to name a few attractions. 10 miles away is the picturesque Isle of Portland with its traditional lighthouse and stunning 16th-century castle.

Set back from the village high street and located adjacent to the owner's property, this delightful property offers a wealth of character and equine memorabilia. Step through the traditional stable door to find a double height lounge with vaulted beamed ceiling and dining area boasting many of its original qualities to create a homely space. Fire up the traditional wood burner as you sink into the comfortable sofa of an evening and truly unwind. A feature stone wall, hayloft window and flagstone floor add to the ambience of this space. The compact but well-equipped galley kitchen complete with Belfast sink, induction hob and oak worktops, sits behind the stable divider, so you can rustle up some homecooked food before enjoying it in the cosy dining area which is nestled in the corner of the living space. When the day is done, retreat upstairs to the mezzanine balcony bedroom complete with low-level double bed, beamed 'A' frame in the vaulted ceiling, oak floor and balustrade overlooking the ground floor. The bathroom, home to a shower and WC is located on the ground floor.

To the front of the cottage, you can make the most of an unenclosed shale and cobbled seating area offering shade throughout the warmer months. Whether you’re starting your day with a morning coffee as you soak up the atmosphere or ending the evening with a spot of al fresco dining, it a wonderful space to enjoy. The cottage offers off-road parking for one car.

The cottage was lovely - really nicely furnished with everything we needed. It was wonderfully cosy to come back to after a day of walking and is ideally located for the Jurassic Coast. It is small, but ideal for a couple.

The old stable was a lovely cottage, very cosy and welcoming. The owner came to check all was ok once we had settled in which was welcomed. Louise also passed on some useful local information. The cottage was well furnished and had all that you needed. Overall, would definitely recommend to others.

Conveniently located and nice and modern. A sunny sitting out area would be a nice addition. The first floor could be better organised perhaps. There was so little room that we had to keep our cases in the car. Not enough hangers.

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.
