Description

Originally part of a farmhouse, this ancient stone and cob cottage is shielded by trees as it sits back from the main road leading into Weymouth, offering a peaceful location to be enjoyed. Head out on foot to visit the local pubs and independent village shops or follow the main road taking you to Weymouth, located just 3.5 miles away. Weymouth is home to a whole host of incredible attractions; you could easily spend your days in the picturesque seaside town. From the cliffside ruins of Sandsfoot Castle to the stunning Greenhill Gardens and the tranquil nature preserve of RSPB Radipole Lake, the options are truly endless. After a day of exploration, retreat to one of the many eateries or welcoming pubs.

Step inside the stable door into a hallway offering space for coats and boots after a day of discovering the great outdoors. Make your way into the kitchen area, a traditional farmhouse space that is compact yet well equipped with all the amenities you’ll need throughout your seaside break. After you’ve cooked up a hearty meal, head to the homely open plan lounge and dining area to relax before firing up the wood burner and curling up on the sofa for an evening in front of the Smart TV. When the day is done, head up the open tread stairs to the eaves of the cottage where you will find a welcoming double bedroom and bathroom complete with bath and shower overhead, perfect for long hot soaks after a day along the coast. Please note, there is reduced head height under the eaves in the bedroom.

Outside, make your way down a few steps from the parking area to enjoy the sloping garden complete with pretty lawn and shrubs. Enjoy a spot of al fresco dining in the gravelled seating area or start your day with a morning coffee as you enjoy the peace and quiet of village life. There s an outbuilding which houses a freezer and washing machine, in addition to generous off road parking for one car.

Area Details

Preston

Preston is a small coastal village on the edge of Weymouth and close to Sutton Poyntz and Osmington. The village has 2 mini supermarkets, a fish and chip shop and its very own nature reserve. Preston has one Pub, The Spice Ship. The area is best known for Bowleaze Cove. This is a sand and shingle beach that is popular with families in the summer. In addition, the beach also has a slipway for launching small craft. There are many rock pools to explore at low tide and the area is popular for fishing. The cove also provides excellent views over Weymouth and is also home to the Riviera Hotel. Bowleaze Cove, painted by John Constable on his honeymoon, now hangs in the National Gallery. Overcombe Corner is a popular spot for windsurfers. This particular area gets some nice swells when the wind is in the right direction. For the children, Bowleaze has Weymouths biggest fun park Fantasy Island. The park has fun rides, amusements and soft play. In conclusion, this can often be a fantastic half or full day to amuse children or similarly, burn off their excess energy.
