A town-centre three-bedroom house, minutes walk from Weymouth’s sandy beach.

Our Victorian house probably fits into the category of “charming” rather than “luxury”. Although we do have a roll-top bath, wood-burning stove and sky tv!

The house is situated on a pedestrianised street. We provide a local parking permit, but are also very close to Weymouth train station.

Further details indoors

We have two twin rooms and one double. There's a large bathroom, with the previously mentioned roll-top bath as well as a shower. Downstairs is a comfortable living room with an adjoining dinning room, opening onto a courtyard garden. The gallery kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, pot, pans, gas-hob, kettle, toasty-maker, etc. t.

Please note, as it's an old house, the stairs up to the second floor (where the two single bedrooms are) are narrow and winding. For most this shouldn't be a problem (we seem to manage it, even after a few drinks) but please enquire f you have any worries about accessibility.

Further details outdoors

We have a small courtyard garden — a nice little sun trap , with a BBQ and outdoor seating.

The West Country region

Dorset is a sunny place to visit. We seem to have quite a bit of sun. There are lots of historic places to visit in Dorset, like Corfe Castle, Maiden Castle, and a Bronze aged hill fort. Most of Dorset's coastline has Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status and the Jurassic coast starts at the East end of Dorset. Weymouth makes a good base to visit the whole stretch of the Jurassic coast with a Jurassic bus running a long the whole length of the coast daily going both ways. There is also plenty for the children, from time on our beaches to Monkey world, Sealife Centre and the Tank museum.


Weymouth is the home of the Sailing Olympics this summer. There are plenty of activities as part of the cultural Olympics as well as the Sailing itself. There are also many festivals taking place through out the year. We have a great beach for families, two minutes walk from the house. The Sea Life Centre is a walk away or you can catch the land train. Weymouth has many great restaurants and a fun night life.

"not as the pictures show"

A very quirky house. Sadly, not very clean and there was rubbish left in a few rooms. We had a leak from the boiler in the kitchen. The downstairs toilet took ages and a real technique to flush. The o… More

HI, I'm sorry that the place was not up to your expectations. If you had had problems you should have rang! I also tried to pack up all my stuff but I thought it would be nice for a few home comforts around for you to use. I do leave a message to people about the downstairs loo and do not advertise that it has two toilets in the place for that very reason.
Sorry again

"A little Gem!"

Stayed 31 July 2013 for 3nights - the house is exactly what the description says. We found that it was a five mins walk to the seafront, marina, shops, café and all the local stores you could want are on hand. If you want to go further for a day trip then there is plenty to do and the owner has left many booklets to hand. The house had lots of room for the six of us, including 3 teenagers 13-17 year olds. Great little courtyard at the back and I have say we used many times, its home from home feel was fabulous. The rooms, bedding, everywhere was clean and tidy.
A little gem!
We all said we would stay again and hope to book next year.

"Perfect location, perfect house, perfect holiday!"

The pre-stay pack we received was excellent, and meant we could easily locate the property. On arrival we were greeted with a loaf of freshly baked bread, jam and cakes which was a lovely surprise.

The house is ideally located just 5 mins walk from beach. It's a similar distance from the town and the harbour so everything really is right on your doorstop. The house itself was beautifully furnished to a high standard and the rooms were bright and spacious. Everything was extremely clean and well kept.

I would defiantly rent this wonderful house again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my friends and family.
