Follis Cottage is converted stable situated in a quiet pretty area of Nottington, locally well known for its Spa House - a hexagonal shaped property which can be seen from the grounds. A cascading mill stream fronts many of the attractive stone and granite cottages which are part of the charm of the village. Folk Lore relates to the tale of when the local inhabitants of Nottington were asked many moons ago if they would allow a village pub to be built - it was flatly refused! A handy supermarket lies only a five minute car journey away, a closer petrol station within walking distance provides the morning papers etc. The historic county town of Dorchester is only five miles away and the beach at Weymouth with its golden sands only two miles. The owners live within the grounds and are more than happy to offer advice and local knowledge when asked whilst respecting customer's privacy.

Accommodation: Lounge/Diner/kitchen. Bedroom 1: Double bed. Bedroom 2: Twin single beds. Bathroom, bath with shower over, toilet and hand basin.

Services in addition to standard equipment: Wifi. Electric heating, washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer, fridge/freezer. Flat screen TV. Cot and highchair. Off road parking. Bed linen inclusive. The owner of this property does have a ramp if required for wheelchair access.

This is a wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting. We absolutely loved it. Stayed August 2016

Mr A Mortlock
The cottage is absolutely lovely, the pictures do not do it justice. The owners are on site and very much feel like those friendly neighbours we all wish we had. We were given 'the run of the mill' on the grounds and made to feel literally like family. The cottage itself had everything expected and more to cater for our stay. On our 5th year visiting Weymouth, this is by FAR the most cosy accommodation we have had. We will definitely return! Stayed August 2016

Mrs R Baker
A great place - so peaceful yet really quick and easy to get into Weymouth. We enjoyed having the field to play in and the property was very well-equipped and extremely clean. Very good value for money. The owners living next door were polite and friendly but didn't trouble us - stayed July 2016

Mr N Mcgrath
The cottage is in a great location, being on the outskirts of Weymouth yet has the feel of being in the middle of the countryside. The property was very clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. I would certainly recommend it to anyone considering a holiday in the Weymouth area. Stayed July 2016

About the Location

Weymouth sits perfectly on the stunningly beautiful Jurassic coastline. Located on the Southern tip of Dorset, this traditional seaside town is one of the most visited and popular areas on the south coast.

With a beautiful, blue flag, sandy beach, sitting against the back drop of an elegant Georgian esplanade, this seaside wonder is a firm favourite for families. As indeed it once was for King George III, who famously used to holiday here.

For a perfectly nostalgic English seaside holiday, you can ask for no more. A golden, sandy beach, named one of the best in Britain, shallow waters which are perfect for paddling, Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, carousels on the promenade, all accompanied by traditional chippies and quaint tea rooms.

Head down to Weymouth’s Old Harbour, a fine Georgian harbour and one of the prettiest in Europe. Simply soak up the bustling atmosphere of harbour life; sit on the harbour wall with some fish and chips and watch the large catamarans, traditional fishing boats and luxury yachts. Or why not enjoy an adrenaline fuelled ride around the bay with the Weymouth Bay Rib Charters. How about a nice family fishing trip? Many of the fishing boats at the harbour offer fishing trips for absolute beginners and accomplished anglers. Weymouth is fantastic for fishing with plenty of wrecks and reefs to explore.

Try a Jurassic Safari where you can sample Dorset’s secret beauty, off the beaten track. You will be taken along unspoilt country lanes, ancient byways and deep river crossings, whilst catching sight of beautiful wildlife.

Fossil hunting on Chesil beach is a joy with the children. They can run up and down the steep shingle climb, whilst you picnic on the beach.

Sandworld is definitely worth a visit; the sand art won’t fail to impress and there is a fantastic sandpit for the children to play in.

Visit the magnificent Nothe Fort and explore the tunnels and passageways that were once filled with soldiers and canons. See where all the gun powder was stored and walk up to the top level where the canons were fired at the approaching enemy.

If a leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens is more your thing, why not try the award winning Greenhill Gardens, which sit right on the seafront. Bennetts Water Gardens is also a lovely choice, replete with a vast array of water lilies and a Claude Monet style Japanese bridge. A very romantic setting for a picnic!

For a fun packed day out with the kids, head to the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower, an underground sea world with attractions, rides and over 1,000 incredible creatures. Venture up in a viewing capsule on the The Jurassic Skyline for an incredible panoramic view across the Jurassic Coastline and Dorset countryside.

Children will love Fantasy Island. There are lots of rides, many traditional ones ideal for younger children, tea pots and flying elephants to name but a few! Penny arcades, slot machines and a fab coffee bar.

Weymouth is a fantastic town with plenty to do for everyone!
