    Owner, on request, provided mat which was then safer for wife to use. Gas fire problematic. Owner, on request, provided instructions and Susy visited and she and my wife developed expertise to work it. No light in little fridge or over magnificent gas hob. Bottle of milk a welcome and some nice china and utensils but but a bit short on domestic items, eg soap, kitchen paper, fly whisk. Central heating did not come on but Susy brought over an electric blow heater. No instructions for microwave. Susy very responsive and concerned over over cries of distress and did what she could. Particular thanks to her for lending me a walking stick. Poppet our poodle enjoyed her treats and dog friendly reception.

About the location


Dorchester 4.5 miles; Weymouth 4 miles.

The picturesque village of Upwey lies just four miles north of Weymouth, nestling beneath the Dorset Ridgeway, and takes its name from the shallow chalk stream, the River Wey, which bubbles up here from an underground spring. Upwey is well-known for its Wishing Well, where George III once sought the benefits of the natural spring water. It is now a delightful tea room, serving lunches and traditional cream teas. There are a number of footpaths leading directly from the village to miles of unspoilt countryside, and close by is the market town of Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s ’Casterbridge’. An easy drive or bus ride takes you to the popular seaside resort of Weymouth offering visitors glorious golden sandy beaches, excellent watersports facilities and a bustling harbour. An attractive village location and an ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Note: No children under the age of 6.
