    “Lovely spot.”

    Peaceful and pretty village with good walking routes from the cottage. The Wishing Well Tearooms (just up the lane) had gorgeous gardens to sit in and they serve a lovely brunch and have an amazing selection of cakes. ...

    Peaceful and pretty village with good walking routes from the cottage. The Wishing Well Tearooms (just up the lane) had gorgeous gardens to sit in and they serve a lovely brunch and have an amazing selection of cakes. Great location for getting to the coast and to Weymouth. The cottage provided all that we needed. A bunch of fresh flowers and biscuits on arrival with provisions of tea and coffee in the kitchen were nice touches and appreciated. We had troubles with the heating (it was on a timer that we were unable change), and the heating wouldn't come on in the morning when adjusting the thermostat. Had to wait until going out for a walk and getting a signal on the phone (no phone signal at the cottage) to call Sykes Cottages and have an engineer come out to fix the problem. We were then able to turn the heating on when we wanted to, first thing in the morning. No instructions or bin for recycling rubbish- so we ended up bringing some of our recycling home with us but felt bad about putting other recyclable rubbish into the general waste.

About the location


Dorchester 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.
Note: The garage is not for guests' use.
