    “This is a beautifully decorated little gem of a house.”

    It was spotless too which was much appreciated. It would best suit guests who are visiting by public transport. It is on a main bus route, and the local train station ( Upwey) is nearby. Although the listing states “ roadside parking” , the main road is predominately double yellow lines and the suggested “surrounding streets” are packed with cars. Finding somewhere to park each day was stressful and, for this reason only, we would not return.

    Thank you for your feedback which is much appreciated. Parking does vary and although most guests have been able to park opposite the house or in the street around the corner, there are times when this has been tricky. We are always happy to help out and have made our drive available if guests have struggled before and have made us aware. If you do decide to return, the drive is yours! Property Owner

The property

Tucked away down a quaint passageway on the edge of the seaside town of Weymouth is this heart-warming, self-contained annexe, The Kiln House.

Formerly a working pottery, this romantic hideaway for two is perfectly placed for accessing the delights of Weymouth or Dorchester whilst enjoying all the benefits of a quiet rural location.

After a day spent walking the surrounding lanes and meadows, kick off your boots and head to the open-plan living space, where you can relax in an armchair and ponder the holiday thus far distracted a little no doubt by a selection of beautiful ceramics made on site or perhaps the idyllic view through french windows that open onto a secluded patio.

Clear the dining table and plan an agenda for the rest of the holiday, or step over to the kitchen and rustle up a hearty feast.

The bedroom features a double bed and comes with ample storage space for your personal items.

Step out to the patio and enjoy a drink from the bistro table and chairs beneath a spreading beech, undisturbed but for an occasional squirrel or the sound of a woodpecker at work in the nearby walnut tree.

Just up the road lies a friendly convenience store where you can pick up any essentials, or head to one of the local pubs, The Royal Standard or The Old Ship for delicious comfort food and ale.

Weymouth town itself comes lined with a wealth of fine spots to eat, drink, and shop the days away.

The sea front is just a short bus ride away, as is the county town of Dorchester, both destinations being accessible from nearby bus stops or Upwey train station.

If you’ve arrived at the Kiln House via bus or train and want to access some of the area’s more remote locations, fear not since Dorset Vehicle Rentals are also a short walk away where you can hire a car for a day or two.

If you feel like taking things a little more slowly you can walk to the seafront via local footpaths that follow the course of the River Wey and the peaceful reed beds of Radipole Lake (keeping a sharp eye open for herons, egrets and cormorants along the way) and then past the Swannery and memorial gardens before reaching the award-winning Weymouth Beach where you can lounge on the golden sands or in a traditional seaside deck chair.

Enjoy a romantic retreat at The Kiln House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

A short drive takes you to Portland Harbour, and the rugged “Isle” of Portland, linked to Weymouth by the dramatic Chesil Beach. Visit Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s “Casterbridge”, only 7 miles away, or take a journey along the scenic coastal road and call in at Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens. Alternatively, just head down to West Bay - the views of the stunning Dorset Heritage Coastline are not to be missed!
