Continue up to the second floor to reach the main living area.

The kitchen is well-equipped with sleek fixtures and appliances, making it simple to prepare meals at home.

Before filling the dishwasher and going to the living room to catch up on TV, pop open a bottle of bubbly and prepare the table for a feast.

A homely sitting area for people watching is provided by the town's large bay windows.

The last two bedrooms, a king-size with an en-suite shower and a twin, are located on the top level.

They are both neutrally decorated with classic fixtures and furnishings to maintain the historic atmosphere of the structure.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
