    “Lovely warm and comfortable house.”

    Kitchen has great appliances and has the required equipment to cook any dish. Really appreciated the treats left for us. Lovely conservatory but too cold to sit in at this time of year. Easy drive to Portland and 3km walk to Weymouth along a trail. Disappointed about no sea view.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay, it was lovely to meet you. We have taken note of the conservatory issue and will see if we can address this. I note you were disappointed not to have a sea view and we are sorry that you were disappointed but I would like to highlight that we do not advertise having a sea view in our property description. We do have a sea glimpse from the main bedroom but have chosen not to mention this in the information because even though we are moments from the beach and harbour area other properties restrict the view.

The property

Moments from Smallmouth beach, this elegant house is located on the outskirts of Weymouth between Portland Harbour and Chesil Beach.

Ideally positioned for the myriad of water sports and activities on offer in the immediate vicinity.

Chesil Retreat, a well-equipped two-storey house, invites families seeking to holiday in this well-known Dorset location, escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Wash off the sand in the garden after spending the day at the beach before relaxing in the luxurious living/dining room, turning on the TV, or retreating to the conservatory for a quiet book.

If you don’t fancy eating out at the local beach bar or seafood restaurant minutes from the house, your appointed chef can whip up their favourite recipe in the fully equipped kitchen.

Rear doors lead out from the conservatory to the enclosed back garden with decked area, table and chairs ideal for some ‘al fresco’ dining.

Choose between two tastefully decorated bedrooms as night falls; the master features a luxury king-size bed while the luxury twin beds are a terrific option for both adults and children.

You will be able to park your car and explore Weymouth and Portland on foot for the length of your stay because everything is so accessible.

Pick up some fish and chips and enjoy them while sitting on the harbour wall in Weymouth or visit the local café/bars or restaurants overlooking Portland harbour and watch the boats go by.

There are many attractions close by, including The National Sailing Academy, the magnificent golden sands of Weymouth beach, the Sea Life Centre, Sandworld, the old amusements in Alexandra Gardens, and Nothe Fort and Nothe Gardens, which are sure to excite any aspiring historians.

The Southwest coast path is right on the doorstep and takes in Portland's craggy "Isle," connected to the mainland by the 18-mile-long UNESCO world heritage site Chesil Beach.

The perfect home for a family of four wishing to holiday in Dorset is Chesil Retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
