    Also it was very useful to be given an emergency phone number for Dream Cottages in case of need. The house was in an excellent situation, right by the beach and great for doing lots of activities accessible on foot or by bus, both near to the house and in Weymouth and Portland. The Chesil Beach Centre, just across the Portland bridge, has great interactive displays about wildlife and an excellent cafe. We also loved nearby Billy Winter's cafe for the food and watching the kitesurfers! All facilities in the house were as described, plus a highchair and potty were provided as well as the cot mentioned on the website, very useful since we came on public transport and could not bring either of those. The highchair could be included on the website since it is currently not mentioned? We particularly enjoyed the equipment in the garage (as well as kayaks and bikes as promised, there was a scooter and bucket and spade, all perfect for my 4 year old granddaughter!) The many toys and games provided were also great for the four year old and 11 month old, especially since we did not come by car so could not bring many ourselves.

The property

Still Waters is adjacent to a small sandy beach in Weymouth area Wyke Regis with glorious views across to the Island of Portland.

The semi-detached property is presented and equipped to a high standard, lovely accommodation for all family to enjoy.

The property is cosy and well-equipped, three bedrooms boasting with glorious sea views through all windows.

Enjoy your meal in the dining area with open door to the landscaped patio to get a breeze of fresh air.

Located close to sandbanks, which leave pockets of water from the Fleet hiding cockles, winkles and tiny fish it’s a fascinating pastime for children.

Straight out of your front door you can go windsurfing on some of the most challenging waters around the island, so the property is perfectly suited for water sports enthusiasts as well.

National Sailing Academy in the Isle of Portland is a short drive away too.

A walk along the old railway lines that now serve as a picturesque Rodwell trail adjacent the coast offers a relaxing way to pass time.

The railway line takes you to sandy Sandsfoot beach, a favourite place of the locals.

Continue the walk along the lines into Weymouth and discover the golden sands and picturesque harbour with its varied eating places.

As the Weymouth to Portland road lies behind the high rear wall to the back garden, you are in a perfect location to explore this Dorset area with a car or a bus, or on foot.

Explore the Island of Portland with its quarries and fascinating bird life by taking South West Coast path which will take to you to three lighthouses, XIII century church ruins, Church Ope Cove, Portland Harbour and more.

Pay a visit to the Chesil Beach centre which is a short stroll away and get to know about wildlife on the Fleet and Chesil bank, as well as it’s a good spot to relax and enjoy waves crashing to the shore.

The sunsets are just gorgeous to watch with your loved ones from the top of the Chesil beach – the views reach far to West Bay, Lyme Regis towards Devon. If you are a water sports enthusiast with friends or family looking for a holiday home with sea views not as close to the Weymouth’s centre, but close to the quieter beach, Still Waters is a perfect choice.

About the location

WYKE REGIS

Weymouth 2 miles; Dorchester 9 miles.

Wyke Regis is village on the south western side of Weymouth that sits on the northern edges of Portland harbour and reaches as far as the back of Chesil beach and The Fleet. 2 miles from the centre of Weymouth. There are local shops, cafés and restaurants including The famous Crab House café, with it’s own Oyster beds on the doorstep. The National Sailing school, an Olympic legacy, offers a wide variety of water sports and is just 2 miles away on the edge of Portland harbour. The Fleet lagoon that runs between Wyke Regis and Chesil beach is an important area for wildlife and there are many species of birds to be seen in the area. Chesil beach is also a renowned spot for fishing. The Fleet is probably most famous for being the testing ground for Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb, immortalised in the film the Dam Busters. Wyke Regis is the perfect location from which to explore many of Dorset’s most iconic locations on the Jurassic coast.

Note: max 7 people. Note: guests need to bring their own cot linen. Note: the garage is used for storage only, contains kayaks and bikes for guests’ use – at your own risk. Note: the Weymouth to Portland road lies behind the high rear wall to the back garden.
