The property

Beachside Cottage is the GOLD WINNER Best for Beaches 2019 Sykes Gems recognises the very best properties in the collection.

Winners were chosen by an expert panel of judges, taking into account customer satisfaction scores. Beachside cottage is in an ideal location for a seaside holiday near Bowleaze cove in Preston, Dorset.

If you are looking for a seaside holiday with beach few seconds away from the front door, you won’t be disappointed.

Couples and small family would benefit most from this holiday home. The property affords views from its own patio area and it is literally a 20 second stroll to the beach.

It is very bright and well equipped with quality fittings and linen.

A large upstairs balcony has panoramic views of the sea stretching from Portland to Lulworth and beyond.

In the evening the twinkling lights yawning their way into Weymouth cast a magical aura across the bay.

Excellent water sports including Kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing and paddle boarding can be enjoyed directly from the front of the property, or perhaps you would prefer to observe, with excellent views from the balcony or living room.

We are located directly next door to Jurassic Coast Activities, where you can book a host of activities or where you can hire a paddle board or a cycle and explore the area with a bike.

For a change from the beach, a brisk level walk from the cottage is the Lodmoor Country Park, which encompasses the Sea Life centre, Go Karts, Sandworld, Pirate mini golf as well as the Lodmoor Nature Reserve.

Alternatively, keep walking down the seafront to arrive in the centre of Weymouth town, which is about 30 mins walk. The Spyglass Inn (the local Harvester) or the local convenience store is around a minute walk away and the Oasis Cafe is just a few steps away serving snacks, meals and good coffee.

Excellently located for going out of town for day trips to local beauty spots along the South Dorset coast, or to popular attractions such as Monkey World gives you further options during your stay. Sleeping up to 4 people, it’s ideal getaway for couples or a small family, being in a perfect spot close enough to walk to Weymouth and still be away from all hustle and bustle from the centre.

About the location


Bowleaze sits behind Bowleaze Cove and right at the end of Weymouth’s long 3-mile beach front perched on the edge of Preston. This small sand and shingle beach is a popular choice for those who like to use Jet Ski’s as it’s one of the few areas on the beach front they can be used freely. This area of Weymouth offers beautiful views back towards Weymouth and Portland whilst only being a short distance from the main beach and town centre. There are many places to eat and you can join the south west coast path towards Osmington Mills, Ringstead and beyond from here. Predominantly a residential area, it’s perfect those who want to escape to the seaside but retain the tranquillity of a residential area.

Note: max 4 people.
Note: Parking is in a car park approximately two and half minutes walk from the property.
Note: This property also overlooks a pay and display car park with Automatic Number Plate Recognition. This is NOT where your car will be parked.
Note: Parking Permit is only available March - November.

  • Winter
  • Off-season
