The property

Firkin is a beautiful, fully renovated cottage only a stroll away from the Brewers Quay and Newton's Cove area of Weymouth.

This property is perfect for a quiet holiday slightly away from the bustle of the main town although still very close to the Old Harbour and Hope Square.

Inside the standard of finish is exceptional and attention to detail obvious.

The pretty enclosed rear cottage garden has a patio area with garden furniture, so you may enjoy the sun or eating alfresco.

Firkin, so named after the traditional 72-pint barrel used at the now converted local Devenish Brewery, is a favourite of our discerning guests due to its contemporary presentation and proven location. Just a short drive away is beautiful Isle of Portland loved by water sports enthusiasts.

Chesil beach visitor centre offers a glimpse to the area’s wildlife and you can walk up the beach and enjoy watching crashing waves to the shore.

On windy days it’s a sight not to miss. Venture further and you find a beautiful village of Abbotsbury where you will find the one and only in the world Abbotsbury Swannery where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans.

This historic village is sheltered by Ridgeway hills that inspired a few books of Dorset’s famous writer Thomas Hardy.

From the town centre there are so many places to visit within a walking distance: St. Catherine’s Chapel, St. Nicholas Church, Chesil Beach, Sub-tropical gardens.

If you are up for an energetic walk, a visit to Abbotsbury Castle, the Iron Age hillfort, is a must of the stunning scenery around.

Stay in this lovely house with friends or have a family gathering and explore beautiful Dorset coast.
