    We had a such a lovely stay with our 4 children thoroughly enjoying all of the facilities and sports' equipment on offer. It was great having such easy access to the canal to make use of our own paddle board too. The house was super clean with everything we needed for our stay enabling us to cook for our family for the duration. Owing to the un favourable weather and also the excitement of the England football matches we were also delighted to make use of the comforts of the living area, games ...

    We had a such a lovely stay with our 4 children thoroughly enjoying all of the facilities and sports' equipment on offer. It was great having such easy access to the canal to make use of our own paddle board too. The house was super clean with everything we needed for our stay enabling us to cook for our family for the duration. Owing to the un favourable weather and also the excitement of the England football matches we were also delighted to make use of the comforts of the living area, games and TV screen. We really enjoyed the walks and exploring the wildlife. All in all, we really enjoyed our trip.

About the location

DORCHESTER

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!

Please note the swimming pool will be out of use until the beginning of May 2024
