    “The cottage is in an amazing location and actually one of the best parts of town.”

    Very quiet at night. Parking can be tricky but as long as you don’t bother with the one at the bottom of the hill (which isn’t even listed on the council website and trip advisor reviews of it are dreadful) and use Asda carpark or council offices via the just park app there’s no problem. Bit of a steep hill and steps up to the road where cottage is, so just take it slow. But managed to park right outside also. A couple of steps down to the road is marked as no parking so this makes a handy ...

    Very quiet at night. Parking can be tricky but as long as you don’t bother with the one at the bottom of the hill (which isn’t even listed on the council website and trip advisor reviews of it are dreadful) and use Asda carpark or council offices via the just park app there’s no problem. Bit of a steep hill and steps up to the road where cottage is, so just take it slow. But managed to park right outside also. A couple of steps down to the road is marked as no parking so this makes a handy little load/unloading bay. The place was clean and a very well equipped kitchen but a bit tatty here and there, bumps and scrapes but this is because lots of people that rent places don’t take care. The little outside loo is great when there are six of you but the door to it and the whole courtyard need some TLC. But having a table and chairs provided meant for a nice sunny outside breakfast. The stairs inside are very steep and there are a few step’s around the house like up into kitchen from dinning room and lounge but only a few centimetres high and as the floor all one colour throughout I think it needs something to highlight the different levels. I tripped up on both when first arriving. Steps into front door and out to courtyard rather high. I’m mentioning all this because I feel it needs more details about them on website descriptions, “due to being such an old cottage so expect steep stairs and many different levels” It could possibly do with a second set of keys. The safe was also tricky at times to open and could do with a small light sensor so arriving home after dark we wouldn’t have had to use torches on phone. Beds were comfy and linen clean, towels also. Shower and bathroom facilities were good. My only concern I had was in one twin room there was a tv, great to have as if you had a couple of kids you may want to put them in there. But the bedroom furniture was all glass mirrored and although looking very glamorous it could be dangerous. And on the bedside table between the 2 beds the glass was all chipped right along the protruding edge. It didn’t feel too sharp but I think with a little bit of horseplay, as kids do, and someone falling on that there would be quite a nasty injury. I really do hope this gets looked at.

The property

Ocean Swell is a very well-presented cottage which is located close to Weymouth harbour and town centre.

The cottage is only a short distance from Weymouth's popular beaches and is a good base to explore the Jurassic Coast for families and couples alike.

The property accommodates up to six guests in three bedrooms spread over three floors.

There are two twin single rooms on the first floor with shower room and double bedroom on the top floor.

The stairs are quite narrow to both floors. Ground floor sitting area is huge, so you have plenty of space to relax after a day out exploring the area.

If it’s sunny you can enjoy an afternoon outside in the patio and read a book and have a cold drink. Ocean Swell is ideally located for access to the Harbour, Hope Square and Weymouth's long golden beach.

Stroll down to Hope Square to enjoy restaurants, tea rooms and pubs.

Walk through the square to reach the pretty Old Harbour.

Weymouth beach has shallow waters which entice bathers.

Traditional beach attractions such as donkey rides, Punch and Judy and trampolines help enhance the beach experience.

With many activities possible in Weymouth from a boat trip around the coast, visiting the Nothe Fort or a day at the Sea Life Centre it is possible to have fun filled days throughout your holiday.

If the weather is not so sunny you can visit a nine-screen cinema or amusement arcades. A short drive away from Weymouth you will find a beautiful and rugged the Isle of Portland with many walks inland and South West Coast path surrounding the isle.

Pay a visit to Chesil beach, a pebble beach starting a long 18-mile shingle beach which is home to unique wildlife.

A great day out would be a visit to West Bay with beautiful sand cliffs or Lyme Regis – pretty town loved by fossil hunting enthusiasts.

Venture to East and you will find one of the most photographed places in UK – Durdle Door arc and Lulworth cove in a walking distance. Stay at Ocean Swell with family or friends and enjoy this perfect base to explore Dorset.
