The property

Lying on the fringes of the seaside resort of Weymouth on the Dorset coast is this apartment, Upper Butchers Cottage, a tucked away first-floor apartment, lovingly renovated to provide a peaceful sanctuary for a couple looking for a relaxing retreat near to the Jurassic Coast.

Sleeping up to two guests in one king-size bedroom, this property boast a delightful sitting room with a charming window seat which overlooks the scenic Dorset countryside with a pair of binoculars left for you to take in your glorious surroundings.

Put your feet up and relax on the large sofa, catching up on your favourite TV shows or reading that book you have been saving, or simply spend time with your loved one, planning your holiday itinerary and reminiscing on the days spent so far.

Carry your conversations to the kitchen/diner where you will find all you need to rustle up a delicious meal for two for those quiet evenings in.

When day turns to night, retire to the well-presented bedroom, with plenty of storage for your things here.

Freshen up in the modern space of the bathroom, featuring a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Sit with your morning cup of tea or coffee or unwind with an evening glass of wine in the pretty gardens that offer a peaceful haven to enjoy some fresh air, surrounded by mature bushes and shrubs, and with a gravel pathway that leads to a decked seating area.

Pick up your daily essentials from the local convenience store found opposite the property, while the Royal Standard public house is less than a mile away and serves good food and real ales, with the town centre being reached in just over 4 miles where you will be spoilt for choice with many bars, cafés and restaurants.

The award-winning sandy Weymouth Beach is home to many traditional seaside attractions and is backed by the an attractive Georgian esplanade, lined with ice cream parlours and tourist shops, a perfect spot for discovering that special souvenir.

Enjoy sunbathing on the sands, trying out fun watersports or strolling along the waters edge.

The historic harbour provides a leisurely stroll around the edge of the town where you can enjoy the coming and goings of yachts, tall ships and boats whilst enjoying delicious fresh fish and chips from one of the takeaway kiosks.

Extend your walk down the historic Nothe Fort and Gardens, continuing along to the ruins of Sandsfoot Castle before finding Chesil Beach and the Isle of Portland, both well worth exploring.

Upper Butchers Cottage is a real home away from home, allowing you to explore all the delights that Dorset has to offer. Please note, this property can be booked alongside Lower Butchers Cottage (ref 1075372) if you were looking to go away with another couple.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location

UPWEY

Dorchester 4.5 miles; Weymouth 4 miles.

The picturesque village of Upwey lies just four miles north of Weymouth, nestling beneath the Dorset Ridgeway, and takes its name from the shallow chalk stream, the River Wey, which bubbles up here from an underground spring. Upwey is well-known for its Wishing Well, where George III once sought the benefits of the natural spring water. It is now a delightful tea room, serving lunches and traditional cream teas. There are a number of footpaths leading directly from the village to miles of unspoilt countryside, and close by is the market town of Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s ’Casterbridge’. An easy drive or bus ride takes you to the popular seaside resort of Weymouth offering visitors glorious golden sandy beaches, excellent watersports facilities and a bustling harbour. An attractive village location and an ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Please note: There is a flight of steps leading up to the front door of the property.
Please note: There are two steps from the living room down to the kitchen.
