    “We had such an amazing week at Upper Butchers Cottage!”

    The location was absolutely perfect for exploring Dorset and the cottage itself was spotless and super cosy. We were very lucky with the weather all week so made use of the enclosed garden! We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck chairs for a few hours in the evening after walks along the beach. Beach towels & dog towels provided which I thought was a lovely touch! We also loved the big window in the living room, the view is so nice and we enjoyed a cup of tea looking out on a morning! ...

    The location was absolutely perfect for exploring Dorset and the cottage itself was spotless and super cosy. We were very lucky with the weather all week so made use of the enclosed garden!

We also loved the big window in the living room, the view is so nice and we enjoyed a cup of tea looking out on a morning! We visited Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth, Ringstead Bay, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, West Bay, Chesil Beach and Portland during our stay - all within an hour drive and all stunning places! It was our first holiday with our puppy Archie and everywhere was so dog friendly - it was great! We can highly recommend a few places to eat during your stay: - The Lookout Cafe at Bowleaze Cove for a top breakfast! - Lulworth Cove Inn - great little sun spot and really good food! - The Bell Cliff cafe at Lyme Regis - amazing views! Perfect stop for a coffee! - The cafe on Portland island does a delicious cream tea. - Lyme’s Fish Bar in Lyme Regis for fish & chips! - All the cafes/restaurants along the Harbour in Weymouth are lovely! Such a nice spot to sit for a drink or a bite to eat. We went to Custom House Cafe & Quayside Bar - both really good! We are quite honestly so upset to be home! The owners are also lovely! Very friendly and kind and we had a good chat with them :) I can’t recommend this beautiful cottage enough, we felt right at home all week and Archie really enjoyed himself too! I’m sure we will be back again!

The property

Weymouth 4.1 miles.

Lying in a residential area of Weymouth, and just a 10 minute drive to the bustling town centre, is 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.
