    “The property itself is lovely.”

    Just a few things that could be better are the beds have a very thin mattress which we didn’t find comfortable.There’s not enough storage like draws in both bedrooms which even for one week with only two of us wasn’t great. The bathroom has no window so by the time you’ve had a shower you feel like you’ve been in a steam room aswell.Very noisy fan in there that’s useless.

The property

Markham Cottage sits in an enviable position with uninterrupted views over to Chesil Beach and Weymouth Bay, next door to the owner’s property.

This lovingly renovated cottage is all on one level with a couple of steps to the front door and a couple of steps in the bedroom/bathroom area.

The open plan living kitchen dining area, is a spacious and yet cosy space, inviting you to curl up with a good book and relax, glass of wine in hand.

The perfectly positioned terrace means you can sit back and enjoy the vista whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside. You are only a few minutes' drive from the heart of Weymouth, and its golden sandy beach with all the restaurants, shops and amenities you may desire.

There are walks along the esplanade, fish and chips to be eaten on the harbour side and local ice creams to be sampled.

Markham Cottage is ideally positioned between Weymouth and Wyke Regis, providing easy access to Chesil Beach, Portland, the National Sailing Academy, Weymouth and surrounding Dorset attractions such as West Bay, Abbotsbury, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, all within an easy 30 minute drive and offering spectacular scenery along the way.

This cottage is the perfect place for a couples quiet retreat or a couple of friends to come and enjoy a Dorset holiday.

About the location

WYKE REGIS

Weymouth 2 miles; Dorchester 9 miles.

Wyke Regis is a village on the south western side of Weymouth that sits on the northern edges of Portland Harbour and reaches as far as the back of Chesil beach and The Fleet, just two miles from the centre of Weymouth. There are local shops, cafés and restaurants including the famous Crab House café, with it’s own oyster beds on the doorstep. The National Sailing School, an Olympic legacy, offers a wide variety of water sports and is just two miles away on the edge of Portland Harbour. The Fleet Lagoon that runs between Wyke Regis and Chesil beach is an important area for wildlife and there are many species of birds to be seen in the area, whilst Chesil beach is also a renowned spot for fishing. The Fleet is probably most famous for being the testing ground for Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb, immortalised in the film the Dam Busters. Wyke Regis is the perfect location from which to explore many of Dorset’s most iconic locations on the Jurassic Coast.

Note: Access to Markham Cottage is via a slope which can be driven down, or you may choose to walk. The neighbouring field next to the front terrace is at a lower ground level, the terrace has a small surrounding wall.
