About the location
Dorchester 4 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 which bubbles up from an underground spring. Upwey is well-known for its Wishing Well, where George III once sought the benefits of the natural spring water, but is now a delightful tea room serving traditional cream teas. 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, whilst the market town of Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s ’Casterbridge’ is also just a short drive or bus ride away. Walkers to Upwey can easily travel by train and bus to the Wishing Well. An attractive village location and an ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
