The property

Nestled within the charming village of Upwey is this stunning holiday home, 40 The Ridgeway, perfectly positioned for enjoying both the coast and countryside landscapes of Dorset.

This property is an exceptional find for families of all ages, as well as for avid ramblers and beachcombers to enjoy, with a plethora of footpaths and the sands of Weymouth resting just moments away.

There is even access to the South Dorset Ridgeway from the lane at the end of the road.

Inside, contemporary-style and tradition seamlessly combine within the sitting room, with the woodburning stove positioned in front of the Smart TV.

Joining the space is a sleek dining table, where you can look forward to sociable moments with your loved ones, from tucking into home-cooked dishes, playing board games brought from home or popping open a bottle of bubbly to toast to a holiday to Dorset.

From here, slip through to the light-filled kitchen, where an array of modern appliances await the designated chef of the group to make the most of.

At the end of a bracing day of exploring, retire to one of the two bedrooms, comprising of a spacious double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both decorated with a neutral colour palette, quality linens and sumptuous pillows, bliss!

Balmy afternoons at 40 The Ridgeway can be spent within the enclosed garden, where table and chairs offer an alternative spot for savouring your morning brew, alfresco dining and basking in the sunshine.

Take a step back in time as you meander the village, taste the waters in the Wishing Well, visit the St Lawrence Church and explore the gardens before lingering over a tipple in one of the two village pubs!

Admire the quaint thatched cottages of the village before venturing further afield, with walks and cycling opportunities heading in the direction of both Weymouth and Dorchester to enjoy.

Alternatively, catch the regular bus that takes you into Weymouth town centre to enjoy its long arc of golden sands, visit Monkey World - home to over 250 rescued and endangered monkeys and apes or the SEA LIFE Centre, there is certainly something for the whole family here.

For an action-packed getaway to Dorset, bring your loved ones to 40 The Ridgeway.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


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.
