    “Lovely spot.”

    Peaceful and pretty village with good walking routes from the cottage. The Wishing Well Tearooms (just up the lane) had gorgeous gardens to sit in and they serve a lovely brunch and have an amazing selection of cakes. ...

    Peaceful and pretty village with good walking routes from the cottage. The Wishing Well Tearooms (just up the lane) had gorgeous gardens to sit in and they serve a lovely brunch and have an amazing selection of cakes. Great location for getting to the coast and to Weymouth. The cottage provided all that we needed. A bunch of fresh flowers and biscuits on arrival with provisions of tea and coffee in the kitchen were nice touches and appreciated. We had troubles with the heating (it was on a timer that we were unable change), and the heating wouldn't come on in the morning when adjusting the thermostat. Had to wait until going out for a walk and getting a signal on the phone (no phone signal at the cottage) to call Sykes Cottages and have an engineer come out to fix the problem. We were then able to turn the heating on when we wanted to, first thing in the morning. No instructions or bin for recycling rubbish- so we ended up bringing some of our recycling home with us but felt bad about putting other recyclable rubbish into the general waste.

With ample seating, settle down and plan your holiday itinerary or relax and catch up on your favourite TV shows after a busy day exploring the local area.

The kitchen diner is spacious and well equipped for you to rustle up tasty meals to enjoy at the dining table.

Head out of the door from the kitchen into the enclosed patio area complete with a bistro style table and chairs for you to sit with your morning cup of tea or coffee.

Unwind with a good book or just enjoy spending time with your loved ones over an evening glass of wine in the cool air.

The bedrooms are on the first floor along with the bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC, with both bedrooms housing a double bed and enjoying a light and airy feel.

Upwey sits at the foot of the Wey Valley's chalk hills with the source of the River Wey running through the village, home to the famous Wishing Well and surrounded by beautiful gardens and flowers.

The property sits opposite the majestic St Lawrence Church where parts of the tower date back to the 12th century and internally you will see some superb murals on its church walls.

There are many footpaths in the village which offer walks up through the scenic hills and countryside and nearby pubs serving delicious home cooked food and local ales.

Weymouth's award winning golden sandy beach and busy fishing harbour are only a 10 minute car or bus ride away.

About the location


Dorchester 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.
