The property

Located within the grounds of the Owners 17th century thatched Manor, one of the oldest and prettiest properties in Chickerell, Weymouth, this assiduously designed and high specification character barn conversion is bound to be a favourite.

The centrepiece of Fossil Barn is the hand built oak and glass fronted living area with solid oak flooring throughout.

With a generous fully enclosed garden to admire from the impressive lounge, you can leave open the large glazed Oak doors on a summers day to let the outside in or close them and snuggle up on a winters day.

Complementing the living area is a generous modern kitchen which feels like the heart of the property with its oak floors and warm tones of the wooden worktops.

Adding to the sense of luxury and convenience are the bath/shower rooms, effectively one for each of the two bedrooms.

A handcrafted stained glass fossil design window in the main bedroom echoes the attention to detail that this property enjoys.

A tranquil coastal village within a mile of the Fleet, the largest natural inlet of sea water in England.

The village has shops, two public houses, a restaurant, chemist and post office.

The Turks Head, just a few minutes' walk from Fossil Barn is well renowned locally as it provides good portions of home cooked food which can be enjoyed both inside and in the pub garden.

Just outside the town boundary of Weymouth, a Georgian seaside resort which you can dip into easily if you would like a day on the award winning blue flag sandy beach or a stroll along the pretty harbour in addition to exploring the World Heritage Jurassic coast hunting for fossils.

A warm Dorset welcome awaits you when you arrive at Fossil Barn, fresh and delicious Dorset apple cake (the apples are picked from the garden) to accompany the welcome tea and coffee, a perfect way to settle you into your holiday.

  • “Mike and Julie were brilliant hosts.”

    The welcome pack, apple cake tea sugar etc plus the ppi pack were more than we expected. Really great place to stay.
