  • "There were 4 of us in our party and we arrived at the property at 23."

    00 in the pouring rain to find the house occupied!!! We had all the correct paperwork from Sykes Cottages and the people in the house had all the correct paperwork from Airbnb. Extremely frustrated and shocked to discover that the owner had double booked the property. We had no option at that time of night but to check in to a local hotel on the main street for 2 nights until the house became vacant in 2 days time. This cost us £600 for 2 rooms for 2 nights. We received no acknowledgement or apology from the property owners and in fact have only been reimbursed £300. Sykes Cottages have told us that the owner has refused to pay the balance. The house is extremely small and we found it cramped for 4 people. Location is superb.

The property

Nestled in the heart of Dorchester, close to a number of shops, restaurants and pubs, is this attractive townhouse, Princes House.

Set over three floors, this inviting escape is perfect for a family or group of friends looking to stay within the heart of this historic town.

Step inside directly in the open-plan living space, complete in a contemporary style with sleek furnishings throughout, here you can kick back after a long day and enjoy some TV catch-up.

At the other end lies a well-appointed kitchen, complete with all the essentials for home-cooking, whilst the dining table can be set for a feast, complimented with a bottle of fizz.

Head up to the first floor and discover the first bedroom, housing a double bed and offering a view, with a bathroom next door providing a bath and shower over.

Up another set of stairs leads to another double bedroom with views to the rear, plus there is a pretty single room to the front.

To the outside of Princes House is an enclosed courtyard where you can enjoy a coffee before heading out an exploring the town.

Wander down the traditional high street, filled with well-established retailers and independent businesses, and there’s plenty of restaurants, pubs and takeaways so you’ll have lots of choice when you don’t fancy like cooking.

Head to Dorset Museum and take a look at the exhibit on the history and culture of the area, including Iron Age artifacts alongside local fossils, whilst those younger guests will appreciate a visit to the Dorset Teddy Bear Museum.

Uncover the rest of Dorset as you hop in the car and drive to Weymouth, a popular seaside town where you can dip your toes in the sea and gaze at the boats in the harbour, whilst attractions such as the SEA LIFE Centre and Fantasy Island make it a worthwhile trip.

However you choose to spend your holiday here, Princes House provides a great base.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
