  • "Please supply oven gloves ."

    No WC cleaner to use. With 4 guests essential kit. The conservatory chairs are in need of repair. The cottage is lovely and and tastefully furnished. The shower is excellent which puts many places to shame. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Thanks for the wine etc.

  • "The cottage was well maintained and comfortable the cleanliness was exceptional."

    The owners had left welcoming gifts which were very much appreciated. The location was perfect. We enjoyed exploring the area with so much on the doorstep. We also ate in the two local pubs which were within walking distance and enjoyed the lovely fresh eggs we’d purchased from a local property. A slight negative to a perfect rental is there is a busy B road at the back of the property which I mention although it didn’t bother us too much. But might others if you’re planning on writing a novel in the garden. Would definitely go back again.

  • "Great cottage for a holiday near Weymouth."

    The house is very comfortable and clean. Lovely friendly neighbours (and owner if you get to meet her!)

  • "Knapp Cottage is a home away from home."

    Comfortable, clean and with a number of extra touches from the hosts, it was perfect for our relaxing break away. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfy and the garden a sun trap. Great location for getting to everywhere too, with a pub 50 yards away! We had a great stay in this lovely cottage.

  • "We can not fault the cottage at all."

    It was comfy and clean and had easy access to local amenities. The neighbours were friendly and welcoming. The hosts had provided milk, coffee, teabags and treats for our arrival which was a very welcome surprise after our long journey. There is a lovely walk down to the fleet and worth a visit.

  • "Perfect and comfortable home in great condition and close to countryside walks, pubs and Weymouth."

    Only suggestion I have is perhaps the addition of a nespresso machine.

  • "We had a fabulous time staying here."

    It felt like a real home from home, not like a holiday home at all. We were blessed with good weather, that helped. We really appreciated the extra touches, like ceiling fans in the bedroom, refreshments - a lovely bottle of wine, also tea, coffee, milk, sugar. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook if we wanted. Yes the road noise is there, but we expected that and booked anyway. Everything was so comfortable and cared for. Garden was nicely planted, not always the case when in a holiday home. I was happy to water. Neighbours were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely book again

  • "My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Knapp Cottage."

    It was a delightful cottage. Very clean and well presented a home from home. The cottage is very nicely furnished with absolutely every thing you need. Beds are very comfortable and lovely views out over the countryside to wake up to when you open the bedroom curtains and see the horses grazing in the fields. Good parking facilities also which is a bonus. The reason for the four stars is the slight drawback of the noisy road at the back of the property . We arrived during the rush hour and it was pretty busy and therefore quite noisy if the french doors were open. You do get used to it though therefore it wouldn't put us off booking here again although we didn't use the garden during our stay. Couple of nice local pubs nearby and everything including Weymouth town and seafront within short car journey. All in all a very good holiday cottage in nice location.

  • "This is a lovely cottage with a good sized TV in the main lounge with very comfortable seating."

    The beds were also very comfortable. Only drawback is the garden is small and next to a moderately busy B road.

The property

Knapp Cottage is in the suburb of Chickerell, in the sought-after county of Dorset, just a short drive away from the coast.

This stone-fronted property offers an enclosed garden for alfresco dining in the warmer months and two off-road parking spaces for your convenience.

Step inside and discover the spacious sitting room complete with a corner sofa, two armchairs, a TV and exposed beams for a rustic feel.

Moving through the property, the farm-style kitchen hosts everything you need for a self-catered stay with a rangemaster cooker to prepare heart-warming meals, along with a dishwasher and washing machine for easy clean ups.

Settle down in the conservatory-style dining room to tuck into home-cooked meals as you chatter about the adventures of the day or soak in the sun in the rear garden.

As the evening cools, retire inside and venture upstairs where a family bathroom offers a bath to relax your muscles and an overhead shower to rinse the sand away.

When sleep calls, choose between two tastefully furnished doubles, one with a TV and a single bedroom, ideal for the little one.

In the morning, you can freshen up in the bathroom or cloakroom before savouring a cup of tea on the outdoor decking.

A short stroll will lead you to the traditional local pub, The Lugger Inn for when you fancy a meal out there is a well-stocked convenience store for when you're running low on the essentials.

Jump in the car to venture to the seaside town of Weymouth, home to a variety of attractions, including the SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth, Weymouth Harbour, Sandsfoot Castle, and Greenhill Beach.

Weymouth is also a great place to enjoy a relaxing walk along the promenade, take in the stunning views of Weymouth Bay, and enjoy a bite to eat in one of the town's many restaurants and pubs.

Also with easy reach is the sweeping Chesil Beach and the tied island of Portland, an ancient town located in the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

The town is famed for its dramatic coastal scenery, historical buildings and the variety of outdoor activities on offer.

Visit Dorchester, the perfect place to explore the great outdoors, with plenty of green spaces to enjoy.

Borough Gardens is a beautiful park in the heart of the town, and Maiden Castle is a great spot for a picnic.

For long-lasting memories with your loved ones, choose Knapp Cottage.
