    “Riverhouse Lodge was very welcoming set in a lovely garden, it had everything we needed for our stay.”

    The owners Lorainne and her husband were there on our arrival gave us lots of advice on places to visit including the coastal road, and when we left came out to say goodbye.

    The owners Lorainne and her husband were there on our arrival gave us lots of advice on places to visit including the coastal road, and when we left came out to say goodbye. Although the weather could have been better we found plenty of things to do. We would highly recommend Riverside Lodge for a stay in Dorset, and we have done so already to friends and family Ingram family - May 2021

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.
