The property

A gorgeous, Grade II listed, 17th century thatched cottage, nestling opposite the village church in the picturesque Dorset village of Upwey, just four miles from Weymouth.

Comfortably furnished throughout, this lovely Weymouth cottage offers couples or small family groups a romantic and cosy holiday home.

Simply oozing character, this Upwey cottage boasts a wealth of original features, with some exposed stone walls, beams, wooden and flagstone floors, and a warming woodburning stove set into an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.

Guests also have the option of relaxing in the second cosy sitting room after a busy day exploring the area.

The well-tended, steep terraced garden of this Weymouth cottage provides a sunny, social space on the top level, from where you have a lovely view towards the church, making it a super place to relax and unwind after your day's activities.

Wander down the little lane to Upwey's famous Wishing Well, where you can treat yourself to a delicious cream tea, or follow the Wey Valley trail, which offers super walks across this lush green countryside.

An easy drive takes you down to the golden sands and attractive harbour at Weymouth, or explore along the stunning Jurassic Coast, taking in a trip across Chesil Beach causeway to the rugged Isle of Portland.

Alternatively, travel north to Dorchester, beloved by Thomas Hardy, and explore this wonderful town.

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.
