  • "Lovely warm and comfortable house."

    Kitchen has great appliances and has the required equipment to cook any dish. Really appreciated the treats left for us. Lovely conservatory but too cold to sit in at this time of year. Easy drive to Portland and 3km walk to Weymouth along a trail. Disappointed about no sea view.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay, it was lovely to meet you. We have taken note of the conservatory issue and will see if we can address this. I note you were disappointed not to have a sea view and we are sorry that you were disappointed but I would like to highlight that we do not advertise having a sea view in our property description. We do have a sea glimpse from the main bedroom but have chosen not to mention this in the information because even though we are moments from the beach and harbour area other properties restrict the view.

  • "Fantastic very clean & tidy property with great attention to detail (board games, books, dvd player etc)."

    All of the information about local places to visit along with restaurants & attractions are in handy well labelled files. The location of the property is equally fantastic as close to the beach, local amenities and some eateries. Weymouth centre is within a 20 min walk & the South West Coastal Path is on the doorstep. The property owner is very helpful too

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. You were lovely guests and we would be very glad to welcome you back again. Thank you for booking with us. Property Owner

  • "Very nice property in a good location for walking, water sports, fishing, transport (busses), running and visiting nearby places on the south coast."

    Would have liked a few more basic provisions in the kitchen such as tin foil, a small frying pan, and rinse aid plus salt for the dishwasher as we couldn't get it to operate. Hob a little tricky to use. Enjoyable stay despite the weather

    Thank you for your feedback. We provide baking paper rather than tin foil as it is more eco friendly. We apologise if you found the appliances complicated to use, we put modern appliances in including the ceramic hob to provide a high end kitchen. Instructions for all appliances are contained within our information folder at the property. Thank you for choosing to book with us, we are pleased that you had a comfortable and enjoyable stay and we look forward to seeing you in the future. Property Owner

    The property is very well equipped with quality furniture, fittings and is tastefully decorated. Designated car parking space is big plus for us. The location is great only a few steps to the beach. We happened to met Julie & Steve the owners on arrival and were made to feel very welcome. We have already booked again for next year so what more can we say!

    It was lovely to meet you both, we are really pleased that you had a lovely time and we are over the moon that you are returning next year. We look forward to welcoming you back and thank you so much. We really appreciate you booking with us. Property Owner

  • "We had a fab time at Chesil Retreat."

    Jools was so helpful with places to eat and places to visit. The house is lovely with everything you need. Perfectly clean and everything you could want. Loved using the conservatory on a rather wet bank holiday Monday. Minutes walk from the sea front with seats to just sit and watch the world go by and in the other direction there’s a small sandy area where kiddies and use the buckets and spades left in the box in the garden. Would definitely recommend the house again, in fact we have already and will return really soon.

    Thank you for the amazing review, it was lovely to chat with you even though it wasn't in person. We are so glad that you loved staying at Chesil Retreat and we would be over the moon to welcome you back. Property Owner

The property

This stylish home sits on the outskirts of Weymouth, just a moment's walk from the beach.

Well-equipped across two floors, Chesil Retreat welcomes families looking to escape the rush of the everyday and holiday in this popular Dorset region.

After a day on the beach, wash away the sand in the bathroom before getting comfortable in the living/dining room, turning on the TV or heading to the conservatory for a quiet read.

The designated chef can rustle up their go-to dish in the kitchen, equipped with all the essentials for a short break, along with a washing machine so you don’t need to bring your whole wardrobe!

Doors open out onto the rear garden, featuring a decked area with seating and table, perfect for hosting alfresco dining.

As the night rolls in, choose between two neatly presented bedrooms; the master hosts a king-size whilst the twin is a great choice for children.

With the town so close and much to do in the immediate area, you will be able to leave your car and discover Weymouth by foot for the duration of your stay.

Pick up a portion of fish and chips and sit on the harbour wall as you watch the boats bob with the tide, or choose locally made ice cream or a gin and tonic from one of the bars.

There's a host of attractions nearby; see life underwater at SEA LIFE CENTRE, marvel at the amazing creatures at Sandworld, whilst the classic amusements at Alexandra Gardens are sure to entertain and those budding historians can be fascinated by Nothe Fort and Nothe Gardens.

Further attractions include the glorious beach with its arc of golden sand, perfect for a summer's afternoon, whilst walking opportunities can be found along the rugged “Isle” of Portland, linked to the mainland by the 18-mile long Chesil Beach.

Chesil Retreat really is the ideal home for a family of four looking to enjoy some time in Dorset.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
