  • "Lovely house to stay in for the week."

    The only downside was the shower screen door on the left's front rollers kept coming out so needs tightening up. The mattress protectors were VERY rustly like sleeping on plastic bags so hard to sleep when someone moves. More pegs are needed to use the washing line. Apart from that it is a lovely house in a fab location with an amazing view. Really clean and the local beach and Rodwell trail was fantastic.

  • "Clean comfortable property well placed for a dog or human swim in a tiny bay."

    Larger beach at Weymouth if you want the buzz of people. Easy 2 miles walk along tarmaced Rodwell trail into Weymouth. Super comfortable double bed and sofa, great for resting weary bones after lots of walking

  • "We had a lovely stay at Tidal Drift."

    The property is just what we hoped for, clean, comfortable, stunning views of the sea which is literally a stones throw away. Magnificent sea view from main bedroom to wake up to every morning. Beautiful walks. Both sets of neighbours very friendly. Will definitely be booking again

  • "Tidal Drift is an extremely comfortable house in an excellent location, close to the sea."

    The property was very clean with extremely comfortable beds. Everything you could possibly need was provided, especially in the kitchen. This is by far the best holiday property we have rented and would highly recommend it others. Many thanks to the owner for the tea/coffee/ milk/biscuits on arrival, very much appreciated.

  • "Our stay was lovely."

    Beautiful clean house and very comfortable. Just two small points to mention. The kettle needs de-scaling as the water poured from it leaves an unpleasant look to your tea. We used a saucepan during our stay. And the only other small thing is that there is no blind at the bathroom window. Apart from that beautiful well equipped house.

  • "Lovely little house with a sea view."

    An easy walk into Weymouth one way and to Chesil Beach the other.

  • "Location was superb; close to the bus routes and the beach, with great views over Portland Harbour."

    The house is very tastefully decorated and very welcoming. The only minor gripe is that the shower is hard to switch on and off. Apart from that this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in in Weymouth. Thank you very much for a great Easter Break

  • "Great place the sea views from the bedroom are amazing."

    Only thing which would make it better would be an outside light for the garden. Ideal for stays with pets.

  • "A beautiful house in a fantastic location."

    It was like home from home and so clean and comfortable. Loved having a sea view from the main bedroom window and it was wonderful being so close to a beach. We walked into Weymouth on several occasions as well as along the causeway to Chesil Beach and across to Portland. Would highly recommend this house and will definitely be back again. Thank you so much

  • "We really loved Tidal Drift and found it to be a genuine home-from-home!"

    We had one or two ideas we wanted to share with you which we hope might make it even better: As a family we are a bit driven by time (even on holiday!) and so wondered if the addition of a kitchen clock might help others of a like mind; The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with excellent pans and knives and we were comfortably able to prepare ourselves any kind of meal that we wanted (not always true of holiday properties!). We did however feel the lack of kitchen tongs, and also (in the city of fish) a fish-slice. We actually bought a fish-slice, and hopefully left it for the house; We thought it might be a lovely addition to provide a guest book for comments. This is a great way for families to extol the virtues of the property to you (of course!) but also to leave advice and experiences for subsequent guests ("don't miss fireworks on a Monday", "the Crab House is gorgeous!", etc.); Finally, we generated (ahem) a fair quantity of bottles over our two weeks and were a bit disappointed that we couldn't recycle them. We understand that you have simplified the often-complex local rules on how to process rubbish, but would it be possible to include a glass recycling box in addition to the black bin?

    Thank you so much for your review, we are so delighted that you had such a lovely holiday at Tidal Drift. Guest feedback is always very valuable, and we have noted all your suggestions. Unfortunately Dorset Council process the refuse from Tidal Drift, and do not currently offer recycling with the service they provide for our property. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful break staying at Tidal Drift."

    The house was lovely. Very clean, spacious and well presented. Facilities were good and when we contacted to suggest a couple of items for the house, they were delivered promptly. Location is perfect perfect the quiet cove of Smallmouth, with sandy beach and calm water. Easy drive or lovely coastal walk to Weymouth, and corner shop a short walk. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for having us!

    Would benefit from fans in the rooms as it was very warm at night during our stay.

    On the Rodwell Trail for tranquil dog walks, and very close to the kitesurfing beach for when the wind is up. It was immaculately clean, comfortable and with all amenities (with the exception of a barbecue). Would highly recommend, if you can book it!

The property

A lovely and well-presented holiday home resting just moments from the beautiful stetch of sandy beach known as Smallmouth Bay, on the edge of the mesmerising Portland Harbour and Ferrybridge.

This truly tranquil setting makes Tidal Drift a wonderful base for a family or group of friends looking for a coastal getaway in the resort of Weymouth in the delightful County of Dorset.

Sleeping up to 5 guests, enter the property and gather together in the sitting room where you plan your holiday itinerary or reminisce on the adventures had so far, before flicking on the TV to catch up on your favourite shows.

The kitchen diner is equipped with all you need for a self-catering stay and the designated chef of the party can set to work in preparing delicious home cooked meals to be enjoyed at the dining table, overlooking the enclosed garden.

Throw open the patio doors and let in the seaside breeze, whilst relaxing on the decking with an enthralling novel, providing peace of mind as the sun sets on another day well spent with your loved ones.

The convenience of a cloakroom with a basin and WC completes the ground floor of this accommodation.

When night calls, climb the stairs and choose from one of the three bedrooms, comprised of a king-size, twin and single, all served by a delightful shower room with walk-in shower.

Portland Bill, a rugged and unique part of the island can be reached within a short car ride and is home to the majestic red and white striped lighthouse which stands at 41 meters tall and plays an important part of ensuring the safety of passing vessels.

Walkers and cyclists can delight in the Portland loop of the South West Coast Path which circles around the island mapping out a trail of dramatic cliffs, rare plants and secluded coves, and there is a wide range of activities to participate in such as rock climbing, abseiling, dingy sailing and kite-surfing.

A leisurely 30 minutes' walk away along the 'Rodwell Trail', an old converted railway line will lead you to Weymouth town centre where you will find many shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as the award winning golden sandy beach which is is backed by the attractive Georgian esplanade, full to the brim with things to do to keep the while family entertained.

However you chose to spend your days whilst holidaying on the spectacular Jurassic coast, Tidal Drift is a wonderful base from which to explore all that this beautiful town has to offer.

About the location


Weymouth 2 miles; Dorchester 9 miles.

Wyke Regis is a village on the south western side of Weymouth that sits on the northern edges of Portland Harbour and reaches as far as the back of Chesil beach and The Fleet, just two miles from the centre of Weymouth. There are local shops, cafés and restaurants including the famous Crab House café, with it’s own oyster beds on the doorstep. The National Sailing School, an Olympic legacy, offers a wide variety of water sports and is just two miles away on the edge of Portland Harbour. The Fleet Lagoon that runs between Wyke Regis and Chesil beach is an important area for wildlife and there are many species of birds to be seen in the area, whilst Chesil beach is also a renowned spot for fishing. The Fleet is probably most famous for being the testing ground for Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb, immortalised in the film the Dam Busters. Wyke Regis is the perfect location from which to explore many of Dorset’s most iconic locations on the Jurassic Coast.
