The property

This historic, harbourside cottage occupies one of the most enviable positions in Weymouth, only a few doors from Weymouth Sailing Club and the Lifeboat Station.

There are stunning harbour views from every window overlooking the glistening waters and moored boats, while the bedrooms offer glimpses over Weymouth Beach and beyond.

With the rare addition of two parking spaces, this is a true hidden gem in a wonderful part of Dorset, ideal for families or groups of friends.

Through the front door, you will find yourself welcomed into the hallway with a beautiful stained glass door and rope banisters climbing the stairs.

The ground floor offers a large sitting/dining room, where you can unwind in front of the TV or simply admire the scenery through the window with a refreshing drink in hand, before gathering around the dining table for a freshly prepared meal.

The antique petrol pump and boat lights makes a great talking point as you tuck into your dinner.

There is a well-equipped kitchen and utility room with everything you need for cooking up a storm, although be sure to enjoy local fish and chips on the harbourside at least once!

On the first floor, you will find a large family bathroom and another sitting room with spectacular, elevated views over the waterfront, as well as find the first of the bedrooms.

Rise to the second floor to be introduced to the master bedroom, with more stunning vistas reaching over the rooftops to the beach and along the Jurassic Coast.

You will also find a walk-in wardrobe area and large en-suite shower room.

Finally, on the third floor are two more bedrooms both with doubles tucked away in the eaves of the house.

After a long day exploring the local sights, choose to sit and enjoy the seaside sounds with a glass of your favourite tipple out in the small, private courtyard.

If you manage to stop gazing at the views and watching harbour life, then you are ideally located for exploring Weymouth on foot.

Weymouth Beach is just a short rowboat ferry ride across the water, with the rowboat ferry being just paces from the front door.

There are shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance and of course many fish and chip shops.

Pay a visit to the Nothe Fort and Gardens, which offer spectacular views over Weymouth and Portland with a fabulous history behind it shown in the many displays and exhibits dotted around the site.

Stanley House is a remarkable holiday home in the heart of Weymouth, to be enjoyed the year-round.
