  • "This is the second time we have stayed at Outlook Lodge in 2 years I got to say we could not recommend it enough."

    The location is perfect as you can just cross street and you are at the beach and within about half an hours walk you can be in Weymouth. We have a greyhound and the amount of walks are amazing and most places welcome dogs into the their establishments. The owner's are very welcoming and on our visit this year we noticed the Wi-Fi was not working and we weren't to worried but decided to let them know a couple of days later and they sorted it out while we where out for the day, so when we got back we found we the internet plus they had left us a bottle of wine which I thought was a very nice touch. I would definitely recommend staying.....also we have booked for next year!!

  • "We spent 5 days fantastic at Outlook Lodge."

    The lodge itself is perfect- it was clean, well-equipped and large enough for my family of 4, plus dog. The lodge felt completely private, despite the owners house being close by, and the garden was fully enclosed with great views across the fields. The lodge was located in a great position, it literally takes a couple of minutes from the lodge to the sand at bowleaze cove.

    We felt comfortable right from the start. Lovely place to stay with an enclosed garden for our Jack Russell to run around in. Nice and secluded but close to the beach. We had the hire of.a mobility scooter from a local company abc it fitted in the bin shed so that was good. Really enjoyed our week in the Outlook. The weather was kind to us. We didn’t see our hosts but knew they were there if we needed them. Sad to leave. We will be back.

    Look out for the deer and foxes in the evening in the field. The beds were comfy and the whole lodge furnished lovley. The kitchen had every utensil needed to cook with, as due to covid we didnt eat out. Its ideally situated to the beach and a short but steep walk down to the sea, fantastic location accessible to weymouth and other surrounding areas. Plenty of supermarkets in the area to shop in. The owners of the property were lovely and didnt disturb our holiday but we knew if we needed anything there were there for assistance. Will deffinatly book again in the future.

  • "The holiday was wonderful!"

    from organising to leaving, it was a very positive experience. Outlook Lodge was just off the road leading to the beach, that we took advantage of daily with both our son and dog. On arrival we met the very friendly and helpful owners who asked if we needed anything and then kindly left us to our own devices with the knowledge that they were available if needed. The lodge itself looked brand new and was exceptionally clean. Towels and bed linen were provided and ALL facilities were to a high standard and suitable for any family with a dog. The outside suited our curious Cocker spaniel as it was secure and well kept. The situation was ideal for visiting all the Dorset attractions and we chose to visit a couple of the popular ones like Durdle door and Cerne Abbas early evening to avoid the crowds as they are only a short half hour drive from the property. We were only a couple of miles from Weymouth supermarkets making it easy to do our holiday shop quickly at the start. Overall we had a tremendous time in Dorset and in particular at the Outlook lodge that is a very peaceful and private property to relax in.We would advise anybody to visit it!! And before you think it, we weren't paid to write this!! It actually was this good!!

    Very beautiful cottage: very clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated (pictures, furnitures, small details). Awesome bathroom and a nice little garden. Property lies a fee metres seperated from the road, so it is very quiet. Nevertheless everything you need is located within walking or short driving distance. Highly recommended!

  • "My wife and I have stayed at Outlook Lodge for three years in succession now, always in May around our wedding anniversary, and for us the location is ideal for a relaxing and peaceful holiday."

    Being retired but still busy people all year round, the seclusion and just the right amount of privacy we have experienced at the Lodge makes for the perfect relaxing break. Each year the weather has been great allowing us to opt for spending the days in the garden sunbathing and the evenings strolling on the beach or countryside, or we can choose to visit any number of the many attractions in Weymouth or elsewhere in Dorset, Reading thro’ the visitors book, we note that many other folk are of the same opinion, and return each each year to this lovely place. The first year we stayed here the Lodge was virtually brand new and we loved it’s modern layout, facilities and homely ‘seaside’ decor which are a testament to Dan and Lara’s hard work and care they have put into making the Lodge a great holiday home from home. and that care is really appreciated. As a holiday home we can find little that could be improved or changed, however, Dan and Lara asked for our comments or observations and so with a view to being of help we would suggest the addition of eggcups for our boiled egg breakfast (yeah, I know it’s picky !) and also we noticed the patio windows were in need of cleaning inside, ( likely overlooked this time as never been noticed before). We have already booked for 2020 and look forward to seeing Dan and Lara again, God willing.

    We first stayed here in May of that year and immediately loved the place. The modern construction of the lodge itself made it easy to live in and everything was new and of a high standard. But for us, the best thing was the seclusion and its location. Although it is set within the grounds of the owners house, we were impressed by the privacy and yet the outlook over rolling fields and countryside, yet only 100m from the sea.
