  • "Lovely property which was ideal for our party consisting of myself partner and little boy."

    Location is ideal lots of amenities local. Just a small point regarding the taps in the kitchen I was stood for a while stumped for a moment as to why I couldn’t get hot water in the kitchen only to realise that the hot and cold tap are on the wrong way round and the cold tap was in fact hot water. Maybe a little note/sign just to avoid confusion would be helpful. If you’re a couple or small family looking for a home from home visit to Weymouth this is definitely a good property for you. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Good Afternoon Rhia Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely review. So sorry about the taps , they have been recently fitted the correct way around but the hot and cold markers were put on the wrong taps this has now been rectified. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday in Weymouth and for leaving the bungalow so clean and tidy. Regards Debbie & Phil Property Owner

  • "Just returned from a wonderful stay at The Willow!"

    We had seen an apartment which was in the centre of Weymouth but so glad we went with The Willow. It’s spacious, clean and well presented, offered all the amenities that you need. The garden itself was lovely and with 2 young children they made use of it. The lighting around the garden in the evening was a nice touch. Location is great, only a short drive to the centre of Weymouth. Wished we booked a little longer! Have recommended to my family and friends, we’ll definitely book again!

    Good Morning Gemma Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. So glad you chose to come and stay at “The Willows”. It sounds as though you and the family had a wonderful time in Weymouth. Really happy you and the children enjoyed the bungalow and it’s amenities and had the enjoyment of the garden too. Thank you for leaving it so clean and tidy. Looking forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards Debbie & Phil Property Owner

    And a great base for Dorset. Lovely to be able to sit in the garden in a summers evening! Very clean and I love the fact that a bathroom shower mat was there for the shower ! This made sound silly but showers are slippy! I will book this property again!

  • "This is a lovely little bungalow and it has been renovated beautifully."

    Even the beds were comfortable which almost never happens in a holiday home :-) Only criticism is that the main bed isn't a king size which would have made it totally perfect.

    Good Morning Karen Thank you for taking the time to do a lovely review for us. We are so pleased you liked the decor and found the beds so comfy. The main bed is actually a king size although it is only standard king and not a super king. We do do hope you had a great holiday in Weymouth and hope you come and stay with us again. Thank you for leaving the property in a clean and tidy condition. Kind regards Debbie & Phil Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week away at The Willows."

    It's a lovely well appointed property. Lots of information about cooker /dishwasher/appliances etc. All on one level which for us was essential. Lovely sunny garden. Plenty to do in the area, enjoyed the walk to Bowleaze cove. We loved the fact that it was quiet when we came back, made it so relaxing. Another front door key would have been useful. We will definitely return . Thank you Anne

    Good Morning Anne Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you had a lovely holiday in Weymouth and enjoyed our bungalow. As for the key we will have a chat with Dream Cottages to see if this is possible. We do hope to see you again and would like to thank you for leaving the bungalow so clean and tidy .

  • "We have just returned from The Willows, Preston, Dorset."

    The bungalow was beautifully decorated and well equipped and immaculately clean. The bedding and towels were pristine but there were no pillow protectors on the pillows, just pillow slips. We did have a major problem with the steps leading into the front door and the steps leading out to the terrace and garden. These steps were not mentioned in the holiday bungalow description. We are both elderly and disabled and therefore chose this bungalow carefully to consider our mobility. The catch on the back door (to keep it open) is behind the door and difficult to reach with 2 hidden steps at the side of the terrace. Whilst trying to undo the catch to close the door, my wife slipped on the side step and had a fall. Luckily no bones broken but had nasty cuts and scratches on her foot. She takes a blood thinner so we had a problem trying to stem the bleeding. The terrace paving stones are all in line and deceiving when looking out from the back door and they lead down in various heights which is disconcerting. Not only did we have problems with these steps but a toddler could easily fall and have devastating injuries. There is nothing to hold onto to steady yourself either. We strongly advise that there should be a handrail. The front door had a high lip leading out to the first very narrow step and then to a wider step before reaching the path. This narrow step is hazardous and all together difficult to manoeuvre when you have mobility problems like 2 crutches to aid walking. All these hazards should have been mentioned in the description for this holiday home. Sorry to be so critical but we were very happy with the bungalow in general.

  • "Lovely property, clean and private garden which could have benefited from a table to eat off outside especially as weather was so beautiful."

    Very difficult eating off your lap and no trays provided either. Shower could do with a container to hold your bathing items. Our son who was with us has a walking disability and found it difficult to keep bending and also a Bath mat in shower is required. We had to use towel in shower so he wouldn’t slip! Also no casserole dishes or Tupperware boxes to cook/store things in or put in microwave. A squeeze mop would be handy to mop up water from shower and clean floor. All just little things. A nice holiday we had anyway.

    Good Afternoon Michael Thank you for your recent review and appreciative comments which we have taken on board. As you probably noticed everything is brand new in the property ,this is a new venture for us so suggestions are most welcomed as we want to make your stay a rememberable home from home experience. Following your comments we have added extra non slip trays for guests to use as an alternative to the breakfast bar. Also added non slip shower mat, an assortment of Pyrex and microwave dishes and plastic storage containers. We have added a table and chairs for alfresco dining to enhance the garden furniture which was already there. We do hope you enjoyed your stay in Weymouth and come and visit The Willows again for a holiday in the future. We would like to thank you for leaving the bungalow so clean and tidy , this is very much appreciated. Kind regards Debbie & Phil Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the village of Preston, a quaint settlement resting near the edge of the impressive Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies this delightful, two-bedroom holiday bungalow, The Willows.

With parking, an enclosed rear garden, and well-presented interiors finished to a high standard, this charming property welcomes a family of four or a group of couples looking to experience a relaxing, self-catered escape just a short distance from the beautiful Dorset coastline.

Step inside your new lodgings and be greeted by a variety of tastefully-appointed living areas.

In the kitchen, the chosen chef will find all the appliances they'll need to rustle up a delicious, home-cooked meal that you and your loved ones can savour at the breakfast bar, or even alfresco on the outdoor table and chairs in the rear garden.

In the evening, retreat to a well-furnished sitting room, where you can enjoy a film or your favourite television series on the stylish, wall-mounted Smart TV.

When it's time for bed, refresh with a soothing shower before you finally retire for a well-earned rest in either a plush double or twin bedroom.

After you've finished your morning coffee in the back garden whilst soaking in views of the surrounding hills, be sure to head out and explore what your local area has to offer.

A walk into Preston will bring you to Appleby's SPAR, where you can refill on essentials, whilst a cold, crisp pint awaits at the Bridge Inn, which also serves traditional pub fare for when you fancy taking a break from cooking one evening.

For a day out, make the brief car trip north to the Osmington White Horse, a historical landmark carved into a hill that attracts many an eager tourist, before you head back south through Preston and onto the idyllic setting of Bowleaze Cove, a bustling swimming location that also offers visitors a chance to embark on a cliff walk or scour for ancient ruins!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
