    “We were very disappointed with the twin beds ( divan only had 3 wheels the other was an iron bedstead both with very poor and uncomfortable mattresses), both need replacing, also the kettle was rank and totally unusable we had to go and buy one to use, only one key to back door and that was in key safe, all that aside it is a nice house but requires some TLC.”

    we would like to go back but only if are comments have been taken up.

The property

An attractive semi-detached family home situated in a residential road, within the friendly community of Preston, only a mile from the family-friendly seaside resort of Weymouth on Dorset's picturesque Jurassic Coast.

This lovely house is furnished to a good standard and equipped with all you need to make this a super self-catering holiday experience.

The bright kitchen with dining area opens out into a sunny conservatory, a lovely place to socialise whilst the cook of your group conjures up some tasty treats.

Relax in the cosy sitting room after a busy day exploring the area and planning your activities for the days ahead.

From the sitting room there are stairs which lead to the three comfortable bedrooms as well as a family bathroom.

Outside, there is a small garden to enjoy, which has a patio and furniture for you to relax with a refreshing drink.

You can either walk or drive down to the nearest beach, or why not leave your car at home and take the regular bus service down to Weymouth itself, where you can indulge in all kinds of watersports and fishing?

Further afield, there is rugged Portland to explore, or enjoy a visit to the county town of Dorchester, beloved of Thomas Hardy.

There is so much to see and do within an easy drive of this pleasant holiday home.
