  • "What a gem; two sandy deserted coves five minutes away, stunning views and delightful small gardens with cafe opposite."

    Weymouth a twenty minute walk and a beautiful level coastal walk to Chesil beach and Abbotsbury in the other direction. Spent an afternoon watching naval exercises in the harbour (with helicopter) and there were cruise ships coming and going daily.If you can spare the time to get here you will be well rewarded.

  • "Wow, view to die for!"

    We were lucky with the weather so had deep blue sea views and also saw sea mist roll in and disappear, not to mention the sunrises, could just sit there all day and not get bored. So relaxing. The cafe also does the best ice creams. Cottage was clean and tidy and well equipped, had everything we needed. Would just like to point out the bedroom windows need a bit of attention as very stiff to close and squeaky, (must annoy neighbour when closing them). Lovely walks along the Rodwell Trail, accessed just behind the cottage. Had a very enjoyable week, thanks to the owners for renting

  • "The Lookout is a fabulous property."

    Stunning views, nice location, and very clean and tidy. Kitchen and Bathroom were in exceptionally good condition. The sofa's did smell a little musty and in my personal opinion perhaps previous guests dog's have tinkled on the front door carpet which also held an odour. This is understandable considering how popular this accommodation is and rented out. The local cat is also using the rear garden as a giant litter tray. Loved the accommodation, loved the property and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it and also returning in the future. A big thank you to the owners for renting this superb property out and allowing others to enjoy it.

    Beautiful views, in a lovely area. T. V needs attention, as couldn't get on with all the remotes, and couldn't get it working properly, so gave up. But despite that, the place is a little gem. Gorgeous.

  • "Very nice property with all required facilities and great view of the bay within walking distance of both Weymouth and Portland."

    Only comment would be that the TV was rather confusing to use as it had the TV itself, a Manhattan box and a BT box. Some of the guidance was outdated referring to the wrong remotes and it was unclear what the BT box was for as there were no free or subscription TV channels available (that we could discern) and the internet apps were already available on the TV itself.

  • "The new improved shower was a great plus along with the balcony furniture."

    It would be worthwhile to have a lock on the back gate as we had hired bicycles (Weymouth Bike Hire( for our stay and had to use the bins to secure the gate overnight. As always the location of our holiday home proved ideal with the trail path and a short walk into Nothe Gardens which also leads into the town. We've already booked next year's holiday stay at the same location as per year's before.

    The property was clean comfortable and provided us with everything we needed. The view across the bay is stunning and we loved sitting out on the balcony. Just 1 little niggle considering the price for a week's stay we thought the provision of 1 toilet roll a bit stingy.

  • "We had a great week at the lookout and enjoyed the location and facilities provided."

    It’s situated a 20 minute walk from Weymouth harbour and a short drive from Portland. Have to say we were a little disappointed to have to clear up some dog mess left behind from a previous tenants pet in the back yard on our arrival. Also, considering one of the main features of this property is the view, I was shocked at the state of the windows in the lounge overlooking Sandsfoot castle and gardens, you could barely see out of them! Luckily I had some car windscreen wipes to hand but it took a good 30 minutes to get them up to an acceptable standard. This is just not acceptable. That said, after our initial cleaning spell, we did have a lovely week!

    We are pleased that you had a lovely week staying at Lookout but sorry about the issues with the window cleaning and mess in the back garden. The windows are cleaned every 4 weeks and it would seem that your stay was at the end of this cycle, the windows were cleaned the Tuesday after you left. It is of course difficult to keep all the windows clean at all times with the house been situated so near and almost surrounded by the sea. We believe the mess in the rear garden is in fact that of a local cat who chooses to use our garden rather than its own! We are now using an environmentally friendly cat repellent product and will continue to manually clean up if needed. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I hope we can welcome you back to Lookout at some point in the future. Property Owner

    Could benefit from a nonslip shower mat and such a pity only one loo on the top floor! This was our only disappointment We recommended our good friends Mr and Mrs Nairn to you and they have booked Sea King House at no. 84A in September. We wondered why they are paying £400- less for the same week as us in September and they have 3 bedrooms and we only have 2 and the 1 loo?

  • "This is a lovely cottage with a fantastic view."

    You can walk into Weymouth via a road and then Nothe Gardens or to the link road to Portland via the old railway line both quite quickly. There is a hidden beach and go down there and when the tide is right you can eventually get a steep path up to the Cliff path to Weymouth. However, the days 2 cars would fit was when cars weren’t so wide. You can park one car parallel to the garages. I would think this is more a family property than one for 4 adults. I stayed as a single guest.

  • "Great views over Sandsfoot to the sea."

    Comfortable sofas and beds. Limited space for 4 adults, better for couples and family with smaller children. Steep stairs to access lounge, kitchen and second set to bathroom and beds. Top to bottom: main bed creaky, second bedroom requiring shuffle past beds, dresser needs repair as draw fronts coming off; bathroom very narrow access to shower and small bath, I couldn't use either. Very loud sink! Creaky stairs which were obviously the same next door as we heard next door often. Nice mirror in bathroom. Thin walls? Heard next door frequently and could hear people and traffic outside even with windows closed. Winerack unstable. Only 2 x 2 seat sofas in lounge, no arm chairs. Dining table squashed into lounge begins one of the sofas. 4 dining chairs with expandable round table. TV freesat works ok. Bt box pretty useless as most of channels not available. Kitchen probably one of the best equipped ever. Oven overhead extractor might need attention. Great balcony overlooking gardens and sea; plastic chairs could do with cushions though. Sun trap in mornings. Narrow car port entrances.. Golf only just fitted leaving littld roomto access vehicle. Better to leave car across the two spaces leaving the path clear. Very busy road for a cul-de-sac. Lots of cars/vans and foot traffic. Popular cafe to edge of gardens with outdoor seating only being dragged out every day (yes, we could hear them). Goodish place to stay. Was it worth the money? Debatable!

Just observations. The house is in a great location with dog friendly beaches within a few minutes walk and the town about 20 minutes along the coastal path. We will definitely stay in this area again. Possibly the same house if we bring something to make the beds more comfortable !

    Thankyou so much for your valuable feedback. We are so glad you loved the exploring the local area. We are sorry you found the bed too hard for your own personal taste. These were new last year and there are no plans to replace them at the present time. The Owner is replacing the balcony doors and windows at the start of Sep.

Easy to walk into Weymouth or towards Portland, along the Rodway trail which you can join just behind the house. There is a small beach just a few minutes walk down the road. We spent a long weekend here with our two teenage children, on which the weather was not too good so it was lovely to have a great view to look out over from the living room or even on the sheltered balcony when the weather wasn't too bad. The house is very clean, tidy, comfortable and cosy and has everything you could want in it - a home from home. Would definitely stay here again.

By the second week we had given up on the dishwasher & had reverted to hand washing the dishes etc which we hadn’t really anticipated & found it to be a chore - not what we wanted on holiday! I think the machine needs a service or replacement.

Also we had one very windy night and the side entrance gate kept blowing and banging open. On inspection the latches are broken/missing andlooks like they have been for a while. This also means anyone could walk to the rear of the property.

The property

Lookout is perfectly situated to ensure you make the most of the views on your Dorset holiday Overlooking Portland Harbour, Weymouth Bay, Sandsfoot castle ruins and Green Flag awarded Sandsfoot Gardens.

This contemporary Spanish style house has everything need to unwind on holiday with friends or with a small family.

Set over a ground floor, and two upper floors Lookout can accommodate up to four guests in two bedrooms, both with sea views from the second floor. Equipped with a wooden table and bench for you to enjoy some time in the patio garden or step out to the balcony from the sitting room and admire the scenery directly to Sandsfoot castle and gardens.

Just moments away from the house giving you direct access to some of the most stunning walks is The Jurassic Coastal path.

The National Sailing Academy on the Isle of Portland, Weymouth town, beach and seaside attractions are all just a short drive away from the property.

There is a cafe at Sandsfoot Castle just across the road and within easy walking distance you will find a pub and convenience store for all your needs.

Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle are a short drive to the East if you want to explore further afield, Chesil Beach, Burton Bradstock, West Bay and Bridport are to the West all offering sights and views along the gorgeous World Heritage Jurassic coastline.

In summer take a ride with a double-decked Jurassic coaster bus which will take you through the most iconic places in Dorset from Poole to Axminster in Devon. With shallow waters and views over Portland Harbour the 'almost secret' sandy beach at the end of the road is the perfect setting to spend the day with the children and dogs playing together.

Lookout is the perfect holiday home for couples or a small family.

About the location

CASTLE COVE

Weymouth 2.1 miles; Dorchester 8.8 miles; Lyme Regis 28.5 miles.

Castle Cove is a firm favourite with locals, sitting along side the Rodwell trail area, Castle Cove Beach is usually uncrowded, and offers safe bathing from it’s gently sloping shoreline. There are two main beach areas, Castle Cove, new steps to the beach opened early in 2019, and Sandsfoot beach, both with soft golden sand and the vibe of the best kept secret. Sandsfoot castle is just two minutes’ walk from the beach where you will find castle ruins, pretty award-winning gardens and a small café, offering snacks, drinks and ice-creams. Accessed off Old Castle Road in Weymouth, this area is a real treat for those who want to be away from the buzz and bright lights of the traditional Weymouth Seafront, and yet close enough to venture there when they choose. When you are on the beach you could be forgiven for thinking you are miles from town, and yet you are only a 15-20 minute walk from the old Harbour and access to Weymouth town centre. If you want to know where the locals would recommend you spend your beach days, then Castle Cove and Sandsfoot beaches are it.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
  • Christmas
