    “We had a great holiday in a lovely cottage ,in a great area to explore ,excellent pub and food on hand.”

    one problem we had it took us half an hour to get into the property, and after a long journey we were not amused .other people had had the same problem with the key.

The property

A characterful terraced cottage wonderfully located in the picture-postcard village of Upwey on the fringes of the magnificent Dorset AONB.

There is no better place to get away from it all; bring your family and your furry friend along to Sunnyside Cottage and indulge in these heavenly surroundings.

Step into the property and be enticed by the wonderful gas-effect woodburner in the living room, sit here and watch a family favourite film after an exhausting day of wandering through the seemingly-endless countryside on your doorstep.

Enjoy family meals together in the warm, charming dining room, with its stunning feature fireplace that adds to the homely ambience.

The kitchen boasts fabulous duck egg blue units and all of the appliances you could ever need during your stay.

At the end of a tiring day of exploration, head upstairs where the three delightful, cosy bedrooms are situated and be sure to enjoy that much-needed rest ahead of tomorrow's activities.

Make good use of the lovingly decorated shower room and get ready for a night of live music and real ale in the nearby Royal Standard gastropub or the Ship Inn, both pubs are dog-friendly too.

Wake yourself up with a morning cup of coffee in your private gravelled garden with elegant seating for all, or pop into the tea room at Upwey Wishing Well where you can enjoy a delicious cream tea.

The area surrounding Sunnyside Cottage provides something to suit every taste, from the multiple scenic walks and cycle trails across the Dorset AONB to the magnificent market town of Dorchester, with its selection of fascinating museums.

For a fun-filled day out, head to Weymouth, just a short drive away, with its series of high-quality restaurants and cafés accompanied by a glorious beach and the majestic Nothe Fort Museum.

Activities and entertainment will never be in short supply while staying at this delightful cottage in its advantageous location.

About the location


Dorchester 5 miles; Weymouth 4 miles.

The picturesque village of Upwey lies just four miles north of Weymouth, nestling beneath the Dorset Ridgeway, and takes its name from the shallow chalk stream, the River Wey, which bubbles up here from an underground spring. Upwey is well-known for its Wishing Well, where George III once sought the benefits of the natural spring water. It is now a delightful tea room, serving lunches and traditional cream teas. There are a number of footpaths leading directly from the village to miles of unspoilt countryside, and close by is the market town of Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s ’Casterbridge’. An easy drive or bus ride takes you to the popular seaside resort of Weymouth offering visitors glorious golden sandy beaches, excellent watersports facilities and a bustling harbour. An attractive village location and an ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
