  • "Beautiful property, very comfortable and clean."

    I agree with previous comments about the parking. I am aware there is not much that can be done about it bit it could be an issue for some holiday makers. Also I agree that curtains would be nice. I am aware they don't really fit with the design aesthetic but should be an option for privacy. A few more kitchen items would be nice, a teapot and some eggcups for example, but overall a lovely property, thoughtfully converted, and we had a lovely stay.

  • "Firstly the parking was an issue as there wasn't a guaranteed space."

    On some occasions we had to park on another street as there were no spaces which wasn't clear on the listing. We also feel that the windows in the lounge and kitchen could benefit from having curtains installed as there was a lot of dog walkers passing by in the cemetery late at night which we felt a bit uncomfortable with as they could see us in the lounge and kitchen. The house itself was very clean however there were some spots that hadn't been dusted or cleaned e.g. under the sofas, radiators and behind the headboards to the beds. We had some issues with the broadband on some occasions but this wasn't a major issue as we just played one of the board games provided. Some things lacking in the kitchen such as oven dishes but again not a major issue but would have been nice to be able to cook something on some occasions. On our last day it was a little bit cold in the evening as it was windy and raining but we couldn't get the heating to come on even though we followed the guide provided. Again not a major issue as it was summer but it would have been nice to have a little extra warmth in the evening.

  • "The only things we felt would improve our stay was the bed, a king size bed would have been more comfortable and a fan as it was extremely hot."

  • "Cottage lovely but bathroom could do with updating and outside areas needed tidying up and a little TLC would make such a difference - overall it is very good and we had a lovely holiday."

  • "Cottage was extremely comfy with everything you needed for the stay."

    The bed in master bedroom was probably the most comfortable I have slept in apart from my own! If I can have 1 small criticism that is that it's fairly tricky to use the shower attachment above the bath as access is awkward. We got round it but maybe relocating the chest of drawers in the bathroom would help.

    A very good stay if booking again would want to know property facilities in more detail and not just a general list of facilities of all your properties

  • "A really memorable location for a holiday in a cleverly converted chapel"

  • "The overall stay was good, and the place perfectly clean and tidy, and beds were comfortable and the place warm but just a couple of points."

    The kitchen lacks some basic items such as oven gloves, a measuring jug and chopping board. There was a glass countertop but it's quite difficult to work with. Also this is probably personal preference but the window shutters upstairs don't block out light very well. The front bedroom is right in front of a street light so this made sleeping a little difficult.

  • "Property was lovely and warm which was very welcoming after a long car journey."

    It was very clean and had everything you could wish to make it a little home from home. The location is very good for the town centre and beach. I loved all the old chapel features it added something very special to the property. Would definately recommend this property to other people and would stay here again if ever in Weymouth.

  • "The bed in the smaller room was soft and a bit small considering the room could accommodate a larger bed."

    Also, the blinds weren’t totally effective at blocking out the street lights, so I’d recommend curtains or blackout blinds. However this is just minor feedback, the property was very clean and comfortable, in very good condition, and we are very happy with our stay.

The property

Highland Chapel is a delightful terraced house based in the heart of Weymouth and has been fully renovated to include a modern look whilst keeping plenty of the character that comes with the original arched chapel windows and stone work.

This unique property is situated on the edge of a beautiful Victorian cemetery, and you will even find an old fountain within the outside wall.

Coming through the front door brings you to the spacious hallway, into the open-plan living area that features three superb stone arched windows, and through to the fully equipped kitchen and dining area, perfect for spending time together while making the evening meal.

The seating area comprises of a set of plush velvet sofas which will be perfect for those tired evenings relaxing in front of the TV, after a long day at the beach.

Moving up onto the first floor you will find two large double bedrooms; the master bedroom offers a Juliet balcony with double doors, giving views of the cemetery, while the second bedroom has a delightful bay window.

This property benefits from having a family bathroom on the first floor including a shower over bath and a skylight, as well as a cloakroom/utility room on the ground floor which is host to a WC, sink, and washing machine.

The double doors that lead out of the sitting area, take you onto a sunny terrace, which is perfect for relaxing with a drink in the evening sun.

Located just one mile from Weymouth's famous Georgian sea front and award-winning beach, you will be able to enjoy fish and chips on the sea front with ease, or maybe take a wander around the old harbour with an ice cream.

The town centre has all of your high-street favourites as well as plenty of local independent shops, so you can discover the talents and crafts of the local people.

Venture out to Lulworth Cove and see the incredible Jurassic Coastline from the water, by going on a Jurassic Kayak Tour, experiencing the coast from a unique perspective and gaining knowledge of the amazing marine life.

For something totally different, travel 15 miles north, and visit Monkey World - which sees apes rehabilitated into natural living groups again after suffering abuse or neglect through smuggling of primates - and go on the journey around the centre and learn about the stories behind the primates' rescues, and maybe you'll catch some cheeky monkey business too!

Highland Chapel is a striking property full of character that will only enhance your enjoyment of the lovely location of Weymouth.
