  • "My son and I found the property very good once inside the only draw back for me ..."

    My son and I found the property very good once inside the only draw back for me where the steep steps down to reach the entrance to the front door, I loved the property but unfortunately because I am not very mobile I found it very difficult and was nervous I might fall down the steps for our next holiday it will have to be somewhere that the access is on the level, but otherwise I loved the property and the view so I am very disappointed that my next stay in Weymouth won't be at the Seaview

  • "Our only concern is the photo of the property is misleading."

    Need to arrow the exact property booked as I thought we were in another unit with the bigger outside terrace.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that the location details are not quite clear enough and I completely agree that these three holiday properties all need an arrow to distinguish one from another. Seaview is the 2nd in from the road. I have tried to clarify this in the property description and the photos do show the view from the lounge. I will request again that an arrow is added as I understand that, in this instance, it is easy to muddle the three similar properties and I fully agree that an arrow would clarify this is a simple way.

  • "We had a lovely stay thank you."

    No problems encountered at all, we had everything we needed and the property was clean and well organised.

    Thanks you for your feedback. I'm glad you found everything you needed to enjoy your stay at Seaview. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous little cottage right on the sea front at Preston, a small village approximately 2 miles from the centre of Weymouth."

    We had everything we needed in this recently renovated and clean cottage.

  • "Misleading position of Holiday home overlooking another home, not such a good view as your paper work suggest."

    Cleaning not great in holiday home, Patio Door had Dog marks on them, toilet brush needs to be replaced, dripping tap over kitchen sink, heating only came on some times. Patio door stiff to open, oil applied.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. I can only apologise that one of the photos shows a misleading location, as does the drop pin on the linked map: all the comments have already been reported and Sykes will be addressing these issues. For clarity, the property is the 2nd in the row of 8 mixed residential and holiday cottages. The photo from the lounge indicates the sea view is to the left of the visible cottage. There are very pleasant, and quite extensive sea views from the main bedroom and lounge windows as well as from the patio. There is a new fence dividing the first two properties, and this photo will be updated soon. The property has had some good reports on cleanliness and hopefully this was just a blip at a very busy time. Property Owner

  • "Very clean accomodation and I was very impressed with the standard of facilities."

    However, there was only comfortable seating for 3 people and the cottage is advertised as sleeps 4. I am however highly likely to re visit at a future date.

  • "The picture used to show the cottage is very ambiguous."

    The implication is that it is one of the two in the centre of the picture, not the second from the left. From a purely personal view the bed was too soft. However everything else, including the weather meant that we had a very enjoyable stay.

  • "The accommodation was lovely couldn't fault it."

    Really close to the beach. Gorgeous having breakfast on the beach most mornings. Lovely walks and scenery close by. Can't wait to go again.

  • "These cottages are not suitable for elderly or disabled persons, to many steps and ramps."

    Also patrons should be told that the parking space is on a higher level than the cottage. Beach inaccessible due to the steep incline from walk way to sea.

The property

Tucked towards the corner of a select development in Preston / Weymouth, Seaview is a few minutes’ walk from the beach and enjoys a pleasant sea view, Seaview is a particularly good choice for a couple but can accommodate a small family up to 4 people along with one small, well-behaved dog, it is a well-equipped and cosy little holiday cottage, laid out over 2 floors. There are two bedrooms, each on a separate floor with access to its own shower or bathroom.

The downstairs, twin bedded room is served by the adjacent shower room (with full size handbasin and WC) located just off the hall, upstairs there is a generous ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom with a double bed, this bedroom enjoys far-reaching sea views towards Portland, the combined kitchen and lounge area is well equipped and nicely suited to preparing meals whilst socialising. From the lounge area you can enjoy the sea view and there is a little dining corner with drop-leaf table and stowaway chairs, step outside via the patio doors and you will find a pleasant, outside seating area, (not enclosed) with picnic bench for outdoor dining, the patio enjoys a sea view and is a sunny spot, especially for breakfast and evening drinks, it is tucked away a little from the beach car park and sits towards the corner of the development, you can relax, soak up the sun and enjoy views of the Jurassic coast and the Isle of Portland, on a windy day you can watch the acrobatics of the kite surfers on the beach, Portland is famous for its prized Portland stone and also for its National Sailing Academy so it is popular with water sports enthusiasts. Seaview is located by the pebbly Overcombe Beach and there are several water-based activities to be enjoyed here, water sports equipment like wetsuits, kayaks and paddleboards may be hired at the little beachside shop on the Oasis carpark in high season, Bowleaze Cove, a few minutes’ walk across the beach also offers a wide range of activities along with cafés and beachside restaurant, if you’re looking for the traditional, seaside break for children with buckets and spades, there are the vast, soft, sandy stretches of Weymouth beach with its shallow waters just a few minutes’ drive away, you can also walk there along the esplanade. There are plenty of interesting activities nearby, along with countryside walks and green open spaces to be enjoyed right from your doorstep, you can join the South-West coast path towards Ringstead Bay, Osmington Mills and beyond and admire the magnificent views especially back over Weymouth Bay and Portland, alternatively, you could head inland to discover the rolling Dorset countryside of Thomas Hardy, visit gardens like Kingston Maurwood or Abbotsbury (with its Swannery) or just explore the quaint villages, like Sutton Poyntz with its excellent country pub. For dining out from Seaview there are several, relaxed venues in stunning locations that can be reached on foot within a few minutes, up the hill from Seaview there is The Harvester pub, The Spyglass which is open normal pub hours, there is the Lookout Café at the top of Furzy Cliff and of course the Oasis beachfront café is also just a stone’s throw from the property, a wider selection of restaurants including fish specialties can be found in the town and around the harbour area, it is a flat 2 mile walk along the esplanade into the town and a little further for the harbour. You can spend a pleasant hour or so following the curve of the bay at the sea’s edge with the waves lapping at your toes all the way round, then maybe take a rest and relax with refreshments at one of the harbourside cafés or restaurants or maybe take a boat ride too.

About the location


Bowleaze sits behind Bowleaze Cove and right at the end of Weymouth’s long 3-mile beach front perched on the edge of Preston. Known for its fascinating geology and picturesque location on the Jurassic Coast, this area of Weymouth offers beautiful views back towards Weymouth and Portland, whilst only being a short distance from the main beach and town centre. There are many places to eat and you can join the south west coast path towards Osmington Mills, Ringstead and beyond from here. Predominantly a residential area, it’s perfect those who want to escape to the seaside but retain the tranquillity of a residential area.
