  • "We were very disappointed with this property as it was misleading interpretation of the property."

    The garden was not secluded as a low fence and when you were eating you could see into the kitchen as no blinds in kitchen area. The TV was not working in one of the rooms. There was no storage to put any clothes in small bedroom. All night we had to listen to cars racing up and down. The house is situated in the middle of a council estate. The heating was way too high and my son suffers from asthma. We couldn’t turn it down. We tried calling a number but no answer. The step to the front door was way too high. Misleading information of what is around the area. Thermostat on one of the radiator in bedroom does not work.

    Hello there, we really are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay at Fisherman’s Rest and will take on board the constructive points where we can thank you. Just to point out as well, we didn’t receive a call (or a message) otherwise we would have come round to help straight away. To respond to a few of your points: * The kitchen window has a blind but not on the bifold doors which would not be practical (see photos) * I’m sorry the TV wasn’t working for you, this is a brand new TV in the bedroom and a new 65” OLED TV in the sitting room, we will review as this is easily rectified * There is no storage in the small bedroom correct, we are looking to maximise the space but there is plenty of storage in the other 2 bedrooms. * Sorry if there were cars making noises, I can only put this down to it being New Year’s Eve. The house is in a residential area near Weymouth so this is a factor to consider. * Heating too high: sorry we like to ensure it is comfortable for our guests, we haven’t had this complaint before but there are 2 thermostats that control the temperature and underfloor heating in the kitchen and we left instructions in the property. * Step to the property is too high: i’m sorry but there isn’t much I can do about this, there is a photo of the front of the house and the steps for people to see * Misleading information about the area: not sure what is inaccurate here sorry * Thermostat on a radiator is broken - thanks for letting us know we will get that rectified this week Really saddened that you didn’t have a good stay and I hope our response puts some of these points into context. Best wishes, Rob and Michelle Property Owner

    Would love to return in the summer to enjoy the patio and bi-fold doors. The kitchen was fully equipped for our Christmas dinner meal, double ovens an absolute godsend. We appreciated the extra time it must have taken to put up the Christmas tree and decorations/lights. Thank you.

    thank you so much for your kind words Kevin, really pleased you enjoyed Fisherman's Rest and had a good stay. The bi-fold doors are very pleasant when the weather warms up, hopefully you can come back some time. Best wishes, Rob and Michelle Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house with everything you need for a perfect holiday, lovely and clean, great furnishings and very comfortable beds."

    I would point out ( as we booked this property as it said there was an enclosed garden), that the one side of the garden which is hedged, does need to be fixed as our dog nearly escaped, as there are various holes along the hedge at ground level, which would take dogs out of the garden, so we could not leave our dog in the garden on her own, which was a shame. The house is perfectly situated for visiting towns and local beaches, in fact if you cross the road, go straight ahead and follow small path to beach, but take right hand path where the path forks, you will find a gorgeous little beach, away from the crowds. Great holiday, beautiful house.

    Hi Angela, thanks for the feedback especially in relation to the hedge. We have put chicken wire under the hedge, staked it and attached it to the hedge to cover all gaps all the way across, and there is the wooden edging in front of that as well so it is fully secure now. Appreciate you letting us know and so pleased you had a nice stay. Thanks, Rob and Michelle Property Owner

    Beautifully decorated and furnished. It was lovely to find store cupboard essentials in the kitchen so we only needed to buy the food we wanted to cook. The bedrooms were lovely and the beds were so comfortable. Felt spoilt rotten and would stay again.

  • "Wow, wow, wow."

    Our first trip to Dorset and this property made it one to remember and one we'll definitely return to. Super comfortable, everything we needed for a great stay, and with absolutely stunning views across to Portland. I'm a keen runner and the 10km run from the property, down the Rodwell Trail (which is opposite the house), along the Spit Road at Chesil Beach and up through the quarry along the cliff tops to Portland Bill was breath taking in more ways than one. We managed to get three cars on the drive no problem. The owner was super helpful with any questions we had. The location of the house makes it great for quick and easy walks along the Rodwell Trail to Sandsfoot Castle and Weymouth.

    Hi Michele and Mark, thanks so much for the feedback we are so happy you enjoyed your stay and the views along the Rodwell trail for your runs. We do hope you come back again some day! All the best, Rob and Michelle Property Owner

  • "The fisherman was beautifully decorated and comfortable, I couldn't fault it bar a couple of minor issues : We didnt find the parasol umbrella for us to sit outside in the garden, had I had access to the shed in which I assume the mower may have been kept , I would have mowed the lawn."

    The grass was quite long -for dog owners who will understand this long grass is not so good for cleaning up when poochie has an icky tum due to the change in water ;-) and the garden is not entirely enclosed. the left hand side of the garden doesnt not have a fence, only shrubs. For that reason we had to be outside with our pooch to keep an eye on her, whenever she was in the garden. So we couldnt have the bifolding doors open. There have been previous comments about lowering the curb to drive on to the small driveway, I would reiterate the same need too. Other than that, the weather was lovely for the most part, the surrounding area was nice and the people were nice and friendly too. The interior of the house is a dream, just as I would like to have my home. The beds were comfortable, plenty of wardrobe space, views of the sea from every room of the house, the shower was perfect. The kitchen was perfect, a dream kitchen. The house was so nice itself that just staying in was relaxing enough, we didn't feel too compelled to need to go out but for doing bits of shopping. ( we forgot a bag of dog food, which was annoying but it doesnt matter leave it for the next pooch visitor ;-) ) We would certainly be returning when we get the chance , hopefully next year.

    Hi Aniece, thanks very much for the feedback, so pleased you liked the house and surroundings. Fully taking on board your comments. About the grass - we had just found a new gardener and we were 'in between gardeners' at the time, i'm so sorry as we are dog owners too and understand your point completely. Regarding the hedge, noted again. I had put in a small picket fence under the hedge to deter smaller dogs from going under but clearly this isn't enough so we will look into solutions again. Our Bernese Mountain Dog is 65 kg so wasn't ideal to test it out with :) Regarding the kerb, i've made enquiries with the council about this so hopefully it will be sorted should you hopefully visit again. Finally, if you do visit again please just send us a message if there is anything wrong as we will always do everything we can to ensure you stay is perfect. Many thanks, Rob and Michelle ps oh yes and the parasol is in the cupboard under the stairs. Property Owner

    Parking is really for one car (picture doesn’t portray that) so if your expecting any friends to join you, you might have to review your parking options unless you have two small cars but other than that everything was excellent.

    Thank you for your feedback Felicity, delighted you had a good stay. You're right that whilst 2 cars can go end to end on the driveway, it can be a little tight. To that end we are actually in the process of extending the driveway by a couple of metres over the coming weeks so this won't be an issue should you, hopefully, come to stay in the future.

The property

Situated in the centre of Wyke Regis, a shoreline village in Dorset, is this fabulous three-bedroom holiday home, Fisherman's Rest.

Just a short stone's throw away from local shops, restaurants, attractions, and beaches, whilst contemporarily renovated throughout, Fisherman's Rest is the perfect base for a family, looking to explore Weymouth; six guests are welcome, along with one well-behaved dog.

Parking up on the private driveway, enter the spacious sitting room, stylishly finished with a large corner sofa, wall-mounted TV, and plush bean bags, displaying sea glimpses of the nearby shore.

Venturing into the open-plan kitchen/diner, be wowed by its opulent finish, boasting a centre island with breakfast bar, bi-fold doors, state-of-the-art appliances, and a contemporary dining table; you'll most definitely use this as your social hub, to cook, dine and relax, while next door, you'll find a utility and cloakroom to ease your stay.

Stepping through the bifold doors, expand your living space by relaxing upon the patio, offering a secluded and enclosed outdoor space for the whole family to enjoy; alfresco dining will be perfect throughout the summer months.

Once you're ready for some rest, be welcomed by three bedrooms, all bright and airy, including two super-king-size rooms, one of which boasts a zip/link feature, along with a single room with a trundle, all offering flexible sleeping arrangements; breath-taking views of Portland, the turquoise sea and Chesil beach are expected from each bedroom.

The property is completed with a chic bathroom, with a free-standing bath, duck egg tiles, and a walk-in shower with a rainfall fixture, ideal for a morning refresh before your adventures.

Wyke Regis itself houses an array of bistros, cafes, shops, and pubs to enjoy throughout your self-catering stay, including lunches at Fresh Bites, to evening meals at The Fat Badger.

The Rodwell Trail is just 25 metres from your doorstep, which is a wildlife corridor offering sea views for cycling or walking, as well as easy access to the Crab House café, Billy Winters bar & grill, and the ruins of Sandsfoot Castle.

Located across the coast, head to Chesil Beach for a sandy stroll, tour Portland Castle for a taste of history, or head to SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth for an immersive, family-friendly experience.

Weymouth Pavilion is also closely situated, hosting regular events and shows, whilst Nothe Fort offers panoramic views of the port, or maybe discover Sandworld Weymouth for an artistic activity.

Offering something for everyone, Dorset Museum, displaying 250 million years of Dorset history, Maiden Castle, and RSPB Radipole Lake, where you can spot some of the local wildlife, are all must-see attractions.

About the location

WYKE REGIS

Weymouth 2 miles; Dorchester 9 miles.

Wyke Regis is a village on the south western side of Weymouth that sits on the northern edges of Portland Harbour and reaches as far as the back of Chesil beach and The Fleet, just two miles from the centre of Weymouth. There are local shops, cafés and restaurants including the famous Crab House café, with it’s own oyster beds on the doorstep. The National Sailing School, an Olympic legacy, offers a wide variety of water sports and is just two miles away on the edge of Portland Harbour. The Fleet Lagoon that runs between Wyke Regis and Chesil beach is an important area for wildlife and there are many species of birds to be seen in the area, whilst Chesil beach is also a renowned spot for fishing. The Fleet is probably most famous for being the testing ground for Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb, immortalised in the film the Dam Busters. Wyke Regis is the perfect location from which to explore many of Dorset’s most iconic locations on the Jurassic Coast.
