  • "Fabulous cottage in Wyke Regis."

    Kingeswic cottage is very comfortable clean and has everything you need. The hot tub was great especially after long walks. We had a super welcome pack waiting for us when we arrived, which was a lovely surprise. The only downside was the parking. Often we had to park several minutes away from the property but this wasn’t a problem.

    We're delighted you were so happy at Kingeswic Cottage, Claudine. Thank you for your kind words. You are welcome back any time, Anna Property Owner

  • "Had a fantastic stay at Kingsewic cottage."

    A historic cottage in a historic town. Only a short walk from amazing views of Portland and Chesil Beach and a short drive into Weymouth.The cottage has all modern amenities, was clean and had a lovely hot tub for relaxing evenings. Will be looking at booking another stay in the future.

    We're delighted you had a fantastic stay Amanda and that you found the hot tub relaxing. We look forward to seeing you at Kingeswic Cottage again soon, Anna Property Owner

  • "What can I say."

    It is a fantastic cottage, very clean, everything and more than you could ever need. Felt like home from home. The hot tub was used everyday, was like having a good massage after a long day site seeing. Parking was ok (up the hill opposite). Loved the well established garden and the seagulls kept us company. My dog settled in well, plenty of places to roam and investigate. To top it off was the lovely welcome hamper and milk in the fridge, also not forgetting the the hot tub salts. Highly appreciated. I would return regularly and will be recommending Kingswic Cottage to my family and close friends.

    We're delighted you had a fantastic holiday Bernadine and that you made the most of the hot tub! We look forward to welcoming you again soon, Anna Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    The welcome hamper was very inviting. The beds were comfortable and the hot tub was much enjoyed. We had a lovely holiday. However, there was a definite doggie smell in the living room, which did diminish as the week progressed with proper ventilation. Prior to hoovering the the living room carpet, to try to get rid of the smell, "the Hetty" needed emptying. The carpet under the rug was covered in what looked like long black doghair. The two living room throw spent the week in a plastic bag as they were malodorous. This failure to clean up after dogs could have had dire consequences for anyone with an allergy to dog fur.

    Thank you for your comments Olive . I'm glad you enjoyed your stay but sorry you had some concerns. We will address the points you raise today, Anna Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage & lovely few days away The only thing we found is that the fencing of the garden at the bottom isn’t very secure for dogs."

    Also no baby gate to stairs to stop dogs going upstairs which wasn’t a problem for us as ours know not to but I think it would be helpful. Loved it. Thankyou so much

  • "Firstly thank you for providing all accurate information."

    One thing I think that would benefit your future clients is if people realise how close the proximity to the beach really is! It's brilliant, it's just straight up the hill around the corner and down the lane. I couldn't really tell how close even on Google maps and I couldn't understand what East Fleet and West Fleet was until we got to the beach and could understand that Chesil was directly across the stretch of water. Our pup absolutely enjoyed it all as much as we did. We brought his crate with us so he could sleep in it at night as he normally does. The garden was a fabulous bonus, I can't tell you how many properties we looked at that didn't have a stretch of garden or grass. Your cottage ticked everything we needed and the garden was an essential. The bed was super comfy, bathroom was spot on. We didn't intend on staying in for dinners and took some of your recommendations for eating out with the dog being allowed too. Thank you and we would love to return. Kind Regards Marie Rich and Pup Motley

    Thank you for your kind feedback Marie. I'm glad you and Motley were pleased at how close Kingeswic Cottage is to the beach! See you again soon, Anna Property Owner

  • "Lovely cozy house, we felt so comfortable during our week here, everything you might need has been thought of, garden is an added bonus and our children enjoyed it even though it was mostly chilly during our stay!"

    Coffee machine and treats on arrival lovely too :) We walked along the Rodwell trail to Weymouth, my only comment is on Weymouth itself - there is a lot of traffic and busy roads. We enjoyed the more scenic walk the other side to Billy Winters but the children really liked the sandy beach at Weymouth. BTW back door and bathroom tap a bit stiff!

    Thank you for your feedback Lisa, most helpful. I'm glad you found Kingeswic cosy and comfortable and that you enjoyed the garden. We hope to see you again, Anna Property Owner
