The property

Kingeswic Cottage combines Georgian cottage charm with modern comforts and a delightful garden.

Built in circa 1780, Kingeswic Cottage sits on the old high street of Wyke Regis, between Weymouth town and the isle of Portland.

Whether you are looking for an off-season staycation exploring the wild beauty the Dorset coast has to offer or a high season fun-filled beach holiday, Kingeswic Cottage can be your peaceful and relaxing base.

Perhaps you fancy a bit of fossil hunting at Pirates Cove on the Fleet, just a 10-minute walk from the cottage, or riding your bike along the Rodwell Trail with its stunning sea views, or exploring the South West Coastal path, also 10 minutes away.

Give paddle boarding a go at Ferrybridge or sailing at Weymouth Sailing Academy.

Several award-winning restaurants can be found nearby, including The Crab House Café, Billy Winters and Taste Café at Chesil Beach.

This charming, terraced cottage hosts up to five guests, making it an excellent choice for a coastal retreat all year round.

When you step into the sitting room, two leather sofas invite you to kick back and relax in front of the fire or catch up on your favourite Netflix TV shows.

The stylish and compact kitchen diner has all of the appliances you could need, including a range cooker, a dishwasher and a washer/dryer.

Enjoy a coffee at the dining table inside or step outside to the enclosed garden and dine alfresco, surrounded by greenery and birdsong.

Steep cottage stairs lead up to the first floor where you can find the master double bedroom and the spacious family bathroom.

Another flight of stairs brings you into the family room, with both a double and a day bed for your family and friends.

Right on your doorstep, you will find a wealth of wonderful amenities and attractions catering to all ages and tastes.

Spend your days lazing on the golden sands of Weymouth beach, with opportunities for sports on the water too, or set out on a fishing trip in the harbour! The rugged Isle of Portland and the splendour of Chesil Beach host even more tempting eateries, as well as several points of historic interest such as the Portland Museum, Rufus Castle, the Circle Of Stones and many more.

There are also a number of secluded beaches this way.

Weymouth also boasts a wealth of family attractions: the SEA LIFE Centre, the landscaped Bennetts Water Gardens, the sculptured Sandworld, and Sandsfoot Castle are just a few.

Not to mention the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which provides a scenic experience well-worth exploring with plenty of picturesque picnic spots and walking routes for all abilities.

If you would like to venture further afield Kingeswic Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring Thomas Hardy’s Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Lulworth and Bridport and beyond.

It is a peaceful haven which puts you right at the heart of South Dorset.
