    “The place was great in its comfort and general outlook.”

    What let it down was the failure to mention the gradient of the slope to get to it. Although the picture shows 'a' gradient, it could be easily confused, as we were, into an expectation that it was a road going past. The car has to be parked at the top of this gradient as the front door is at the bottom of it. We feel that the description should include, very very clearly, that not only wheelchairs would have a problem (and there are steps to get to front door as well so not disabled friendly) ...

We feel that the description should include, very very clearly, that not only wheelchairs would have a problem (and there are steps to get to front door as well so not disabled friendly) but anyone with a slight mobility problem (you may sense that I have this!) so in my case I had to descend the slope in a sideways motion very very slowly. This interior was great and our short chats with the owner next door (we had a problem with the front door) were very pleasant.

The property

Markham Cottage sits in a pleasant position with uninterrupted views over to Chesil Beach and Weymouth Bay, situated next door to the owner’s property.

This modern renovated cottage is all on one level, just with a couple of steps into the front door and a couple of steps in the bedroom/bathroom area.

The spacious living kitchen dining area is open plan and, curl up with a good book and relax.

The perfectly placed terrace means you can sit back and enjoy the view whilst absorbing the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside. Being only a few minutes' drive from the heart of Weymouth, and its golden sandy beach, where all the restaurants, shops and amenities you may desire are situated.

There are beautiful scenic walks along the promenade, where the tasty fish and chips are to be eaten on the harbour side and local ice creams to be sampled.

Markham Cottage is positioned between Weymouth and Wyke Regis, which provides easy access to Chesil Beach, Portland, and surrounding Dorset attractions.

West Bay, Abbotsbury and Lulworth Cove all within an easy 30-minute drive and offering spectacular picture postcard scenery along the way.

Just a pretty perfect cottage for a couple’s romantic retreat or a couple of friends to come and enjoy a Dorset holiday.

About the location

WYKE REGIS

Weymouth 2 miles; Dorchester 9 miles.

Wyke Regis is 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. 2 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 2 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. 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.
