  • "My friend and I really enjoyed our stay, approx 1 mile from the harbour area of Weymouth."

    Very quiet, cottage located in the countryside, away from main road down a short drive. Cottage well laid out with large combined kitchen, diner, lounge. Bathroom small, however ok. Good base to explore the coastal areas of Dorset. Lots to things to see and do in the area, public transport limited, car is very useful.

  • "Lovely little cottage, perfect for a small family."

    It had everything we needed and is well suited for access to Weymouth and the Dorset coast. Views are absolutely stunning and it is situated in a quiet location.

  • "The cottage is clean and has pretty much everything you need, although a mirror near a decent light source and plug socket for a hairdryer would be helpful."

    It is definitely NOT accessible, the slope down the drive is short but steep and there are steps up to the cottage and two steps inside. It is a quiet area with pretty good views. We did get a surprise when someone climbed over the fence right outside the patio doors, it turned out to be the owner who then came back and banged on the doors to apologise when he saw our car and realised we were in! I did have a problem with the parking, there is a small parking space allotted to the cottage - fine if you don't need to open the doors wide. In the listing you are asked to park considerately because the drive is shared with the owner who lives next door. Unfortunately the owner and his family had between 3 and 4 cars parked without much thought for us to get our car in and out. There is an area with a very low wall in the drive, very hard to see in poor light, hence a scratch on my front bumper from trying to get out of the drive.

  • "The cottage is in an excellent location with superb views, very warm, clean, comfortable and well equipped and the owners next door were very helpful but unobtrusive."

    A great base from which to explore Dorset and we would not hesitate to recommend it. The service from Sykes (who we'd never used before) was very professional and efficient - easy to do things online but equally helpful when speaking to a real person on the phone. Will use them again.

  • "Lovely cottage and good position."

    We had a great week travelling around the area and this was a good base. Just a little disappointed that the cushions on the dining chairs were pretty dirty and considering this was near the start of the season assume they hadn’t been cleaned from last year. Everything else was very good though.

  • "Lovely apartment and very clean."

    Some visitors may find the slope alongside the property difficulty to walk as the car parking is at the top of the slop and the door to the property is at the bottom.

  • "Very good cottage"

  • "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) 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


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.
