Property code: DC180

Lovingly converted Grade II listed former stables in the charming village of Upwey, perfectly situated to explore Weymouth and beyond along the stunning Jurassic Coastline.

Enjoy the convenience of a well-appointed village whilst making the most of a convenient location, perfect for exploring the coastline and countryside alike. Take a stroll into the heart of the village to find a shop, pub and a couple of eateries offering respite after a day in the great outdoors. Beyond the village, Weymouth lies just 3.5 miles away, where you can explore the sandy beach, independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Furthermore, you can visit the oceanic exhibit that is the Jurassic Skyline, the Victorian Nothe Fort and the ancient ruins of the cliffside Sandsfoot Castle, just to name a few attractions. 10 miles away is the picturesque Isle of Portland with its traditional lighthouse and stunning 16th-century castle.

Set back from the village high street and located adjacent to the owner's property, this delightful property offers a wealth of character and equine memorabilia. Step through the traditional stable door to find a double height lounge with vaulted beamed ceiling and dining area boasting many of its original qualities to create a homely space. Fire up the traditional wood burner as you sink into the comfortable sofa of an evening and truly unwind. A feature stone wall, hayloft window and flagstone floor add to the ambience of this space. The compact but well-equipped galley kitchen complete with Belfast sink, induction hob and oak worktops, sits behind the stable divider, so you can rustle up some homecooked food before enjoying it in the cosy dining area which is nestled in the corner of the living space. When the day is done, retreat upstairs to the mezzanine balcony bedroom complete with low-level double bed, beamed 'A' frame in the vaulted ceiling, oak floor and balustrade overlooking the ground floor. The bathroom, home to a shower and WC is located on the ground floor.

To the front of the cottage, you can make the most of an unenclosed shale and cobbled seating area offering shade throughout the warmer months. Whether you’re starting your day with a morning coffee as you soak up the atmosphere or ending the evening with a spot of al fresco dining, it a wonderful space to enjoy. The cottage offers off-road parking for one car.

The cottage is completely lovely with a bedroom on a mezzanine floor. It is toasty warm and cosy. The only issue is the location. It is off a fairly busy main road. It is quiet but apart from a mini market there is no where to get a meal or food within easy walking distance especially at night due to the busy road. This said there are lots of big sRead moreupermarkets within ten minutes drive so self catering is easy. It just wasn't in our plan. Hide

the cottage was quite hard to find at first because it is set behind the owners house and parking could be difficult because the road was very busy. Inside was clean and comfortable, the log fire was very nice on a cold night and the welcome basket was great.

Lovely cottage with every utility and amenity available. Warm welcome was given by the owner and the welcome gifts with fresh flowers. Fantastic location for public transport, car hire a walks along secluded country lanes to lovely tea rooms and pubs. The whole set up really made our holiday special and have already discussed booking for next year!

The cottage was lovely - really nicely furnished with everything we needed. It was wonderfully cosy to come back to after a day of walking and is ideally located for the Jurassic Coast. It is small, but ideal for a couple.

The old stable was a lovely cottage, very cosy and welcoming. The owner came to check all was ok once we had settled in which was welcomed. Louise also passed on some useful local information. The cottage was well furnished and had all that you needed. Overall, would definitely recommend to others.

Conveniently located and nice and modern. A sunny sitting out area would be a nice addition. The first floor could be better organised perhaps. There was so little room that we had to keep our cases in the car. Not enough hangers.
