A very comfortable and spacious property in a stunning location

4 of 5
The Stables is a lovely and comfortable property. We had 4 generations staying and there was room to spread out. The location is stunning with great walks and amazing views of Chesil beach and surrounding countryside. It is a bit off the beaten track so needed to use the car a lot.

A great and comfortable week!

5 of 5
We spent a very comfortable and enjoyable week staying at this house in early September 2017. It is in a very quiet location but with quick and easy access to both Weymouth and Dorchester. It is also very well stocked and provided us with everything we needed. The WIFI is fast and reliable. We also appreciated having two dedicated car parking spaces. Steve and Ella, the owners, were quick to respond to any queries we had and made themselves available to us if anything went wrong. Fortunately, it never did. We were inspired to visit Weymouth by reading the novel “Weymouth Sands” by John Cowper Powys and the area didn’t disappoint at all. Weymouth itself has two RSPB bird reserves and then there is Portland Bill, Chesil Beach and the Dorset Ridgeway to explore. A great and comfortable week!
