                                                      Great sea front views, easy access to all of Weymouth and lovely hosts.

                                                      On arrival we were helped with our luggage from our vehicle to the flat. Our hosts were great, very friendly and helpful. The flat itself was very pleasing, spacious, nicely decorated, clean and tidy. The view out of the bay windows in the lounge was great, spent many an hour watching the world go by. The hosts cafe on the ground floor is very handy when you don't feel like preparing your own food. All in all a lovely place to stay and we felt completely at home.

                                                      Upwey House - Elegance and Tranquility Personified

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      Upwey House is truly a gem and sparkles in so many ways. Our stay there was a three generation family get-together with participants ranging from a two year old to the near eighties. The house and grounds have so much to offer to all ages that there was never a dull moment. As an added bonus, there were sparrowhawks nesting just tens of metres in front of the house! The children thought they were in Wonderland both inside the house and in the grounds (the forest, the stream, the fields, plus the football pitch). When the sheep arrived, it was even better but they never managed to teach them English! The parents also thought they were in Wonderland in the kitchen which offers everything the budding chef could hope for! All the rooms are consistent with "tasteful charm", giving a tangible feeling of tranquillity and calm. Everything is to a high quality throughout. Its elevated location provides extensive views over the nearby countryside, virtually to the sea. It also enjoys a very private position, adding to its peacefulness. If our experience is anything to go by, the owners pay especial attention to each of their guests to ensure that their stay is both comfortable and memorable. We very much appreciated what they did for us. The children were also well provided for with several new toys and games. (The playroom is anyway very well equipped and the various things we had brought with us for "rainy days" were totally redundant). Consistent with this, the owners are exceptionally responsive, we usually heard back from them within a few hours at most. Likewise, the housekeeper was similarly attentive and did everything to put us at our ease on arrival and through our stay. We were also grateful to her six year old daughter, Nancy, for ensuring that everything in the playroom was in good order for us. Whilst our visit was as a family holiday, the venue offers the perfect spot, elegance and facilities for any special event or anniversary.
