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!

Apartment was clean and functional with all the required creature comforts. Good off street parking and location is fine, being just 10 minutes walk from the town centre. Would certainly consider staying here again.
