Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Weymouth - Sycamores Cottage

Sycamores Cottage is one of seven holiday cottages situated on our working farm 5 miles to the West of Weymouth and a stones throw form the stunning Chesil Beach and Jurassic Coastline. The cottage can accommodate 5 people with 2 bedrooms upstairs which can be made up as doubles or twin beds as required. The cottage is full of features such as exposed beams, inglenooks and an open fire. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a dishwasher, and has a farmhouse table which easily sits 5 for sociable meal times together. The sitting room has a sofa and 2 armchairs for relaxing in front of the open log fire or watching TV. Free wifi is provided for you to keep in touch with the outside world! The upstairs bathroom has a bath and shower attachment.

The Sycamores has a large enclosed south facing enclosed garden with patio and garden furniture to enjoy a barbeque or evening drinks. The garden leads onto our own farm land from which you can join the Coastal Footpath and numerous shorter walks. There is plenty of space at the rear of the cottage to park your car and we are dog friendly (normally a maximum of 2).

There is a games room a short walk away from the Sycamores which has table tennis, table football and a good selection of paper backs for you to borrow. It also has laundry facilities.

We try to stick to weekly breaks running Friday to Friday and short breaks out of season - a 3 night break running Friday to Monday and a 4 night break running Monday to Friday. However we can be flexible if you have different requirements.

About Colin Elwood

Character Farm Cottages is owned by my wife Jane and her parents Rob and Ann Mayo and have been in the self catering business for over 30 years. Many of our guests come several times a year and we now have 3rd generations of families enjoying our cottages! In addition Jane and Rob run the family farm which is mixed and consists of dairy, arable and beef. Many of our guests enjoy wandering the many footpaths on the farm, visiting the dairy and helping feed the young calves. I am a long haul pilot for British Airways and when at home, help out with the farm and keeping the cottages up together. I also keep our own website up and running and do all the bookings and correspondence.

We do hope you choose to visit and enjoy our wonderful part of West Dorset!

What makes this cottage unique

Sycamores Cottage is situated on our working dairy farm on the outskirts of Langton Herring, a short distance away from the stunning Chesil Beach and Fleet Lagoon. The cottage is surrounded by open fields in which you are free to walk and join many public foot paths and indeed the Coastal Footpath runs very close to the cottage. 5 miles to the east is the seaside town of Weymouth which has a beautiful sandy beach and lovely safe and shallow water. 3 miles to the west is the village of Abbotsbury famous for its Swannery and Sub-tropical gardens. A little bit further on is the village of WestBay which was the location for the popular ITV series Broadchurch. Here you will find the stunning beach and cliffs which often formed the backdrop to the program.

The market town of Dorchester is a 15 minute drive away and is worth a visit, particularly to Brewery Square wucih is a new developement featuring an Odeon Cinema and many eating places such as Nandos, Pizza Express, Cotes, Zizzis and Waggamamas. Dorset is a fantastic place to explore and there are many country houses and gardens to visit. Also Monkey World, the Tank Museum at Bovingdon, Go Ape, Brenscombe Outdoor Center with its exhilarating high ropes and numerous beaches should keep all busy.

The Sycamores is on the edge of the small village of Langton Herring, 3 miles from the seaside town of Weymouth. From the cottage you can walk a short distance to the Fleet and Chesil Beach which forms part of the famous Jurassic Coast recently featured in the highly popular TV series "Broadchurch". We farm most of the land surrounding the Sycamores and we are always very happy to show guests around the dairy to see the cows being milked. Youngsters also like to lend a hand feeding the baby calves! Langton Herring has its own pub called the Elm Tree Inn which is a short walk from the cottage. In the next door village, Portesham you will find the Kings Arms which we highly recommend.

Weymouth is popular for its lovely sandy beach and shallow waters. It also has other attractions such as Sea Life Center, Nothe Fort, Brewers Quay, karting and a multiplex cinema. Nearby Dorchester has a good selection of restaurants at the newly opened Brewers Square such as Nandos, Waggamamas, Carluccios and Cote.

Dorset is also home to many stunning country houses and gardens, the Tank Museum at Bovington, Monkey World, and many fantastic country pubs.
