About the property

Detached House in Rodwell, Weymouth, Nr. Jurassic Coast.Dorset, England - Quiet, Residential Location With Small Local Sandy Beaches A Short Walk Away

Seaview is a spacious detached house in a quiet cul de sac, with a private enclosed rear garden which is ideal for safe outdoor play for children and dogs alike. It is approximately 1 mile from the centre of Weymouth and its excellent beach and harbour, and has superb views towards Portland, Chesil Beach and the Jurassic Coast. Weymouth and Portland hosted the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing events, and Seaview hosted the Finnish team! With a large kitchen, 4+ bedrooms and 3 living areas, there is ample room for large families or parties. Children are welcome; we have a high chair and 'pop up' stair gate available for use in the house. Several of the bedrooms will accommodate your own travel cots if needs be. Responsible dog owners (and their dogs!) are also welcome, though we do insist that dogs should be kept off of the beds at all times please, and that we are made aware when you make the booking, of your intention to bring your canine friend/s with you! There is plenty of opportunity close by, for walking (human!), dog walking, cycling, sea swimming/paddling, water sports, scenic meandering and relaxing. The small local beaches are also within easy walking distance.

About Sue and Noel Stubbs

My wife and I live in the wonderful seaside town of Weymouth, where we both grew up. Weymouth combines a traditional seaside atmosphere and bustling working harbour area with some excellent bars and restaurants. Weymouth is a top class sailing location, having hosted tall ships races in the past, and the Olympic Sailing events in 2012. The National Sailing Centre is around 2 miles from the house, and underlines Weymouth's maritime attractions, which include diving, windsurfing and kite surfing as well as one of the UK's finest beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Louise+Family: "Wow! First time for us all in a holiday home (usually caravans). It will be hard to match this fantastic house; everything a family could ask for. Thank you Sue and Noel, your attention to detail made the holiday complete.

Beautiful home to match a beautiful area and coastline. Hope to return one day".



The Brewer Family:"We have had a fantastic w/e here celebrating my 60th birthday.The house is superb! Loved all the rooms and the wonderful space. Beds were so comfy too! Thank you for allowing us to bring Chip - he had a wonderful time in the garden (and trying to chase the gulls!) :-)



The Green Family: "Had the most amazing family get-together, made all the more special by the fantastic accommodation and facilities - did not want to leave! Many thanks."



Georgina: "We had an excellent time in Weymouth this year. The house is brilliant and had everything we wanted and more. The location is close to town and the beach; we hope to come back next year."



Khan Family: "Dear Sue and Noel, Thanks a lot for a fantastic holiday home. We really enjoyed the time and our kids want to come back again for our next summer holiday. Love to stay again. Thanks a lot!!"



Jefferys and Byers Families: "So lucky with the weather after all the storms! (February) A fantastic well-equipped house that was just perfect for a family weekend. We spent a lot of time around the large dining table, eating, drinking and playing board games. Thank you for a home from home break."



Hill Family (January): "Lovely cosy house and well-appointed kitchen; was much appreciated by all who cooked in it! Enjoyed looking around Weymouth. Dodged showers to walk around Portland Sculpture Park - well worth the visit. Weather terrible (January!) but the house made up for it. A very comfortable and enjoyable week - thank you."



The Hodges family: "Fabulous house! It was very well-equipped - the kitchen had everything you could think of! We had a fabulous day playing in the garden and having a barbeque - tremendous bbq! Although we weren't too lucky with the weather, we did have a great time crabbing in Weymouth, and visiting Portland Bill. Would highly recommend the Rodwell Trail (very close to the house) and Tout Quarry on Portland. Thank you so much - a wonderful place to stay for a family get-together with young kids."



Finnish Yachting Federation (2012 Olympics): " Sue and Noel...thank you so much for this lovely summer. It's been wonderful living here for 11 weeks! We got 2 OLYMPIC MEDALS (Tuuli's silver and a bronze for Silja, Silja and Michaela) during our stay....and had great parties here as well!!! Best Wishes from us all."

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: We aim to provide an attractive, comfortable and cosy get-away for our guests in a lovely part of Dorset, where the enclosed garden provides a peaceful place to relax and a safe place for children to play. The house is light and airy, and although there is carpet on the main stairs, all other areas in the house have 'hard' flooring, and are therefore easy to keep clean. The accommodation is fairly flexible, with 4 double bedrooms plus a large loft bedroom which itself can sleep up to 6. 3 of the 4 main bedrooms would also allow room for a travel cot or child's blow-up bed if you have these to bring with you. The kitchen is large, and is great if you enjoy 'family cooking' with everyone lending a hand! Please take a look at our availability calendar which is updated regularly, and our pricing before contacting us - Thank You. Outside: Secluded private garden with mature shrubs and trees. There is a patio with seating for 8 and a 2nd area with further seating and summer house. There is a large, modern 4-burner gas barbecue for guests' use in the summer, and a couple of small children's tables with sun umbrellas for use in the garden. Additional adult seating for outdoor use and a regular-sized fridge are both available in the summer house. We have a Regatta 2-person pop up tent with mats and sleeping bags available for use if occasional outdoor sleeping appeals to you! There is also a children's pop-up play tent, a striped beach/garden sun shelter and a waterproof picnic rug. There is a 'Little Tikes' sand and water tray, and a garden swingball set for adults and children alike to enjoy. Large 'snakes and ladders' is also available. To the front of the house, there is parking for 4/5 cars (with extra parking available if needed.) Utility Room: All 'utility room' items included within the large kitchen. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and bed linen for the size of each party (up to 12) included in the cost, as is fuel + wifi. There is of course a washing machine and dryer should you need to wash your towels/bedding during your stay. The house is attended by a regular gardener. Other: Dining area is open plan leading from kitchen and would seat 12 people across 2 tables. Small sitting room/study leads off the dining area with a Double Sofa Bed which can sleep 2. Loft room accessed by stairs from bedroom 1 which can also sleep 2 - 6

Excellent Property Excellent Owner

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well kept and in excellent condition. Was large enough inside and out for all 8 of us to either spend time together or have our own space. We wanted for nothing as the owners had seemed to be able to think of everything!! The garden was spacious and secure enough to let our 4 and 2 year olds have as much fun as possible and the BBQ was a great touch to watch the sun go down.

The owners could not do enough to accommodate our needs before the stay and the communication was once again excellent.

Cannot recommend highly enough and would love to go back again to enjoy the delights of Weymouth still left to see.

Owner's Response: .....and you'd be very welcome Peter and family! Many thanks for your lovely review of your week at Seaview. We always endeavour to make the house as comfortable as possible for guests, whether it's a party of 2 or 12, and it's good to know that you all felt you had plenty of space both inside and outside of Seaview. Glad you had the opportunity to use the BBQ too - it's a bit of a sun trap down in that area of the garden! We look forward to seeing you all again in the future if you decide to make that return trip to Weymouth :-) Best wishes, Sue and Noel Stubbs.

Brilliant Stay

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house very spacious, lots to do in the area.

Great for large families

Thank you Sue the house was lovely. Very comfy, home from home.

The garden was lovely for the children, they really enjoyed the sand pit and the playhouse.

You can see the sea out of some of the windows, and not too far to walk to a small beach, gardens, cafe and castle ruins.

Everything you could need was in the house.

Many Thanks xx

Owner's Response: Many thanks Angela for your lovely review of your week spent at Seaview with your family. We are so pleased that you found the house suited your large family party, and that you managed to explore the lovely places we have to offer, both nearby and also a cars ride away, in this area of South Dorset. We certainly feel lucky ourselves to live here! As you found out for yourselves, there's plenty to do and see for both the young and older visitors we welcome to Seaview, and if we can provide a comfortable and homely base for visitors as well, we're happy :-) Thank you Angela.

Location

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The nearest local sandy beaches along the edge of Portland Harbour are within a 10 minute walk. The large, scenic, main Weymouth beach is a 20/25 minute walk from the house, or a short drive. This beach has a long, wide expanse of very soft, light and clean sand. At the far end, (in the Greenhill area) the beach is covered with pebbles mostly.

Dogs are allowed with their owners along the whole of Weymouth beach from October/April generally. However, they are confined to one area May/September.

Travel:

Bournemouth and Exeter are the nearest airports. Trains run regularly to a variety of destinations to and from Weymouth Station. There is an excellent bus service running along the length of the scenic Jurassic Coast, which is very popular with both locals and visitors. There is also a very busy coach trips business based in Weymouth. Of course, there is also a local bus service running frequently, covering Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester etc. Try the 'open-top' bus Weymouth/Portland Bill!

Distances:

Weymouth Harbour...1 mile, 15/20 min walk

Abbotsbury - Village, Swannery and Sub-Tropical Gardens ...9.5 miles, 25mins drive

Lyme Regis.....28 miles, 1 hour's drive

Further Details:

This is an ideal area if you are interested in water sports/activities. Thanks to the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, we now have the National Sailing Academy nearby, as well as a water sports facility 5 minutes walk away. Windsurfing/kite surfing are also very popular in our area.

There are of course, local sandy beaches for children/adults as well as the main Weymouth Beach with it's many facilities/activities on offer.

There is plenty of countryside to explore surrounding the Weymouth area, especially if you are willing to drive short distances and walk when you get there! Places such as Abbotsbury Swannery (30/40 minute drive) and Hardy Monument amongst others, are always a pleasure to visit. Portland Bill is also a fantastic place, with or without dogs to walk.

There are also plenty of walking opportunities just on leaving 'Seaview' itself, and either heading in the direction of Portland......or Weymouth town; either way, a good proportion of the journey can be completed away from any roads or traffic, which HAS to be a good thing! There is information online about the 'Rodwell Trail', which can be accessed very close by.

Weymouth has no shortage of good restaurants (all budgets/types), pubs, clubs etc, many of which are around the harbour area. Many have outdoor seating especially in the warmer months, which often makes the harbour a lively, colourful place to be. Weymouth Harbour is also a very busy place early in the mornings, with fishing boats landing their catches daily.

Asda is the nearest large supermarket to 'Seaview', but there are also others available in the Weymouth area, including Tesco (Portland), Morrisons and Sainsburys.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Booking Notes: Please enquire personally regarding rates for periods of less than 7 nights at Seaview. The automatically generated rates on the site may well be incorrect, as we take several factors into consideration when arriving at a customised quote; it's not just a matter of taking a rate and multiplying it by the number of nights - so please ask.
25% as an initial non refundable payment, and the remainder due 6 weeks before the period of renting. We prefer internet bank transfers as method of payment because it is quick and reliable, but we are also happy to take cheques. We are NOT able to accept card payments or PayPal payments. On receipt of the deposit, you will receive the booking confirmation by email.
It would be appreciated if you could check our up-to-date availability calendar and pricing before getting in touch. Thank you.

Changeover Day:
Usually changeover day would be Saturday, although we are very flexible with this. We do take bookings other than for weekly periods. Please ask for a quote. Arrival time would be after 4pm and departure time by 10am.

Notes on prices:
We have recently reviewed our prices and these are now current for 2016 and 2017!
Seaview is a very versatile house, and can be enjoyed by a couple as much as by a party of 12!
We can quote for weekend/short stays at any time of the year if requested. As a guideline, a 3-night Friday - Monday weekend stay could cost slightly more than half the cost of a week in the same period.
There are no additional fuel charges - all is included in the price quoted.
