A great place for a Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay away from it all with friends at Christmas. The Gift House is very well equipped and extremely comfortable, with plenty of room for 9 adults and a dog. It was great to be able to be warm and cosy looking out over the story sea.

There were a few niggles with the plumbing, but nothing to be too concerned about.

A wonderful house with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic - the photos don't do it justice. It's big and roomy and tastefully decorated. The views from the first and second floor across Chesil Beach and onto Weymouth are fabulous. The owners were very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed for a great stay. We would definitely stay there again.

Our stay in June 17

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the property having visited over half term May/June 17. It is a lovely house over 3 floors with great views over Chesil beach and the sea. Parking is easy and there's lots to do in the area. We are a family of 4 so we had lots of space! The owners made it very welcoming and helped with any questions .Would highly recommend it .
