This comfortable semi-detached family home is on the edge of the countryside, yet only three miles from Weymouth with its sandy beaches and historic quay. A 20 minute walk takes you to the Fleet lagoon, a fabulous rich wildlife reserve, where you can join the Jurassic Coast path. The sitting/dining-room is spacious and the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to create a real feast – although two pubs are within very easy walking distance. Upstairs there is a king-size bed in the master bedroom and a twin room that overlooks the garden. The west-facing garden (steep steps please supervise children at all times) is a very peaceful place to relax and plan your day's adventures, or simply listen to the birdsong.
This is a fantastic base for exploring all that this part of Dorset has to offer; children will love the sandy beaches at Weymouth, an array of new buckets and spades on offer and a traditional Punch and Judy Show throughout the summer months. Brewers Quay is the home of a converted Victorian Brewery near the Old Harbour in Weymouth; the area has some interesting shops, cafes and bistros. Walkers and wildlife enthusiasts, bring your boots, there are miles of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast path to explore; geographical landmarks such as Chesil Beach, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. Further west the picturesque village of Abbotsbury, with its unique swannery and sub-tropical gardens, will make a day to remember. The coast road between Chickerell and Bridport offers magnificent views in both directions; the Isle of Portland and Chesil beach to the east and Golden Cap to the west. Take a break along the route at the Hive beach cafe, a fabulous seafood cafe right on the beach at Burton Bradstock. A little further down the coast you will come to West Bay, the filming scene for Broadchurch, a seaside village with a new quirky Customs House area; vintage, retro, curiosities and lots of places to eat!
