Weymouth, Dorset Cottages
Simply Stunning! Situated along a country lane on the edge of the picturesque village of Upwey, Cobblestone House has been skilfully refurbished by its current owners to offer fantastic holiday accommodation for family or friends.
Originally serving as the Granary for the nearby Friary, this is a house steeped in history with plenty of original features such as the impressive ancient timber structure and huge cruck beams. The living spaces are stylishly furnished and decorated in a subtle, 'Farrow and Ball' palette of colours, inviting guests to feel at home.
All modern conveniences have been thoughtfully provided, including a state-of-the-art, 'Neptune' kitchen with dining area, while the spacious living room with inglenook and a superb, double-height, master bedroom with its enormous stone fireplace are wonderful places to retreat to after a day out. A real bonus is fantastic outbuilding which provides a practical and comfortable additional living/TV room/kids' den with single garage and bike storage below. Guests return again and again they love it so much!

Keen walkers and cyclists will find footpaths and suitable cycle routes on the doorstep, while for those preferring watersports, Weymouth, with its long sandy beach and marina incorporating the Olympic sailing centre, is just three miles away (various activities including sailing and water ski-ing courses can be booked at the sailing centre).
A unique stretch of Dorset's Jurassic coastline is within easy driving distance - Durdle Door, Sandbanks, Studland Bay and Poole Harbour to the east and the Chesil Beach, the Fleet Lagoon and Abbotsbury Swannery and Sub-tropical Gardens to the west. The county town of Dorchester (Dinosaur Museum and multiplex cinema) is just three miles.
Upwey itself is a charming village nestling beneath South Dorset chalk downland with mainline station to London (Waterloo), several pubs, a 13th century church, art gallery and the well-known Wishing Well tea rooms and water garden. Monkey world is nearby and worth a visit, and you may also like to visit the famous Tank Museum,
"beautiful property and generally very well equipped. only issue was kitchen utensils which could have been better e.g. no cork screw!"Perrin
"Cobblestone House nestles in a tranquil valley where the only night-time sounds are the hoots of the tawny owls, yet it is just a few miles from the supermarkets and car parks on the outskirts of Weymouth with regular buses to the beautiful sea front. The house is very well equipped to a very high standard and has ideal accommodation for our 3 generation family. 2017 will be our third visit to Cobblestone House and we all love it! With our young grandchildren we love the safe, sandy beaches at Weymouth, walking on the shingle at Chesil Bank on Portland Bill, eating at the Crab Snack and visiting Monkey World. We are all looking forward to returning to this fabulous property this summer."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 12 February 2017. 5 of 5 stars. 2017-02-12
