“The Stables: Excellent accommodation for the less mobile”

The Stables is a very well equipped and comfortable cottage particularly suitable for the less mobile with its downstairs bedroom and wet room. Very well situated for visiting the whole of the Dorset coast. Lovely welcome from Sarah, who could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed a wonderful holiday with fine weather, the Stables is well equipped, comfortable and clean.The downstairs ensuite bathroom has excellent facilities for the disabled and there's a private garden with table and chairs to enjoy a sundowner too! Great base from which to visit this beautiful area - enjoyed the coastal drive to Burton Bradstock followed by lunch at The Hive right on the beach, the sub tropical gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury, Weymouth, Monkey World, The Tank Museum and more! Sarah was very welcoming and recommended some great places locally to eat.We really enjoyed our stay here , first class!

“Very nice, ideal location for the Sailing Academy”

people found this review helpful

We would recommend the barn, clean and smart, plenty of space and close-by parking. It was ideal for the week where my daughter was sailing at the National Youth championships at the W&PNSA. An ideal spot for parents to come back to for some rest and relaxation while the youths were racing. Equally good in the evening for eating and chilling out. Two TV's so the oldies can watch something different We will definitely consider this again for future events.

“Excellant accomodation and ideal for mobility needs”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed here with my Mother for a long weekend in October 2013 and can only praise everything about the property. Mum had a cracking time and found the property easy to get about in and the facilities more than suited her mobility needs. There are electric gates into both of the properties for security although the localality appeared good with a shop and two nice pub/restaurants nearby. The owners were very helpful and amiable and had taken every effort to make sure the property was in tip top appearance and clean, etc before our arrival. We understand that if you should need certain mobility equipment, it maybe available to use from nearby, but check with the owners.
The visitors book has nothing but good remarks and comments and one hirer had been there eleven times!! We definitely suggest anyone try it out if you are visiting the area for a break. There are several attractions very close by too and worth a visit. We would love to go back if we get down that way again. Score....11/10!!

“Tidmoor Stables - Excellent”

We stayed at Tidmoor Stables for a long weekend and wished we could have stayed longer. The accommodation was perfect in every way. Large bedrooms with fantastic en-suites, a very nice open plan lounge, dining room with a well equipped kitchen. Sarah was very helpful and arranged a disability scooter for our stay. We ate out every evening either in Chickerell or Weymouth. Went out and about every day on the local buses, very good service. Would definitely recommend this property.

“Spacious and modern accommodation in a great location”

We booked to stay for a week in The Stables (next to The Barn) based on an internet search for holiday accommodation in Weymouth and we were delighted with both location and the house itself, which has recently been refurbished. A great deal of care has been taken with the layout, decor and finish and it was great to arrive after a long drive to somewhere that was welcoming and relaxing.
The Stables are tucked away from the road at the top of a lane and a 10-15 minute walk will bring you onto the Coast Path leading to The Fleet. The location was great for us as we wanted to visit Portland for birdwatching, Portland Harbour for windsurfing and also to visit Weymouth.
Would definitely recommend.
