4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Upwey, Weymouth, Dorset, England
Lovely quiet cottage situated in an elevated position on the old Roman Road out of Weymouth leading to Dorchester. Some views leading to Weymouth are accessible from the outdoor elevated sun terrace.

Beautiful, well equipped cottage in a perfect location. This is our second year at Vitality cottage. Perfect for our family with elderly grandparents and young children. The location is perfect for day trips in the area, walking in the beautiful Dorset countryside and trips to the beaches. Owners very helpful and responsive.
