Upwey, Weymouth, Dorset, England
Described as 'absolute bliss' and 'wonderfully peaceful' by some of our previous guests, The Swallows offers true tranquillity near the village of Abbotsbury, a short drive from the seaside town of Weymouth and the picturesque Jurassic Coast. We have seven self-catering cottages in total forming Character Farm Cottages and all stand on our beautiful and extensive working dairy farm where we provide a wholesome family holiday experience rare in modern times. The Swallows is available for weekly holidays all year and for off-season short breaks. It is near some of Dorset's most spectacular attractions and only a mile from Chesil Beach which can be seen from most of the farm.

The Swallows Cottage offers home-from-home comforts for a holiday you can take at your own pace. At the cottage you're welcome to enjoy winter...

This is a beautiful cottage with great views across the valley.It is located in a very quiet country location yet only 5 miles from Weymouth.The Dorset coast is well worth visiting.

Well equipped, pretty cottage complete with books and toys. Enclosed child- and dog-friendly garden. Beautiful location. My only tiny quibble is that I prefer a proper double bed to joined singles. Would love to return!

The Swallows is a two-bedroom semi-detached cottage in rural Dorset. It's only a 10-minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Weymouth, so best of both worlds. The house is pretty, airy, comfortable in size and furnishings. The kitchen is very well kitted-out (decent knives,...More

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty to do in the local area. The cottage is surrounded by open farmland which you are able to roam on - ideal if you bring a four legged friend- and the Coastal Footpath literally runs through our farm, Weymouth is a couple of miles to the east of us and has a lovely sandy beach with clean shallow water, ideal for little ones. To the west you find the village of Abbotsbury, famous for its historic Swannery and sub-tropical gardens. During Easter time you can visit the Swannery and watch the birds hatching! A little further on is Westbay with its dramatic Jurassic cliffs which featured heavily in the crime series Broadchurch. Lyme Regis is worth a visit and you are almost guaranteed to find a fossil.
We are spoilt for good pubs in the area and some excellent local fish res...
