Property code: DC180

Lovingly converted Grade II listed former stables in the charming village of Upwey, perfectly situated to explore Weymouth and beyond along the stunning Jurassic Coastline.

Enjoy the convenience of a well-appointed village whilst making the most of a convenient location, perfect for exploring the coastline and countryside alike. Take a stroll into the heart of the village to find a shop, pub and a couple of eateries offering respite after a day in the great outdoors. Beyond the village, Weymouth lies just 3.5 miles away, where you can explore the sandy beach, independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Furthermore, you can visit the oceanic exhibit that is the Jurassic Skyline, the Victorian Nothe Fort and the ancient ruins of the cliffside Sandsfoot Castle, just to name a few attractions. 10 miles away is the picturesque Isle of Portland with its traditional lighthouse and stunning 16th-century castle.

Set back from the village high street and located adjacent to the owner's property, this delightful property offers a wealth of character and equine memorabilia. Step through the traditional stable door to find a double height lounge with vaulted beamed ceiling and dining area boasting many of its original qualities to create a homely space. Fire up the traditional wood burner as you sink into the comfortable sofa of an evening and truly unwind. A feature stone wall, hayloft window and flagstone floor add to the ambience of this space. The compact but well-equipped galley kitchen complete with Belfast sink, induction hob and oak worktops, sits behind the stable divider, so you can rustle up some homecooked food before enjoying it in the cosy dining area which is nestled in the corner of the living space. When the day is done, retreat upstairs to the mezzanine balcony bedroom complete with low-level double bed, beamed 'A' frame in the vaulted ceiling, oak floor and balustrade overlooking the ground floor. The bathroom, home to a shower and WC is located on the ground floor.

To the front of the cottage, you can make the most of an unenclosed shale and cobbled seating area offering shade throughout the warmer months. Whether you’re starting your day with a morning coffee as you soak up the atmosphere or ending the evening with a spot of al fresco dining, it a wonderful space to enjoy. The cottage offers off-road parking for one car.

We had a very overdue break at the Old Stable and were certainly not disappointed. It is a snug and cosy place for two. It is well located for exploring both local and further afield parts of Dorset. There was a very thoughtful 'welcome pack' and Rachael and Nathan are clearly putting a lot of thought into making people feel welcome. We are definitRead moreely planning to return again in 2022 and would recommend the Old Stable to anyone who is looking for a 'switch off' to recharge the batteries. Hide

Ideally situated between Dorchester and Weymouth. A small cottage, well appointed. Near to the River Wey. Excellent bus service just outside the cottage. Although the Fish and Chip shop sign is outside the adjacent property, this has ceased to trade and is now a dog grooming business.

Cottage was cosy and comfortable and I really enjoyed my stay. The welcome pack was very good. Location was good, village shop almost next door and the bus stop right outside with very frequent buses to Weymouth and Dorchester. Local walks straight out of the door along The Wey, and to the lovely Wishing Well Tea and Water Gardens in Upwey. The onlRead morey downside was that there was nowhere sunny to sit outside as the little, pretty courtyard faces east and only gets the early morning sun. Hide
