A lovely and clean place to stay, the only downside was the busy main road, it was not safe to walk along and was quite noisy at times, however it did quieten down at night. Nice and spacious inside with everything you would need for a great stay.

Lovely cottage - clean, well equipped and Nice touches by the owners such as the welcome tea, coffee, milk and cake, as well as more practical things like washing up liquid, loo roll, salt and pepper.

Skylark is well-furnished and equipped with all the kitchen utensils and equipment we needed. The fridge could be a little bigger but its decent ice box kept our frozen food well-frozen for our week-long stay. Very clean.

The cottage is easy accessible and central to all the attractions in the Weymouth area. The landlords are very friendly and willing to help out wherever they can. We managed to accommodate 4 adults and 2 infants in the cottage with ease and were warm throughout, despite the best efforts of the 'min beast from the East'. An enjoyable experience

One of the most comfortable cottages we have stayed in and we would definitely like to stay again but it is obviously so popular this is going to be difficult

Skylark sits in a quiet rural location and we slept well there. It is very well presented. The shower was great and well-worth a mention as were the towel rails. We were very cosy for our out-of-season holiday. The good-sized, very secure garden for our dogs was a bonus. Many visitor attractions are not too far away.
