Nestling close to the lovely seaside town of Weymouth, this charming single-storey barn conversion is an ideal base for anyone exploring the wonderful county of Dorset.

This cottage is one of three cottages which nestle within a pleasant spot, allowing you to explore the stunning scenery of the surrounding countryside and of the Jurassic Coast. There are many public footpaths within a short drive, numerous coastal paths and inland bridleways, and many picturesque villages with great pubs where you can enjoy a drink and a good meal. The area is famed for its many beautiful and popular beaches including Chesil Beach which stretches for eighteen miles. There are many attractions which a short drive are just away, including Weymouth with its Sealife Centre, Abbotsbury Swannery, Monkey World, Dinosaur Museum, Lulworth Cove, Lulworth Castle and Durdle Door. In the evenings, relax in the enclosed garden or visit one of the three pubs which are less than a mile away.

Stepping into this delightful single-storey barn conversion, you will find yourself in the light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen which has lovely views over the enclosed garden and countryside beyond. The lounge is snug and bright, tastefully furnished and complete with a TV/DVD. Heading over to the kitchen area, there is an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, washing machine and microwave. You will find a separate, cosy dining room which is perfect for enjoying leisurely meals with family and friends. Exploring this delightful accommodation further, there are two comfortable bedrooms.

A lovely place to stay, immaculately clean and very comfortable, with a south facing private garden to sit out in. Very friendly owners who were helpful and accommodating, and plenty to do with Weymouth and the Jurassic coast on the doorstep. Downsides: a bit of roadnoise (but not too bad). There's no wifi but there is good 4G phone signal.

Cosy exceptionally clean dog friendly cottage. This is our 2nd visit last time we stayed in Sky Lark which we preferred for the open plan layout (dining room was not separate) But thats just personal preference. It was lovely to watch the obligatory Goldfinches quickly work their way through the food on the bird feeder from the lounge. Good encloseRead mored garden which was useful as no direct access to dog walks. Welcome apple cake was much appreciated + tea & coffee. Great stay thanks! Hide

Cannot fault the location and cleanliness of the property. However lack of wifi in this day and age and also having to pay extra for bathroom towels is not ideal.
