We had a lovely week in the stables, weather gorgeous. A lovely clean and cosy cottage with great views from the first floor sitting room all across the fleet. There are lovely walks along the fleet straight from the door. Sarah recommended we go to the jailhouse cafe which we did and had a lovely lunch, we didn't even know it had been turned into a cafe despite Weymouth being our second home.
All in all, a fantastic cottage, great location and the owner was lovely too. Would definitely stay there again.

“Super Quality Accomodation”

We stayed in the Stables with my 95 year old father-in-law, who took the ground floor twin room with the wet-room ensuite. He was impressed with the facilities and slept well. We loved the light, open plan, airy feel of the downstairs lounge diner. The sofas are very comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped and it also has a beech hedge enclosed small garden where you could relax in warmer weather and enjoy a B-B-Q. A freeview set gave plenty of TV chanels to enjoy at night.It is very well placed to enjoy all the Dorset coastal area.
Sarah is lovely and can give plenty of information about the surrounding area. It really deserves its 4 star rating and gave us a brilliant break.

Lovely, light and airy Barn with good access to all local attractions. Everything you need for a self catering holiday. Large rooms with beautiful views over Chesil Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

The Barn at Tidmoor Cottages is an immaculate conversion into a modern,spacious and comfortable holiday accommodation. The view from the additional 1st floor lounge in the morning over Chisel beach is lovely what ever the weather.

The property is located just off the main coast road, ideal for the coast west of Weymouth and Portland without having to go through the town. The coastal path to the beach is on the doorstep.

“Fabulous place to stay”

We stayed for a week at the Barn (Tidmoor cottages) and it was a complete joy and exceeded our expectations. The property has a fantastic wet room for the less abled on the ground and the bedroom upstairs has a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside and Chickerell beach.
The Barn is extremely well placed to all the local amenities even without a car.
The Barn is really well kept and has everything you could need for your stay.
The owners, Alan & Sarah, were an absolute delight and on hand anytime for anything you needed.
We ate a couple of times at 'The Marquis of Granby' pub on the Chickerell Road and would thoroughly recommend it. The food and service was wonderful and very reasonably priced.
We, as a group, myself, husband and sister/brother in law had the most wonderful week and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the property to everyone.

“First visit to Tidmoor Stables :-)”
Reviewed November 26, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We visited Tidmoor Cottages in October for a weeks stay and had a great time in The Stables. The property was much larger than we had thought it would be, so plenty of room for a family to spend a week together. Lots of nice beaches and villages only a short drive so I'm a great location, plus a few nice restaurants that you can walk to if you fancy heading out in the evening (the Marquis of Granby is lovely and only a 5min walk).
Would love to return to this property we had a fantastic week there, a few suggestions a new and upgraded TV in the living room would be great and a couple of small TVs in the two bedrooms.
Also wifi would be great as most self catering properties offer this now, these few extra touches would take this property up to a 5*!!
Many thanks, Sue, Dave and Sarah
