Town: The picturesque village of Upwey lies just four miles north of Weymouth, nestling beneath the Dorset Ridgeway, and takes its name from the shallow chalk stream, the River Wey, which bubbles up here from an underground spring. Upwey is well-known for its Wishing Well, where George III once sought the benefits of the natural spring water. It is now a delightful tea room, serving lunches and traditional cream teas. There are a number of footpaths leading directly from the village to miles of unspoilt countryside, and close by is the market town of Dorchester, Thomas Hardy’s ’Casterbridge’. An easy drive or bus ride takes you to the popular seaside resort of Weymouth offering visitors glorious golden sandy beaches, excellent watersports facilities and a bustling harbour. An attractive village location and an ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.More

We have just spent a long weekend here with two teenagers. Smart tvs and hairdryers in every bedroom are brilliant for families. Two very good sized bathrooms. Very well equipped kitchen. Light and airy open plan layout. We are already planning another stay!

Just spent a brilliant week here in this new modern cottage. Great location for our visit to walking the coastal paths - in fact very pretty walks straight from the door. Very close to Weymouth and Dorchester with their excellent restaurants and entertainments. Lovely facilities...More
