Overview

About the property

Detached House in Rodwell, Weymouth, Nr. Jurassic Coast.Dorset, England - Quiet, Residential Location With Small Local Sandy Beaches A Short Walk Away

Seaview is a spacious detached house in a quiet cul de sac, with a private enclosed rear garden which is ideal for safe outdoor play for children and dogs alike. It is approximately 1 mile from the centre of Weymouth and its excellent beach and harbour, and has superb views towards Portland, Chesil Beach and the Jurassic Coast. Weymouth and Portland hosted the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing events, and Seaview hosted the Finnish team! With a large kitchen, 4+ bedrooms and 3 living areas, there is ample room for large families or parties. Children are welcome; we have a high chair and 'pop up' stair gate available for use in the house. Several of the bedrooms will accommodate your own travel cots if needs be. Responsible dog owners (and their dogs!) are also welcome, though we do insist that dogs should be kept off of the beds at all times please, and that we are made aware when you make the booking, of your intention to bring your canine friend/s with you! There is plenty of opportunity close by, for walking (human!), dog walking, cycling, sea swimming/paddling, water sports, scenic meandering and relaxing. The small local beaches are also within easy walking distance.

About Sue and Noel Stubbs

My wife and I live in the wonderful seaside town of Weymouth, where we both grew up. Weymouth combines a traditional seaside atmosphere and bustling working harbour area with some excellent bars and restaurants. Weymouth is a top class sailing location, having hosted tall ships races in the past, and the Olympic Sailing events in 2012. The National Sailing Centre is around 2 miles from the house, and underlines Weymouth's maritime attractions, which include diving, windsurfing and kite surfing as well as one of the UK's finest beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Louise+Family: "Wow! First time for us all in a holiday home (usually caravans). It will be hard to match this fantastic house; everything a family could ask for. Thank you Sue and Noel, your attention to detail made the holiday complete.

Beautiful home to match a beautiful area and coastline. Hope to return one day".



The Brewer Family:"We have had a fantastic w/e here celebrating my 60th birthday.The house is superb! Loved all the rooms and the wonderful space. Beds were so comfy too! Thank you for allowing us to bring Chip - he had a wonderful time in the garden (and trying to chase the gulls!) :-)



The Green Family: "Had the most amazing family get-together, made all the more special by the fantastic accommodation and facilities - did not want to leave! Many thanks."



Georgina: "We had an excellent time in Weymouth this year. The house is brilliant and had everything we wanted and more. The location is close to town and the beach; we hope to come back next year."



Khan Family: "Dear Sue and Noel, Thanks a lot for a fantastic holiday home. We really enjoyed the time and our kids want to come back again for our next summer holiday. Love to stay again. Thanks a lot!!"



Jefferys and Byers Families: "So lucky with the weather after all the storms! (February) A fantastic well-equipped house that was just perfect for a family weekend. We spent a lot of time around the large dining table, eating, drinking and playing board games. Thank you for a home from home break."



Hill Family (January): "Lovely cosy house and well-appointed kitchen; was much appreciated by all who cooked in it! Enjoyed looking around Weymouth. Dodged showers to walk around Portland Sculpture Park - well worth the visit. Weather terrible (January!) but the house made up for it. A very comfortable and enjoyable week - thank you."



The Hodges family: "Fabulous house! It was very well-equipped - the kitchen had everything you could think of! We had a fabulous day playing in the garden and having a barbeque - tremendous bbq! Although we weren't too lucky with the weather, we did have a great time crabbing in Weymouth, and visiting Portland Bill. Would highly recommend the Rodwell Trail (very close to the house) and Tout Quarry on Portland. Thank you so much - a wonderful place to stay for a family get-together with young kids."



Finnish Yachting Federation (2012 Olympics): " Sue and Noel...thank you so much for this lovely summer. It's been wonderful living here for 11 weeks! We got 2 OLYMPIC MEDALS (Tuuli's silver and a bronze for Silja, Silja and Michaela) during our stay....and had great parties here as well!!! Best Wishes from us all."

Location

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The nearest local sandy beaches along the edge of Portland Harbour are within a 10 minute walk. The large, scenic, main Weymouth beach is a 20/25 minute walk from the house, or a short drive. This beach has a long, wide expanse of very soft, light and clean sand. At the far end, (in the Greenhill area) the beach is covered with pebbles mostly.

Dogs are allowed with their owners along the whole of Weymouth beach from October/April generally. However, they are confined to one area May/September.

Travel:

Bournemouth and Exeter are the nearest airports. Trains run regularly to a variety of destinations to and from Weymouth Station. There is an excellent bus service running along the length of the scenic Jurassic Coast, which is very popular with both locals and visitors. There is also a very busy coach trips business based in Weymouth. Of course, there is also a local bus service running frequently, covering Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester etc. Try the 'open-top' bus Weymouth/Portland Bill!

Distances:

Weymouth Harbour...1 mile, 15/20 min walk

Abbotsbury - Village, Swannery and Sub-Tropical Gardens ...9.5 miles, 25mins drive

Lyme Regis.....28 miles, 1 hour's drive

Further Details:

This is an ideal area if you are interested in water sports/activities. Thanks to the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, we now have the National Sailing Academy nearby, as well as a water sports facility 5 minutes walk away. Windsurfing/kite surfing are also very popular in our area.

There are of course, local sandy beaches for children/adults as well as the main Weymouth Beach with it's many facilities/activities on offer.

There is plenty of countryside to explore surrounding the Weymouth area, especially if you are willing to drive short distances and walk when you get there! Places such as Abbotsbury Swannery (30/40 minute drive) and Hardy Monument amongst others, are always a pleasure to visit. Portland Bill is also a fantastic place, with or without dogs to walk.

There are also plenty of walking opportunities just on leaving 'Seaview' itself, and either heading in the direction of Portland......or Weymouth town; either way, a good proportion of the journey can be completed away from any roads or traffic, which HAS to be a good thing! There is information online about the 'Rodwell Trail', which can be accessed very close by.

Weymouth has no shortage of good restaurants (all budgets/types), pubs, clubs etc, many of which are around the harbour area. Many have outdoor seating especially in the warmer months, which often makes the harbour a lively, colourful place to be. Weymouth Harbour is also a very busy place early in the mornings, with fishing boats landing their catches daily.

Asda is the nearest large supermarket to 'Seaview', but there are also others available in the Weymouth area, including Tesco (Portland), Morrisons and Sainsburys.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: We aim to provide an attractive, comfortable and cosy get-away for our guests in a lovely part of Dorset, where the enclosed garden provides a peaceful place to relax and a safe place for children to play. The house is light and airy, and although there is carpet on the main stairs, all other areas in the house have 'hard' flooring, and are therefore easy to keep clean. The accommodation is fairly flexible, with 4 double bedrooms plus a large loft bedroom which itself can sleep up to 6. 3 of the 4 main bedrooms would also allow room for a travel cot or child's blow-up bed if you have these to bring with you. The kitchen is large, and is great if you enjoy 'family cooking' with everyone lending a hand! Please take a look at our availability calendar which is updated regularly, and our pricing before contacting us - Thank You. Outside: Secluded private garden with mature shrubs and trees. There is a patio with seating for 8 and a 2nd area with further seating and summer house. There is a large, modern 4-burner gas barbecue for guests' use in the summer, and a couple of small children's tables with sun umbrellas for use in the garden. Additional adult seating for outdoor use and a regular-sized fridge are both available in the summer house. We have a Regatta 2-person pop up tent with mats and sleeping bags available for use if occasional outdoor sleeping appeals to you! There is also a children's pop-up play tent, a striped beach/garden sun shelter and a waterproof picnic rug. There is a 'Little Tikes' sand and water tray, and a garden swingball set for adults and children alike to enjoy. Large 'snakes and ladders' is also available. To the front of the house, there is parking for 4/5 cars (with extra parking available if needed.) Utility Room: All 'utility room' items included within the large kitchen. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and bed linen for the size of each party (up to 12) included in the cost, as is fuel + wifi. There is of course a washing machine and dryer should you need to wash your towels/bedding during your stay. The house is attended by a regular gardener. Other: Dining area is open plan leading from kitchen and would seat 12 people across 2 tables. Small sitting room/study leads off the dining area with a Double Sofa Bed which can sleep 2. Loft room accessed by stairs from bedroom 1 which can also sleep 2 - 6

Great Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing! We booked for 7 adults, 6 kids (2 of which are babies) and 2 dogs

Booking and correspondence was easy, no problems at all

We arrived and were pleased the property was so lovely and large!

There were enough bedrooms (which were all a great size), 2 living rooms, 1 dining room and a very large kitchen. There was no need to take essentials (such as towels, washing up liquid etc) which saved packing space!

There was also a really great guide book which explained everything we needed to know

The garden was a massive hit with the kids and they enjoyed a lot of time out there

The area is fantastic too and a short walk to the lovely views!

We would all definitely return to this house as we enjoyed ourselves so much (strangely enough, the kids said their favourite part of the break was playing with the apples in the garden?!)

Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Hello Lauren, thank you so much for your lovely review of your recent stay at Seaview. Really very pleased that you all had such a great time whilst you were with us down here in Dorset :-) - and glad that the old apple tree could do its bit as well!! Those apples make great pies too...if you ever manage to find a few newly-fallen ones that is! We try to keep as much info available for incoming guests as possible in our guide book, as it's always a bit disorientating when you arrive somewhere new, so it's reassuring to hear that you found it helpful. The short walk to the lovely views across Portland Harbour , and down to the little local beaches at Sandsfoot are very popular with guests such as yourselves, and as you said, not far away from Seaview at all :-) We look forward to seeing you all again in the future....and thanks again!

Great Place to stay in Weymouth

  • 5 of 5

This is a great sized house for a small group wishing to stay in Weymouth, it is within a short taxi ride to the main life, and has always been a very clean and up to date presented house, ample parking and facilities within the house and garden area weather permitting.

We have used the house as a sleeping point for weekends over a few years and have always been made very welcome, I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Steve, for taking the time to review your recent stay at Seaview. Having made several annual fishing trips to Weymouth now, we're pleased that your (usual) group number of around 10 finds us a suitable place to return to still :-) We're always pleased to have you and your group staying at Seaview, Steve - and look forward to your next visit :-)

Lovely house and garden, everything we wanted. The BBQ and decking area was ideal.

  • 5 of 5

The bedrooms and bathrooms were great. The kids loved the garden. Loads of seats for everyone. Lots of things to play with at the house. Lots of games. All the cleaning stuff is there. They have really made sure you have everything you need. Sue that owns the property is very nice and helpful. There's a lovely little walk down to the sandy cove and a nice cafe. Which do great toasties. I would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: Hi Carole, thank you very much for writing a lovely review of your recent stay at Seaview, Weymouth. So pleased you all found plenty to do whilst you were in Weymouth, and also glad that you enjoyed visiting the very local sandy coves, which are just a few minutes walk away from the house. I spent much of my childhood on these local beaches, so they hold great memories for me, for sure :-) The cafe within Sandsfoot Castle and Gardens is small, but very popular with both locals and visitors, and has outside seating, which is great on a sunny day; didn't realise they do toasties there - I'll have to wander over there myself and try them out! Thanks again for your compliments Carole, Best wishes, Sue

Amazing holiday in a great house!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic holiday in a superb house which had everything we needed for our party of 10. Wine on arrival was a lovely touch, plenty of games and books for the children. The garden was lovely and safe for the children to play in which they loved. Thanks Sue and Noel, hopefully see you again

A fabulous home in a great location for exploring Dorset.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time inside this wonderful house and garden just as much as we enjoyed lovely Dorset. It was beautifully spacious, modern and we'll equipped. Close to Monkey world,, the Tank Museum,, Lulworth cove and Durdle door and the Jurassic coast at Charmouth. We would like to have stayed longer and would love to return. Sue and Noel were very kind and welcoming too.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christine for taking the time to review your recent stay at Seaview. We're always very pleased of course to hear that guests have enjoyed themselves when they visit us in Weymouth - and it's always great to know that visitors have taken full advantage of our lovely location as well, as you obviously did. You've mentioned some of the visitor attractions a short car journey from Weymouth, and there are obviously many more on offer which you just didn't have time to fit into your 4 night stay :-) As you know we're very close to local sandy beaches, sea and areas of natural interest as well - so there's plenty to do without even having to use the car once guests have arrived at Seaview. We look forward to your return Christine :-) Thank you.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Booking Notes: Please enquire personally regarding rates for periods of less than 7 nights at Seaview. The automatically generated rates on the site may well be incorrect, as we take several factors into consideration when arriving at a customised quote; it's not just a matter of taking a rate and multiplying it by the number of nights - so please ask.
25% as an initial non refundable payment, and the remainder due 6 weeks before the period of renting. We prefer internet bank transfers as method of payment because it is quick and reliable, but we are also happy to take cheques. We are NOT able to accept card payments or PayPal payments. On receipt of the deposit, you will receive the booking confirmation by email.
It would be appreciated if you could check our up-to-date availability calendar and pricing before getting in touch. Thank you.

Changeover Day:
Usually changeover day would be Saturday, although we are very flexible with this. We do take bookings other than for weekly periods. Please ask for a quote. Arrival time would be after 4pm and departure time by 10am.

Notes on prices:
We have recently reviewed our prices and these are now current for 2016 and 2017!
Seaview is a very versatile house, and can be enjoyed by a couple as much as by a party of 12!
We can quote for weekend/short stays at any time of the year if requested. As a guideline, a 3-night Friday - Monday weekend stay could cost slightly more than half the cost of a week in the same period.
There are no additional fuel charges - all is included in the price quoted.
