A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an idyllic week at Gully Cottage. The house is so well equipped which makes the experience relaxing and trouble free. The Rayburn keeps the house toasty warm and the open fire was a luxurious treat! The instant access to the beach (but safely gated off so no need to worry about the children escaping) was perfect - I even ventured out in my PJs to capture pictures of the sunrise on our last day. The perfect location for exploring Weymouth, Lulworth and further afield this really was one of our best ever family weeks away. Thank you Sue for making it all so easy and for being so friendly and welcoming.

Super Easter

  • 5 of 5

Warm and cosy, well equipped cottage in a fantastic location on the SW coast path. Great walking in both directions. Access to the beach from the bottom of the garden. Friendly and welcoming hosts. A perfect weekend away. Thankyou so much. Can recommend The Smugglers in Osmington for a dinner out too.

Excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house so much we have booked for next year, beautiful surroundings, very near to Weymouth and so much to do nearby.

There are beautiful coastal paths with WW11 treasures dotted along the way.

The house was equipped with everything I needed and spotlessly clean, superb value for money.

The owners were so warm and welcoming and were always at hand in case I needed anything.

I would highly recommend staying here and booking early

fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a week in January, what a wonderful location. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need, clean, warm and homely. Literally yards from the beach! The garden was completely secure for the dogs, with additional grassed area for them to run around. A lovely welcome from the owners looking forward to a week next January.
