  • Quaint stone and cob cottage, a peaceful retreat with the convenience of a pub and shop under half a mile away
  • Perfectly situated to discover the beautiful Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site
  • Ideal location for cyclists and walkers to enjoy Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Property code: DC078

A charming little retreat for two sitting within the pretty coastal village of Preston, well-appointed to discover Weymouth and the picturesque Jurassic Coast with all its attractions.

Originally part of a farmhouse, this ancient stone and cob cottage is shielded by trees as it sits back from the main road leading into Weymouth, offering a peaceful location to be enjoyed. Head out on foot to visit the local pubs and independent village shops or follow the main road taking you to Weymouth, located just 3.5 miles away. Weymouth is home to a whole host of incredible attractions; you could easily spend your days in the picturesque seaside town. From the cliffside ruins of Sandsfoot Castle to the stunning Greenhill Gardens and the tranquil nature preserve of RSPB Radipole Lake, the options are truly endless. After a day of exploration, retreat to one of the many eateries or welcoming pubs.

Step inside the stable door into a hallway offering space for coats and boots after a day of discovering the great outdoors. Make your way into the kitchen area, a traditional farmhouse space that is compact yet well-equipped with all the amenities you’ll need throughout your seaside break. After you’ve cooked up a hearty meal, head to the homely open-plan lounge and dining area to relax before firing up the wood burner and curling up on the sofa for an evening in front of the Smart TV. When the day is done, head up the open tread stairs to the eaves of the cottage where you will find a welcoming double bedroom and bathroom complete with bath and shower overhead, perfect for long hot soaks after a day along the coast. Please note, there is reduced head height under the eaves in the bedroom.

Outside, make your way down a few steps from the parking area to enjoy the sloping garden complete with pretty lawn and shrubs. Enjoy a spot of al fresco dining in the gravelled seating area or start your day with a morning coffee as you enjoy the peace and quiet of village life. There’s an outbuilding which houses a freezer and washing machine, in addition to generous off-road parking for one car.

Honeypot Cottage was delightful, well equipped and cosy. A convenient location for exploring this part of Dorset & set back from the road so passing traffic couldnt be heard

The actual cottage was comfortable but we could have done without all the plastic plants in pots on windowsills. Was out of keeping with character of cottage.

We had a lovely time in Honeypot Cottage. This was planned to be a final getaway before having our baby in June, but due to lockdown it ended up being our first little holiday with our 11 week old! The cottage is very cute and had everything we needed. We cooked dinner there every night and we loved using the wood burner in the chillier evenings. CRead moreomfy bed, good shower. Lots of things to visit nearby, lots of nice local walks and short drive to Durdle Door. Hide

The Honeypot cottage is a lovely, cosy and quaint little cottage. It suited us perfectly with lots of charm.

Pleasant secluded and quiet cottage just off a main road. Easy walking access to coast and 2 miles from Weymouth. Useful local amenities within a couple of minutes walk (Co-Op, Spar, pubs and 2 fish & chips shops). Cozy and peaceful cottage. Very quiet. All you need for a relaxing holiday.

Honeypot cottage is well situated for exploring the surrounding area with a bus stop just across the road that takes you into Weymouth every 15 minutes and two pubs within 150 mtrs of the cottage.

We had a lovely week at Honeypot cottage. When it was booked we mentioned that it was a 60th birthday and when we arrived there was a bottle of Prossecco and a birthday card - how thoughtful and kind! Also a cake and a pint of milk in the fridge.

Cottage is perfect size for two and has everything you need. Its in a good location for visiting the main attractions of the Dorset coast. It is situated on a main road and although set back & hidden from view, there is some road noise when sat out in the garden.
