Practicalities

Please note that the property is laid out over 4 floors with the sitting room on the 1st floor. There is however a full shower room on the ground floor and the ground floor family room can be used as a bedroom where necessary.

There are 2 steps up to both the front door and the rear French doors into the kitchen

The house is well equipped for children of all ages and there is both a full cot and two travel cots to use during your stay. In addition, there are 2 highchairs, booster seats and toys suitable for toddlers, which means that you don’t need to completely fill the car with babies’ or children’s bits and pieces!

For older children, there are games and puzzles as well as a separate ground floor family room equipped with large flat screen TV, video and XBox 360. The room is tucked away at the rear of the house and has its own access into the outside courtyard


Living Space

Main Living room - This high ceilinged sitting room is at the front of the house, on the first floor. It is a bright and spacious room with bay window to the front. It is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs providing a relaxing place to unwind.

The room also has the benefit of a 40 inch flat screen TV, BluRay DVD player, and hifi system with Ipod dock.

Play Room - There is also a separate play room on the ground floor which comes equipped with 32 inch flat screen TV, video player, XBox 360 games console and sofa. There is also a revolving 3 way games table with table football, air hockey and pool. The room also can be used as a single bedroom with an adjoining shower room.


Kitchen & Dining

For many, one of the main hearts of a house is the kitchen. This is certainly so at Seaside House, with the spacious modern kitchen providing the hub between the outside courtyard and the equally spacious dining room accessed direct from the kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped and includes:

8 burner gas range cooker with 2 electric ovens & separate grill
Coffee maker and espresso machine
Food processor, toaster and kettle
Microwave oven
Large American style fridge freezer with automatic icemaker and separate drinks chiiler compartment

There is also a plentiful supply of pots pans utensils bowls etc to ensure that you really can cook almost anything during your stay.

Outside there is an outdoor table and chairs to ensure that you can make the most of warm and balmy days on the coast.

Adjoining the kitchen and accessed via interconnecting double doors is the dining room. This room has a large modern ash table which seats 12 people comfortably. There is also sufficient crockery cutlery serving dishes and glasses to accommodate even the largest groups


Kids & Equipment

With 3 children of our own, we know how stressful holidays can become if the children’s requirements are not met. We also know how difficult t can be to travel with everything needed, particularly for toddlers and babies.

That’s why we have tried to include a variety of things to make your stay easy. As well as the well equipped family room, you will also find (if you need them):

Full dropside cot and bedding (by request)
2 X Travel cots
2 X High chairs
Child booster seat
Toddler chair

                  Kayaking is fun!!! Some of the safest waters in the UK are at hand for novice and experienced sea kayaking and canoeing. There are plenty of bays and coves to explore with a variety of conditions from a gentle paddle along the coast to white water waves

                  Canoeists and Kayakers can enjoy the wonderful scenery of Dorset's designated World Heritage Coastline and what better way to explore it than from the sea. Novices can practice their skills in the safe arms of Portland Harbour, protected from the elements and tidal flows. Find tranquility with a gentle paddle along the fleet from Ferrybridge although we recommend that you consult a tide table as it can get very shallow at low tide.

                  With a strong easterly wind the bay of Weymouth, Overcombe Corner and Bowleaze Cove can produce a good swell for the more extreme kayakers wishing to challenge the elements with a spot of surfing.

                  Easily accessible safe launching facilities, canoe clubs and hire services available. During the planning of your trip please make yourself aware of all the local hazards to canoeists including tidal streams and currents. Always check the weather forecast. For your safety please inform the Coastguard, relative or friend when you embark on a canoeing or kayaking trip and give an estimated time of return.

                  For those with young children then the beach is always a hive of activities with very traditional fairground rides on the beach and even donkey rides. t

                  There are regular beach activities and competitions taking place including sand sculpting ones.
