Why Jacqui & Nick Barwood chose Weymouth and Portland District
We loved this property because we have a passion for older buildings. We took it on when it was part renovated and we took over the renovations and removed a few walls to put the house back to its original room sizes. The house is well located as it is very close to the beach and only a 5-10 minute walk into town and up to the harbour.
What makes this House unique
Stay at Seaside House and the car can be parked for the entire week! Proximity to the beach Plenty of bathrooms - queuing for s shower is not part of the planned activities! Fabulously large dining table enabling great social meals A separate TV room for the kids!!

A spacious and well equipped house close to the front.
We were a party of eight staying for a long weekend to celebrate my 70th birthday. The house is spacious with a well equipped kitchen and a great dining room. We cooked on a couple of evenings and it was great fun. Large sitting room on the first floor running the full width of the house. Great place for a family gathering.
Perfect house for a large group
Really well equipped and a great location. We had a brilliant holiday.
Beautiful, spacious house with everything that you need.
The house is amazing! Lots of rooms spread out over a number of floors. Huge kitchen/dining area. Perfect for 10 of us enjoying a family weekend. Fantastic location as we could walk to beach, shops and attractions. We have visited this house for 4 consecutive years, it is very well maintained and has little extras that make all the difference.
Gorgeous well equipped house which was perfectly situated x
Lovely, spacious property. Very comfortable and well equipped.
Had a lovely weekend with friends 6/7 October. The house is brilliantly positioned close to the beach and only a 10 minute walk to the shops. Couldn't really fault anything. We go away every year as a group and this was definately the best house yet. Thank you.
Comfortable and a very good location
