Blacksmith’s Cottage (ref UK10211) and Carpenters Cottage (ref UK10239) are two cottages located next door to each other in the popular area of Upwey in the Georgian seaside town of Weymouth, Dorset. They are newly built cottages, constructed in 2018, on land that was once used by the owner’s grandfather for his workshop. He could turn his hand to anything from carpentry, wheel wrights, metal works, painting and electrical. In fact there are very few if any, buildings in the village of Upwey that the owner’s grandfather has not worked on in the past. Over time the workshops had become run down and so the decision was made to redevelop the land with the construction of Blacksmith’s Cottage and Carpenters Cottage. Reflecting the owner’s grandfather’s love of carpentry and wood, the cottages are timber framed and their names have been chosen to echo the prior use of the land. Both properties offer countryside views from the front, as well as great walks. They are also on the main bus routes to explore Dorset while leaving the car behind. Weymouth itself boasts an award-winning golden sandy beach, picturesque harbour and ideally positioned along the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. A perfect spot for couples and families wanting to explore the beautiful surrounding areas of Dorset.The UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast is on your doorstep offering highlights such as Chesil Beach, whilst Abbotsbury, West Bay, Bridport, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are slightly further away. The Jurassic Coast is home to more than 300 coastal walks offering some breathtaking views across the 200 million year old shoreline. Dorset’s county town, Dorchester, is known as Thomas Hardy’s town and is home to Roman relics, Brewery Square and the pioneering, architectural royal develeopment of Poundbury. Take a trip to the Isle of Portland, host to the 2012 Olympic sailing events, and home to the world-famous National Sailing Academy. Chocolate box villages can be admired in many areas of Dorset. The swannery at Abbotsbury provides the opportunity to observe the resident colony of mute swans, which has been in existence since the 14th century. From late May, visitors can walk around the nesting area, observing the cygnets at close quarters. Another attraction at Abbotsbury are the sub-tropical gardens, which flourish in a site protected from the cold winds. Here you can find species rare to Britain, such as Japanese camellias and Casucasian wingnut. Other attractions close by include Monkey World, Bovington Tank Museum, Milton Abbey, Athelhampton House and the National Trust’s Corfe Castle. Slightly further afield, you can visit Swanage, Poole and Poole Quay. Poole harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world, and from here you can take the ferry to Sandbanks or Brownsea Island Nature Reserve with its red squirrels. Why not also take a ferry and visit the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey? Lyme Regis is also another hot spot to visit, known locally as the ’pearl of Dorset’, and is a great place for searching for fossils found in the cliffs and along the beach. If you love golf, Dorset’s Camedown Golf Course is just 2 miles away, and where the Ryder Cup was started. Beach 4 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.Blacksmith’s Cottage (ref UK10211) and Carpenters Cottage (ref UK10239) can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.
