    About this property

    Enjoy all that Weymouth and the local area have to offer from this lovely holiday property, ideally suited for families looking for a seaside holiday.

    This delightful Grade II listed house, built in 1865, is situated in Nottington, on the outskirts of the popular seaside resort of Weymouth. It is an excellent holiday home for a large family or two families to enjoy this lovely part of Dorset. It offers ample accommodation with a large living room, four bedrooms with three being en-suite, and a large garden to relax and unwind in; perhaps with a barbecue when you return from your day out exploring. Its location is ideal for going into Weymouth and spending a day on its award-winning sandy beach, visiting Sea Life Aquarium and Tower, enjoying a boating trip with some fishing, or even a day trip to the Channel Islands.

    On your doorstep, take in some breathtaking scenery on the nearby Chesil Beach and famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and enjoy some superb coastal walking and call in on some wonderful seaside locations, such as Lulworth Cove, Burton Bradstock, West Bay (scene of the TV series ’Broadchurch’) and on to the lovely character seaside resort of Lyme Regis. Within easy driving, the nearby Monkey World will provide great family fun, as will the Bovington Tank Museum with its wonderful live displays. Also, visit Corfe Castle, the West Swanage Steam Railway and much more. Dorchester with its many museums, shops and restaurants is close by, or further afield, Poole and Bournemouth have a lot to offer. Fishing available nearby. Beach 2 miles.

    "Beautiful cottage, very spacious and luxurious it was an absolute pleasure to be able to stay here and we cant wait to return. It has such a cosy and homely feel about it, furnishings and features of an exceptionally high standard and set within beautiful gardens safe for children and animals to run free. Our only regret was that we hadnt been able to stay longer, we would highly recommend this cottage to others."

    "The cottage proved to be ideal for our use. The only minor issue was that there are a number of small faults which have reported in comments from from previous guests over the last 18 months and which have still not been addressed."
    Patricia ‐ 15 Sep 2018
    "This cottage is fine but let down badly by a series of faults, each one minor but overall adding up to a feeling that both the owner and the local support staff don't care about the property. This is why I have only given it a 3 rating.As evidence, all these faults have been noted in the guest comments book in the cottage itself (some from many months back) but never acted on, so clearly no point in writing anything in there. A prime example is the fact that the front door handle is loose and easily dislodged from its working position (& falls off easily if you pull it)! This means that if you are inside the building and the outside handle is slightly dislodged then you can't open the door to get out! An obvious safety hazard.Other examples are the broken lid on the kitchen rubbish bin, the wonky toilet roll holder in on of the bathrooms, the BBQs unusable (dirty), the lack of information on how & when to deal with recyling and rubbish. If the owner were to spend a small amount of money replacing/repairing the various broken items future renters would be much more satisfied than I am."

    "We all really enjoyed the holiday,we have been before,and will go again. Close to weymouth were there's plenty to do. The house is very well equipped they have thought of everything,and the kids love it for hide& seek."

    "I would stay at April’s cottage again, it was in a good location for us and met our requirements in terms of rooms, accepted dogs, parking for 4 cars. However there were quite a few negatives which could easily be rectified. Negatives:1) only 1 tea towel, this had already been highlighted more than once in the book onsite but nothing done about it. 2) garden needed more attention - lots of weeds, overgrown on steps3) blocked drains - we spoke to caretaker about this but nothing done about it4) blood on bed sheet & mattress protector!! Told caretaker and nothing done about that either 5) poisonous plants at back of garden!! Unacceptable. We had to buy a fitted sheet and tea towels from local supermarket as caretaker didn’t bother doing anything about this when we spoke to them. Left msg for owner too (number in final details e-mail) but was also ignored"

    "No hot water on the Friday seems to have been an on going problem with previous guests needed more clearer information in cottage handbook to help but plumber did sort out problem quickly gardens and front of cottage were in need of a lot of attention not like photos on website which was very disappointing as all the other places we have stayed in have been lovely it’s a shame as if these things had been done it would have been really great sorry but this one did not have the same standard as the others"

    "Our second stay at April's Cottage, first time in the summer so really noticed how neglected the garden is. The house is spacious and great for an extended family. I would say it needs a bit of tlc as nothing updated from last winter . However, kitchen great, beds comfy, good no. of bathrooms. Loads of parking and quiet location but short car journey to supermarkets. The cleaning is adequate not assiduous and there is very little provided (first time I have had to buy cleaning stuff in a holiday house!). If you are not expecting luxury but want space, this cottage would be OK"

    "Aprils cottage was very spacious for 6 of us and was in a private lane with plenty of parking. The welcome gift was great and the number of bathrooms a real bonus for a large group. Our only criticism would be that the website states pub and restaurant within 1 mile but that is not the case (well we couldn't find one!) as the nearest one has closed down so we think that should be corrected to avoid disappointment. Overall, lovely stay."

    "We had a lovely three days at the cottage which was spoilt when one of the kitchen chairs collapsed on the last evening, fortunately the person, a 76 year old, fell sideways and although bruised was not seriously hurt. It could have been a different story if he had fallen backwards and hit his head on the stone floor. There was another chair that was also in danger of collapsing. We informed the caretaker and hopefully the problem has been resolved as we would like to go back again. Lovely accommodation for an elderly but fit group especially as each bedroom had its own facilities."

    "This is a beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable house. We were seven up and it had plenty of room and bathrooms for everyone. The rooms were warm and comfortable, the cottage is very pretty and the garden is perfect for children and secure for dogs. The location wasn't ideal for us as walkers. Nottington lane doesn't have pavements and the closest public footpath was a dice with death to reach and even then not especially inspiring. Of course not a problem if one prefers to drive out sight-seeing.Within close distance are many lovely places to visit. We enjoyed Weymouth and drove over to Charmouth along the Jurassic coast road to do some fossil hunting. Althehampton was charming and worth a visit (dog-friendly gardens).All in all a lovely week.Note: the woodburner is currently not connected so don't book based on a cosy night by the fire!"

    "This is a charming cottage with plenty of room and a very large homely kitchen. Having two stairways was a bonus as upstairs could be accessed without waking the children. The garden was large which was great for the young ones to play but it is not secure as far as dogs go, ours could not be left out there unsupervised. The level of equipment was brilliant and we would definitely stay there again."
    Tim ‐ 23 Mar 2018
    "Very satisfied in all regards - even laid on some snow for added novelty value."
    FOULKES ‐ 11 Feb 2018
    "My family and I love this cottage. It is so comfortable and spacious. What we love most of all is the peaceful location. It has a huge lounge but we spent most of our time in the kitchen, the heart of the cottage. This was our second stay in just a few months and we will definitely be back again :) q"
