    Lovely quiet cottage situated in an elevated position on the old Roman Road out of Weymouth leading to Dorchester. Some views leading to Weymouth are accessible from the outdoor elevated sun terrace. The Ridge way is no longer a through road and apart from the 16th century public house 40 meters across the road it is a most peaceful retreat.

    The property benefits from only being 20 years old however there are many features which give it an original feel from perhaps 200 years ago. These include oak beams, wooden floors, worn flag stones, open fireplace etc.

    It contains 3 bedrooms for renting over off peak periods with 4 beds available from Easter time and into the Summer. These are arranged over 3 floors, one being an en-suite loft room with restricted headroom. This can be arranged as a double or twin. There are a further 2 double bedrooms on the first floor one containing a king sized double, and a slightly smaller third bedroom containing a standard size double bed. The property can facilitate up to 6 adults to sleep or 8 when at full capacity. A main bathroom on this floor has a shower / bath arrangement. Downstairs there is a comprehensive kitchen, lounge/diner, entrance lobby and further WC. All areas are well finished and furnished. The kitchen is fully fitted with concealed appliances. Integrated washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer are available. A 5 ring glass hob and electric fan assisted oven are included with a further combination microwave oven set at head height complimenting the cooking facilities. Everything is available for 6 to 8 people to enjoy this little hideaway. Warm weather will allow Al Fresco dining in the rear garden area where 8 or more can easily be accommodated for meals and use of the supplied BBQ.

    Parking for 2 cars on the driveway is available. Visitors becoming avid patrons of the local Pub (The Old Ship Inn) over the road will be welcomed to use their free car park. Further on street parking is available for car owners with good handbrakes!!!!. Our village isn't called 'Upwey' without reason. Some outdoor secure storage areas are available for bicycles and sporting equipment with 2 mountain bikes often being available for use.

    The surrounding areas allow some beautiful walks and cycling into the Dorset countryside. Weymouth town centre is 4 miles away and contains a beautiful harbour, beach and sea front. Dorchester our famous Roman county town is also 4 miles away in the opposite direction. Both towns are have good public transport (rail and bus) links from Upwey.

    With some good weather to enjoy the outdoor areas 'Vitality Cottage' is a most relaxing gem set in a quiet Dorset village. For winter bookings the property has the advantage of modern warm and damp free construction, double glazing, central heating throughout and a traditional open fire (gas) in the living room which all bodes well for cosy days and nights reading or in front of the flat-screen TV's (3 in total) and state of the art entertainment and computer system in the lounge

    Whatever the season our village has plenty of hospitality to offer on its doorstep or more widely in the local towns and countryside
