Within the popular seaside town of Weymouth, we are just 2-3 miles away from the resort’s gorgeous beach and picturesque harbour. The National Sailing Academy (Portland) is only 4 miles away.

We are an excellent base for many nearby activities and attractions. There are fantastic areas in abundance only short drive away: The Cobb – Lyme Regis, Corfe Castle, Durdle Door, Broadchurch – West Bay are just a few.

Charles and Sharon Duthie-Smith would like to offer you a warm welcome and a pleasant stay at either of their cottages – The Stables or The Barn.


Both buildings have been carefully restored to a high standard offering extreme comfort to all. We are very proud to say both our cottages have been awarded four stars and Gold award by the Quality in Tourism Accreditation, as well as M1 and M2 in the National Accessible Scheme – suitable for guests in wheelchair – (see our accessibility page for further details). But our best testimonies are from our guests. By reading our Euans Guide reviews and reviews on Tripadvisor you can really find out what guests thought about their stay with us.

We hope we have thought of almost everything to make our holiday cottages as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
