On the Dorset coastal path overlooking Weymouth Bay – a lovely spot for Jurassic Coast walking and crystal-clear swimming.
Peter and Wendy have transformed this 1920s house and their style reflects their penchant for natural materials and country life. It’s set in four acres of terraced gardens with Italianate overtones, that have been created by Wendy, a garden designer. Find strong structured evergreen ‘cloud’ pruned and clipped shrubs, exotic plants, swaying grasses, huge terracotta pots bursting with colour… a complete wildlife sanctuary. Bedrooms always have flowers too; one has a door onto the garden, while from the other you can watch the sun setting over the sea.
Enjoy a breakfast of homemade bread, marmalade and jams, seasonal fruit salad and a full English, then wander down to the secluded beach below for a turquoise sea swim or a bracing picnic.
