Travel cot and highchair. Welcome pack. ¾-acre natural unspoilt garden with sitting out area and garden furniture. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note There are 3 steps from the back door to the rear of the property.\n Fossils’ End is a single-storey barn conversion ideal for a rural retreat within the heart of the Dorset countryside. Accessed via a rough track the property is located in Chickerell close to the Georgian town of Weymouth which boasts a golden sandy beach picturesque harbour and is ideally positioned along the UNESCO Jurassic Coastline. It borders the owners’ home and is perfect for couples family and friends who wish to enjoy the beautiful surrounding area of Dorset. The name Fossils’ End derives itself from local fossils that were found in nearby Dorset villages which have been entwined into the barn including a sea anemone found in Nottington and a petrified wood fossil found in nearby Charminster. The property offers an open plan living space with electric fire and French doors opening on to the front of the property with a large unspoilt garden not enclosed. The rear of the property offers some lovely Dorset countryside views and walking areas.\nThe UNESCO Jurassic Coastline is 3 miles away with highlights such as Chesil Beach to explore while Abbotsbury West Bay Bridport Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are slightly further away. The Jurassic Coastline is home to over 300 coastal country walks offering some breath taking views over Dorset’s 200 million year old shoreline. The county town known as Thomas Hardy’s town of Dorchester is home to Roman relics Brewery Square and the pioneering architectural royal development of Poundbury. Take a trip to the Isle of Portland host to the 2012 Olympic Games and home to the world famous National Sailing Academy.\nHeading out west from Chickerell is a delight where the outstanding views and ‘chocolate-box’ villages can be admired. 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 Caucasian wingnut.\nIt’s a great location with so many popular tourist attractions close by including Monkey World Bovington Tank Museum and the National Trust’s Corfe Castle all of which all make great family days out. 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 take the ferry for the day to 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. Beach 3 miles. Shop pub and restaurant ¾ mile. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10634070.jpg UK10051

    A lovely barn conversion offering single floor accessibility (and it's dog friendly!). Well kitted out with good facilities and grounds. Nicely positioned just outside of Weymouth for good access to most tourist attractions/sites within 45mins car journey (even with local congestion hotspots).

    We have had such a wonderful holiday at Fossils End. The cottage was very comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need. It has wonderful space outside for the children to play and within close reach of all the attractions in Weymouth. Thoroughly recommend!

    A fantastic place to stay, very private and secluded, a wonderful Get Away place to stay, relax and unwind. Great for Dogs too, a lovely space to play and have fun, 3 miles from the beach so close to everything Weymouth has to offer.

    Really enjoyed our stay here. Fossil's End had a well-equipped kitchen, a good open plan living area and two spacious bedrooms. It was perfect for our first family holiday, being in a very quiet area but also just a 5 minute drive to various shops. It's in a great location for exploring the Jurassic Coast, with Durdle door a 30 minute drive to the east, and Golden Cap 30 minutes to the west. Weymouth and Portland are on the doorstep too.

    A real gem of a cottage, location, host and holiday! Beautiful setting and so airy and light. Our dog enjoyed exploring the garden and we enjoyed just sitting and looking at the views! Helen is a lovely host and the apple cake and tea was very welcome! Perfect place to explore the Dorset coastline! We will be back again soon

    A really good find! Spacious and well-equipped barn conversion in a quiet and secluded location. Nice big garden area for our Springer to have a good root and toot around. Easy to walk to local village where we enjoyed some good meals and ales at The Turk's Head' Helen has made this place a real home from home, and even left us a wonderful home-made apple cake for our arrival which was delicious :-). We were blessed with amazing weather (for February at least!) and enjoyed nearby visits to the Jurassic coastline. If/when we return to the area, Fossils End will be our first property to check for availibilty.

    We enjoyed our stay at Fossils End a very quiet and secluded location. We received a nice welcome from Helen when we arrived. The cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed for us and lots of extras for doggy. The welcome pack was lovely and the homemade cake was delicious. We hope to return in the future, thank you for a lovely week.
