The Stables (Dorset) holiday home details

If you’re coming away as a large family group or with a number of friends, The Stables is an ideal retreat, sleeping eight in total and with plenty of space for you to all stretch out in. The Stables makes the most of its location on Wears Farm, a property situated in the rolling hills of the Dorset countryside, yet close to the village of Abbotsbury and the famous Chesil Beach.

There are large picture windows in both of the living areas, perfect if you want to just relax on the sofas and admire the views. The property is light and airy, and you’ll find delightful touches throughout, such as a king size sleigh bed in the master bedroom and a 55” Smart television in the main sitting room. It’s the perfect place to come home to after a day out exploring the glorious surrounding countryside. The second living area or ‘snug’ has a television and a selection of DVDs. A french door leads to the enclosed garden and terrace with wooden table and chairs. Upstairs are three further bedrooms, one with a king sized sleigh bed and en-suite, one double room and one twin room. There is also a family bathroom. All beds are dressed with Egyptian cotton sheets and goose feather and down duvets and pillows.

Also available to book at this location are The Cow Byre (sleeping 6) and The Grain Store (sleeping 8).

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • The Stables is in walking distance of the coastline and there are plenty of beaches and iconic coastal attractions to visit. Why not start with Chesil Beach? This fascinating shingle bar stretches an incredible 18 miles and is separated from the mainland for much of that length by the Fleet Lagoon.
  • The nearby village of Abbotsbury winds along a spectacular part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Abbotsbury is a beautiful village, well appointed with two pubs, local shops and tearooms. Popular attractions include the Swannery, the Children's Farm and the Subtropical Gardens.
  • Another iconic landmark is Durdle Door, a limestone arch that juts out into the sea. The path down to the sea is a bit steep, but the views are breathtaking.
  • Just along from Durdle Door is Lulworth Cove, a natural feature that has been slowly eroded into its present shape by the action of the waves. The cove can be very popular at high season, so try to arrive at the start or the end of the day.
  • All these landmarks are part of the Jurassic Coast, England’s first World Heritage site. The rocks here contain many examples of fossils, from trilobites to dinosaurs, and people have been flocking here to see what they could unearth since the Victorian times. You can stroll along the coastline by yourself hoping to find something, or sign up to a Fossil Walk.
  • You’ll find plenty of walks and footpaths in the countryside around The Stables, but sometimes it’s worth giving yourself an objective to aim for. We recommend the Hardy Monument, a 72-foot high monument on the summit of Black Down. They say on a clear day you can see five counties from here.
  • To the east is the popular seaside town of Weymouth, with its Georgian seafront, 17th century harbour, Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower, Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides.
  • The county town of Dorchester is only a 20 minute drive away with its large selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, museums and two cinemas.
