Magnolia Cottage is a beautiful and welcoming three-bedroom semi-detached cottage built from local stone and brick. It gets its name from the magnificent Magnolia tree in the cottage style garden that it is truly beautiful when in bloom.

The cottage is located on the corner of Wyke Oliver Rd and Preston Rd (B3155) a main thoroughfare into Weymouth, just 2 miles to Weymouth Town Centre, Harbour and Award-Winning Sandy Beach, an ideal spot for a family holiday or couples alike. Weymouth is situated on The World Heritage Jurassic Coast which stretches for 96 miles along the south coast. It has many attractions to offer during your stay including The Sea Life Centre, Fantasy Island theme park, Weymouth Harbour and the 3 miles of Weymouth’s fabulous sandy beach. Why not enjoy a stroll along the sea front and stop for lunch or dinner in one of the many eateries Weymouth has to offer or you may want to take a stroll to the RSPB Lodmoor, home to an abundance of wildlife or to the Jurassic Coast Activities centre for the more adventurous members of the family. Weymouth has so much to offer and there really is something for everyone to enjoy!


When you arrive at the cottage, you enter via the porch, an ideal area to store those muddy walking boots or buckets and spades. The sitting room is cosy and comfortable with a stone fire place and a multi-fuel burning stove, 3- piece suite, smart TV (FreeSat and Netflix). By the large patio windows, you will find a dining area flooded with natural light and views of the garden, a large dining table to seat 6 people and toy chest with a selection of jigsaw puzzles and games. A great spot to relax after a busy day exploring and enjoying the great outdoors. The cosy yet spacious master bedroom with king-size bed is located on the first floor along with a small double bedroom and family bathroom with walk-in shower and WC. There is a comfortable ground floor double bedroom and a modern ground floor bathroom with shower over full-size bath and WC.

If you can tear yourself away from all that the cottage and Weymouth has to offer, why not take a short drive to the world-famous Isle of Portland, Portland castle and Portland Bill. Or to the West side of Weymouth, where you can find the picturesque village of Abbotsbury, with its Sub-Tropical Gardens, Swannery, Tithe Barn, children’s farm and tea rooms. Maybe you could venture a little further afield to the Saxon walled town of Wareham where you will find many more eateries, weekly farmers market and a lovely quay. A little further on towards the Isle of Purbeck and Swanage you will find Corfe Castle, the charming Dorset village with a ruined castle for you to explore.

If sandy beaches are the main reason for your family holiday, Dorset has many to offer. Weymouth with its miles of golden sand and safe swimming water is tough to beat, but why not seek out some other sandy havens that are only a short distance away. Studland, Sandbanks, Bournemouth, Swanage are all within a car journey and be sure to catch a traditional seaside Punch and Judy show at Swanage and Weymouth!

Facilities: 3 Bedrooms: ground floor Double Bedroom, Ground floor Bathroom with Shower over full-sized bath, & WC. First floor King-size & Double Bedroom. First floor Bathroom with large walk-in shower cubicle & WC. Living/dining room: Open plan with seating for 6, wood burner (starter logs supplied), Smart TV.

It is advisable to turn around in the parking area and drive out forwards.

Pamela - September, 2023 04/10/2023
We can't recommend Magnolia Cottage highly enough, we had a great time there as a base for our days out and felt very much at home thanks to the efforts of the owners. If we could give the owners of this cottage 20 out of 10, we would!

The cleanliness was absolutely outstanding and the cottage is very well-equipped with everything you could possible need. Thoughtful additions such as a good stock of sachets of quality branded coffee and tea bags, milk in the fridge and lovely biscuits on arrival made us feel immediately at home when we arrived after a long drive from Kent.

We'd also added a note to our booking that we had a birthday during our stay and the owners had very kindly left a birthday cake and put up a happy birthday banner, which was such a nice gesture, a great reflection of how thoughtful the owners are in terms of their guests feeling welcome and enjoying their stay.

The location is great, with Weymouth a short drive but also walkable if you're feeling energetic (but also very easy to park at the Pvillin carp park), and Overcombe beach is just 15 mins walk from the cottage, from where you can then walk on to Bowleze Cove (there's a nice outdoor bar there serving both drinks and food, with deckchairs overlooking the sea) or hop onto the South West Coast path and enjoy the magnificent views.

The cottage is a great base for many of the key places to visit, including Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, etc. We parked at Durdle door and walked to Lulworth Cove, but if you're less mobile or the kids grumble too much (as its quite a hike back up the hill from Lulworth Cove!) then the car park ticket for one is valid also for tthe other, if you prefer to drive between them. Further out you have the abandined village of Tyneham (35 minutes) and Charmouth beach for fossil hunting (50-60 minutes), with Lyme Regis a little further on from Charmouth. Swanage is also around 50-60 minutes away, for either a day on the beach or a trip on the railway. Parking in Dorset all seems to be based on the 'JustPark' app and we had no problems with this.

As I said at the start of this review, we can't recommend Magnolia Cottage highly enough, we had a great time there as a base for our days out and felt very much at home thanks to the efforts of the owners in providing a meticulously clean, well-stocked cottage.
Chris McLaughlin - August, 2023 29/08/2023
The cottage is well decorated and spotlessly clean! The garden is beautiful, lovely sitting area and BBQ.
Heidi Lawton - August, 2023 25/08/2023
The property is very nice downstairs is a good size,clean local shops beach within walking distance lovely holiday home.
Williams - June, 2023 17/07/2023
We had the pleasure of spending a week at the end of May at Magnolia Cottage. The accomodation is very well equipped and everything was spotless (one of the first times we haven't felt the need to clean the kitchen and utensils before use on holiday so a massive thumbs up to the owners/cleaners!!). Communication from the owners was excellent and we had the bonus of being able to access the property a few hours earlier than expected which meant we were able to enjoy our holiday even more! If we ever stay in the Weymouth area again we would look to stay here 🙂 Many thanks!!
Simon Hall - May, 2023 12/06/2023
Magnolia Cottage is a lovely place to stay as you visit Dorset. Near Weymouth, the cottage accommodated our party of six very well. It has off-street parking which was very convenient. The cottage was immaculately clean and very welcoming for us. The kitchen had all of the appliances one would expect, as well as a washing machine nearby in an alcove off of the kitchen. There was a box of games for us to play in the evenings as we rested from our days out. We agreed it was very thoughtful of the owner to provide that for us. The cottage was exactly as described on the website. It is cozy, clean, and very comfortable. During our visit, the WiFi ceased to connect to the Internet, and the owner responded promptly when we reported it. The problem turned out to be an issue with BT, not the ISP, and BT was unable to fix it over the weekend we were there. The owner did keep us fully informed as she dealt with the issue trying to get it resolved. Her response was really above and beyond what I would have expected! If you are looking for a good place for a party of six, Magnolia Cottage is highly recommended.
Jesse Richards - May, 2023 05/06/2023
The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The location of the cottage was good, close to beach and town and other attractions around Weymouth. The owner of the cottage was very good making sure we had everything we needed to ensure we had a good time.
Julie Farley - August, 2022 12/09/2022
This is our second stay at Magnolia Cottage and we are about to book our third stay for '23! That should tell you how much we love the house and all the facilities!
Heidi Lawton - August, 2022 20/08/2022
We had a beautiful time here; the house is perfect and super well organised, and cosy. Also, the hosts are incredible and very helpful and thoughtful. We had some problems upon arrival but everything turned out to be fine in the end. Big thanks.
Sylvia, Peter, Marjdein, Wouter (Netherlands) - July, 2022 16/06/2022
Perfect cottage, immaculate and beautifully presented.
Robert Beale - April, 2022 06/05/2022
The cottage was very well equipped and decorated to a high standard. The owners were in contact to ensure the stay went well. Situated close to the coast and just outside Weymouth, the house was well placed for exploring the Dorset coast. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Malcolm Paulson - October, 2021 01/11/2021
The house was immaculate and was very well equipped. We hadn’t realised it was so close to a busy road which could be heard in the bedrooms and garden. The cottage is listed for 6 people but there is only enough seating in the lounge area for 5 and the smaller bedroom would be challenging for 2. The lack of storage in 2 bedrooms was difficult for a week long stay.
L Bailey - September, 2021 15/10/2021
The cottage was in an immaculate condition on arrival, everything was catered for and beautifully furnished, it was a credit to the owners.
Nicola Hale - September, 2021 20/09/2021
Magnolia Cottage is perfect. My family and my sisters family (6 of us in total) stayed for a week. The cottage was cleaned to a very high standard, very well equipped from the kitchen to the utilities with everything you needed for a week away. The beds were very comfortable, we all slept well and the garden provided a great space for bbqs and a lovely space to relax.
Emma Kuenyefu - August, 2021 04/09/2021
The house was ideal for our 3 generation holiday. Everything was spotlessly clean, and comfortable beds. The bathrooms are beautiful. Every detail was thought of to make a beautiful holiday. We will definitely be back!
Heidi Lawton - August, 2021 03/09/2021
Perfect for 6 + baby.
Joanne Bye - July, 2021 10/08/2021

The Thorne Sept 2020 27/01/2021
Had a great week in your cottage exploring the local area. Weymouth is a lovely town and we particularly liked our visit to Corfe Castle. Hope to stay here again.
Tom and Mel London Oct 2020 27/01/2021
A lovely property - clean and very welcoming. A lovely property - clean and very welcoming.
C Beale July 2020 20/01/2021
The cottage is wonderful! Beautifully furnished, clean and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. It's also in a great location: about a 45 minute walk from Weymouth along a gorgeous coastal path. We will definitely be staying here again! The stairs to the two upstairs bedrooms are quite steep so people with mobility issues might need to use the downstairs bedroom. We really appreciated your Covid policy and the clarity you were able to give my boyfriend about it on the phone. Thank you!
M Webber Oct 2020 20/01/2021
We had a lovely three-generation week at Magnolia Cottage - grandparents, parents, and an 18 month old. It was certainly the best equipped holiday cottage I have ever stayed in - there were even little sets of plastic plates, bowls etc for the baby - and it was immaculately clean. The cottage and the garden were both just as spacious and attractive as they look in the photos. There's room for two cars on the drive but it's also easy to park just across the road from the cottage. The location was excellent - an easy walk to the beach, from where you could walk along the seafront into Weymouth, and a little shop on the corner for buying essentials. The owner and Dorset Cottage Holidays were very easy to communicate with, and when we had a health issue at the end of our stay they were very helpful.
S Cooper Sept 2020 20/01/2021
Was a lovely, well presented property. Dorset Cottage Holidays offered a Fantastic personal service
T Bell 2020 20/01/2021
Owners were very helpful. Property spacious very well presented and Netflix a really good bonus. Nothing to dislike. Off licence and corner shop. Good access to weymouth by car or on the bus.

We can't recommend Magnolia Cottage highly enough, we had a great time there as a base for our days out and felt very much at home thanks to the efforts of the owners. If we could give the owners of this cottage 20 out of 10, we would!

The cleanliness was absolutely outstanding and the cottage is very well-equipped with everything you could possible need. Thoughtful additions such as a good stock of sachets of quality branded coffee and tea bags, milk in the fridge and lovely biscuits on arrival made us feel immediately at home when we arrived after a long drive from Kent.

We'd also added a note to our booking that we had a birthday during our stay and the owners had very kindly left a birthday cake and put up a happy birthday banner, which was such a nice gesture, a great reflection of how thoughtful the owners are in terms of their guests feeling welcome and enjoying their stay.

The location is great, with Weymouth a short drive but also walkable if you're feeling energetic (but also very easy to park at the Pvillin carp park), and Overcombe beach is just 15 mins walk from the cottage, from where you can then walk on to Bowleze Cove (there's a nice outdoor bar there serving both drinks and food, with deckchairs overlooking the sea) or hop onto the South West Coast path and enjoy the magnificent views.

The cottage is a great base for many of the key places to visit, including Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, etc. We parked at Durdle door and walked to Lulworth Cove, but if you're less mobile or the kids grumble too much (as its quite a hike back up the hill from Lulworth Cove!) then the car park ticket for one is valid also for tthe other, if you prefer to drive between them. Further out you have the abandined village of Tyneham (35 minutes) and Charmouth beach for fossil hunting (50-60 minutes), with Lyme Regis a little further on from Charmouth. Swanage is also around 50-60 minutes away, for either a day on the beach or a trip on the railway. Parking in Dorset all seems to be based on the 'JustPark' app and we had no problems with this.

As I said at the start of this review, we can't recommend Magnolia Cottage highly enough, we had a great time there as a base for our days out and felt very much at home thanks to the efforts of the owners in providing a meticulously clean, well-stocked cottage.

We had the pleasure of spending a week at the end of May at Magnolia Cottage. The accomodation is very well equipped and everything was spotless (one of the first times we haven't felt the need to clean the kitchen and utensils before use on holiday so a massive thumbs up to the owners/cleaners!!). Communication from the owners was excellent and we had the bonus of being able to access the property a few hours earlier than expected which meant we were able to enjoy our holiday even more! If we ever stay in the Weymouth area again we would look to stay here 🙂 Many thanks!!

Magnolia Cottage is a lovely place to stay as you visit Dorset. Near Weymouth, the cottage accommodated our party of six very well. It has off-street parking which was very convenient. The cottage was immaculately clean and very welcoming for us. The kitchen had all of the appliances one would expect, as well as a washing machine nearby in an alcove off of the kitchen. There was a box of games for us to play in the evenings as we rested from our days out. We agreed it was very thoughtful of the owner to provide that for us. The cottage was exactly as described on the website. It is cozy, clean, and very comfortable. During our visit, the WiFi ceased to connect to the Internet, and the owner responded promptly when we reported it. The problem turned out to be an issue with BT, not the ISP, and BT was unable to fix it over the weekend we were there. The owner did keep us fully informed as she dealt with the issue trying to get it resolved. Her response was really above and beyond what I would have expected! If you are looking for a good place for a party of six, Magnolia Cottage is highly recommended.

The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The location of the cottage was good, close to beach and town and other attractions around Weymouth. The owner of the cottage was very good making sure we had everything we needed to ensure we had a good time.
Julie Farley - August, 2022 12/09/2022
This is our second stay at Magnolia Cottage and we are about to book our third stay for '23! That should tell you how much we love the house and all the facilities!
Heidi Lawton - August, 2022 20/08/2022
We had a beautiful time here; the house is perfect and super well organised, and cosy. Also, the hosts are incredible and very helpful and thoughtful. We had some problems upon arrival but everything turned out to be fine in the end. Big thanks.

Perfect cottage, immaculate and beautifully presented.
Robert Beale - April, 2022 06/05/2022
The cottage was very well equipped and decorated to a high standard. The owners were in contact to ensure the stay went well. Situated close to the coast and just outside Weymouth, the house was well placed for exploring the Dorset coast. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Malcolm Paulson - October, 2021 01/11/2021
The house was immaculate and was very well equipped. We hadn’t realised it was so close to a busy road which could be heard in the bedrooms and garden. The cottage is listed for 6 people but there is only enough seating in the lounge area for 5 and the smaller bedroom would be challenging for 2. The lack of storage in 2 bedrooms was difficult for a week long stay.
L Bailey - September, 2021 15/10/2021
The cottage was in an immaculate condition on arrival, everything was catered for and beautifully furnished, it was a credit to the owners.
Nicola Hale - September, 2021 20/09/2021
Magnolia Cottage is perfect. My family and my sisters family (6 of us in total) stayed for a week. The cottage was cleaned to a very high standard, very well equipped from the kitchen to the utilities with everything you needed for a week away. The beds were very comfortable, we all slept well and the garden provided a great space for bbqs and a lovely space to relax.
Emma Kuenyefu - August, 2021 04/09/2021
The house was ideal for our 3 generation holiday. Everything was spotlessly clean, and comfortable beds. The bathrooms are beautiful. Every detail was thought of to make a beautiful holiday. We will definitely be back!

A lovely property - clean and very welcoming. A lovely property - clean and very welcoming.
C Beale July 2020 20/01/2021
The cottage is wonderful! Beautifully furnished, clean and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. It's also in a great location: about a 45 minute walk from Weymouth along a gorgeous coastal path. We will definitely be staying here again! The stairs to the two upstairs bedrooms are quite steep so people with mobility issues might need to use the downstairs bedroom. We really appreciated your Covid policy and the clarity you were able to give my boyfriend about it on the phone. Thank you!
M Webber Oct 2020 20/01/2021
We had a lovely three-generation week at Magnolia Cottage - grandparents, parents, and an 18 month old. It was certainly the best equipped holiday cottage I have ever stayed in - there were even little sets of plastic plates, bowls etc for the baby - and it was immaculately clean. The cottage and the garden were both just as spacious and attractive as they look in the photos. There's room for two cars on the drive but it's also easy to park just across the road from the cottage. The location was excellent - an easy walk to the beach, from where you could walk along the seafront into Weymouth, and a little shop on the corner for buying essentials. The owner and Dorset Cottage Holidays were very easy to communicate with, and when we had a health issue at the end of our stay they were very helpful.
S Cooper Sept 2020 20/01/2021
Was a lovely, well presented property. Dorset Cottage Holidays offered a Fantastic personal service
T Bell 2020 20/01/2021
