Set in extensive secluded gardens with panoramic seaviews of Portland harbour, Chesil beach, 16C castle ruins and private access to sandy bay and only 10mins from Weymouth centre and historic harbour. Basic but comfortable apartment with most amenities, offstreet parking, heated pool (April-October half term), gardens and pet friendly

We also have a top flat with fantastic sea views

The space
One of two apartments in building set in the gardens of our home. The bottom flat is a basic but comfortable, two bedroomed apartment with galley kitchen including hob, oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, a bathroom with bath/shower, sitting/dining area with TV/dvd/wifi and prints of Olivia's paintings. Whilst the apartment is cosy it is the setting which makes it special, nestled in extensive grounds above the picturesque Castle Cove Beach and with one of the best panoramas in South Dorset, quiet, tranquil, sheltered but only a short walk to the delights of Weymouth or a ten minute ride to the rugged Isle of Portland.

Where you’ll be

Dorset, England, United Kingdom

Although near to town centre Glenthorne is located on the South West Coastal path in a no through road and is a quiet, tranquil place, a perfect "get away from it all' setting. As well as overlooking Castle Cove Beach we are within easy walking distance of a convenience store, chemist and fish and chip shop and The Old Castle pub. Further along the Coastal Path is an outdoor café set in delightful gardens next to Henry VIII's ruined castle with views from Chesil Beach to Lulworth Cove

My family and I have lived and welcomed guests to our beautiful location since 1997, during which time we have been lucky enough to host many international sailors including the Dutch Olympic Squad who won 5 medals whilst staying with us. Since 2012 I have spent more time in my studio overlooking the inspiring panorama and painting and I now organise a biennial open studios event for South Dorset - OPEN FOR ART. I love to paint the traditional charm and colour of Weymouth's seafront and harbour and produce commissions incorporating customers' family members and nostalgic memories in those settings. We travelled a fair amount before moving to Weymouth with our children but frankly I love it here so much I haven't done much since!!

During your stay

The two of us live on the grounds in our own large house and let our adjacent cottage to a family. There is only one other apartment so only two groups are here together, which means there is always plenty of space in the gardens to enjoy the views.
During the summer we do host small outdoor sculpture workshop sessions on some weekends in the garden.
As we are on the spot we are always happy to assist with any enquiries or special requests as is my son Oliver and Yasmin who live nearby.
