“A great place to stay and enjoy the sailing at Weymouth and Portland”

We stayed in Tidmoor Barn for the week of the Optimist National Championships. The accommodation was excellent and the peace and quiet was just what we had hoped for. Tidmoor is less than 5 minutes from the Sailing Academy and the accommodation layout together weith the garden meant we had everything we needed. Sarah was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definately try to stay there again next time we are in Weymouth.

We stayed at the barn because my husband is disabled, there is everything you would need here with ample room for a wheelcair to move around the whole of the ground floor.The seperate area upstairs enabled other guests to have their privacy if they wanted it. Lots to see and do and lots of places to eat. A very warm welcome from sarah was the start of a wonderful week.

Stayed in the barn for a week in May this year. Highly impressed with the quality of the accommodation, everything we needed for a real self catering experience. The barn is located so that the back doors on both floors have stunning views of the surrounding area. Located close to Weymouth town center and other local amenities. Have stayed here many times before and wouldn't hesitate on going back. Fully geared up for disabled access. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a quiet get away in a stunning location.

“Just a perfect week...”

This was the first time we have visited Tidmoor Cottages having found it whilst searching for accommodation suitable for the disabled. Having once lived in Weymouth, my husband and myself were looking for somewhere where we and my elderly, disabled mother could stay to enable us to visit family and friends in the area. We found the perfect place in the Barn which surpassed our expectations by a long way. Everything on the ground floor was laid out with the disabled in mind yet the upstairs was ideal for us as carers.

The Barn is exceptionally spacious enabling mum and her "trolley" to move about independently, safely and with ease. The ramp to the front door made access easy, doorways are wide enough and the wooden ground floor is level throughout. The wet room bathroom is roomy, fully equipped with handrails, and there are useful extras available if needed, such as a raised loo seat. and tap extenders. My only criticism would be that the shower seat was set rather high for a small lady to use and there was no shelf for shampoo etc. However, as the wet room is so spacious there was plenty of room for me to help my mother thereby overcoming the problem.

Tidmoor Cottages is perfectly located and very easy to find. Although on the main road, the location is quiet and peaceful, absolutely no trouble sleeping. Every part of Weymouth and it's wonderful coast can be accessed quickly and easily by car, and I believe the bus services are adequate as well. The views from the windows of the Barn are stunning, wonderful views of fields, the sea and the Fleet, and because of the location, access to coastal walks is on the doorstep. The local surroundings provide everything you need, such as petrol and groceries, and the local village has great, easily accessible pubs, so no need to cook! As previously reviewed, the cottages are behind electronic gates which gives a feeling of security, and parking is available. The parking is however quite tight and a small car would probably be easier to negotiate, particularly when opening doors for the disabled.

Reassuringly the owners, Sarah, Alan and family, (and Lily the dog!) are available on site should any problems of any kind arise. They are extremely friendly, helpful and amenable and of course have a wealth of local knowledge to help you get the most out of your holiday. Thank you, Sarah, for a great week in Weymouth. We can't wait to come back.

“thoroughly enjoyable visit”

A very comfortable stay. Good walking to the sea, and a well stocked shop close by. An excellent place to relax for a few days. We have stayed here for the last 2 New Years, in each of the 2 cottages, and found them both excellent. Lots of places to visit on the Dorset coast, and we found the book of walks very useful. Sarah, the friendly owner added to our positive experience, and we would not hesitate to return.
