Local information

  • Set amidst some of the West Country's finest countryside and protected by the rolling hills of the South Dorset Downs lies the ancient village of Upwey which, as its name suggests, runs along the upper reaches of the river Wey. In his book “The Buildings of Old Weymouth” Eric Ricketts describes Upwey as ‘this beautiful village at the head of the Wey'.
  • Upwey is conveniently located about 4 miles from the town of Dorchester and just 3 miles from the Georgian seaside town of Weymouth situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey. Upwey is an attractive village and conservation area with many period buildings, situated in pleasant countryside. The village is home to the Upwey Wishing Well and Tea Room, St Laurence Church as well as two public houses. Weymouth is a vibrant market town, with a pretty historic harbour, lovely restaurants and plenty of shopping. This is also where The Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy is located providing public and private marinas. The county town of Dorchester (4 miles) and Bridport (16 miles) both provide an excellent range of shopping, educational, recreational and cultural facilities.
  • Sporting facilities in the area include golf at Came Down and West Bay, horse racing at Wincanton, Salisbury or Exeter, hunting with the Cattistock and South Dorset Hunts. Sailing and water sports can be enjoyed at Weymouth Bay (the 2012 Olympic sailing venue) or along the Dorset Jurassic coastline, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can picnic on the beach or walk for hours along the coastline.
  • Communications in the area include mainline railway links available from Upwey, Dorchester or Weymouth with services to London Waterloo. The A35 can be joined to the north providing a route to the A31, M27 and M3 east or the A30 west.
