Accommodation in Weymouth is currently experiencing a bit of a renaissance. This is largely a result of the hosting of the 2012 Olympic sailing events in Weymouth and Portland which created a buzz around the town that has never previously been witnessed. This had a knock on effect which helped increase awareness of this historic town and what it has to offer to visitors from all over the world, not just the UK. Weymouth is often overlooked when it comes newspapers or travel magazines compiling their lists of the top 10 tourist destinations in the UK, but with so much history, Georgian elegance and family friendly entertainment it could be the perfect holiday destination for you and your family.
Holiday accommodation in Weymouth takes many forms and the history of the town and its subsequent development means that there is plenty of choice when it comes to self catering. Georgian apartments and town houses that rise up in the shadow of the famous esplanade draw in many a visitor to the town seeking accommodation in weymouth that is in the heart of the hustle and bustle of a typical seaside promenade; the difference being that this particular one benefits from two miles of golden, sandy beach and a real abundance of choice when it comes to eating, entertainment or simply watching the crowds mill around and enjoy some of the best and brightest weather in the UK during the summer months.
Slightly out of the centre of town and past the iconic bridge which lifts every two hours to let the boats pass by, is the old harbour district of Weymouth which attracts many a visitor with its cobbled streets, quirky independent shops and classy cafes and restaurants. Here the accommodation in weymouth comprises more of traditional fisherman's cottages mixed in with contemporary town houses and apartments. Dream Cottages manages a mixture of properties in this area and some of them are close to our own offices in Hope Square.
If you proceed out of Weymouth towards Wareham and Dorchester then you will notice a relatively new development known as Greenhill. A lot of these attractive newly built properties have been converted into holiday acccommodation and offer excellent views across the Bay and over the town itself. They also benefit from being only a few minutes walk away from the centre of town or, if you prefer to drive and explore other areas of Dorset then they are close to all the major road links offering easy access to popular tourist destinations such as Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Ringstead Bay.
