Iris View boasts one of the finest uninterrupted direct sea views in Weymouth. The apartment is tastefully decorated with high standard fixtures and very comfortable fittings throughout. The garden, which is terraced and laid to patio and lawn, is communal, although you have your own patio with table and chairs. A garden gate leads onto the promenade and beach. A brisk walk along the promenade in the early morning will set you up for the day. From the patio you can observe the rising of the sun while you are eating your breakfast and watch the various sailing activities going on in the bay. In the evening while you are sipping a cool glass of wine you can listen to the gentle lapping of the waves and view the twinkling lights around Weymouth Bay. Weymouth offers a holiday for all ages and all tastes sailing, windsurfing, cliff walks, bird watching, golden sands and a magical harbour. Gourmet restaurants, coffee houses and family eating venues are all nearby. Iris View is located on the sought after quieter side of Weymouth close to Greenhill Gardens; only a 15 minute level walk along the sea front to the town centre.

Mrs R Tucker
Loved our stay at Iris View. Beautiful property with stunning sea views. Direct access to the beach was brilliant for swimming in the sea at any time you chose. Very spacious and clean. Will definitely be booking again. Stayed August 2016

Mr C Coates
Very pleased with the property and facilities. In an excellent position very handy for access to the beach and town and at night quiet away from the noise of the town. We had a brilliant holiday - stayed July 2016

Mr & Mrs J Nicol
We had a wonderful holiday, very much enjoyed by our son aged 8 who had a certain amount of freedom to go to the beach with his friend while we watched from terrace of the property. Its proximity to the sea made this ideal for our needs, lots of eating out of doors and a lovely view. Stayed May 2016

About the Location

Weymouth sits perfectly on the stunningly beautiful Jurassic coastline. Located on the Southern tip of Dorset, this traditional seaside town is one of the most visited and popular areas on the south coast.

With a beautiful, blue flag, sandy beach, sitting against the back drop of an elegant Georgian esplanade, this seaside wonder is a firm favourite for families. As indeed it once was for King George III, who famously used to holiday here.

For a perfectly nostalgic English seaside holiday, you can ask for no more. A golden, sandy beach, named one of the best in Britain, shallow waters which are perfect for paddling, Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, carousels on the promenade, all accompanied by traditional chippies and quaint tea rooms.

Head down to Weymouth’s Old Harbour, a fine Georgian harbour and one of the prettiest in Europe. Simply soak up the bustling atmosphere of harbour life; sit on the harbour wall with some fish and chips and watch the large catamarans, traditional fishing boats and luxury yachts. Or why not enjoy an adrenaline fuelled ride around the bay with the Weymouth Bay Rib Charters. How about a nice family fishing trip? Many of the fishing boats at the harbour offer fishing trips for absolute beginners and accomplished anglers. Weymouth is fantastic for fishing with plenty of wrecks and reefs to explore.

Try a Jurassic Safari where you can sample Dorset’s secret beauty, off the beaten track. You will be taken along unspoilt country lanes, ancient byways and deep river crossings, whilst catching sight of beautiful wildlife.

Fossil hunting on Chesil beach is a joy with the children. They can run up and down the steep shingle climb, whilst you picnic on the beach.

Sandworld is definitely worth a visit; the sand art won’t fail to impress and there is a fantastic sandpit for the children to play in.

Visit the magnificent Nothe Fort and explore the tunnels and passageways that were once filled with soldiers and canons. See where all the gun powder was stored and walk up to the top level where the canons were fired at the approaching enemy.

If a leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens is more your thing, why not try the award winning Greenhill Gardens, which sit right on the seafront. Bennetts Water Gardens is also a lovely choice, replete with a vast array of water lilies and a Claude Monet style Japanese bridge. A very romantic setting for a picnic!

For a fun packed day out with the kids, head to the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower, an underground sea world with attractions, rides and over 1,000 incredible creatures. Venture up in a viewing capsule on the The Jurassic Skyline for an incredible panoramic view across the Jurassic Coastline and Dorset countryside.

Children will love Fantasy Island. There are lots of rides, many traditional ones ideal for younger children, tea pots and flying elephants to name but a few! Penny arcades, slot machines and a fab coffee bar.

Weymouth is a fantastic town with plenty to do for everyone!
