Newlands is a tastefully decorated apartment in a handsome Victorian building. Situated in a quiet residential area about a five minute brisk walk from the Georgian esplanade. The property is within easy distance of Weymouth's best attractions such as the sandy award winning beach that has a traditional family appeal with donkey rides, trampolines and ice cream chalets. The town centre which is adjacent to the beach has a good selection of high street names and interesting independent shops. Cuisines from around the world can be found in Weymouth's restaurants, along with traditional fish & chips and fine harbourside dining. Whilst achieving record breaking sunshine levels in England, for the odd day of inclement weather Weymouth is well prepared, a multi-screen cinema, bowling alley and Sharkey's soft-play centre for children are all possibilities. If you wish to visit the surrounding county, the world heritage status Jurassic coastline stretches east and west from Weymouth with pretty villages along the way where you may refresh your taste buds with a stop at a teashop to sample a Dorset cream tea.

Mrs H Holdsworth
Lovely, clean apartment within walking distance of the main town and beach. It had it's own parking space so it was good to be able to leave the car there and walk into Weymouth town. We visited so many wonderful places, like Corfe Castle, Portland Lighthouse, Chesil Beach, Bovington Tank Museum and Bridport. Would definitely come back, lovely part of the country. Stayed June 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!
