Rodwell Halt is a comfortably furnished holiday cottage with a contemporary kitchen and bathroom and large master bedroom. Just a short walk away is Sandsfoot beach (near the sailing club) with rock pools to explore at low tide; a quieter option than the main Weymouth beach.  Nearby is The Rodwell Trail a walk which takes you towards the national sailing academy on Portland in one direction or the town centre in the other. A 15 minute walk takes you to the picturesque old harbour which has a wide choice of restaurants and pubs.  Another five minute's walk along the harbourside, over the town bridge and you will arrive at the town centre.  Weymouth beach is long and sandy with shallow waters which entice bathers. Traditional beach attractions such as donkey rides, Punch and Judy and trampolines help enhance the beach experience. With many activities possible in Weymouth from a boat trip around the coast, visiting the Nothe Fort or a day at the Sealife Centre it is possible to have fun filled days throughout your holiday.  With so many options available in Weymouth you may find your car stays parked for the duration; but if you fancy exploring our lovely Dorset County you may enjoy driving the spectacular coast road with stunning views, stopping off en route at charming villages along the way.

Mr J Cockayne
By far the best house we've stayed at. Well situated, spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. Would heartily recommend to anyone. Stayed August 2017

Mr J March
Very nice property to stay at. Plenty of space for the five of us. Plenty in the area to do and visit and easy to get out to these places from the property. Plenty of things provided at the property for you to use, WiFi, tv, freesat, DVD, books, games, outdoor seating, plenty of things in kitchen (including things you would normally not find). Not to mention the bucket and spades, crabing buckets and lines, beach shelters (3!), wind break and for the more adventures a one adult and one child blow up boat with oars (Just being a pump) - 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!
