Sixpenny Cottage takes its name from a Treasure Trove of James I Six Pence pieces discovered in the fireplace of an old shepherd's cottage that once stood on the site. Now, it is a holiday home that offers beautiful and tranquil surroundings. Having been designed to give a separate entrance from the main family house and good privacy, internally the property is spacious and charmingly furnished. With its own patio, you are invited to explore the lovely gardens and pond that enhance the setting for Waddon Lodge. A short walk will take you to the Wishing Well where you can experience an extensive menu offering homemade cooking and a variety of delicious puddings and cakes. There are also two pubs to choose from. Upwey village with its majestic Horse Chestnut trees and sparkling stream offers inspiration for any artistic talent. Excellent walking and bird watching opportunities exist. Thomas Hardy gained inspiration for some of his most famous books from this area. The location has an aura of yester years and the many attractive stone cottages which front the village adds to this truly English scene.

Mr G Greenaway
I had an excellent week's stay in the area and at Sixpenny Cottage, which was sublime. It ticked all the boxes on what I was looking for on top of that list was somewhere to relax, unwind with peace and quiet and all I could hear was the Dorset countryside it was great. It was also well equipped, spacious and well laid out so I would like to say thank you for a great holiday. Many thanks- Stayed September 2017.

Mrs J Ball

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!
