Offering views of the famous white chalk etching of King George III riding out of Weymouth, Whitehorse Vista is a deceptively spacious holiday home on the outskirts of Weymouth.  Five minutes' walk along an old county lane brings you to the picture postcard Dorset Coastal village of Sutton Poyntz.  Here you will find the pretty village pond where the water trickles and ducks laze around; a great place to sit and relax whilst taking in the fresh air.  Adjacent to the duck pond is The Spring Head - a popular local pub providing food and having a large garden and children's play area.  A short walk away is a Spar shop, takeaway fish and chips and The Bridge Inn.  You can walk via a public footpath to the nearest coast at Bowleaze Cove.  A five minute drive to the west is Weymouth town, with its long sandy beach, pretty harbour, attractions and shops.  Heading to the east you can visit Lulworth Cove, world famous for its geologically unique and beautiful cove, and the Dorset Coastal Path is then easily accessible for anyone looking to ramble.  Next to the Cove is Durdle Door, a large rock formation likened to a doorway, arising from the sea which is a must visit attraction which has a popular beach offering snorkelling and cliff walks.  Whitehorse Vista with four bedrooms, three bath / shower rooms and two lounges is perfect for large families or friends holidaying together and looking for a 'get away from it all' location which is also just a short ride from everything Dorset has to offer to visitors.

Mrs J Scanlon
This is an ideal place to stay for a family with a dog, as dog bowls and towels were provided, and the local beach at Bowleaze Cove is dog-friendly. The walk to the beach is much easier than we expected and there's a good cafe. The cottage itself is within a 10 minute walk of three family friendly pubs, serving great food and they all had children's play areas. Our 6 year old grandson had a great time and was reluctant to go home! Stayed August 2016

Mr K Gibson

Mr R Innes

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!
