Nestled a stone's throw away from the dramatic coastline of Dorset, in the popular seaside town of Weymouth, rests this fabulous holiday home, Marina Retreat.
Offering a contemporary setting and within easy reach of an award-winning beach, Marina Retreat is an idyllic base for a small family or group of friends looking for a relaxing escape to Dorset.
Dust off your sandy toes as you enter into the charming property, stepping into the open-plan living/dining room, featuring a delightful nautical blue colouring and a contemporary décor, inviting you to cosy down on the sumptuous sofa to enjoy a moment of peace in front of the television after a day full of adventure.
Continue through to the amply-equipped kitchen, fit with gleaming worktops and an elegant breakfast bar, where you can rustle up a heart-warming meal to enjoy gathered around the dining table with your loved ones, planning your holiday itinerary over a bottle of wine.
Heading upstairs, prepare for bed with a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the stylish freestanding bath, or if you'd prefer, wash away the day with a rinse in the walk-in shower.
You're spoilt for choice when it comes to resting your head in the evening, with the property boasting three thoughtfully-laid out bedrooms, a snug single room, offering an intimate escape away from the excitement, alongside two spacious double bedrooms.
Pack up your bucket and spade and spend a fun-filled day at the award-winning Weymouth Beach, where you can enjoy an invigorating dip in the tranquil waters of the bay, or thrill-seekers can partake in a lesson in paddleboarding or kayaking at Portland Harbour.
Keep the little ones entertained with a visit to the beachfront amusement park of Fantasy Island, boasting far-reaching views across the coast from the traditional carousel, or discover the fascinating creatures and marine habitats on display at the SEA LIFE Centre.
Lace up your walking boots and join the South West Coast Path to the quaint harbour settlement of West Bay, on the outskirts of the vibrant market town of Bridport, infamous for its soaring sandstone cliffs being the backdrop of the British crime drama, Broadchurch.
In true seaside tradition, indulge in a portion of fish and chips and a leisurely stroll along the seafront, or test your swing with a game at Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club.
History buffs will be delighted with a visit to the charming town of Dorchester, with a fascinating selection of heritage to be discovered at the 4th century Roman Town House, decorated with striking mosaic floors, as well as the Victorian home of the National Trust's Max Gate, the former townhouse of novelist Thomas Hardy.
If that's not your thing, take a scenic stroll around the well-maintained gardens at Kingston Maurward Animal Park, where you can meet the animals and indulge in a delicious pastry at the quaint onsite café.
Whether you plan to explore the coastline or the countryside, Marina Retreat is a base that you'll be delighted to return to.
