  • “Cottage in a good position close to the harbour and high street.”

    A nicely appointed cottage, lovely kitchen diner space. ...

    A nicely appointed cottage, lovely kitchen diner space. Our only critisism is that, despite not being able to access the cottage until 5 pm due to "deep cleaning", there were areas for concern regarding cleanliness: Scruffy old mat in front of the garden access door was dirty. Kitchen floor not particularly clean. A very dirty grill tray in the oven. Rubbish (old dental brush and an old key fob) down the side of the bedside cabinet in the master bedroom. We felt that the property had certainly NOT been deep cleaned.

The property

New Boathouse is renovated, and very well-presented cottage very close to the Old Harbour in Weymouth. This lovely property has a large contemporary kitchen, dining area leading to sitting area - perfect for a larger family or friends holidaying together.

Set over three floors with four bedrooms and sleeping up to seven guests the property is a comfortable holiday home with all necessary equipment. Bedrooms are set over the first and second floors.

The second-floor single room with additional bed, is a little limited in size when used as a twin as it impedes access.

There are en-suite bathrooms to two of the bedrooms on the first floor, as well as a separate family bathroom on the second floor, and a ground floor cloakroom for your convenience. Main award-winning Weymouth beach is only about a short 5-minute walk from the property.

Inner harbour is only seconds away where you can sit on one of many benches, enjoy traditional fish and chips and admire fishing boats and yachts passing by in and out of the marina.

In New Boathouse you are just seconds from the main high streets which are host to favourites such as Marks and Spencer and Debenhams, as well as individual quirky shops, a ten-screen cinema and ten pin bowling.

Also, you will be spoilt for choice with possibilities of cuisines from Italy to China along with traditional fish and chips and fine harbourside dining.

What holiday without a day on the beach – Weymouth’s beach is perfect for making sandcastles and bathing.

Adjacent to the beach is the Georgian Esplanade, perfect for an after-dinner promenade walk.

Venture towards a lovely suburb of Preston where South West Coast path becomes a bit more difficult with rolling clifftops all the way to Lulworth Cove and further.

Weymouth is well placed along the Jurassic Coastline - a short car ride to the West offers the attractions of traditional picture-postcard villages such as Burton Bradstock with pretty cottages and good pubs as well as Abbotsbury Swannery and Sub-tropical gardens.

To the East a visit to the acclaimed Monkey World or Tank Museum may be of interest. The New Boathouse is an ideally positioned property in which to stay whilst enjoying a holiday in Weymouth.
