    “Our only grumble was a) the lack of reading lamps, particularly in the top floor bedrooms.”

    Some lamps in the lounge would be nice too, as the ceiling light is a bit harsh.

    Some lamps in the lounge would be nice too, as the ceiling light is a bit harsh. b) the lack of places to hang clothes/towels, again, on the top floor especially. Other than that, a very comfortable property, and an excellent position. We thoroughly enjoyed being so close to the harbour and all areas of interest.

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 hosting independent quirky shops, a ten-screen cinema.

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.

Festivals will cause some inconvenience due to some road closures and parking restrictions. Should you require any further assistance or clarification on this please do not hesitate to contact us.
