    “The property was even better than the photos suggest, my teenaged daughter said it was the best holiday house she has ever stayed in.”

    The kitchen is really well equipped, the bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms add a touch of luxury. Lots of added extras like crabbing nets and beach equipment were a thoughtful touch. The gas BBQ is easy to use. When the boiling water tap wasn’t working, it was dealt with quickly. The location is perfect for a relaxing break, once the car was unpacked, it was parked in the car park near by and not used until we left. The rowing boat taxi is a great short cut to the beach.

The gas BBQ is easy to use. When the boiling water tap wasn’t working, it was dealt with quickly. The location is perfect for a relaxing break, once the car was unpacked, it was parked in the car park near by and not used until we left. The rowing boat taxi is a great short cut to the beach. Nothe gardens is ideal for walking the dog. The food at the Mexican Tapas restaurant around the corner was delicious and there were loads of other good food options near by. We would definitely stay hear again.

The property

On the doorstep of Weymouth’s attractive historic harbour sits Sailor’s Abode, a beautiful character filled cottage just moments from the water’s edge and close to local amenities.

Accommodating up to 8 guests, this superbly positioned property is ideal for a family or group of friends looking for a seaside sanctuary, with the choice of two beaches being reached within just a few minutes’ walk, allowing you to leave the car parked up for the duration of your stay and explore this delightful Dorset town on foot.

Stepping inside the property, be welcomed into the living dining room where you can settle down and plan your holiday itinerary, before carrying on conversations at the dining table and enjoying a tasty home cooked meal, prepared by the head chef of your party in the well equipped kitchen.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, you will find a double bedroom, a bunk bed room housing two sets of bunk beds and a family bathroom with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

Heading up to the second floor, you will discover a further double bedroom compete with an en-suite shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC.

The courtyard garden is the perfect spot to sit with your morning cup of tea or coffee whilst soaking in the early morning sun and from here the spiral staircase leads you to to a fabulous terrace area where sun loungers await you inviting you to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Head over Weymouth’s iconic drawbridge and into the town centre to discover many shops and boutiques where you can while away the hours seeking that special souvenir to take back home, and the wonderful Georgian esplanade that runs the length of the golden sandy beach is lined with bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat on the go or sit down and enjoy a gourmet evening meal, as the twinkling lights of the promenade light up the bay.

There are many things to see and do to keep the whole family entertained; from donkey rides on the sand, amusement arcades, fairground rides and water sport hire from one on the beach huts.

Weymouth Sea Life Centre is a day well spent where you can discover an amazing underwater world; explore the tunnels and passageways teeming with turtles, stringrays, sharks and otters, visit Penguin Island and meet the only Fairy Penguin colony in Europe, and let the children run of some energy at the Adventure playpark.

Sailor’s Abode is a perfect home away from home from which to explore all the wonders of the Jurassic Coast and have a wonderful and memorable staycation with your loved ones.
