  • Maureen

    “Ideal location for us and 2 dogs.”

    Well equipped, and exceptionally clean. Welcome pack was appreciated. A hand towel for the kitchen would be useful. We were unable to park in the car port as it was too narrow, not a problem as we were able to park across the frontage.

The property

Overlooking Portland Harbour, Weymouth Bay, Sandsfoot castle ruins and Green Flag awarded Sandsfoot Gardens, Lookout is ideally placed to ensure you make the most of the views on your Dorset holiday.

This modern Spanish style house has all you need to relax on holiday with friends or with a small family.

Lookout is set over a ground floor, and two upper floors.

It can accommodate up to four guests in two bedrooms, both situated on the second floor with sea views. Step out to the balcony from the sitting room and enjoy views directly to Sandsfoot castle and gardens or spend some time in the patio garden which is equipped with a wooden table and bench.. The Jurassic Coastal path is just moments from the house and gives you access to some of the most breath-taking walks.

A short drive away is the National Sailing Academy, the Isle of Portland, Weymouth town, beach and seaside attractions.

A pub and convenience store are within easy walking distance and there is a cafe at Sandsfoot Castle just across the road.

If you want to explore further afield, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle are a short drive to the East, with Chesil Beach, Burton Bradstock, West Bay and Bridport to the West.

All offer unique views and insights in to the gorgeous Jurassic coastline.

In summer take a ride with a double-decked Jurassic coaster bus which will take you through the most iconic places in Dorset from Poole to Axminster in Devon. One of our favourite things about a stay at Lookout is the 'almost secret' sandy beach at the end of the road.

With shallow waters and views over Portland Harbour it's the perfect place to spend the day with the children and dogs playing together.

A fine Weymouth holiday home perfect for couples or a small family.

About the location


Castle Cove is a firm favourite with locals, sitting along side the Rodwell trail area, Castle Cove Beach is usually uncrowded, and offers safe bathing from it’s gently sloping shoreline. There are two main beach areas, Castle Cove, new steps to the beach opened early in 2019, and Sandsfoot beach, both with soft golden sand and the vibe of the best kept secret. Sandsfoot castle is just two minutes’ walk from the beach where you will find castle ruins, pretty award-winning gardens and a small café, offering snacks, drinks and ice-creams. Accessed off Old Castle Road in Weymouth, this area is a real treat for those who want to be away from the buzz and bright lights of the traditional Weymouth Seafront, and yet close enough to venture there when they choose. When you are on the beach you could be forgiven for thinking you are miles from town, and yet you are only a 15-20 minute walk from the old Harbour and access to Weymouth town centre. If you want to know where the locals would recommend you spend your beach days, then Castle Cove and Sandsfoot beaches are it.
