  • “The property had several issues but our main complaint was the lack of cleanliness.”

    It isn't well equipped and we wouldn't wish to return.

The property

Darwin's sits just a stone's throw away from the seafront and is an ideal location for a family to come and enjoy a relaxing break by the seaside.

Set in a residential area that backs onto the main esplanade in Weymouth, this traditional end-terrace cottage has everything you could need for a holiday by the sea.

Head through the front door and find a welcoming sitting room, where you can sink into the sofa and relax during the evening while flicking through the channels on the TV, as the electric fire fills the room with warmth during the cooler winter months.

To the rear of the property is a large kitchen/diner with all the tools you need to create delicious meals together, as well as a door leading out onto the enclosed courtyard.

When sleep is calling, head upstairs to the master bedroom, where you will find a plush king-size bed and a convenient en-suite shower room, while across the landing you will find a twin bedroom.

The second floor offers an additional twin room alongside a large family bathroom, perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of sightseeing.

Darwin's is just half a mile from Weymouth’s award-winning beach, station and town centre, perfect for keen explorers.

Weymouth has a lively café and bar scene, many of which are seafront-facing, so you can enjoy a scrumptious lunch or an evening meal if you don't fancy cooking.

The beach is perfect for an afternoon relaxing on the soft sands, getting involved with donkey rides and one of the few remaining traditional Punch and Judy shows in the UK.

Well-placed for exploring Dorset's heritage coastline, venture west along the coast to discover the incredible 18-mile-long Chesil Beach, along with Abbotsbuty and its swannery, castle and sub-tropical gardens, while the town of Bridport boasts a bustling market and an array of shops, restaurants and inns.

Darwin's offers a great holiday escape for a family or group of friends seeking a base at the heart of one of Dorset's finest seaside towns.
