    “Darwin's was comfortable, spacious and very well equipped and within easy walking distance of the beach and station.”

    We chose to walk to Asda and Lidl, about 15 minutes away on foot. The beds were new and very comfortable with crisp white bed linen. Lovely too to have large white bath sheet towels and hand towels. Our family of 6, 4 adults and 2 children really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay there again. ...

One hour parking is permitted in the streets surrounding the cottage which enables easy drop off of luggage. We chose to park our 2 cars in streets a 5 or 10 minute walk away in an unrestricted parking zone rather than use the carpark permit supplied. A couple of observations: There were no hooks for hanging coats and raincoats which it would have been nice to have in the small hallway and the plumbing was very noisy with drainpipes routed inside the cottage. All in all a though a thoroughly enjoyable stay

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.
