The property

Skippers Rest sits just a stone's throw away from the seafront and is an ideal location for a small 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 terraced cottage has everything you could need for a holiday by the sea.

Through the front door you will find a spacious sitting room and dining area, both of which have feature gas flame effect fires for those lazy nights in front of the television.

The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking up a delicious meal, whilst the sunny courtyard at the back is perfect for sipping a glass of wine in the evening sun.

Climb the stairs and you will find a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower to choose from, whilst benefitting from a double or twin room.

Skippers Rest 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 with many 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.

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