Anchor Cottage has been lovingly restored and updated and the interior now has a contemporary feel, with the modern open plan lounge / diner leading to the kitchen; it is a perfect social area.  A high standard has been achieved throughout the cottage with stylish bathroom / shower rooms added, along with a sleek kitchen and pops of colour used against a neutral background.  Located on a paved street and nestled among old fisherman's cottages, Anchor makes a perfect home for families, or two couples wanting to holiday together. Do visit the Tudor House opposite Anchor, it is one of the few remaining original Tudor buildings dating from 17th Century and well worth a visit.  Just a minute away is Hope Square, a pretty and lively area bordered with restaurants, bistros and a pub, where locals and guests alike visit to enjoy an alfresco lunch or cooling drink.  This holiday cottage is located just seconds away from the old harbour in Weymouth where you can view yachts and working fishing boats coming and going throughout the day.  Walking along the harbour you reach the town bridge which rises throughout the day to let taller boats in and out of the harbour.  Just over the bridge is the town centre, with a good variety of shopping and dining options.  Adjacent to the town and just around a five minute walk from Anchor is the main Weymouth beach, which stretches over three miles - the perfect location for a shoreline walk, sand castle building or just sitting and enjoying the gentle lapping of the sea whilst sampling a local ice-cream.  Anchor is the perfect location for a holiday in Weymouth, with everything you should need to have a pleasurable stay just minutes away.

About the Location

Weymouth sits perfectly on the stunningly beautiful Jurassic coastline. Located on the Southern tip of Dorset, this traditional seaside town is one of the most visited and popular areas on the south coast.

With a beautiful, blue flag, sandy beach, sitting against the back drop of an elegant Georgian esplanade, this seaside wonder is a firm favourite for families. As indeed it once was for King George III, who famously used to holiday here.

For a perfectly nostalgic English seaside holiday, you can ask for no more. A golden, sandy beach, named one of the best in Britain, shallow waters which are perfect for paddling, Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, carousels on the promenade, all accompanied by traditional chippies and quaint tea rooms.

Head down to Weymouth’s Old Harbour, a fine Georgian harbour and one of the prettiest in Europe. Simply soak up the bustling atmosphere of harbour life; sit on the harbour wall with some fish and chips and watch the large catamarans, traditional fishing boats and luxury yachts. Or why not enjoy an adrenaline fuelled ride around the bay with the Weymouth Bay Rib Charters. How about a nice family fishing trip? Many of the fishing boats at the harbour offer fishing trips for absolute beginners and accomplished anglers. Weymouth is fantastic for fishing with plenty of wrecks and reefs to explore.

Try a Jurassic Safari where you can sample Dorset’s secret beauty, off the beaten track. You will be taken along unspoilt country lanes, ancient byways and deep river crossings, whilst catching sight of beautiful wildlife.

Fossil hunting on Chesil beach is a joy with the children. They can run up and down the steep shingle climb, whilst you picnic on the beach.

Sandworld is definitely worth a visit; the sand art won’t fail to impress and there is a fantastic sandpit for the children to play in.

Visit the magnificent Nothe Fort and explore the tunnels and passageways that were once filled with soldiers and canons. See where all the gun powder was stored and walk up to the top level where the canons were fired at the approaching enemy.

If a leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens is more your thing, why not try the award winning Greenhill Gardens, which sit right on the seafront. Bennetts Water Gardens is also a lovely choice, replete with a vast array of water lilies and a Claude Monet style Japanese bridge. A very romantic setting for a picnic!

For a fun packed day out with the kids, head to the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower, an underground sea world with attractions, rides and over 1,000 incredible creatures. Venture up in a viewing capsule on the The Jurassic Skyline for an incredible panoramic view across the Jurassic Coastline and Dorset countryside.

Children will love Fantasy Island. There are lots of rides, many traditional ones ideal for younger children, tea pots and flying elephants to name but a few! Penny arcades, slot machines and a fab coffee bar.

Weymouth is a fantastic town with plenty to do for everyone!
