The Ferns is a newly built semi-detached property finished to an extremely high standard.  The ground floor has a social kitchen / diner whilst the second floor boasts a large master suite with bedroom, ensuite bathroom and large walk in closet.  Situated just a 10 minute walk from the Greenhill area and the main beach in Weymouth, here you will find a long and sandy shoreline.  You can stroll along the promenade to the town centre in the evening as the sun sets behind the Georgian seafront. Just around a five minute walk away is Lodmoor Country Park, a large expanse of greenery incorporating a cycle route, Play Park, outdoor exercise areas and picnic spots. In the same location are Pirate Mini-Golf and Weymouth Sea Life Park.  Nearby are also tennis courts and Greenhill gardens, overlooking the beach.  If you feel like spoiling yourself hail the land train as it passes along the prom and ride in to the town before dining in one of the many eating venues along the old harbour.   Weymouth has everything needed for a coastal holiday, a long sandy beach, traditional beach attractions such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy, an attractive working harbour, an abundance of dining options and a good shopping centre.  However, if you would like to explore more of the Dorset Jurassic coastline, to the east a lazy drive takes you to the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.  To the west why not visit the market town of Bridport via the quaint villages of Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury.

Mr A Pell
The property was above expectations. Very clean, well equipped and surprisingly spacious. We had one query re the washing machine which turned out to be a lack of understanding on our part but even though it was a Sunday the maintenance people came out within a few hours - stayed July 2017

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!
