Guinea Cottage is comfortably furnished and excellently located a minute from the beautiful views of Newton's Cove. This little pebbly beach has great rock pools for crabbing. There are attractive coastal walks leading round to the old Nothe Fort and harbour. Just a short stroll from the cottage is the attractive Brewers Quay area and Hope Square, where you have a choice of dining opportunities, many with outside areas for an alfresco option when the sun is shining. Leading on from Hope Square is the pretty old harbourside where you can see working fishing boats and if the fishermen have a good catch, you may purchase a fresh crab or glistening fish for lunch. With boats going about their work along with luxury yachts, the harbour is a colourful and lively scene to enjoy. Crossing over the town bridge takes you to the town centre. As well as a good selection of well known high street brands, quaint little lanes house individual and quirky shops. Here also is the main beach, famous for its long golden sands and gentle shallow waters. With Weymouth often winning the UK sunshine awards, the benefit of Guinea Cottage's south facing patio garden means that you will hopefully catch a fair amount of sun here.

Mr P Oates
Lovely place to stay with a great location. The cottage had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Ideal for a couple or small family. A big plus was the weather was perfect but Weymouth is good at any time with plenty of bars and good restaurants plus plenty of free entertainment for people of any age. Stayed June 2016

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!
