Home Waters is located in a quiet location on the edge of Portland Harbour at Ferrybridge, the southerly tip of Weymouth just before the causeway leading across to Portland and offers the best of both worlds because of this. Portland offers a rugged charm with cliff top walks, wildlife and the wonderful Chesil beach to comb and look for a few lost treasures. Weymouth town centre with a host of shops, restaurants, attractions and the main beach with its golden sands is a pleasant 30 minutes' walk away along the 'Rodwell Trail', an old converted railway line or around an eight minutes' drive/bus journey away. Smallmouth Bay with its small sandy beach is only a minute or two away; however a short walk along the coast will take you to hidden away Sandsfoot beach which is an ideal alternative to the more commercialised town centre beach. The surrounding waters, which welcome the very best of the world's waters sports enthusiasts were where the sailing Olympic events were held in 2012. Home Waters makes for a comfortable family holiday home with the benefit of parking and a landscaped patio garden in an ideal coastal location.

Mrs Torgersen
Ideal place to stay and well equipped. Lots of walks and activities close by. Particularly good for us that we could take dogs - Part of the family and made it even more enjoyable. Stayed March 2018

Mr S Clayton
Lovely family long weekend which had everything we needed - a property that was extremely comfortable and well equipped, close to the beaches and the weather was great - perfect! Stayed April 2017

Mr R Whitbread
Home Waters is a comfortable modern cottage in a quiet location with excellent links to both Weymouth and Portland with buses every 10 minutes. The sea is just 50 metres away with the Rodwell Trail following the coast towards Weymouth. This was ideal for us with our dog together with a local shop just 5 minutes walk away. Stayed July 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!
