Jurassic Hideaway is a spacious and contemporary lower ground floor apartment which has been finished to a very high standard noticeable immediately due to the quality of fixtures and fittings in the kitchen and bathroom and attention to detail throughout.  Cool and contemporary seaside hues of blue accessories and feature walls flow through the apartment giving pops of colour to the neutral decor.  Within walking distance are the popular tourist areas of Brewers Quay and the old harbour; for the more adventurous, why not follow the coast around to the hidden oasis called Sandsfoot beach. Nearby Newton's Cove with its rock pools will fascinate young children or a 15 minute walk will take you into Weymouth's town centre with its golden sands and numerous eating and entertainment venues. Jurassic Hideaway is an easy drive from the National Sailing Academy on Portland, with the seas around Weymouth and Portland being recognised as one of the best areas for water sports in the UK. Venturing further, a wealth of attractions across South Dorset such as the acclaimed Monkey World, Country Houses, picture postcard villages and the remainder of the Jurassic Coastline are easily accessible and make for a great day out.

Mrs T Camfield
Very well equipped property, great to be able to park the car up and walk into Weymouth. No problem parking a second car on the road which was good as we travelled as two separate couples. Stayed November 2017.

Mrs R Roby
From start to finish the service from Dream Cottages has been great,thank you for making the process very easy for myself and my family choosing our holiday in Weymouth. Jurassic Hideaway is such a find and we would love to stay again, the apartment has everything you could ever need for a holiday (or to move in!). Perfect location in a beautiful part of Weymouth and just what we needed for a week again. Stayed June 2017

Mr J Underwood
Lovely property with the added bonus of having children's books and games which we weren't expecting but our little girl loved reading and playing with. Would definitely use the property again. Stayed August 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!
