Mariner's Rest is a newly built and thoughtfully presented light and airy holiday home just a short walk from the main beach in Weymouth.  The large lounge opens out onto a patio garden with a table and chairs, ideal for enjoying the last of the sun's rays.  Mariner's Rest is ideally located with many options just a stroll away;  Lodmoor Country Park has walks / cycle routes and a play park and adjacent is the Sealife Adventure Park, home to turtles, seals and penguins.  If walking to the beach pick your perfect spot on the bay which spans three miles.  At one end of the main beach find fine golden sand with traditional beach entertainments including donkey rides and Punch and Judy whilst further along the sand changes to pebbles and the beach becomes quieter.   The Georgian Esplanade has an elegant look and has a number of al fresco cafes where you may take in the sea air and views.  For guests travelling out of Weymouth for day trips why not journey westerly along the coast enjoying the spectacular views of the Jurassic coastline, whilst stopping at traditional pretty villages which welcome visitors warmly with cosy tearooms and pubs with gardens.  A stay at Mariner's Rest offers a contemporary and stylish home just a short walk from everything Weymouth has to offer to visitors.

Mrs H Ackrill
One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. It is lovely .. clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds and the cute little garden is completely dog safe. It is easy walks to the beach, a few nice pubs, a good fish and chip shop and more shops a little further. We could happily stay there again. Stayed April 2017

Mrs L Slater
Everything was just great. It was excellent accommodation for all of us including the dog. Nice quiet location but not far from sea front. We would definitely recommend this holiday accommodation. Stayed September 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!
