Maycroft is a Victorian terraced house which has an open plan living area in a sea themed colour pallet and contemporary styling.  The theme is continued throughout the property and each room is individually finished with care and attention.  Maycroft has a spacious patio and lawned garden.  Just around a five minute walk away is Brewers' Quay and the pretty old harbour in Weymouth, here you may wander through the antique emporium housed in the historic Brewers' Quay building or wander along the harbourside as the boats and yachts glide past, you may catch a fishing craft unloading their catch of the day.  Maycroft's location is so handy for all you need for a holiday; Newton's Cove beach with its fascinating rock pools is just eight minutes away and adjacent is Nothe Gardens, expanses of park area interspersed with paths, perfect for picnicking whilst taking in the wonderful sea views.  A short stroll from Maycroft and across the town bridge leads to the town, with its array of high street favourites along with some interesting lanes accommodating independent shops.  Through the town for another few minutes is the main beach; a traditional sandy beach with shallow waters.  Indoor entertainment such as a 10 screen cinema and ten pin bowling can also be found.  When eating out in Weymouth pick traditional fish and chips or Harbourside dining, sampling the best of the days' catch from our local waters or choose from cuisines spanning the world.  A stay at Maycroft offers couples or a small family comfortable accommodation within an attractive holiday home in a location near to beaches, restaurants and attractions.

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!
