Located in an ideal position for a self-catering Dorset holiday, it is just five minutes' walk to Hope Square, which is bordered with a variety of restaurants, bistros, pubs and coffee shops; to reach the pretty old harbour just stroll for another minute or so. Following on from the old harbour you will be in the town centre in a few more minutes and the main beach is adjacent. Strolling from the property you may also explore Newtons Cove, a pretty pebble beach area and The Nothe Gardens great for a picnic on a sunny day. Included at the property is a car parking space and little outside patio area.

Mr & Mrs D&K Cole
I had good feelings about this place as soon as I read about it when looking at suitable properties in Weymouth and it lived up to my expectations. A lovely little place to cater for a couple or small family. Nearby to Brewers Quay and the Harbour meant we could leave the car parked on the drive and not worry about the towns notorious parking dilemmas. The property was an excellent base. Comfy bed, ( no bedroom as such, the bed was situated at the top of an open wooden staircase that also housed bunk beds) adequately equipped kitchen & spacious living area allowed us to relax and unwind after days out and the close proximity to town meant we usually went back out to stroll later on during the evening. Thoroughly recommend this property to small parties of 2 adults with a couple of kids under 10. 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!
