Safe Harbour is a beautifully renovated three storey house which stands proudly in prime position beside the Old Harbour in Weymouth - arguably the best location in Weymouth. The property offers guests a luxurious stay in a contemporary atmosphere with a palette of colours reflecting the harbourside location.  The house is very well equipped providing a real 'home from home'. There are wonderful panoramic views of Weymouth harbour, itself a popular tourist attraction, from the bay windows of the property.  As the lounge is on the first floor, the view from here is elevated.  As well as being excellent for spotting visiting yachts from all over the world, the harbour still has fishing boats going about their daily work. There is always something of interest going on at the harbour.  Watching the town bridge open and close to let the yachts into the inner marina is fascinating for young and old alike.

Brewers Quay and Hope Square, just around the corner, offer an antiques emporium, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Newton's Cove, ideal for rock pooling or walking a dog, is a two minute walk away. From there, the sweeping coastline leads to the very attractive Nothe Gardens, the old fort and back to the harbour. At the Stone Pier there is a beautiful view of the beach and Esplanade. Weymouth has an award winning sandy beach, ideal for sand castles and bathing, with traditional seaside entertainment such as Punch and Judy, donkey rides and trampolines. The surrounding waters are a haven for water sports including sailing, wind surfing, scuba diving as well as fishing from land and sea.  Crabbing from the harbourside is a popular pursuit whatever your age.  If you are looking for a luxurious holiday home in the best harbourside location in Weymouth, where the beach and town are also just a few minutes' walk away, then Safe Harbour may be the ideal choice.

Mrs A Wilson
Our week's stay in Safe Harbour was perfect. The house was everything we could have wished for. We were on holiday with our daughter and son-in-law and their five month old baby so it was lovely to have a "home from home" . The location was great. We stayed last year at The Ferryman so we knew we wanted to be in the old harbour area again. This was our third stay in one of your properties and each time the accommodation and location have been faultless. Thank you for your excellent service. Stayed April 2018

Mrs K Leigh

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!
