Buddleia House is in a fantastic location about four minutes' walk from the Brewers Quay area and Newton's Cove, with some sea views from the bedrooms.  This detached holiday home was built in the 1930's and is set in an elevated position, within a quiet residential area.  Buddleia House has benefited from a recent total makeover, including a new kitchen, bathroom and decoration, plus the creation of a second floor bedroom with sea views.  The house is light and spacious and retains its original character. With tastefully designed rooms, a large garden with patio and lawns and private parking, the property is perfect for a holiday in Weymouth.  Nearby is Newton's Cove, a favourite place to go rock pooling at low tide, or a short level walk of about ten minutes will bring you past the pretty old harbour, over the town bridge and to the town centre, with a variety of high street names and individual quirky shops.  Adjacent to the high street is the main long, sandy beach with shallow waters. Here children can indulge in entertainments long synonymous with seaside holidays; donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows.  Eating out in Weymouth is increasingly exciting.  As well as arguably the best fish and chip shops in the region, one may sample cuisines from around the world.  The harbourside restaurants serve freshly caught local fish and seafood, including hand dived scallops.  Travelling out for the day one may choose to drive along the world heritage Jurassic coastline, with stunning views and scenery, stopping along the way at pretty villages, such as Burton Bradstock or Abbotsbury, to enjoy the hospitality of a local pub, or cream tea from the local tea rooms.

Best house we have stopped at through Dream Cottages, only thing I would have added to make it perfect would be a barbeque as it is a lovely garden. Stayed July 2018.

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!
