Dottie's Retreat is a deceptively spacious three storey townhouse within walking distance of the ever popular Brewers Quay part of town. The interior of the property is a delight with a spacious contemporary kitchen /diner opening up onto a fully enclosed garden with small decked area and raised lawn. The large lounge is situated on the first floor taking full advantage of the width of the house. A short walk leads to Sandsfoot beach (next to the sailing club) with rock pools to explore at low tide; a quieter option than the main beach. A 15 minute walk takes you to the picturesque old harbour which has a wide choice of restaurants and pubs. Another five minutes' walk along the Harbourside, over the town bridge and you will arrive at the town centre. Adjacent to the high street is the main beach which has been long favoured by holiday makers for its wide expanse of fine golden sand along with shallow waters and traditional entertainments such as Donkey Rides and Punch and Judy. Walking from Dottie's Retreat you can easily access the Rodwell Trail a walk which takes you towards the national sailing academy on Portland in one direction or the town centre in the other. With so many options available in Weymouth you may find your car stays parked for the duration; but if you fancy exploring our lovely Dorset County you may enjoy driving the spectacular coast road with stunning views, stopping off en-route at charming villages such as Abbotsbury which has tea rooms, the famous Swannery and sub-tropical gardens.

Mrs H Smith
Dotties Retreat is is a fantastic location, and a lovely walk down the Rodwell trail will soon have you in the hustle and bustle of Weymouth. The house is very well equipped and beds are very comfortable. Perfect place for a larger group gathering as we all had plenty of space. Stayed May 2018

Mrs D Morley
Amazing property, very spacious. Had a very enjoyable Christmas with all my family! Stayed December 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!
