There is also a nice selection of delightful holiday cottages in Weymouth, many of which come with their own patios and gardens and enjoy lovely rural locations, but still close to the sea.

Things to do in Weymouth

Weymouth has all the true attributes of a British holiday town with a major seafaring heritage. Made even more attractive for sailing since it was the site for the sailing events of the 2012 Olympics, the harbour area is picturesque and always busy, and there’s a safe family beach just minutes from the town centre.

-Bennetts Water Gardens is a tranquil and beautiful place popular with local and visitors in Weymouth holiday homes. Here you can explore 8 acres of gardens filled with carefully preserved plants and there are many things to see, including the National Plants Collection of giant water lilies in a Monet style setting, Japanese bridge included.

-Timewalk is located in the Hope Square/Brewers Quay area which is also a local shopping destination. Discover the exciting history of this small coastal town by following the guided sensory trail. It starts with the Black Death and guides you all the way through the settling of the Americas and the preparations by British troops for World War Two.

-Sea Life Park & Marine Sanctuary is home to aquatic mammals and sea creatures from all over the world including penguins, large otters, turtles, crocodiles and seals. Displays include a walkthrough ocean tank, rainforest and reef and kids will love the interactive rock pool, feeding times and shows.

-Nothe Fort is a large fort built on the entrance to Weymouth harbour. Formally designed to protect this important coastal settlement from invasion, the Nothe Fort offers stunning views over Portland and Weymouth harbours. There’s also a number of educational and intriguing exhibitions just for children.

-Brewers Quay is located close to holiday apartments in Weymouth. In Hope Square, this Victorian brewery has been redeveloped and opened to visitors. It offers a chance to look into the brewing history of Weymouth, whilst also offering a Speciality Shopping Village where you can pick up some great souvenirs.

Three shower rooms (one ensuite) a ground floor bathroom and a ground floor loo ensured that nobody had to queue. The property is ideal for a group of adults or two families of four e.g. four adults plus four children; we were a party of six adults and four young children, which did not work so well, owing to the twin rooms being on separate floors. The house is comfortable with an extremely well-equipped kitchen, enabling preparation of meals for our family of ten. The large stove, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer were particularly appreciated by our large family group.
