Weymouth, West Country, England
Additional Location Information
Our almost unique location means that you don't actually need a car (though there's free kerbside parking and three car parks close by). You can walk everywhere from panoramic Newton's cove (ideal for an early morning swim overlooking the famous Jurassic Coast) which is only 50 yards away, to the main sandy beach where you'll find traditional seaside activities from donkey rides to Punch and Judy, and the central shopping area with such as Debenham's and Marks and Spencer's. Weymouth, which is almost a peninsula, is said to have it's own mini-climate which means that often when nearby inland towns are experiencing inclement weather, our resort is bathed in sunshine. It has been a port since Roman times. The town is at the centre of the famous Jurassic coast and there are daily boat trips and bus rides available to view the area. Nothe Fort - built in Napoleonic times - is just a few hundred yards from Puffin Cottage at the edge of the rolling Nothe public gardens. The fort has undergone a huge restoration programme in recent years and is open to the public. In Hope Square 100 yards away (between Puffin Cottage and the Harbour) you'll find an original Tudor house which has been fully restored and equipped with authentic furniture and fittings. An open-top tour bus runs an hourly scheduled service from the end of our lane to Portland Bill Lighthouse, passing Chesil Beach (one of the longest pebble beaches in the world) the National Sailing Centre (which hosted the 2012 Olympic waterborne events) and the famed quarries that provided Portland Stone for major bulldings nationwide such as St Paul's Cathedral. Within walking, bus or driving distance, you will find Thomas Hardy's birthplace, the world-famous Royal Tank Corps Museum, the Royal Signals Museum, the Lodmoor Leisure Park, Sealife Centre, Sand Sculpture park and a mass of other sites of interest. Cycling, angling, hiking, birdwatching,m photography and many other activities are well catered for.
The Black Plague started in Weymouth back in the dark ages when it was brought ashore from a foreign ship and spread across the nation!! A more worthy claim to fame is that it was here that King George III helped to create the tradition of seaside holidays when he built a lodge -- now a hotel -- on the seafront and regularly bathed in the sea to the sound of music played by fully-clothed musicians standing in the waves. The fastidiously-maintained Georgian terraces of houses -- most of which are hotels and guest houses today -- sprang up as the nation's Georgian worthies built appropriately-suitable homes in the rush to join their monarch on his coastal jaunts. Weymouth Carnival in August is one of the West Country's big events but the town hosts many other events from vintage vehicle rallies to kite festivals. For dates, visit the resort's official website http://www.weymouth.gov.uk/Visitors/home.
There is a wealth of small local shops, an Asda/Walmart superstore, multi-screen cinema, theatre and restaurants are all within walking distance.
Because of the age of the property, the stairs are steep and we feel that it is unsuitable for anyone with severe mobility problems
