Experience the magnificence of the Jurassic coast with a short break in Dorset. Our holiday cottages in Weymouth provide the ideal base from which to explore this stunning coastline. The world-famous shingle Chesil Beach is just a short drive away. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is 18 miles long (and just 220 yards wide). Literary fans might be more familiar with it as giving its name to Ian McEwan’s novella ‘On Chesil Beach’.
Should shingle beaches not be your thing, head to Weymouth Beach. Sink your toes into the fine golden sand and paddle in its shallow waters. Visit in high summer for a traditional seaside holiday – ride donkeys and enjoy Punch and Judy shows on the beach. Fish and chips doused in vinegar and salt and savoured on a bench at the beautiful harbour is the perfect finish to the day before heading back to your Weymouth holiday cottage.
