Local Area

We are very lucky to be positioned right next to the beach towards the far end of Weymouth’s  beautiful promenade. The town centre is a 5-10 minute walk away, and from there you can go to the old harbour, you can cross the Town Bridge and stroll along the harbour to the Nothe Fort and Gardens, or just sit and watch the world go by at one of the many bars, cafes or restaurants in this area. Weymouth boasts a good number of eateries and we are happy to pass on our personal recommendations or those of previous guests.

If you want to travel around the surrounding area there are plenty of beautiful places to visit. These are just a few.
