  • “We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Boathouse.”

    The location was ideal for family beach days and the children enjoyed watching the boats from the living room window. The utility room was very useful for our family with two small children. Our only criticism is that the crockery in the cupboards was dirty and we needed to wash bowls, plates and cups before we could use them. This was disappointing considering the late check in time of 5pm due to ‘deep cleaning!’

The property

Situated by the inner marina in the centre of Weymouth, Dorset The Old Boathouse is a comfortable and contemporary holiday home. Accommodating up to five guests with bedrooms on the first and second floor, the double bedroom on the first floor boasts an en-suite as well as family.

The sitting room with comfortable sofa and two armchairs, all with cushions is an enjoyable sociable area to unwind and plan next day’s adventures. Weymouth is the perfect base to explore Dorset and the town itself.

The award-winning beach with its golden sands and shallow water is only a 5-minute walk away while the inner harbour is only seconds from the front door.

On the edge of the town centre you have easy access to a host of the usual high street stores as well as local quirky shops, a cinema and ten pin bowling. There are numerous restaurants with cuisines from Italy to China (not forgetting traditional English) made their home in beautiful streets of Weymouth.

Every night and day choose a different meal! A short car ride to the West you will find West Bay with crumbling golden cliffs of sand and wonderful beach, fossil hunters’ kingdom of Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

To the East is the stunning West Lulworth village with Lulworth castle.

Lulworth Cove nearby and Durdle Door arc display a magnificent exhibition of beautiful rocks of Jurassic period.

Slightly further East you will reach the Purbecks with many more attractions such as Corfe Castle, Swanage, Durlston Country park and Old Harry Rocks. Enjoy your stay in this lovely home by the harbour in Weymouth with family and friends, a perfect base for your adventures in Dorset.
