  • Mrs Lowry

    “We had a fantastic stay at The Lookout in the May half term.”


    The accommodation was immaculate and very well equipped. The owners had thought of everything. The location was great, the beach is a 5 minute walk (down steps to beach) and the gardens opposite are amazing with a lovely cafe for my morning coffee! The view is AMAZING! Could wake up to that view everyday. Weymouth harbour/beach is a 25 minute walk. As mentioned before the entrance to the car port is fairly narrow and I could just tuck the front of my car in (Kuga) but it was still off road so no problem. We were lucky with the weather too!! Sunshine every day. Would definitely go back.

About the location


Castle Cove is a firm favourite with locals, sitting along side the Rodwell trail area, Castle Cove Beach is usually uncrowded, and offers safe bathing from it’s gently sloping shoreline. There are two main beach areas, Castle Cove, new steps to the beach opened early in 2019, and Sandsfoot beach, both with soft golden sand and the vibe of the best kept secret. Sandsfoot castle is just two minutes’ walk from the beach where you will find castle ruins, pretty award-winning gardens and a small café, offering snacks, drinks and ice-creams. Accessed off Old Castle Road in Weymouth, this area is a real treat for those who want to be away from the buzz and bright lights of the traditional Weymouth Seafront, and yet close enough to venture there when they choose. When you are on the beach you could be forgiven for thinking you are miles from town, and yet you are only a 15-20 minute walk from the old Harbour and access to Weymouth town centre. If you want to know where the locals would recommend you spend your beach days, then Castle Cove and Sandsfoot beaches are it.
