About this location

The Dorset region

Home to fantastic Jurassic coastline and white sandy shores, private beaches, coastal walks, one of Europes best sailing locations, fishing, attractions, museums - Weymouth has something for everyone. Little Gem overlooks the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy - home to various sailing championships held throughout the year.

Restaurants and bars align the harbour streets and are plentyfull, offering varying cuisine and experiences. Some of the countries finest fish restaurants are found in and around Weymouth.

The Weymouth and Portland areas are steeped in history, Roman Galleys to Spanish Galleons the harbour and Island have seen more than their fair share of naval history and Royal patronage. While Henry VIII contented himself building forts to stave off foreign invasion, George III made Weymouth his summer holiday residence, attracting many wealthy ladies and gentlemen to the fashionable seaside town, and influencing its architecture leaving many magnificent buildings, statues and landmarks.


Dorset's beautiful and dramatic scenery has long made the county a favourite with writers, poets and film crews. Jurassic cliffs plunge alongside picturesque harbour towns and coastal resorts, providing an impressive backdrop for the many popular Dorset holiday destinations.

Sandsfoot castle that you can see from 'Little Gem' was primarily built as a decoy in 1539 by Henry VIII, another castle built during the same period, mirrors Sandsfoot and lies at sea level to the opposite side of the bay on Portland. Portland castle is not easily visible from the sea and its intention was to provide a surprise attack on the Spanish fleet during invasion. It is believed that neither castle came under attack, and never actually got to use their weapons.

Tours of Thomas Hardy's Dorset are operated from Weymouth. Sea Life Centre and a new rotating viewing tower found in town centre, Abbotsbury Swannery, Monkey World, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are just a short drive away. Weymouth Carnival takes place in mid August.

Clean and perfectly kitted out. Great property, great location, great views. If you want to walk a bit, this is for you. Not in the town centre, but a lovely coastal walk gets you there in 30 minutes and worth every minute. If you decide to visit one of the many bars, a £4 taxi fare will deliver you home again - definitely worth it. Can't wait to get back there!

A direct walk into the town centre will take you 20 minutes.
