The West Country / Dorset region
Dorset is a mostly rural county situated on the UK south coast. The undulating scenery provided by the Dorset Downs and Purbeck hills make excellent walking country whilst Poole harbour, the largest natural harbour in Europe, is the gateway to the Jurassic coast stretching west past Weymouth and Portland and along Chesil Beach, the world's longest pebble beach, to the sea fishing port of Bridport.
The Weymouth area
Weymouth is a seaside resort with the added charm of having an attractive harbour hosting both leisure and small scale commercial fishing activities. Situated on the Jurassic coast, Weymouth forms a hub for coastal and countryside exploration and is suited to all age groups. Throughout the summer, Weymouth and Portland have numerous special events and activities including those on the beach, evening fireworks displays, fishing trips, jet boat rides, tall ship sailing trips, glass bottom boat trips in the Fleet lagoon and daily scheduled fast ferry services for day trips to the Channel Islands some 80km away. Weymouth's website (http://www.visitweymouth.co.uk) provides a wealth of information on what to do and what's on.
Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour offer some fine sailing and windsurfing conditions and are hosting these events for the 2012 Olympics. Facilities and tuition for most activities on and below the water are on hand.
Within easy reach, there's plenty to do for all ages - here are a few examples....
Close to Weymouth, the three fortifications originally to protect Portland Harbour (Nothe Fort, Portland Castle and ruins of Sandsfoot Castle) are within easy reach and are all well worth a visit. The Iron Age hill fort of Maiden Castle and the author Thomas Hardy's cottage are just outside the county-town of Dorchester some 10 km away. At Abbotsbury, the internationally renowned swannery is the only place you can walk through a colony of nesting Mute Swans. At the restored Lulworth Castle, attractions include jousting and outdoor concerts whilst at closeby Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door stunning rock formations provide a great backdrop for a refreshing swim! The world's largest armed vehicle exhibition is located at Bovington tank museum where tanks can be seen in mock battles every week (www.tankmuseum.org). Monkey World ape rescue centre provides a fascinating insight into primate and their behaviour (http://www.monkeyworld.org). You can go zip-lining at Ape Escape or take a trip to West Bay and Lyme Regis, both recommended. You'll struggle to find time to relax if you aren't careful!

Where is Weymouth....
Weymouth is at the south west end of the mainline railway from London Waterloo with services every 30 minutes and a journey time of about 3 hours.
There are limited flights by a number of airlines into Bournemouth about an hour's drive away, more into Bristol and Exeter about 2 hour's drive away and many more into London Heathrow and Gatwick both around 3 hours away by road or rail.
There's a good National Express coach link to Weymouth including from London and its airports.
There's a ferry service from the European continent into Poole about an hour's drive away.
Road access is via a newly built link along the A354 from Dorchester and the A35/A31 main route along the south coast. Satnavs may get confused as the new route from Dorchester to Weymouth changed in 2011. Just follow the A354 signs to Weymouth and then to Portland. Kiama is located on Old Castle Road 1km from the A354 which runs between Weymouth and Portland. On a car satnav, the postcode DT48QE is centred within a few feet of the property.

We spent a wonderful time at Kiama. The location is easy to reach and you can also enjoy quiet and peace morning with lovely sunshine on the bed. The rooms are very clean and tidy and central heating is powerful to keep the house warm in the rainy winter. Kinthen is well equipped and we can even make Chinese food easily. The hosts are very friendly and supportive as they are just living nearby and are glad to help at any time.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday staying at Kiama. The location is great - easy walking distance to Weymouth town centre and directly opposite Sandsfoot castle giving an amazing view.

Ideal property if you want a good seaview & a lazy morning with the sun shining in. Easy to walk into town and not too far to a shop for newspapers & bits & pieces. Ideally placed for visiting the Jurassic Coast & Portland Bill. The property has comfortable beds & all necessary mod cons to make it home from home.
