5 Catherine House
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
5 Catherine House is a stylish second floor apartment situated in the bustling seaside town of Weymouth. Its central position provides an ideal base for exploring Weymouth and the surrounding areas.
Internally the property is well equipped, benefitting from a spacious living area complete with air-conditioning. Externally, the communal roof patio is perfect for unwinding after a busy day.
Weymouth is a delightful seaside town packed full of cafes, shops and restaurants. There are an abundance of attractions to suit all tastes and ages, including a Georgian seafront with a wonderful award winning golden sandy beach and shallow waters. The area will play host to a series of major sailing events in the run up to 2012, including the Olympic finals themselves.
For those in search of culture, Portland Castle is nearby and is considered to be one of King Henry VII’s finest coastal forts. Literary fans should head to ‘Hardy’s Cottage’, the former home of Thomas Hardy, which has remained largely unchanged from the time Thomas lived there and is where he wrote ‘Greenwood Tree’ and ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’.

The West Country region
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. Blue Chip Holidays can offer Dorset holiday cottages in many of the county’s towns, each of which has a slightly different experience to offer than the next.
Poole has one of the world’s largest natural harbours
Portland Castle was built in 1539 by Henry VIII to defend Weymouth
Tours of Thomas Hardy’s Dorset are operated throughout the county
Weymouth town and Portland island are steeped in history. From 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.
Blessed with beaches that range from the pebble rich 18 mile Chesil Beach tombolo, to Weymouth Beach’s sandy shores, Weymouth and Portland have a great choice of places to visit and enjoy in both the hot summer months and the wild winter weeks. Add this to miles of stunning Jurassic coastline, a great range of family friendly attractions and a good choice of museums, and you have a surprisingly rich range of activities to keep you busy during your stay in the area.
