Harbour - about a 5 minute walk, Main beach - about a 10 minutes walk, Newton's Cove and the coast - about 3 minutes walk. Anvil is a pretty house on the popular but quiet Maltings development on the site of the old Devenish brewery. It is a well equipped holiday home which has been carefully updated by the owners. It is located within a 3 minute walk to Newton's Cove (great for rock pools) which then leads round to the Nothe Gardens and Nothe Fort. Alternatively a 5 minute walk takes you right into Brewers Quay and the harbour area. Here you can explore all the various shops and sample the succulent food which is offered from the harbourside restaurants plus of course traditional fish and chips. Coffee houses serving cream teas and home made cakes are also on offer. Why not savour an early morning breakfast while watching the sailing crafts go by. Take a leisurely stroll around the harbour to the main beach with its golden sands. Adjacent to the harbour is the town centre with high street names and individual shops as well as entertainment such as a nine screen cinema and ten pin bowling.

The West Country region

Dorset is a county with lots to offer, from astounding natural landmarks such as the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the beautiful Golden Cap and the popular natural cove at Lulworth to the lively seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Lyme Regis. A week (or longer) self catering holiday in Dorset gives you the time to really soak up the history, feel and beauty of the region, taste the fine local cuisine and enjoy a break from the hectic pace of town or city life.


Weymouth is one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK. Its well known esplanade and sandy beach stretches for two miles and the town is famous for offering a traditional seaside holiday to visitors. It was also chosen to host the 2012 Olympic sailing events.

"Location great!"

The location of Anvil House is perferct. 2 Minutes walk to Brewers Quay and a couple minutes more to the town centre. It was very quiet at night considering how near it is to the bars etc. No sky tv… More

"Good holiday home in great location"

Nice house, nothing too fancy (which suited us) which seemed to have everything you would need and some.

The location was perfect, near enough to the centre of things, but far enough away to not be noisy. Brewers Quay, with its pubs, restaurants and shops, is only about 5 minutes walk away and the town centre only another 2/3 minutes.

The only problem we had was that we expected Sky TV, but it was only Freesat - very disappointing if you like to stay in on an evening and watch TV.

Otherwise would recommend this holiday home and would definitely consider staying there again.
