Dotties Retreat (DOTTI)
Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Dottie's Retreat is a deceptively spacious three storey townhouse within walking distance of the ever popular Brewers Quay part of town. The interior of the property is a delight with a spacious contemporary kitchen / diner opening up onto a fully enclosed garden with small decked area and raised lawn. The large lounge is situated on the first floor taking full advantage of the width of the house. A short walk leads to Sandsfoot beach (next to the sailing club) with rock pools to explore at low tide; a quieter option than the main Weymouth beach. A 15 minute walk takes you to the picturesque old harbour which has a wide choice of restaurants and pubs. Another five minutes walk along the Harbourside, over the town bridge and you will arrive at the town centre. Good shopping options including high street favourites and quirky independent shops lining the charming lanes off the high street. Adjacent to the high street is the main beach which has been long favoured by holiday makers for its wide expanse of fine golden sand (which allegedly makes the best sandcastles in the U.K.) along with shallow waters and traditional entertainments such as Donkey Rides and Punch and Judy. Walking from Dottie's Retreat you can easily access the Rodwell Trail a walk which takes you towards the national sailing academy on Portland in one direction or the town centre in the other. With so many options available in Weymouth you may find your car stays parked for the duration; but if you fancy exploring our lovely Dorset county you may enjoy driving the spectacular coast road with stunning views, stopping off en route at charming villages such as Abbotsbury which has tea rooms, the famous Swannery and sub tropical gardens.

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.
