It is situated in a quiet pedestrian lane away from the crowds yet still within easy walking distance to all that Weymouth has to offer including colourful harbour, sandy beach, Georgian seafront, shops, bistros and bars.

This self catering cottage can sleeps up to six people with attractive and comfortable double, twin and bunk rooms. There is also a travel cot and booster seat for smaller guests. Where possible, furniture and other items are ethically or sustainably sourced and recycling facilities are provided.

That said, for those with cars, there is a season-ticket provided for many local car parks.
The holiday accommodation has a good sized, paved garden for summer evenings which includes table, chairs, hammock and bbq. Inside the cottage, as well as tv, dvd and games cupboard there is a wood burning stove in the lounge (and central heating throughout) for cosy winter retreats.
The owners, (who grew up in Weymouth and wanted to stay connected with this beautiful part of the world), aim to maintain the good standard of the cottage as well as improve it each year.

Weymouth is a traditional seaside town with grand Georgian seafront. It's a wonderful place for young or old to relax and recharge, its sweeping bay beautiful while at the same time offering a safe spot for children to play in sea and sand.
Punch and Judy, donkey rides and swing boats are amongst the many beach activities available during the summer. In the quieter winter months Weymouth is equally appealing and fine walks can be enjoyed from one end of the bay to the other, heading for the white cliffs at Ringstead Bay or Lulworth Cove beyond.
If fishing is more your scene, whether at sea or from dry land, both are readily available as are boat trips to Portland castle or the Channel Islands. Alternatively, you may just want to take a gentle stroll from the cottage, past the harbour's colourful cottages to the Nothe gardens to enjoy the view across the sea to the Isle of Portland.
Portland is an unsung delight. Three lighthouses are located on the Bill itself. One is now a private residence, the second a bird observatory and field centre and the third still fully operational and interesting to visit. In the summer months why not journey there on an open top bus? Complete your trip with a visit to 'The Lobster Pot' café and enjoy fresh crab sandwiches followed by the most delicious scones (secret recipe), jam and clotted cream.
Weymouth and Portland are joined by a causeway, which is also the start of the famous 'Chesil Beach' world heritage site and forms a gateway to miles of dramatic coastline and countryside including quaint Dorset villages such as Abbotsbury not far not the road which is lovely to visit in the spring when the baby swans start to hatch at Abbotsbury Swannery.
However, if you choose to stay closer to 'home' you will find plenty to enjoy including harbouside and beachfront restaurants and cafes, bars and old fashioned pubs including the cottage's nearest called 'the Boot' which serves real ale, houses an interesting variety of boots around its walls and has a roaring log fire in winter.
Whatever type of holiday or short break you choose, Love Lane self-catering Cottage provides a great base and comfortable 'home from home' to return to at the end of the day.
