The West Country region
Weymouth's cheery atmosphere and safe, golden beach make Weymouth holiday cottages a popular choice for family-friendly getaways year after year. The neighbouring Isle of Portland is connected to the town by Chesil Beach, and its rugged landscape and scattered communities offer plenty to explore during Weymouth holidays. Weymouth and Portland share the UK's sunniest weather. Portland hosted the 2012 olympic sailing events. The Isle of Portland is not technically an island.
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.
