House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Tides is a modern well appointed property located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and has the advantage of overlooking the picturesque bay and sailing venue used for the 2012 Olympic Games. The house is situated at the beginning of the wonderful promenade that winds around Newtons Cove and on to the Nothe Fort. From Tides you can take a relaxing walk along the promenade or cut through the Nothe Gardens which will take you all of 5 minutes to arrive at Weymouth's Victorian harbour know as 'Brewers Quay'! The property is situated in a quiet sought after location offering ideal family accommodation within close proximity to all that Weymouth has to offer.
Step out of Tides and you are instantly on the coastal path overlooking the fantastic sailing venue of the 2012 Olympic Games. Views of the cove and Nothe gardens from the kitchen and bedrooms 2 & 3 invite you to walk the scenic route or you could just cut through the Nothe gardens and in just minutes you will be in the bustling Brewers Quay area, Weymouth's Victorian harbour with all its shops, tea rooms and restaurants. Or if it's the sandy beach you prefer, then a 10 minute walk from Tides front door will get you there!
This property is a true home from home having the advantage of an excellent level of presentation throughout as well as space on the drive to park two cars and a sunny fully enclosed rear garden.

Barley Way is a very quite cul-de-sac, ending in a large green overlooking the sea (2012 Olympic sailing venue) which is to the side of the house and is ideal for children to run around on and play. There is also a pedestrian bridge down to the cove, so no roads to cross between you and the sea!

The West Country region
As the waves crash against the rocks along the dramatic coastline of Portland, you can see why this forms part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. For real peace and tranquility, even at peak season, explore the quarries, coastal path walks as well as the many quiet and secluded coves and beaches. Weymouth, in contrast, is home to a safe clean sheltered family beach with three miles of level promenade, providing access to the beach, Town Centre, Harbour and Country Park.
Weymouth and the surrounding area in Dorset provides endless activities. Here are a few examples extracted from the local press:

"Fine property, conveniently situated, excellent facilities."
The house is attractive, outside and in, and has a fresh, nearly-new, bright appearance. The garden is pleasant and secluded. The house has all the necessary facilities, plus games & a nice selection of DVDs. A one minute walk and you are looking out to sea and Portland. A five minute walk will take you to the harbour (8 mins back!). The beach and main shopping area are perhaps 10 minutes further on. I personally loved the living room with its large round-the -corner table. Ideal for writing & games. No towel provision was the only inconvenience - we forgot to take ours with us! All in all a lovely holiday home.

Lovely homely house which is light and airy, all mod cons and so handy for the town and beach, could live there.....

"Home from home"
Tides is in the perfect location - a very quiet residential road almost overlooking the sea and a short walk to everywhere in Weymouth (quay, beach, shops, restaurants etc). We parked up our two cars … More

We strongly recommend this holiday home - it is clean, comfortable, very well-equipped with lots of thoughtful touches ( masses of games & DVds for children - and adults ). The owners are very helpful and you can tell they want you to love this house as much as they do..Newton cove is on your doorstep and the Harbour & beach ten minutes away. Weymouth offers family fun, fascinating history, stunning views and a chance to relax - you won't want to leave !

"Lovely home to stay in and a great location"
This is a wonderful rental home, the owners maintain the property to a very high standard. When we arrived the house was beautifully clean and tidy and had all you need whilst staying away.
The location is perfect for walking into Weymouth (about 10 minutes) and also as a base to travel to other popular locations such as Dorchester, Monkey World and Lulworth Cove.
If we were to stay in Dorset again, we would definately stay here again. Highly recommended.
Thank you, we're glad you had a good time :)

"Lovely holiday at great location"
The Tides is a modern townhouse virtually on the coastal path, very close to town/harbour & only 10 mins from the main Weymouth beach. Very clean and well-equipped. Good baby equipment although with two flights of stairs a second stairgate would have been useful. Enclosed garden great for toddlers. Would definitely stay there again.
Thank you :) Hopefully we've covered most things for children i.e. cot, high chair, bathroom step, bowls, cups, etc and a detachable stairgate.....we're obviously worried about children falling downstairs and not upstairs but will definitely consider putting a second gate at Tides Gx

"A comfotable house that is well situated for the harbour and town"
A rental of this quality should provide access to wifi.… More
So sorry we don't offer wifi. It's freely available closeby in the harbour or the alternative is to travel with a 'dongle' - that's what we do, they are cheap and easy to use. If we offered wifi it would just mean an extra charge and not everybdy wants that :)

"beautiful, homely and completly child friendly."

We think so too, thank you!

"A real 'home from home' in a brilliant location"
The house is great - really comfortable, very nicely decorated, light and airy and everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday (there is a great dvd libary and even bikes and crabbing lines in the garage!). Weymouth harbour, beach and many varied shops, restaurants and entertainments are all within a few minutes walk.
There is loads to do and see in and around Weymouth and we would definately recommend it as a brilliant holiday destination and will be back ourselves soon!
Thank you for your kind words, we're so glad you had a good time :)
