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.

The Dorset 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:
Weymouth & Portland Sailing Events - Situated on the finest small boat sailing waters in northern Europe, Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy has been confirmed as the official venue for the Olympic Sailing events in 2012.

"Perfect holiday rental"
My husband and I and are 1 yr old daughter, have just had the most wonderful weeks holiday at Tides. The location is perfect, seconds away from the sea and just a 5 minute walk to weymouth's supe… More
Thank you! So glad you had a good time :)

"Excellent location and excellent accommodation."
The property location was excellent, being 5 mins walk from the Brewers Quay. The beach is a bit more of a trek as you have to go over the town bridge. There is a lovely walk through the Nothe gardens… More
How come you didn't take the row boat to the beach as I suggested in the list of 'tips' I sent you? Such a great way to get to and from the sandy beach :) As for an extra stair gate.....it's a good point but we feel the stair gate is easily moved and we do supply so much in our house in order to make our guests as comfortable as possible it's just impossible to supply absolutely everything all the time to everybody :) If someone offers me a stair gate they're no longer using I'd definitely snap it up and put it at Tides for future guests :)

"Good location and comfortable accommodation"
The property is set in a convenient quiet location for walking into the harbour and town. It is also a dog walkers paradise where dogs are often let loose, so beware with small children. I am a dog … More
Tides is in such a good location that people do like to visit the green and walk along the lovely promenade of Newtons Cove. Generally most people are really good about their dogs but unfortunately you will always get one or two that aren't, wherever you go! I do not allow tenants to bring dogs to Tides.

Tides is a modern three story town house in just about the perfect location for Weymouth, quiet, but minutes away from both the sea, the the old harbour and the sandy beach. The kitchen is exceptional… More

"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 :)
