About the home
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 of 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. Wifi will be installed at Tides towards the end of 2012.

The West Country / 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.

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 !

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 :)
