Location description from owner

The England region

Home to fantastic Jurassic coastline and white sandy shores, private beaches, coastal walks, one of Europes best sailing locations, fishing, attractions, museums - Weymouth has something for everyone. Little Gem overlooks the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy - home to various sailing championships held throughout the year.Restaurants and bars align the harbour streets and are plentyfull, offering varying cuisine and experiences. Some of the countries finest fish restaurants are found in and around Weymouth. The Weymouth and Portland areas are steeped in history, 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.

Weymouth

Dorset's beautiful and dramatic scenery has long made the county a favourite with writers, poets and film crews. Jurassic cliffs plunge alongside picturesque harbour towns and coastal resorts, providing an impressive backdrop for the many popular Dorset holiday destinations. Sandsfoot castle that you can see from 'Little Gem' was primarily built as a decoy in 1539 by Henry VIII, another castle built during the same period, mirrors Sandsfoot and lies at sea level to the opposite side of the bay on Portland. Portland castle is not easily visible from the sea and its intention was to provide a surprise attack on the Spanish fleet during invasion. It is believed that neither castle came under attack, and never actually got to use their weapons.Tours of Thomas Hardy's Dorset are operated from Weymouth. Sea Life Centre and a new rotating viewing tower found in town centre, Abbotsbury Swannery, Monkey World, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are just a short drive away. Weymouth Carnival takes place in mid August.

“A Gem of a Holiday”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2016

We have just returned from a two week stay at Little Gem and have had a great time. The views were amazing, everything was just as advertised. And the bed was so comfortable. So much to see and do,we would love to come back again ,Thanks Jon.

Hello Phil, we are so pleased you enjoyed your two week stay at Little Gem and the comfy bed. We would love to welcome you back again soon and trust your long journey back to Scotland was without incident. Thank you for your review. Regards Jon & Linda

“Excellent accommodation with lovely views”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2015

Little Gem is a very clean, well equipped apartment. It has a lovely garden with views across Portland Harbour. It takes fifteen minutes to walk into the centre of Weymouth and is a short walk to Chesil beach. We would highly recommend Little Gem.

Thank you for your kind review and leaving the property clean & tidy, much appreciated. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at 'Little Gem' and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2013

Clean and perfectly kitted out. Great property, great location, great views. If you want to walk a bit, this is for you. Not in the town centre, but a lovely coastal walk gets you there in 30 minutes and worth every minute. If you decide to visit one of the many bars, a £4 taxi fare will deliver you home again - definitely worth it. Can't wait to get back there!

A direct walk into the town centre will take you 20 minutes.
