Local Area Information

Weymouth lies within the 'World Heritage Coast' and was placed in the UK's 5 best seaside towns for families in 2019 by day out with the kids. It's also adjacent to the multi-award winning Weymouth Beach, recognised as one of the best beaches in the country having been ranked number 1 by Cosmopolitan Magazine and winning both Blue Flag and Seaside awards in 2019.

Poole has the largest natural harbour in Europe and it is just the place for those who love sailing, fishing and jet-skiing.

Durdle Door is probably the most famous stone arch anywhere in the world. It was created when the sea pierced through the Portland limestone around 10,000 years ago. Looking west over the beach, isolated stacks out at sea show where an older coastline once lay. This part of the coast is formed from merged bays and shows how Lulworth Cove and Stair Hole may look in several thousand years time.

Lyme Regis also known as the 'Pearl of Dorset' , is an unspoiled historic seaside resort surrounded by beautiful countryside. Here you can enjoy the views as you stroll along the ancient Cobb.
