Weymouth Holiday Lettings and Weymouth Cottages - there's nothing like experiencing British seaside charm
Sometimes compared to the Bay of Naples, Weymouth is a great place to explore England's south coast. Weymouth is one of England's oldest tourist resorts, having begun to develop as a holiday destination in the late 18th century when George III took several holidays there. With many of the characteristics of the classic British seaside resort, visitors to Weymouth holiday rentals can stay in the town or use it as a base to explore some of the region's green and pleasant countryside. With the town so popular with tourists, visitors to Weymouth holiday homes can expect a whole range of events to be taking place during their stay. Dragon boat races, kite surfing contests, classic motorbike rallies and volleyball tournaments all occur throughout the year. The highlight is probably the town's August Carnival Day, which features events which will keep all the family happy. Looking for a more exotic beach holiday?

Weymouth still has many of the more traditional aspects of British seaside life to enjoy as well. Children can still take donkey rides along the sands, and there is a rich variety of cafes, bars and restaurants at which to relax and soak up the holiday vibes. There is still nothing in life quite like enjoying an ice cream cone whilst promenading along the sea front at Weymouth.

Not that there is nothing historical to explore for anyone staying in Weymouth cottage rentals. On one side of the harbour there is a house with a cannon ball lodged in its wall, believed to have been fired during the English Civil War of the 17th century. The town's maritime history can be explored at the Deep Sea Adventure exhibition, which also includes a feature about the Titanic. Brewers' Quay and the Museum of Coastal Defence are also well worth a visit.
Bird watchers will also enjoy a stay in Weymouth holiday rentals. There is a wetland nature reserve in the town, known as Radipole Lake, which is readily accessible to everyone. The reed beds here attract a range of species, and there are some great views on offer even if the birds prove to be elusive. A large part of the nearby Dorset coast also forms part of what is known as Jurassic Coast, England's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Popular with fossil hunters, the area also boasts some of England's finest family beaches. Anyone contemplating a stay in Weymouth holiday rentals will not regret their trip. As a way of exploring this charming corner of England, as well as enjoying the charms of a traditional seaside break, a trip to Weymouth is hard to beat.
