Family-friendly apartments in Weymouth
Perfect for a family seaside break in a beautiful peaceful setting at The Old Coastguards, this detached holiday property has bright, spacious and flexible accommodation and has recently undergone a full refurbishment.
Although its Jurassic Coast location is private with access via a single track road, it is only a 20-minute walk along the coastal path to West Bexington or a 15-20 minute walk towards Abbotsbury where you will find the sub-tropical gardens. Continue on to the heart of the village and you will find the local shops, pubs, tea rooms, art galleries, and the famous Abbotsbury Swannery can be found on the eastern edge of the village. The walks, views and sunsets are fantastic in this very special place.

The sitting room, dining room and kitchen are open plan and ideal for getting all the family together.

There is a bespoke, spacious and well equipped kitchen. Outside, there is a gravelled courtyard with a dining deck, table and chairs, corner sofa and coffee table. Above the property is a large open lawned area. The property also has a separate utility/laundry room.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property and location!
The house is absolutely lovely and the view is even better. We didn’t realise we’d be that close to the sea which was a great surprise. The house is well equipped and the layout is perfect for families. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch too. The nearest village of abbotsbury was beautiful, you almost feel like you’re in a time warp. There’s also a great park for the kids, with a nice view of St.Catherines chapel. We’ve had such a lovely break, we didn’t want to leave! 11/10 😊
