Explore Weymouth cottages for history, shopping and swimming

Weymouth is a great location for a family holiday that includes your dog. You can find dog-friendly cottages in Dorset that cater to both human and canine needs.

One of the best things about Weymouth is its year-round events, so you and your dog will be sure to find something fun going on when you rent accommodation here. Dog-friendly cottages in Weymouth sleep any number of humans and often allow multiple dogs.

Attractions near Weymouth holiday lettings

Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park is a great day out for all ages and has both indoor and outdoor fun. The Creature Zone is full of fish and mammals native to the UK, from otters to seals, and you can see them up close in their natural habitat or stay for feeding time to learn more about them. There's Caribbean Cove, an outdoor adventure playground where kids have space to run around, and the Splash Zone where they can cool off under water jets on a hot day. Inside, there are vast tanks full of exotic fish, including a glass tunnel where you're just inches from fearsome sharks.


Things to do near Weymouth holiday homes

Weymouth's best-known attraction is probably its beach. A wide stretch of golden sand with some shingle, it runs adjacent to the lively Esplanade with its rows of Georgian homes, attention-grabbing amusement arcades and fish and chip shops. You'll find lots of Weymouth holiday rentals close to the seafront, allowing you to explore attractions such as Weymouth Pier, where you can enjoy an ice cream while looking out over the sea, and Weymouth Harbour which is full of colourful fishing boats. Here, you can hop on a boat for tours of the Jurassic Coast.


Local weather for your stay in Weymouth holiday homes

While Weymouth is a little milder than the rest of the UK, it has seasonal weather which can be a little unpredictable. July and August are usually warm and sunny, with temperatures hitting the low 20s, without too many rainy days. Off-season, the shoulder months of May, June and September are often sunny and mild, although there's a bigger risk of rainy days, so plan for alternative indoor activities. Winters are usually mild, sometimes dipping to freezing, but with the right outdoor clothes you can enjoy bracing walks on the beach or in the countryside.
