The Crowne Hotel, Weymouth is in an excellent location, just a short walk from the historic Weymouth Harbour. Offering comfortable, traditional accommodation, with tea and coffee making facilities and a traditional restaurant and bar in the hotel, we are sure to feel very welcome here for our 4-night stay.
Day One – It’s time to leave home and make our way towards sunny Weymouth. We will enjoy comfort stops before our arrival in what is described as England’s Naples.
Day Two - After a full English breakfast we make our way to Seaton, also known as the gateway to the Jurassic coast. After some time to explore, it is time to change the pace with a trip on the historic Seaton to Colyton Electric Tramway. Enjoy the 3 miles of unspoilt countryside along the beautiful Axe Valley to Colyton. With the historic town described as "Devon's Most Rebellious Town" for its part in the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685, you will have lots of fun strolling around the winding lanes exploring the wealth of historic buildings on offer. There is also a marketplace offering a variety of independent shops and inns, which are renowned for their hospitality. It’s then onto the unspoilt resort and fishing port of Lyme Regis.
Day Three - After a leisurely breakfast, it’s time to grab a bargain as today, we are heading to Dorchester for market day. Once you have had time to stroll around the various stalls on offer, we will head to the Dorchester & Langham Wine Estate and Vineyard Café for a tour and some wine tasting. Nestled amongst the rolling hills of rural Dorset, this Vineyard and winery offers visitors a unique chance to sample the award-winning wines, have a bite to eat and enjoy the stunning views on offer.
Day Four – Today will be a day at your leisure to enjoy what Weymouth has to offer. Blue Flag winning Weymouth Beach is worth spending a few hours enjoying. Although, Weymouth is much more than just its majestic beachfront. The beautiful harbour is ideal for relaxing and watching the world go by. Observe luxury yachts, fishing trawlers, tall ships, RNLI lifeboats and rowing ferries as you sit back and wander. Just a half mile from the hotel, a visit to the Nothe Fort is a must. Built by the Victorians to protect the harbour, this unique network of underground passages is steeped in history.
Day Five – Sadly, it’s time for us to head for home. After breakfast, we start our way, with comfort stops on route
