Looking for that holiday by the sea with beautiful scenery, historic towns, relaxing visits and some excitement thrown in the mix? Look no further. Dorset’s Coast and Country could be just what you’re looking for. With a visit to some of the main attractions, you will be spoilt for choice. There truly is something for everyone.
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.
Day One – It’s time to leave home and make our way towards sunny Weymouth.
Day Two - After a full English breakfast we make our way to Seaton, the gateway to the Jurassic coast. We’ll then head on the historic Seaton to Colyton Electric Tramway. Enjoy the 3 miles of unspoilt countryside along the beautiful Axe Valley to Colyton. 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. It’s then onto the unspoilt resort and fishing port of Lyme Regis.
Day Three - 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 tasting. 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.
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. 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.
