Admire the classic coastlines, rugged cliffs and hidden coves on this break to Weymouth and the Dorset Coast. We have excursions booked where you can explore both the enchanting Sherborne Castle and Burrow Farm Gardens along with free time in Dorchester, Weymouth and Lyme Regis.
DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We make our way to the hotel.
Day 2 – This morning, we visit the 16th century Tudor mansion of Sherborne Castle. Built by Sir Walter Rayleigh in 1594, this grand property is filled with antiques and treasures in every room. You may also want to take a walk around the beautiful gardens, along with the 50 acre lake which exudes peace and tranquillity. After, we visit Dorset for free time.
Day 3 – Today, we have a day at leisure in wonderful Weymouth. Wander along the sandy beach and discover the brightly painted beach huts or maybe take a trip to the Sealife Park, which is home to sharks, turtles and stingrays.
Day 4 – We begin our day at Lyme Regis for free time. Why not head down to the ‘Cobb’, which was famously referenced in Jane Austen’s novel, Persuasion. Our second stop takes us to Burrow Farm Gardens where you can admire the delightful gardens, waterfalls, ponds and a formal rill – along with a delicious afternoon tea.
Day 5 – After a very enjoyable trip, we depart back home with fond memories.
