What a position – in the heart of Old Weymouth. Perch in the bow-fronted window and gaze down on the bustle of the harbour with its colourful boats and the fishermen coming in with their catch. As for the house, built in 1805, it is uniquely 12-feet wide so although bijou, it is full of arty surprises inside.
Peter and Anna are polished hosts. They’re on hand to help and give you homemade cake with a cuppa when you get there, and serve outstanding breakfasts on lovely china: homemade breads and jams, creamed mushrooms on puff pastry, smoked haddock and kippers from the Bridport Smokery.
Wander along the medieval lanes, head for the sandy beach, book a boat trip, try one of the many seafood restaurants… Then it’s back home to a very comfortable bed.
