Delightful Dorset

Delightful Dorset

Countryside, seaside and a beautiful market town combine to make this a memorable holiday in Devon and Dorset.

King George III came to Weymouth in the late eighteenth century and the fine Georgian terraces still line the wide Esplanade today. Quaint little back streets wind around the old harbour, and the magnificent sweep of Weymouth Bay offers golden sands and fine, safe bathing. Traditional delights of the English seaside, award winning parks and gardens, fun craft and souvenir shops, regular entertainment in the Pavillion complex and the lovely Dorset countryside on the doorstep- this tour has it all!


Holiday highlights


  • 4 nights with dinner, bed and breakfast

  • Beautiful Devon and Dorset countryside

  • Visits to Lyme Regis, Dorchester and Bournemouth

  • Bournemouth's gardens


We leave home to make our way to Weymouth where we spend
the next 4 nights with dinner bed and breakfast. We arrive in time
to explore this wonderful seaside town.


A full day scenic excursion along the Dorset coast to Devon.
Stopping along the way at attractive Lyme Regis where Meryl Streep stood
on the harbour pier in the film ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’. Lyme Regis
is home to thousands of dinosaur fossils many easily spotted in its limestone
cliffs. Onward to the lovely Devon countryside visiting the elegant resort of
Sidmouth in the afternoon where the beach is set between spectacular cliffs.


A full day out, first heading to Dorchester - Thomas Hardy’s
‘Casterbridge' - where you can wander among the numerous historical
buildings including the courtroom where the famous Tolpuddle Martyrs
were tried, or perhaps take a browse around the market. In the afternoon
we visit Bournemouth which is blessed with two thousand acres of parks
and gardens, clean golden beaches, two piers and the famous wooded
chines which lead down to the sea


Enjoy a free day today in Weymouth.


Sadly we leave for home calling in at Swanage for some time
before continuing home.
