Our party of seven ranging in age from 2 to 70 years all enjoyed our week in Weymouth with Sykes Cottages. Our property was well placed, within comfortable walking distance of the beach with its powdery sand and safe bathing. Walk a little further along the prom to the Sea Life Adventure Centre with lots to do for children including a water play area, ideal on a hot day. Another day, just a short drive away, we had a very enjoyable time at Monkey World. Although the walkways are a little up and down, as a six month post op knee surgery patient, I had no problem at all getting around and keeping up with the family. Not to be missed is a drive to the lookout on Portland to see the magnificence of Weymouth Bay laid out below, attached by the golden ribbon of sand that is Chesil Beach.
