Great house, fantastic location, Weymouth's many attractions are almost on your doorstep; Nearsea is an ideal base from which to explore Dorset's Jurassic coast. Nearsea is a Grade II listed four storey house, believed to have been constructed around 1800.

Upgraded and modernised, it has accommodation for 8 plus baby/toddler and is fully equipped for self-catering. We are set up for weekly rentals (Saturday to Saturday) but can accommodate shorter breaks if available. Parking is available.

Weymouth is situated on a sheltered bay in the estuary of the River Wey, with its RSPB nature reserves. It is in the middle of the Jurassic coast, 8miles south of Dorchester and 5 miles north of the Isle of Portland. The town is famous for its associations with King George III and Queen Victoria and hence its picturesque esplanade. Its coast, beaches, lakes, museums, aquarium, and two shopping centres are the main attractions for visitors. It is also home to the ferry service to the Channel Islands and France.

There are over two hundred events held throughout the year, including firework festivals, dragon boat racing, beach volleyball, sand sculptures and seafood. Weymouth is hosting the sailing events for the 2012 Olympics, linked to the Weymouth Bay Festival. The main shopping centre, close to the house comprises two pedestrianised streets with branches of many national chains and a multiplex cinema. There are shops and restaurants in the pedestrianised Hope Square and Brewers Quay, which are linked to the town centre by town bridge and a small passenger ferry service across the harbour.

Over half of Dorset is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty famous for the Jurassic Coast but also widely known as (Thomas) Hardy Country. Weymouth sits in the middle of the Jurassic Coast stretching from Exmouth to Studland, with popular spots including Lulworth Cove, the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis. Dorset's most famous literary connections include Thomas Hardy and John Fowles, whose novel The French Lieutenant's Woman is set in Lyme Regis.

Dorset is not only a wonderful place to see; there is also so much to do. There are numerous types of boating activity in Weymouth Bay. There are fun fairs and theme parks, Corfe Castle, Monkey World, Swanage Steam Railway, dinosaurs and terracotta warriors in Dorchester and the Swannery at Abbotsbury. Fossil hunting along the Jurassic Coast remains ever popular.
