Last week my family took a little trip down to Weymouth for a traditional sea-side holiday, with my grandparents and four dogs in tow! As much as I love jetting off abroad, I’ve always loved simple British family holidays, and Weymouth did not disappoint (except being told I was too big for a donkey ride)! With beautiful weather, sandy beaches and plenty of good food, it was the perfect place to relax for the week.
When we weren’t out and about seeing the sights of Weymouth, we were down at the beach with the dogs, which were in their element, as were we – sitting in the sunshine eating ice creams and plenty of Dorset Fudge and shortbread – which went down pretty well at Jellybean HQ too!
We may have been a bit early, seeing as afternoon tea week was the following week, but that didn’t stop us indulging in several calorific cream teas. With unlimited cups, freshly baked scones and lashings of cream and jam, I was in heaven! And it was tea with a view – from The Lookout Cafe you can see all of Weymouth beach and beyond.
Of course, no sea-side holiday is complete without eating fish and chips out of paper. We took a trip to Weymouth’s port and found The Seagull Cafe, as featured on ITV1 in Marco Pierre White’s ‘Great British Feast’, which serves the best fish and chips I’ve ever had – I would definitely recommend a visit!
So, if next year you fancy a ‘staycation’, why not give the lovely little sea side town of Weymouth a visit. Although you can never guarantee the weather, it’s perfect for a relaxed break away, especially for those who enjoy the simple things in life.
