Persimmon Homes


A quintessentially English seaside town, Weymouth is blessed with a sandy beach, the awe-inspiring Chesil Beach (an 18-mile stretch of shingle beach) a marina and harbour with 17th century fort – not to mention the iconic Isle of Portland made famous by Portland Bill. While visitors are attracted by the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast, walking and watersports, there is much to enjoy for locals.

Eating out near your new home in Weymouth is a delight. There’s everything from seafood to sundaes, chips to churros and tapas to tasty takeaways. Shop in the supermarkets or visit the independent retailers in the town and harbour to buy fresh fish to eat at your new house. There are excellent local services and amenities, great schools and transport links – you can even catch a ferry to the Channel Islands or France!

Living in Weymouth

Sailing near your new build in Weymouth 

As a UNESCO world heritage site, your new home in Weymouth is a natural playground for everyone who loves hiking coastal paths or enjoying watersports - at the old harbour or in the natural lagoon created by Chesil Beach. Walk from your new build along Weymouth's main beach or watch the world go with fish & chips on the promenade. There are lovely walks around Nothe Fort and gardens, with panoramic views out to sea. Grab a picnic and head to Portland Bill's rocky coves, or take a trip to the much-loved beach at Preston and the beach at Ringstead, just a short drive from your new build home. Explore Maiden Castle, a huge iron age hill fort between Weymouth and Dorchester or take a trip to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door - Dorset’s most famous landmarks are now on your doorstep.

Your place to enjoy the local wildlife

Your new build in Weymouth is ideal for wildlife lovers. You have the Abbotsbury Swannery, the Sea Life Centre and RSPB Lodmoor within easy reach. East Fleet is a natural lagoon created by Chesil Bank that stretched all the way down to Abbotsbury. Children will love hunting for fossils along Chesil Beach too, an 18-mile long pebbled stretch of the Jurassic Coast, just a short drive from your new build home.

Schools near your new house

Your new build in Weymouth is close to 13 primary schools, two through-schools and six secondary schools. There are three SEN schools, two of which have sixth forms, and one offering independent education. The University of Plymouth also has an award-winning beacon status campus near your new build house, Weymouth College.

Great road links straight from your new property

Drive from your new house in Weymouth via the A354 to Dorchester (9 miles) and pick up the A35 - it will take you across the county from Honiton to Bournemouth (both 40 miles). The Heart of Wessex train line runs regular local services to Dorchester (8 minutes), and you can get a direct train to London (3 hours). Alternatively, leave your new home and take a Condor Ferry to France or the Channel Islands – Weymouth to St Malo crossings operate seven days a week, all year round.
