The Creek is a modern ground-floor apartment situated in the outskirts of the village of Ringstead near to the town of Weymouth in Dorset and benefits from boasting sea views and private access to the beach. The apartment can sleep 5 people in 1 king-size, 1 twin room, 1 single bed in the corridor as well as a family bathroom). The rest of the apartment is made up of a fitted kitchen, a dining/sitting room. To the outside of the apartment is off road parking for 2 cars and a lawned shared garden. The Creek is perfect for families with pets who enjoy exploring Jurassic coast staying close to the beach.
The Creek is located in the wonderfully tucked away Ringstead offering the opportunity for an amazing family holiday and a lifetime of happy memories - having holidayed here I speak from experience. With direct access to Ringstead beach and all accommodation on one floor, you can wake up and be on the beach in 2 minutes. The beach is all year round dog friendly and The Creek accepts up to two well-behaved dogs so everyone can enjoy their holiday together. There are a shop and cafe just back from the beach but the Smugglers Inn at Osmington is accessible via a very scenic walk along the coast which will take 15 minutes or so - top tip, take a torch for the trip back if going in the evening - there are no lights! The walking here is good but quite competitive if heading towards Lulworth so be warned it's not just a gentle stroll although very much worth it. If you like water sports this is a great place for sailing or windsurfing but beware the reef at low tide as it will eat daggerboards or fins like they are going out of fashion. Weymouth is a short drive away for further eating options as are several surrounding villages with some good pubs to discover.
The accommodation at The Creek comprises of a sitting room with two comfortable sofas, TV with basic Sky, DVD player and dining area. The kitchen has a utility and is equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a range of accessories and utensils.

Ringstead is a small hamlet dominated by Ringstead Bay and beach and is part of the Jurassic Coast. The beach is a mix of pebble and shingle with some sand. You can often find rock pools at the Western end of the beach at low tide. There is a reef close to shore which becomes revealed at low tide. Therefore, the beach can be a good place to look for fossils. A shop and cafe are available in the car park for the beach. For those that are windsurfing from here please note the reef has no respect for fins. I have lost count the number of times I have connected with it. Ringstead has excellent views of Weymouth and Portland. It is an excellent base for walking with many options open to you including continuing on to Durdle Door. The Smuggler’s pub at Osmington Mills is the next village on. This is within easy walking distance along a coast path so you don’t have to resort to taking to the car if you don’t want to.
