property description



Constructed in late 2015 by award-winning retirement developer McCarthy and Stone, Harbour Lights Court is a very clever development sympathetically designed to blend perfectly into the Harbourside architecture of North Quay .

The working Harbour and its moorings provides constant activity and interest and is also the location for many exciting events throughout the year. Harbour Lights Court is conveniently located within around half a mile easy walk of the main retail centre and just a little further to the Esplanade and Weymouth's famous three mile long sandy beach. Nearer to the development an Asda superstore is less than 5 minutes walking distance and there are a number of pubs and restaurants close by.

There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Harbour Lights Court; there are always a variety of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, film nights and occasional themed events. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.
