Directions if you are coming by car

Unless you live locally, no matter where you come from, you will eventually be at one of two places: the M5 or M27. From both directions you need to get onto the A35.

From M5, get off at junction 25. Follow the signs to Weymouth. If you come down M27 and through New Forest, follow sign-posts to A31 and Dorchester which will then start sign-posting Weymouth too.

From A35, find the A354 sign posted into Weymouth, then to Portland. The A354 takes you along Chesil Beach Road and onto the island. You will see signs to Fortuneswell—follow these. As you come up the hill, see the Co-op on the right. The road immediately after is Spring Gardens, BUT it becomes a one-way street. So, go past the top entrance, and take a sharp right down High Street. As you come down the hill, see SLOW on the road, before a bend to the right. Begin indicating right. Immediately after the bend, is a very sharp turn, up the narrow and steep road that is Spring Gardens. The Jasmine House is half way up the hill, on the left-hand side. Look for the palm trees.

There is a parking space in front of the house. The narrowness of the street and the angle can make it challenging. If you prefer, there is free parking for 72 hours at Hambro Car Park which is just 2 minutes-walk from the house. Zoom the Google Map above to see this.

There is an excellent train service from both Waterloo and Bristol. From London, the journey takes 2 hrs 50 minutes. From Bristol, the journey is around 2 hours 20 minutes. Weymouth train station is 6 miles away from The Jasmine House. A taxi ride from the station typically costs £14. Please ask the taxi driver to come up from the High Street. Some drivers don’t know my house is below the one-way part of the street.
