    Fantastic location, great views, great path right outside for walking, small beach within a 30 second walk. Was going to buy one of these houses when they were first built, gutted we didn’t. Only downside, could do with a kick of paint but would definitely rebook. Thank you.

  • "This was our fourth stay at Waters Edge."

    We love a lot of things about this property, the location being our main reason for staying here. However, we were disappointed that we had to report a number of maintenance issues during our stay. Many of them may seem minor, but collectively they became a problem; when staying in a property like this, we do not expect to have to spend time on the phone reporting faults. The issues we had were; problems unlocking the front door to the point that we only used the back door to enter and exit the property. The plug in the bathroom sink got stuck and would not drain. The toilet door on the first floor would not close. Only one of patio doors opened onto the balcony and then leaked during a storm. Also, the outside handle on one of the patio doors was held together with masking tape and did not instil you with any confidence when trying to close it. The lights in the garden were not working. Finally, there was a 'mat' on the floor in the lounge by the patio doors. To say it had seen better days would be generous, it was like a rag and we immediately moved it. We rang Dream Cottages who were very good and made arrangements to visit the property the same day. The sink was sorted and attempts made to sort out the patio door so it could be opened. A new part was required and this was fitted very quickly the next day. Our main disappointment was that when you come away on holiday and pay for a 5 star 'luxury' place to stay, you do not expect to take time out of your holiday ringing the agent to report a number of faults. We could see in the visitor book the issue with the outdoor lights had been reported earlier in the year but the problem remained. Despite the above we had a wonderful holiday, and very much enjoy staying here. We had already booked another week for next year and are very much hoping the owner of the property takes onboard ours and others feedback (noted in the visitor book) and makes some much needed improvements on this lovely house.

    Thanks for this helpful feedback. It has been challenging weather over the winter/spring which led to the fault with the garden lighting, but I am pleased to report that the electrician has been able to repair the outside garden lights. We have already earmarked replacement of the patio door as well as a number of windows during our own upcoming stay in August. This will also further improve the views from the living room and master bedroom, as well insulation. Property Owner

  • "Chose this property due to it's location and view and was not disappointed, the house has all the home comforts plus the amazing view, ideal to sit, relax and enjoy the stunning view from the balcony."

    Great to have parking and enclosed garden for the dog, enjoyed walking along the Rodwell trail and easy to get into Weymouth for the beach. We had a lovely week and will definitely be back soon. My granddaughter cried when we left and we all felt sad to be leaving such a perfect holiday home. Look forward to our next visit.

  • "The view was amazing."

    Bedrooms and bathroom very clean. The lounge needed a good vacuum on arrival. The property needs some TLC. A previous guest had written in the guest book October 2022 that the fridge collects water in the bottom this is still the case. Under floor heating in dining room and kitchen doesn’t work so it was very chilly. Lights in garden do not work so dangerous if using back entrance .Lounge and kitchen door have big gaps in them so wind whistles through .

  • "Waters Edge has the most amazing view over Portland harbour that we have ever seen."

    It was relaxing to sit in the comfortable lounge and gaze at the water and look at the ships and sailing boats. We found the property home from home .Everything was in good order and the place was spotless. The sun is in the rear of the property in the afternoon,and the newly decked garden is a real exciting place to sit and read in the sun.The best part for us, a cycling and walking family, was the Rodwell trail.It is wonderful to be so close to this marvellous trail when staying at Waters Edge. The Lidl store at the end of Portland causeway, very near to the property is a great, economical place to shop .Thank you for a wonderful week.

  • "Water's Edge is a lovely warm, comfortable property."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location instructions and parking simple; plenty of room for a large vehicle. However, some of the kitchen equipment let it down. A milk saucepan, frying pan and roasting pan were well past their sell by date. The condition of these were obviously not picked up by the cleaner’s or the maintenance team. The items were all speedily replaced by the maintenance team when we reported the issue. Likewise the bathroom bath non slip mat was also replaced. We did struggle with the front door lock, using the back door only during our stay. This was noted by the maintenance team but, it appears that it’s security mechanism was a bit too technical for our brains. Overall a lovely property, we will definitely return.

    As a family we understand that cleaning the property is of the upmost importance however by moving the time to when you can arrive is disheartening 4pm this year and 5pm 2022 this takes away some of your holiday time and with prices increasing quite a lot if not a little unfair to the holiday maker also I must remember to call in for tea coffee and milk before arriving because I presume it is due to covid that the welcome pack has been removed Having said this it still has not stopped us returning in july 2022 S George Derby

    Thanks for this helpful feedback. Yes, unfortunately Dream Cottages have been forced to make the check-in time later to allow for more thorough cleaning during changeovers of guests. Similarly the provision of tea, coffee and milk had to be curtailed due to COVID restrictions. BW Saleem (owner) Property Owner

    Always something to watch. Beach just round the corner from the house was great for my young son, and Castle Cove beach close by too. Really close to the Chesil and Billy Winter's restaurant was great for our young son again, as on the beach. Highly recommended this property. We had a truly wonderful time. Very lucky with the weather! Only thing I'd say is door locks are really quite stiff and it would be good if we could have recycled our rubbish.

  • "What an excellent location, it was amazing having the balcony to sit out on and watch the World go by."

    Unfortunately the house is in need of a lot of TLC, especially the en-suite off the main bedroom. I would still recommend people to stay but we were slightly disappointed having paid a lot of money that the spec throughout wasn't of a higher standard, essentially you're paying top money for the view. The house is ideally located to walk in to Weymouth one way, and Portland the other, both about 2 miles. To walk to Weymouth you can take the longer route of the Coastal path, or go straight down the old railway line. There's a great beach bar called Billy Winters about a 10 minute walk across the bridge to Portland, and a superb restaurant called The Crab House Cafe just across the road before you head over the bridge. For dog owners you can get down to the beach opposite the house, and there's a small sandy cove a 2 minute walk round the corner, our dog was in heaven every day! We had an excellent week and really didn't want to leave. Oh and thanks for the welcome gift!

About the location


Weymouth 2 miles; Dorchester 9 miles.

Wyke Regis is a village on the south western side of Weymouth that sits on the northern edges of Portland Harbour and reaches as far as the back of Chesil beach and The Fleet, just two miles from the centre of Weymouth. There are local shops, cafés and restaurants including the famous Crab House café, with it’s own oyster beds on the doorstep. The National Sailing School, an Olympic legacy, offers a wide variety of water sports and is just two miles away on the edge of Portland Harbour. The Fleet Lagoon that runs between Wyke Regis and Chesil beach is an important area for wildlife and there are many species of birds to be seen in the area, whilst Chesil beach is also a renowned spot for fishing. The Fleet is probably most famous for being the testing ground for Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb, immortalised in the film the Dam Busters. Wyke Regis is the perfect location from which to explore many of Dorset’s most iconic locations on the Jurassic Coast.
