  • "Unfortunately we are all adults, with excellent, we look for quality and cleanliness when visiting your holiday homes, sadly Ashwood let us down, we also seemed to have a severe reaction to something in house as of there had been animals in the home, we all have allergies hence choosing a property advertised as no dog's."

    The bedding was stained, pillows tired, windows dirty with pains that need replacing, the outside was needed painting and the paracel outside area was in need of a good clean! Overall cleanliness disappointing, it's time to spend money on it to get back on track, the location is great.

  • "Very spacious."

    Very well maintained and equipped. Great location. We have stayed there on numerous occasions and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ashwood House as a great family holiday location.

  • "Wonderful house right in the heart of Weymouth."

    The harbour is on the doorstep and there is a small beach / cove to the rear if you like swimming. The main beach and town is only a short walk away. The house has everything you need for a seaside stay, and is spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children.

  • "We have stayed at Ashwood house on several occasions."

    Thanks Tim, much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back again in 2024. Nick & Lizzie Property Owner

  • "A very well equipped and comfortable cottage lovingly decorated with lots of sea themed art work to make the property homely."

    One of the good points was being close to the harbour, Weymouth shops etc., and some good walks direct from the property which meant we did not have to use our cars every day. Even in Late October we were able to enjoy sunshine on the outdoor patio area a lovely space at the rear of the property. The only downside was the front bedrooms faced the CEFAS business over the road with deliveries that resulted in some early morning noise - just meant in an early start to the day!

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Ashwood."

    The property is centrally located and the parking is such a bonus. The house is on 3 floor so quite a bit of stairs, but it meant that each floor felt like it’s own unit, giving the 5 of us more privacy. Very well equipped kitchen and big dining area where we spent most of our time. When we took out the trash, we weren’t entirely sure where the designated bins were until a resident directed us, so this is the only minor thing that could be clarified. Thank you so much Ashwood and Dream Cottages, you made our visit to Weymouth that more special.

  • "We have stayed at Ashwood in June for 3 years now and it has never failed to delight us."

    The property is of a very high standard with excellent facilities and is in an excellent location. Do not be tempted to feed the very elegant seagull which is a regular visitor to the patio!

  • "Fantastic house, lots of room, and really well furnished."

    Everything we needed was there, including a lot we didn't expect, like handsoap, washing up liquid and other useful bits! Location is fab, near enough to town for an easy walk, but far enough that its not too noisy.

  • "The location of the property is great; a four minute walk to the harbour, and a ten minute walk to the beach."

    However, the location is also the biggest negative of this property. The front of the building is about ten metres from a very busy factory; two of the bedrooms are located at the front and we were woken every morning at 6.45am by trucks loading and unloading materials and truck drivers shouting across to each other, and this really let the property down unfortunately. This is not a peaceful location, and our sleep was detrimentally affected throughout our stay. The property is well decorated, and the owners have added lots of extra facilities; top of the range coffee machine, and even a PS3 with games for the children. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing place to stay in Weymouth this would not suit. It’s a real shame about the noisy location, because the property itself is lovely.

  • "The keypad was very difficult to use, we were unable to open it on leaving the property; we even asked the owners of Hop House next door for their advice and they couldn't get it to work."

    Things were easier when we could pick up keys from Dream Cottages in Hope Square and return it there. The heating was excellent unlike when we stayed at the property in 2014 and had to borrow electric heaters from Dream Cottages.

  • "The house was immaculate, most things looked brand new, it was in a great location near the harbour."

    One small criticism would be that the tv channels were limited. We had brought a fire stick so could watch films etc. I would definitely rent this property again.

    A well laid out house, although the middle floor double bedroom was a little tight on space, but all in all a great property. It was great having free Wi-Fi and an off the road secure car park space too. We will book this property again. Thanks for helping us have a great holiday!

About the location

BREWERS QUAY HARBOUR

Dorchester 8.7 miles; West Lulworth 15.8 miles

Brewers Quay is the old Victorian brewery situated at the heart of the harbour, in Weymouth, Dorset. Much of the grade II listed complex and surrounding brewery buildings date from the late 1800 early 1900’s and many have stones inlaid commemorating their construction year. This area is now a popular destination with many restaurants, café and bars, creating a vibrant culture, where you can relax with a drink and watch the world go by. Tucked away down the harbourside streets, you will find original Tudor harbour buildings, estimated to have been built in 1600 and well worth a visit, with a very interesting history to share. You will also find the Weymouth Museum, with some incredible exhibitions, and the harbour is also home to the lifting bridge, where you can watch the luxury yachts head out to sea, and then walk over the bridge to the town's winding streets of boutique shops and the seafront esplanade and beach. There is more to this seaside town than meets the eye; Brewers Quay is a much-loved holiday destination in Weymouth!

Note: Ashwood is accessed via steps at both the front and rear entrances
