  • "This property's appeal is based massively on its location, and consequent wonderful views."

    All rooms on the seaward-facing rear of the house look out across Newton's Cove, Portland Harbour and beyond. We loved this view, which was wonderful in any weather. The house's location gives immediate access, via the rear wooden gate, to Newton's Cove, a quieter, more relaxing alternative to the busy Old Harbour and the rest of Weymouth, although both were easily reached on foot from Belmont. The ease of access (albeit up and down steep steps) meant that far more of the holiday was spent down on the shore, rockpooling and beachcombing on the shingle. There are two outside terraced seating areas, with a brick barbecue. Unfortunately the house is somewhat let down by the rather unkempt appearance of this area. Some brickwork is badly cracked, with at least one completely detached brick on the ground. The outside just needs tidying up, and the attention of a builder for a couple of days. Internally, the house was very comfortable, with plenty of seating for our party of six. The bedrooms were spacious, with very comfortable beds, and the bathrooms were clean with effective showers. However, we discovered early on that the lock on the main bathroom door was liable to jam in the locked position, and that the door to the downstairs bathroom could not be locked, or even latched. These are obviously really fundamental issues which require early attention. We didn't want our holiday interrupted by a locksmith, and so made our own amusing arrangements. One other area which deserves comment is the car parking arrangement. This involves a double garage which is two or three minutes walk away. The property description states that the garage roller shutter door is "temperamental". A garage door does not in fact have a mind of its own, and this one is simply unreliable and requires repair or maintenance which, for whatever reason, hasn't been carried out. Trying to regard a garage door as simply being temperamental when you've spent five minutes in the rain trying to close it is guaranteed to wipe the smile off your face. All in all, Belmont is a property which we very much enjoyed staying in, but one which requires a little attention in certain key areas to make for a trouble-free stay.

  • "Great house, spectacular views."

    5th holiday at Belmont we always love it and enjoy it very much. We are sad to leave. Mr & Mrs Bennett. ( stayed from 29/1/22 to 12/2/22 ).

  • "We loved staying here; the property overlooks the cove and is within walking distance of the harbour."

    The house was very clean and we understand that it is about to be redecorated. There are four bedrooms, two with dramatic sea views; the others have views of the picturesque lane. The garden overlooks the cove and you can watch the swimmers going out, as the sun rises in the morning. From the house, you can walk through the Nothe, or along the Rodwell Trail to the Chesil. Such a lovely, peaceful spot. We will be back, again.

  • "The staff in the Weymouth office were friendly and helpful when we could not get the TV to work and then our dog was ill."

    BUT. This property is TIRED. There are damp patches upstairs and down.The kitchen is very tired and the ‘entertainment centre’ is a joke. The DVD player is just a lump of broken plastic. The gardens at both front and back are full of broken flags and a trip hazard. And the downstairs shower room window is sprained which has caused the towel rail to rust. And the carpets are filthy. I understand that it is towards the end of the season, but having stayed here before - I recognise some of the stains and they have been added to. Last time I commented that the shower mat was mouldy - solution? Remove the shower mats and don’t replace them. This seems typical of this owner’s attitude. Whilst the property is in a superb location, we will not be returning to this house until the condition has been improved.

  • "Whilst the location was excellent and we had a good holiday."

    The accommodation was overpriced and not very good value for money. The fridge is old fashioned and far too small and I am not sure how effective it is. The freezer was not much more than an ice box. The garden was overgrown and neglected, although thus was sorted when we complained, the carpets are stained and grubby. Not highchair was supplied although requested.

  • "Excellent position but a really tired and dated property in desperate need of refurbishment."

    Also, the extra hour before access to allow for a more thorough based 'covid' clean is an absolute joke. Although the bathrooms, bed linen & towels were fine the general standard of cleanliness most definitely was not & as a consequence the property felt really grubby. Besides, fundamentally, a full on deep clean and basic redecoration, a number of items need replacing and/or repairing - for example, the broken clothes horse plus internal & external tiles & slabs. Well equipped kitchen. Tricky parking for 2 medium size cars because although there is a double garage a few minutes away it only has a single door access.

    Some appliances and furnishings need some tlc/replacement including fridge, dishwasher, both bathroom doors which don't shut without slamming. WIFI works and all essentials provided. Beautiful views and quiet location with access to small stony beach and sea in seconds. Harbour with pubs and restaurants less 5 minutes walk. Main beach and High St less than 15 minutes walk. Great family holiday house.

  • "The house was filthy."

    My Mum and Sister arrived at the house before us. There was cobwebs hanging from every window and it was filthy throughout. My Mum rang the office and they did send the cleaner around but she came back with attitude saying there was nothing wrong with it. My Mum and Sister had to clean the house from top to bottom. There was stains all over the carpets. The garden is full of weeds and the wooden furniture hasn't seen a scrub or a lick of paint forever.Garage is a great size but also includes are dead rat thats been there some time. Filthy but a great size. Won't be coming back

  • "A wonderful property, spectacular views , everything you need in the house , it was very clean ."

    Plenty of room , garage around the corner but that’s not a problem. One small criticism was the outside terraces were in need of some attention, furniture old and the patios were broken in several places , this didn’t spoil our holiday. Excellent communication from Dream cottages before , during and at the end of our stay . We were a family of 6 adults and this was a perfect property and location excellent as it’s quiet but so easy to walk into Weymouth, and overlooks a lovely cove that you can swim in , a walk to Northe gardens takes about 2 minutes from property, we were sad to go and would having no qualms about returning .

  • "We’ve stayed at Belmont 3-4 times and always enjoyed the beautiful views of the sea from the patio and the ability to accommodate up to 8 people."

    We’ve just had another sunny week in Weymouth and great family time. Our only criticism would be that for a group of 8 there needs to be more than one bin outside for rubbish and recycling as seagulls quickly notice anything left in bags at side of bin. Also it would be great if the owners would replace the tiny freezer in hallway for a large one .

    However, most of the points previously made have been addressed. The property was comfortable and well located. The all important wifi was working fine and the beds comfortable. The views are amazing and the property is set in a quiet, centrally located area, Close to the harbour, beach and shops. We really enjoyed our stay.

    The view is amazing but the property itself is a little tired. Cake wrapper under a wardrobe base to try and level it!, carpets were quite stained, oven was very noisy, no oven gloves provided, broken paving stones on the patio...I could go on. The view is the saving grace.

  • "We were almost put off by the reviews, but having been reassured by Sykes that all was well we went ahead and I have to say that we loved this house."

    The position is wonderful and inside the house it is warm, calm and just what we wanted. The bedrooms and living room was lovely and the views of the calm bay just perfect. I am only sad to be leaving this review because it will probably be impossible to ever book this house again. The house was very clean and the wifi worked fine. There isn't really a garden but several patio areas which are very nice. One bit of feedback for Sykes - there are about 3 very small saucepans and one very large one with no lid. This was not enough for us (family of 4) - o where to cook the potatoes. Please can you put atleast one or better still 2 medium/large saucepans with lids into the house.

  • "Yes there was no internet at the premises, I will be lodging a full complaint."

    This is a joke in this day an age, we could not use iPads, laptops or Netflix, so much for the holiday feel. Dream cottages were worse than useless after my many complaints over the phone and going into the office. Also property was not sufficiently cleaned to a Covid standard, stains on all carpets, no cleaning products provided in bathrooms at all, no extra toilet rolls, pots an pans so old they are unusable, interior shabby an unclean. Not value for Money for the expensive price of property.

  • "This year has been hard for everyone and we were really looking forward as a family to our holiday."

    The Rule of Six suddenly imposed problems meaning half our party had to find a place nearby to stay. Nevertheless our holiday worked out really well, the house, Belmont, has lovely rooms with the most fantastic views across Newton's Cove and Portland. Some of the other reviews were awful and nearly put us off going and yes, the garden patio badly needs a days attention from a gardener and a bit of money spent to bring it up to standard, but overall the house is in a wonderful spot and recommended. We actually heard passers by saying "fancy waking up to that view every morning"!

    Bedrooms spacious and comfortable again with the most spectacular views. House was roomy enough for 8 adults and a small dog however the size of fridge and freezer (Small)made things a tad difficult as we like to arrive with a week’s shopping. House could do with updating. According to locals was last done more than 19 years ago. Garden could do with a tidy up. But all in all, the location, view and weather made this a great family holiday.

  • "Beautiful location overlooking Newton’s Cove."

    Since we last stayed in this property 2yrs ago, it is in great need of repainting. The WiFi signal is so weak you cannot get the benefit of it. The settee is uncomfortable and gives you a bad back. The single beds need new mattresses as they are all lumpy. The local youths hang out in Newton’s cove in an evening now shouting and screaming and some mornings didn’t leave until 4am. We will return to dream cottages again, but unfortunately not in this accommodation.

  • "We had a very good holiday taking full advantage of the location on the cove and, mostly, the fine weather."

    Our early morning swim was a highlight every day. The house was great except for three aspects: The fridge was so small (for a party of 6 adults and 2 children) that we went down to Curry’s and bought another one as back up. The garage opening is only wide enough for one car although there is plenty of room inside. As a result we had to evolve a shuttle system of parking which was not ideal as street parking is v difficult to find. The exterior terrace appeared unloved, with bindweed around the edges , and the garden furniture on its last legs - literally!

  • "The Dreams Cottages team responded rapidly to a couple of issues which arose on a bank holiday weekend, and were friendly and helpful."

    Belmont (994001) was a wonderful, spacious, light and bright home from home, and was a fantastic location for a family holiday including 2 children. Ideally situated for coastal walks, strolls to shops and restaurants, and exploring the local area. A very well-maintained house. Some suggestions for Belmont (994001) are: 1) A full-size fridge-freezer - the current little ones are not sufficient for a house accommodating an 8-person group; 2) A better quality television; 3) Replacement/improved-functioning garage door (including frame buffers), as it 'stuck' in various positions on every use. Whilst amazing to have the parking facility available it is not easy to get in and out of, so anything that might make it easier/less stressful would be great.

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!
