  • "We loved our stay at Blanche cottage, it was really clean and had all the facilities we needed."

    It was comfortable and in a great area. The only downside was the parking even though Nothe forte parking is 5 mins walk away the street is narrow and have to walk on the road with kids which isn’t great. Also for loading/ unloading.

  • "This is a lovely cottage close to the centre of Weymouth."

    It looks like it’s been recently painted/refurbed, with lots of quirky little touches. Beds are comfortable and kitchen it well equipped, although more tall glasses needed . Nice size dining table. It was nice and clean. Nice views of sea just outside front door. Quiet location. The parking situation is a bit of a pain, parking is 5 minutes walk from cottage to carpark and the pavement situation in between is not the best, so bringing bags plus children back and fourth was not ideal. Be warned the stairs are very steep and the landing area very tight. So you have to be quite mobile and the set up did make me nervous with 4 year old. However my 8 year old, loved the loft space. The only toilet/shower is downstairs. Shower is fine but the toilet seat was awful. It was broken and incorrect fit for toilet, so kept throwing you off/sliding about. The sofa is uncomfortable and could do with some investment. Easy to get into town and close to Nothe Fort, nice watching the swimmers from the small bay at bottom of stairs.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and liked the cottage. Sorry about the loo seat…it’s been fixed now! Property Owner

  • "Blythe cottage Location of the house is great for those without a car - walking distance to train station, local beaches, shops, cafes and lots of places to eat out."

    The house is in a quiet area just next to a quiet pebble beach where local swimmers gather. Weymouth beach is busy but nice - they have a fun fair on the beach, nice sand and swimming too. You're able to hire chairs and windbreaks etc quite cheaply. Felt restful and peaceful but also local things to do if you're interested. House is really lovely - nicely decorated with well equipped kitchen for cooking. Recycling is only possible taking it to local centre so probably not viable unless you have car. Bathroom is downstairs. Stairs are all quite narrow and steep so something to bear in mind if you have mobility issues. Would be suitable for couple, group or family but note that one of the bedrooms leads to another if privacy would be an issue. No streaming accounts pre-given on TV but can sign into your own streaming accounts. Nice garden, but with the sea so close by that's definitely the main draw! Couple notes: toilet seat doesn't currently fit so that needs some attention from the owners/management company. Also, couldn't see that there were any summer (low tog) duvets provided (although may have missed them) - didn't affect us as weather wasn't that warm, but in hotter weather other options would be helpful. There is underfloor heating on the ground floor which we had to turn on as it got a bit chilly, but bear in mind if takes about 3-4 hours to heat up and even then it's only in certain areas. There is a gas fire which we couldn't figure out but to be fair we're not super familiar with them. All in all we had a lovely stay!

The property

Steps away from Newton's Cove and Weymouth's Old Harbour, on a quiet traffic free lane is Blanche Cottage, a fabulous, three-bedroom home.

Just paces away from a hub of activity, including a wealth of shops, pubs, eateries, attractions, and the beach Blanche Cottage offers a well-equipped base for a group of five guests, looking for a self-catered stay near the coastline.

Park up, unload your belongings, and head indoors to kickstart your break.

Be greeted by the open-plan living space, with plenty of plush seating to relax upon, a dedicated dining area, and a well-appointed kitchen, where you can prepare delicious meals.

Dine indoors or set the patio table to bask in your outdoor space, with the Dorset sunshine above, before returning indoors to catch up on your favourite shows upon the Smart TV.

As day turns into night, catch some rest from either the double, single, or second-floor twin bedrooms, all serviced by a ground-floor shower room.

Complete your morning routine in preparation of a jam-packed itinerary, with plenty of places to visit in the area; Nothe Gardens, Nothe Fort, and Newtons Cove Beach are upon your doorstep, along with a selection of amenities.

Head into the town to also explore Weymouth Museum, Weymouth Beach, Alexandra Gardens theme park, RSPB Radipole Lake, and Lodmoor Country Park, offering something for everyone.

Spend your days near the coast or travel inland to tour Dorchester, home to the National Trust landmark of Max Gate and the Dorset Museum, before returning home for sunset near the shore.

Experience the best of both worlds at Blanche Cottage.

About the location


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!
