  • "This was our second stay at Poppies, it was nice to see the new lounge furniture and the chairs with the footstalls we’re particularly comfortable."

    The overall cleanliness of the property was good and it was lovely to have a welcome hamper and milk on arrival. There was an issue with the microwave and the fridge but these was sorted straight away. Overall a very comfortable stay and amazing weather.

  • "The property was amazing , the location was superb too."

    The hamper that was left for us on arrival was great and a really nice touch. The property was spotless and very modern , we could not fault it. It was a lovely property to come back to and relax after a day on the beach or exploring Weymouth. We cant wait to return. We absolutely love Weymouth and this property is the best we have stayed in for sure.

    The lady who came midway through to change the bed linen was very nice and friendly. She even took time to tell us about local attractions. We have booked with Sykes cottages many times and hope to continue.

  • "Popped is a wonderful place to stay."

    It's very well placed, and having car parking is great. The decor is lovely and the whole house is light and airy. The only problem we found was that we had to clean the shower drain of a lot of accumulated hair which was preventing drainage -before we could have a first shower. Not a pleasant task. However this would not prevent us from recommending Poppies as a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely be returning.

    It was very clean and very nicely furnished. The only observation was no towel in the downstairs loo so we used one out of the spare unused bedroom. The Dorset Happy Hamper and pint of milk was much appreciated. We highly recommend this property. 5Star. Thank you.

  • "This was definitely one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in."

    The house is kept to a high standard, extremely well equipped and excellently situated. A particular thanks for the buckets and spades which we found under the stairs! Like others we were frustrated by the unavailability of recycling facilities but we appreciate this is beyond your control and will be contacting Dorset Council separately about this.

    Reviewed by Matthew5.0Oct 2022

  • "We were very pleased with the property overall."

    Just a couple of points - the shower needs a good clean around the base. We were disappointed not to be able to recycle waste, although we understood the instructions that the let was treated as a commercial property. In these days could not a case be made for environmentally friendly domestic waste disposal on holiday lets?

    Very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. Only negatives were that the heating was off when we arrived at 5pm so the house was freezing cold, and no tea bags or milk so we couldn’t even warm up with a cup of tea! Not a very warm welcome.

  • "Overall the cottage was cleaned to a good standard but unfortunately they failed to do any dusting."

    We arrived at 5pm to find the cleaner had left her car in our space and did not collect it until 5.50pm which was not acceptable and we had to park in the visitors space instead. There needs to be a washer dryer especially when we had young children staying and the weather was not hot enough to effectively dry the clothes on the airer outside. The rug in the lounge needs to be secured as it is a tripping hazard We we’re confused by the arrangement of both bedrooms. Surely the double bedroom should have better storage, our grandchildren ended up with a large wardrobe, chest of drawers and tv which was totally unnecessary. The mattress protectors were badly stained and both mattresses need to be replaced as they both dip in the middle. It would be helpful to have clothes hooks on the back of the bedrooms and bathroom doors.

  • "Cleaned to a decent standard except for a random jumper that was left next to the sofa."

    From reading the previous guests reviews it seems this jumper has been hanging around for a while. Perfect location for local restaurants and pub but it can get a bit noisy when the neighbours come staggering back. The fridge had a lot of water inside and the freezer was "sort of out order". The sofa and bed was very comfortable and the TV was a good size. Also free Netflix courtesy of Alison :) Dreams cottages were very helpful when we had to delay our holiday due to Covid.

  • "This is our third year with Dream Cottages and have never found any problems and never found the ned to complain about anything."

    Your service is impeccable and the whole booking experience is faultless. Poppies, as was Melanies 3 years ago and Dolphin last year was spotlessly clean, the facilities and equipment available is amazing never having to request anything special to meet our needs. The location is amazing, the weather was outstanding, I do realise the Dream Cottages cannot do anything about that but this is the third year of good weather. The accommodation is ideal for getting about Weymouth and Dorset, it's roomy and quiet. Love it, if we return to Weymouth again we will definitely choose Dream Cottages to find our accommodation. 10 out of 10 for everything. Stayed July 2018

The property

Poppies is a mews style two bedroom property in Kellaway Court, Weymouth.

This holiday cottage cleverly combines characterful features and stylish considered interior with contemporary touches that bring the property up to date, while losing none of its original charm. The contemporary décor of red and grey colours, in the sitting room is a perfect place to sit back and relax as a family, playing games or chill after a busy day.

The modern kitchen with bar table and chairs allows you to sit and chat whilst preparing a snack to eat.

Heading upstairs you will find two airy and light bedrooms.

This property is just a stroll from the harbourside, where you can sit and enjoy a drink in one of the many restaurants or pubs.

Or maybe sit on the harbour wall with fish and chips and enjoy a spot crabbing with the family.

The property is situated in Kellaway Court; a, gated development on an area which, for many years, was used for brewing beer.

Whilst beer is no longer brewed, this this location many of the historic buildings remain and add to the character of the Quay.

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: Allocated parking in electronically gated area.
