  • "Poppies is our home from home!"

    We’ve been coming for years and it’s very comfortable. Love it.

  • "Lovely cottage in a super location near the harbour."

    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.

    Highly recommended.

  • "Just a problem with the step to the door so high had a job to get out."

    The rug in the lounge was such a slip hazard it moved all the time

  • "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.

  • "As there was a jumper left behind the chair the living room had not been thoroughly cleaned."

    However this in no way spoilt our holiday. Home from home!! The location was just perfect and parking a bonus.

  • "The house was really nice comfortable and clean, right in the heart of the harbour."

    Really good to have a parking space right outside the house. Could probably benefit from a better sign outside as we struggled initially to find it, as it's not visible and behind some electric gates but all good

  • "Great to finally get back to Weymouth."

    Really good time had by all and Poppies is a very handy and good base to use. Our third visit to Poppies and we would come again.

    Reviewed by NigelJul 2021

  • "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.

    The place was spotless and the bedrooms were a decent size. It's in a great location, we didn't need to use the car all week. We will definitely be back!

    We had a lovely week in poppies, we have stayed here loads of times, lovely house the only downfall is the shower is a bit small and the water does not come out very quick, also you could do with blackout curtains in the bedrooms, but we would stay there again we stayed here in July and September

  • "Poppies is a lovely holiday home and we found it very conveniently situated close to Weymouth's amenities but quietly located."

    We had two issues regarding the heating which were immediately rectified by the Dream cottages staff whose office was round the corner from us. We've been using Sykes for a number of years and have always had milk provided (even cakes and scones at some places) and spare toilet rolls and refuse sacks were left too, however these were NOT provided in this property.

  • "Pilot light was "off" and extremely difficult to re-light."

    Drying clothes an issue in wet weather, a washer/dryer would be a great help. Unnecessary use of plastic bags in All the waste bins in the house. Location superb and the house was "fitted out" to a high standard.

  • "The second time staying at beautiful Poppies cottage."

    Fabulous location, perfect home from home. Extremely near to all the pubs and restaurants around the beautiful harbour and the parking on site is a massive plus. We've been holidaying with Dream Cottages for at least 15 years and all of the cottages we've stayed in are to a high spec. We're looking forward to our return visit next year.

  • "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.

Located centrally Poppies, like its sister cottage Melanie’s is sure to be one of our most popular holiday cottages in Weymouth.

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!
