  • "A lovely cottage in a very convenient place for buses etc."

    All the linen and towels were high quality and was great to be provided with plenty of loo rolls, kitchen roll, wood for the burner etc A very well equipped kitchen so we didn’t eat out, preferring to enjoy the lovely light kitchen and cosy living room with the wood burner.

    Thank you so much for your lovely positive comments Annie. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean, tidy, well presented and plenty of kitchen items to use."

    Beds were very comfy too. We has a great stay, 7 of us in total with 3 small children. The stairs were very steep so would recommend a stair gate, but we blocked this with our suitcases to ensure the kids did not fall down if they got up at night. Parking is steep and limited but no issue really especially with the garage. We all had a great stay, location perfect too for ease to get to places. Thank you. Lovely pre Xmas break and the cottage had lovely Xmas decorations too which was a nice touch....and we had our own elf on the shelf that visited us so the kids were over the moon with 'snowflake'

  • "The property suited our requirements perfectly."

    We were on holiday with family to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. The lounge felt cosy, especially with the log burner in use, but also offered plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen diner was lovely. Often whoever was cooking was joined by everyone else sat round the table chatting and enjoying the bright space. The bedrooms were comfortable and all had plenty of storage. The garage, accessed from the utility, was brilliant as it allowed us to get our 5 month old granddaughter in and out of her car seat in the dry! Having one car in the garage also created more space for our other car to park in front of the property. We had a wonderful week and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Fisherbridge cottage. It’s one of the best places my husband and I have stayed in and we’ve been renting Sykes properties for several years. The location was great for visiting Weymouth and Dorchester. A special mention for the garden centre at Poundbury which looks amazing with all their Christmas displays. Definitely worth a visit.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. It means a lot to us. We are so glad you had an enjoyable stay and hope to see you again sometime. Thank you also for leaving the property so clean after your stay - always much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property."

    It would be nice to have the following. Paper towels, some dish towels, and basic provisions. We only had 3 small rolls of toilet paper. No extras on site.

  • "This property was everything we expected it to be and more."

    It is comfortable and spacious and beautifully presented .The guest information book was very useful, right down to operating instructions for all the kitchen appliances, log burner and heating. Many thanks to the property owner for the welcome pack, and we hope to return sometime in the future. We definitely recommend this property as not only is it lovely, its location is ideal for being not too far from places of interest and the beach.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your time at the cottage and would love to see you back again some time :) Property Owner

  • "We stayed for a week and the cottage was fantastic."

    We had 7 adults and 1 child. Plenty of room for everyone and a very high spec of finish. This is the best cottage I have stayed in. If I return in a large group to the area this will be the first place I look to see if it is available.

  • "A lovely property, very clean, kitchen equipped to a very high standard with plenty of everything needed."

    Some nice touches on arrival, such as slippers and bathroom products. The welcome pack of items left on the kitchen table was lovely, as was the pink Prosecco in the fridge! The location was great for us, as was the very handy Spa shop over the road. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return to Fisherbridge Cottage if we were in the area again in the future.

  • "The property is beautifully presented and within easy access to all that Weymouth and the surrounding area has to offer."

    We did find that although the property lists a microwave there didn’t appear to be one unfortunately. Also the stairs to the bedrooms are steeper than some people may be used to, also the designated parking zone, although visitors could make use of the garage to park their car.

    Hello. Thanks so much for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and the area. I wish you had called the number provided so that we could have told you how to use the microwave. It's a bit confusing as the smaller of the two ovens is a combination oven and microwave. The instruction manual is in the guest folder, but if you've never used a combination oven/microwave before I can understand it would look like there wasn't a microwave there. I take your points about the parking. The space at the side of the garden is steep but there is also a space opposite the cottage. However, it's not clearly labelled as parking for Fisherbridge Cottage so we will correct that! Best wishes, Property Owner

The property

Enjoying a fantastic location within the coastal village of Preston, in Weymouth, Dorset is this lovely stone-fronted, detached cottage, Fisherbridge Cottage.

Welcoming seven guests to relish an idyllic seascape, Fisherbridge Cottage boasts close proximity to a wide range of amenities, including three pubs and two convenience stores which are just moments away, a bright and airy interior, as well as an enclosed garden and off-road parking guaranteeing a homely and stress-free stay.

The beach at Bowleaze Cove is an easy walk from the cottage, while the gorgeous sandy beach at Weymouth and the bustling harbour with its selection of restaurants and shops are a short drive.

Cross the threshold to discover a thoughtfully-appointed sitting room, embellished with a woodburning stove and Smart TV as well as nautical themed décor throughout.

You are guaranteed to truly inhabit the peacefulness of a coastal retreat here.

Kick-back and relax as the designated chef prepares a feast in the fully-fitted kitchen, to be enjoyed at the dining table that can be extended to seat up to eight, as you toast to a fabulous holiday over a bottle of fizz, or two.

Take advantage of the handy dishwasher and make washing up a distant memory, whilst a washing machine and tumble dryer guarantees your holiday wardrobe remains feeling fresh.

When the sky grows dark, retreat to a sumptuous family bathroom and indulge a long soak in the tub or complete your evening skincare routine in the master en-suite shower room ahead of sinking into a plush double bed to rejuvenate before another day of exploring.

From your doorstep, you’ll arrive at a whole host of family-friendly attractions, including the sweeping sands of Bowleaze Cove, Nothe Fort – Weymouth’s historic sea fort, Sandworld, a unique collection of sand sculptures, and the SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth, where you can expand your knowledge of marine life.

The Jurassic Coast offers some stunning walks.

You can walk from the cottage to the coast path at Bowleaze Cove where you can carry on to the Smugglers Inn at Osmington Mills or enjoy a walk on the coast around the lighthouse at Portland Bill, just a short drive away.

Further attractions include the hill figure of King George III cut into the limestone of Osmington Hill dubbed Osmington White Horse, as well as Lodmoor Country Park and the National Trust owned Max Gate, the former home of Thomas Hardy which can be located in Dorchester.

Travelling towards Salisbury, enjoy a tour of the Salisbury Museum, bask in the magnificent architecture of the Salisbury Cathedral, or relish a picnic on the grounds of Harnham Water Meadows.

Or head towards Poole and experience pretty Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle and the beautiful beach at Studland Bay.

Experience all of this and more at Fisherbridge Cottage.
