  • "Lovely modern, extremely well-equipped house in a pleasant and quiet part of Weymouth."

    The cupboard full of clean toys and games was much appreciated by my 2, 5 and 7 year old grandchildren. The house was warm with an endless hot water supply. Walk down to the beach easily managed by the older two children. Two car parking spaces essential for us as we travelled independently. A great week in spite of erratic weather! Would definitely recommend. Note to owner: push-down plug in en-suite doesn't seal basin; couldn't work heated towel rails and there wasn't enough space in bathroom to dry 4 towel sets; grill pan which we didn't use needs a good clean; lighting in bedrooms too dim to read by. Otherwise thanks for letting us stay in your lovely house!

    Home from home.. Ideal spot for walking to Weymouth and sea front. Would highly recommend. Lovely dog walking area 5 mins in car. It is overlooked but as we went out most days not too much of a problem

  • "This is a beautiful property and just a few thing could make it perfect!"

    I think a prop for the washing line would be a great idea. We couldn’t find one and the washing made the line sag. throws for the settees. The outside table and chairs furniture was rusty and looking a bit sad which let the place down, the other settee and chairs were uncomfortable and grubby. Finally, please look at updating the info on places to visit. One of the leaflets was from 2018! Ty

  • "A beautiful house, very clean upon arrival."

    Furnished and decorated to a high standard. Beautiful rooms throughout. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need and more! We would have given it 5 stars if it wasn’t a few things. The house is situated on a very busy estate so you have to be aware of noise from neighbours in all directions. Due to being overlooked we couldn’t understand why there was no privacy blind in the main bathroom. But all that aside we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and was very happy with the house itself.

  • "The Ferns is a well equipped, tastefully decorated property."

    We would have given 4 star plus. But, we did have a couple of issues. A previous visitor had not cleaned a spillage in the oven, which we had to clean some of it before we could use it. The en-suite shower also was not draining away. Fortunately, I was able to clear a blockage in the waste pipe. The property instructions state the management company will not respond to complaints unless they are reported to them. However, we would not wish to waste a day's holiday waiting for someone to come out to fix these issues. We would also not be comfortable with someone attending while we were not there. The book also states that someone attends to the garden once a fortnight. The back garden does not appear to have received much attention. There are weeds growing in the patio and astra turf. There was also a lot of wind- blown debris on the patio, including the bleached carcass of some long deceased garden bird. All that said, these were not enough to spoil our holiday. The property is well situated and comfortable. We would not hesitate to return to The Ferns should we visit Weymouth again.

    The house was lovely and modern and very clean. The location as great we could walk into town and it was a great bass for sightseeing with the car in the area.

  • "We had become slightly worried at the lack of recent feedback but it was the perfect property for two couples and two children, plus two well-behaved dogs."

    As grandparents we enjoyed our stay in the spacious master bedroom with en-suite despite being up two flights of stairs. The property had been painted recently and was spotless. The bathrooms/toilets were immaculate and all the linen/towels were cotton and well-laundered. Parking for two cars - great location close to convenience shops/superstores and a short walk to Weymouth beach and Lodmoor Park, etc. Kitchen/diner was well equipped with plenty of good quality cutlery, crockery and cookware. Everything worked ! The house was cosy and the central heating effective but a couple of blankets would have been nice for colder evenings/nights (at home we always turn our heating down at night but the duvets were only lightweight). Nice to find toys, games and puzzles in the cupboard, and beach toys in the shed. Lots of interesting places to visit within a 30 minute drive e.g. Portland Bill, Abbotsbury Swannery. MonkeyWorld, Durdle Dor. The boys (aged 2 and 5) especially loved Weymouth's clean sandy beach and the donkey ride.

    With a TV in all bed rooms and lounge. It was an ideal location for the Weymouth sea front and shopping in the town and also well situated for exploring Dorset, the house had plenty of travel brochures to help you plan days out, and loads of games if you wanted to stay in for part of the day. We would happily stay there again.

  • "The cottage was good and the location great the disappointment was the property was not cleaned and had not been cleaned properly for weeks."

    The previous guests left sanitary ware in the bathroom bins that if cleaners did go in they did not remove. There were cobwebs down the walls and in the corners. For such a well appointed cottage this was really a big let down. We left it a lot cleaner than we found it. A real shame.

  • "The house was lovely and exceptionally clean and was only 10 minutes to the promenade."

    The only drawback was the garden. The photos have been taken very cleverly to make it look much larger than it really is, in fact its tiny and overlooked by everyone which is not what I actually want from a holiday home. Saying that I'm sure it will suit others as I said it was a lovely house.

  • "The house was well equipped, lovely and clean and was large enough for 6 adults, 1 baby and 1 dog."

    The Ferns is approximately 10 minute walk to the centre of Weymouth and within 5 minute drive of Morrisons, Sainsbury's and Lidl's. The only thing I would suggest is that you have pump soap in the bathrooms and that guests can bring a kettle BBQ. The patio which goes round the side of the house by the shed is big enough to hold this (and is not close to the astro grass). I would also update the photograph in the description of the house as it did not show garden furniture in the picture and we were surprised to see this.

  • "The house was really nice, wasn't overly clean."

    We asked for a cot and after searching for it we found that it was a travel cot without a mattress. This was far from ideal so we had to improvise using bedding from one of the beds. Had we known that it wasn't a proper cot we would have brought our own, very disappointed. There was a stair gate in the listings which was broken, we reported it and were told someone would come and repair it, but no one came. We couldn't use the kettle, there were bits of lime scale that came out when we tried to use it. We expected that the house would be a bit nearer to the beach and facilities. All in all very disappointed.

  • "Nestled in a lovely quiet location even though only a few minutes walk to the main road."

    Only 15 minutes walk to the front at a leisurely pace. Excellent layout in the house. My husband and myself had the top floor with shower/ toilet facilities. I read the reviews before booking but still managed to bang my head on the apex of the roof. Having said that after I did it once, I was aware and that was that. One little point to note from my husband, when shaving, the mirror is to the side of the sink not above in front, but he managed. Beds are extremely comfortable and the sheets even smelled really fresh. We took my mother-in-law who was celebrating her 80th and she loved the house. Our two adult children and our chocolate lab came too and it never seemed overcrowded. It was spotlessly clean. Everything was catered for in the kitchen. A little confused with the recycling of rubbish as the different bins are provided but it does state in the booklet that the house falls under 'commercial waste' with no recycling at present so we put everything into black bags and tied them up and put into the large bins. Hope this was correct. Plenty of room for everyone to sit together in the lounge although the tv has limited channels but the weather was so beautiful we were out every day. Lovely safe enclosed back garden which I thought was grass from the photos but it is artificial grass. Thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and would definitely recommend it. It was great booking with Sykes as we took advantage of the £20 deposit offer with the balance spread over a few months. An excellent company with excellent communication. We would use Sykes again.
