  • "Lovely cottage in good location 10 mins walk from station and sea front."

    Bus stop at top of Lennox street on front. Looks newly renovated with new furniture beds very comfortable. Only one complaint the owner really needs to put blackout curtains in front bedrooms as street light right outside so had trouble sleeping.

    Dear Linda Many thanks for your feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We were sorry that the light shining into the front bedroom disturbed your sleep. We have taken measurements and are going to have new curtains/blinds installed soon. Best wishes The Skipper's House ps new curtains are now hanging in both front bedrooms so hopefully this will ensure a good night's sleep Property Owner

  • "Property was dirty upon arrival."

    No curtains in bedrooms, front bedrooms on roadside are extremely lit up at night from the street light directly outside.

    Dear Liam We were very sorry to hear that the property was dirty when you arrived but understand that Dream Cottages, who manage the house and cleaning on our behalf, sent a cleaner in as soon as you raised this with them. Dream Cottages will be monitoring cleaning standards closely from now, so this should not happen again. Thank you for raising this and providing the opportunity to put things right for you. We do hope that you were happy with the final standard of the cleaning and went on to have a lovely stay in Weymouth. Regarding light coming into the front bedrooms, we have taken measurements and are going to have new curtains/blinds installed soon. Best wishes The Skipper's House ps new curtains are now hanging in both front bedrooms so hopefully this will ensure a good night's sleep Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the seaside town of Weymouth, along the beautiful Jurassic coast, close to the beach, The Skipper’s House is a wonderful escape for a family looking to explore the best of Dorset.

Set over two floors, with an enclosed courtyard, The Skipper’s House features a welcoming sitting room, complete with a sofa, two chairs and Smart TV so you can enjoy your favourite shows after a long day.

When appetite picks up, move into the kitchen and cook up a storm, assisted by a range of appliances, before settling down at the dining table and indulging.

Head out through the patio doors from the dining room into the enclosed courtyard and spend those warmer evenings sitting back with a refreshing beverage in hand, toasting to a much-needed escape.

Whisk away upstairs and make yourself comfortable within the bedrooms, offering a double, twin and single, serviced by a gleaming shower room.

The main attraction of Weymouth is its stunning beach, nestled just a stone’s throw away, providing plenty of space for picnicking, sunbathing and engaging in a variety of watersport activities.

Wander the Old Harbour area, lined with quaint fishermen’s cottages, the vibrant harbour and the bustling waterfront, before exploring the narrow streets and dipping in and out of various independent boutiques.

Sample fresh food at one of the many well-established restaurants or pick up a portion of fish and chips for something quick.

For historic sites, visit Tudor House, the Weymouth Museum, Northe Fort or the isle of Portland, connected to the mainland by a causeway.

There’s so much to look forward to with a holiday at The Skipper’s House.
