  • "We, as a family, have enjoyed a yearly visit to Buccaneer Cottage, starting in March 2016 for my youngest son’s 50th birthday and again this year for my eldest son’s 60th, and, as usual, found the accommodation excellent for these family get-togethers."

    The location on the harbour-side provides excellent access to nearby Nothe Gardens, Weymouth beaches and town centre and numerous eating and drinking establishments as well as having a beautiful harbour on the doorstep All-in-all a very pleasant, comfortable place to choose for an enjoyable holiday. Dream Cottages even provided beautiful sunshine for the whole week we were here this year. Who could ask for more?

  • "As mentioned to the cleaners, it would be good to provide spare rubbish bags as just one for a family of 5 was insufficient, we had to leave items on the floor and also put some in the public bins."

    Also a sponge/scourer for washing up is needed. Everything else was great.

  • "Having paid £30 for the week in the recommended near by car park to then find a parking permit which was not mentioned in the booking and advised to park in the near by car park was disappointing, an extra £30 i did not need to spend."

    The cottage should be advertised stating a parking permit is available for 1 vehicle use.

  • "We took a short break in Weymouth and we were very happy with the cottage."

    It is in a perfect location with easy access to everything you might need and great views. Parking was no problem at all, with the use of the parking permit we parked right out front for the whole holiday. The cottage itself is equipped with everything you might need, was clean and comfortable throughout. We had a slight problem with the keypad, but mainly due to our inexperience, Dream Cottage staff were excellent, let us in and showed us what we had done wrong so it worked perfectly when we left. We would highly recommend this cottage and are thinking of booking it again ourselves next year.

  • "The location of this property is great, but unfortunately the property itself doesn’t appear to have been maintained in any shape or form."

    There is a ‘damp’ smell that was continuously coming from the lower ground double, the mattress in this room sank in the middle. The mattress in the double on the top floor was so hard and gave us back ache the whole holiday. In the main lounge area the carpets are in dire need of replacing as is the sofa and the single chair in there which had rips in it as did the cushions. Overall the property needed some TLC!!!

  • "Perfect location."

    Lovely cottage, massive shout out to the owner who very generously sorted a problem prior to our arrival. We looked at booking again for next year whilst we were there, just a massive pity for us that the price increase has meant we're unable to enjoy such a lovely place owned by such nice people.

    Having said that we would book for 2022 but the price is to high when you start looking around i think £1200.00 to 1500.00 for this property is plenty for a week

    Thank you for your feedback, following this, the owner has purchased new mattresses for all the beds in the property. We do hope you return again soon. Property Owner

  • "Great location With easy walkable access to everything we needed."

    The property could have been much cleaner throughout. There was lots of dust on the 3 floors and the when we lifted the table runner on the dining table this clearly had not been wiped/cleaned for months so was not very hygienic. The bathrooms on all floors also needed a good deep clean. House had all we needed and Sykes Cottages were helpful when the WiFi did not work. Sykes Cottages could have warned us about the building works taking place in the house next door and the workmen vehicles blocking access to the property and windows. This was not the fault of the men carrying out the works who were all polite to us but the noise of cement mixers, circular saws, skips being delivered, trucks delivering building materials etc was not the sound of the working harbour we had expected. All in all a great holiday let down by a few simple corrections.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Buccaneer Cottage, (2 couples)."

    The house was clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Even though we travel with everything including food and drinks, on our arrival it was nice to see a welcome pint of milk in the fridge and also a small box of biscuits. The property was well placed within the marina/harbour, lovely views and sunsets on an evening, even better views from the attic bedroom. We were very lucky to have good weather for the full week we were there. The harbour has an excellent fish and chip shop (Bennetts) which was only a 2 minute walk - absolutely delicious and plenty of them! There were ample pubs and inns serving food with plenty of outside seating areas (although we didn't try them) and Afternoon Cream Teas to be found everywhere! Asda was only a ten minute walk if you didn't want to take the car. An easy stroll in to the town centre with a good selection of shops, from the harbour front and across the bridge (5/10 mins at the most), and another 5 minutes to the beach. In the opposite direction was Nothe Fort and the lovely Nothe Gardens with lots of squirrels, carry on a little further round the coast and you come to Newtons Cove, looked lovely for swimming and with views across to Portland. We had some lovely dog walks around the area everyday. Also plenty of places to visit by car if you want to go further afield. The only negative issue was the renovation work going on at the house next door starting early morning, disturbing my parents who were in a downstairs bedroom. However, we were advised of this when booking so can't really complain, it didn't spoil the holiday and will be finished soon.

    Also you have builders starting work at 7.30 am starting generators up and someone working in a workshop till 9.00 pm vans are parked up against the front door you have a job to get in and out we did report this to dreams cottages but nothing was done.

  • "Thank you to the owners and Dream Cottages for once again providing us with an ideal accommodation for a family break."

    This is the 5th time we have used the facilities at Buccaneer Cottage and as in the past have been more than satisfied. Unusually there were two small negatives this year, the first was that there was no spare key and the second that it was a puzzle that the cutlery drawer could not be opened without first opening the oven door, as this has never been a problem on our past visits I can only assume that a new oven has been fitted although this is not obvious. However, this did not distract from the fact that this is an ideal accommodation for a family get together, the harbour side location could not be bettered and the proximity to the nearby eating establishments and pubs is good and the impressive nearby Nothe Gardens with its walks and views is superb, add on to that the Weymouth shopping centre and beach is only a short walk away and you have the ideal holiday location. Once again, thank you.

    Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Christmas tree and decorations the owners had provided for our enjoyment and the cleanliness of the cottage. Our stay was made even better as my 8 year old granddaughter had persuaded her Mum and Dad to join her in braving the cold to take part in the Weymouth Lions charity swim across the harbour which they all successfully completed. The location of this cottage, right on the harbourside, couldn't be better and the accommodation is ideal for our families purpose.

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!
