  • "Lovely cottage perfectly positioned for us and quiet,also very clean tidy could not fault it"

  • "Very clean and cosy house."

    Good location near the north harbour area only a short walk to the bars, restaurants and beach. One small improvement - the towel rail in the shower room was not working so it was rather chilly in this room, when showering.

    Would recommend washing line outside to peg washing out. Also, shower chair in wet room would be the icing on the cake. Fab location, lovely house and garden, great for dogs and us humans. Would visit again.

  • "Loved our stay here."

    3 adults, 1 dog. Only street parking but never had a problem. Small but great secure cottage garden for the dog. Steep but short hill to the house from Brewers Quay. Pubs, food & harbour only minutes away. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "On initial arrival everything looked good and clean on the surface unfortunately after being there about an hour we noticed food crumbs and dog hair between the cushions on the settee, also my dog lost her ball under the cooker which had a 4" gap under it when I retrieved the ball I was horrified to find mouldy bits of food that had obviously been there some time."

    Also outside the backdoor was a smelly rubbish sack left from the previous people I then noticed an accumulation of dust around the base of the double bed and even worse underneath. On the Sunday we notified sykes of our findings and the dust and dirt issues was rectified that day but the rubbish was not picked until Thursday which had attracted quiet a few flies so on this occasion the cleanliness fell short, also the garden needs some maintenance.

  • "We had the most amazing stay at Fenders."

    It was in a perfect location just 5 mins walk to the harbour side. Fenders was clean and comfortable and has the most beautiful cottage garden which was a little sun trap. We would definitely stay there again. The cottage was also perfectly located for a beautiful dog walk over the fields overlooking Nothe Gardens. Many thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage.

    One suggestion would be to improve the lighting. All the lights and lamps were very bright and harsh. Since we were there in the winter, we really wished for warm, cozy lighting options for the dark nights.

  • "Cottage was quite small for tjree people and a dog."

    Garden was more of a yard. Location was great. Wet room downstairs was a bit of an issue as it took ages to dry and you had to walk through the house with wet feet

  • "The sofa needs replacing as the springs are all shot."

    Could replace the master bedroom side tables with much smaller ones to fit in a king size bed. The TV set up is poor and needs updating. Great location.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and pleased you loved the location of Fenders. The owner takes all feedback on board and has now ordered a new sofa to make their guests stay more comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you back to Dream Cottages again soon. Property Owner

  • "The property needed a new dose of TLC."

    Location and most facilities were adequate. However the main settee was basically on its last legs and needs replacing. Beds were comfortable , wet room interesting, galley kitchen , great for 1 person in the kitchen. However we did enjoy our stay and would return to sunny Weymouth.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. The owner has now ordered a new for her guest’s comfort and the property will be spruced up over the winter. We look forward to welcoming you back to Weymouth again soon. Property Owner

  • "Great location, close to restaurants and harbour in a quiet street."

    Parking permit was useful a couple of times but we did get local street parking nearby most of the time. Instructions for access to cottage were perfect. We weren't very keen on the wet room arrangement downstairs but glad of the upstairs toilet. The cottage is lovely, with everything you need and the secluded garden an added bonus!

  • "Fabulous location!"

    Short walk to anywhere. Near to the town and harbour on one side and the sea and Nothe Gardens the other! Excellent dog exercise park about 5 minutes away too with beautiful views! Cottage comes with a parking permit for some carparks although we mostly parked in the road the cottage was on. Very useful having 2 toilets (one upstairs, one down) and the wet room was great. Extremely comfortable cottage (mattress was excellent!) and is much larger than it appears from the outside. Beautiful cottage style garden was a bonus and a real suntrap! Would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to again!

    Everything we needed was provided.The disappointing aspect was the garden.We understood it was a country garden before booking.It was very overgrown and lots of weeds on paths and patios and several dead plants.The garden furniture was very grubby.We were lucky that the weather was very good but we felt unable to use the garden.Dream Cottages contacted the owner and we were offered some compensation which was kind but we would much rather have been able to sit in the garden.I hope some improvement will be made to the garden so other clients can enjoy it.

  • "Cottage looked a lot bigger than it was on the video on your website."

    Kitchen very cramped only one person could be in at one time and for a family like us who do all our meals normally very uncomfortable. Location was spot on and the garden would have been nice if it were not so overgrown. Bushes needed a good trim, washing line couldn’t turn as got stuck in bush. No broom, did not want to use a large hoover every time. Having been with Dream Cottages for 10 yes plus most time at least twice a year, did not think this cottage was anywhere near as good as some we have had and definitely not worth the money we paid. Sorry.

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!

Note: Nearest pay and display council car park is Nothe Car Park DT4 8UD a 10 minute walk
