  • "Lovely stay at Fenders (perfect weather helps of course!"

    ). Great location, good facilities and a wonderful walled garden for the pooch

  • "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!

  • "Loved the cottage."

    No parking outside was a bit of a problem. Inaccurate key safe number given on directions so couldn’t get in on first day. Had to phone the office. Good location. Easy access to all facilities. Variety of places to eat . Good dog friendly places.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, a real home from home.

  • "Excellent cottage - we loved it - so central to everything."

    Pity no off road parking, but the parking permit was excellent and just a few minutes away to walk anyway.

  • "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!

  • "The house was very nice."

    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.

    This was all looked at promptly and the guy that came round to access the issues was really friendly and sorted the back door there and then,

    Everything in cottage was lovely very close to all amenities unfortunately weather could have been better but we still had great holiday my son loved going up to Portland bill one thing that was slightly amiss was lack of cupboard space to put groceries in as I like to do our own cooking but cooking facilities were brilliant would go back again and would also recommend to friends

  • "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

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!
