  • "Beautiful property in idyllic location."

    We found parking a bit like playing Tetris and had to park in Hope Square a couple of times. Property was not up to usual standard of cleanliness and was probably cleaner when we left! Decor a bit shappy and worn, needs some TLC. Bed on first floor exremely uncomfortable and this bedroom definitely not suited to taller adults.

  • "A lovely cottage in Weymouth Harbour."

    Tastefully decorated and well maintained. We had a parking permit for the local streets which enabled us to park right outside. We were there at the beginning of July so there were no parking issues. Not sure what it would be like in the main season, however there is a local car park at Nothe fortress that is a 2 minute walk away and the all day charge was £6 on an online app, which we thought was really reasonable as an alternative. For those who need it the Wi-Fi in the cottage was excellent and accessible in all rooms. Would definitely go back.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you liked the cottage. Do come back and visit again - you would be most welcome! Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

  • "An excellent property in a great location, well equipped and well managed."

    As life-long visitors to Weymouth, we believe the harbour side of town with the Nothe Fort, Hope Square and all the pubs and cafes much the best area in which to stay. We haven’t rated this cottage five stars only because every sound from the top floor en suite (shower, lavatory etc) was quite audible in the bedroom below, as was every tread on the creaky stairs. This did cause the odd sleepless night. It’s maybe not a big issue and one to be expected in old properties but we probably wouldn’t stay here again because of this.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you liked the property and its location so much. We will keep an eye out for the issue you mention, which we haven't encountered before. But, as you say, the cottage is old (over 200 years old!). And should you decide that you would like to stay again, you would be most welcome. Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

  • "The location was terrific and the accommodation suited the needs of our party of 4 adults and 2 children perfectly."

    It was comfortable and attractively decorated and furnished. One minor fault - the handle on the inside of the sliding door to the shower room in the 1st floor en suite was missing.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We do hope that you will come and stay again. Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

  • "Perfect property for our holiday."

    It's in a great location, right along the harbour, with everything you need close at hand - shops, pubs, places to eat. The house is very well equipped, and very comfortable. We felt quite at home there for the few days we stayed!

    Thank you so much for your glowing feedback. We are so glad that you felt so at home and enjoyed your stay! Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

  • "We stayed here for three weeks during October."

    House with really good views over the harbour. It's obviously an old building, but refurbs have been nicely done. The ground floor doesn't look its best with loads of black scratches, and that gives a poor first impression. I understand why it has been done that way, but having a kitchen and main toilet on a different level to the lounge didn't suit us.

  • "Our second stay at Harbourside cottage, Location is ideal and the size of the dwelling suits is great."

    However we do feel the overall appearance of the cottage is looking a little tired now, and whilst we had a great time some additional upkeep could improve this cottage. Weeds In the front and courtyard could be addressed.The courtyard is small but isn’t inviting to sit out and eat in the current condition and could be made much more welcoming with upgraded outdoor furniture. The cottage needs a freshen up and carpets could do with replacing, Decor and paint work could do with some attention also The top floor double room has the most uncomfortable mattress and you can feel every spring. Some simple fixes could make this cottage even better.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you had a great time. We have noted all your helpful points, which will take into account as we continue to improve the cottage further. We do hope that you will come back and stay for a third time! Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

  • "We’ve stayed here well over 10 times, so clearly we like the property."

    The annoyance this year is that we were told that, unlike previously, a parking permit would not be supplied. At considerable inconvenience we travelled by train this year, and were unable to further explore the area by car. We then found out that a different permit was supplied so we could have used the car.

    We are so sorry that you were not told about the new parking permit. Unfortunately, Dorset Council unexpectedly withdrew the previous permit that enabled guests to park both in Weymouth and around about (Chesil Beach etc). However, we now have a permit that allows guests to park right outside the cottage (rather than close-by at Nothe Gardens), which we hope is a welcome improvement. We are pleased that you have enjoyed staying at the cottage so often, and do hope that you will come and stay again. Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

  • "A well equipped holiday let in an excellent position."

    The outside space let the property down as it was dirty drab and could do with some tlc. The inside was tired and probably needs a refurb. One parking place for a six persons let is not enough and future customers with more than one car should add another £40 per car onto their holiday costs. The key safe is a pain but dream cottages kindly provided an extra key which was very useful. Overall a good place to stay

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed staying at the cottage. We will take into account the points you have raised as we continue to make improvements to the cottage. We do hope that you will come and stay again. Marc & Milly (Owners) Property Owner

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 parking is at DT4 8UD Nothe car park a few minutes walk.

Please Note: One parking permit available until 31/03/2025 for Harbourside Zone L subject to spaces being available and council renewal.
