  • "Lovely place good location would have been helpful if there was a few cleaning sprays and toilet cleaner."

    It does have 2 bedrooms but think you would struggle with four people as living room small but for us 2 it was fine had a great holiday

    The property was clean, cosy and homely and had everything we needed. The bed was really comfortable and there were plenty of hangers to hang all of our clothes. The location was perfect, being just a short walk from the harbour. We loved our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Great location, very clean and comfortable."

    We had a lovely break thank you. Well equipped. My only suggestions would be to consider providing bin bags and perhaps some basics eg. Salt and pepper. It would also be nice to have somewhere to store food. We also mentioned to dream cottages about the wooden bar over the gate: this either needs to be removed or a mind your head sign/padding installed as my husband hit his head on it. However these are minor points and the cottage is overall great.

    Glad that you enjoyed your stay at Kingfisher Cottage and thank you for taking time to provide feedback. Apologies regarding the bin bags, this must have been an oversight as they are usually provided. I take all of your points on board and hope to welcome you back in the future Property Owner

    Thank you for your valuable feedback and hope you enjoyed your stay at Kingfisher Cottage. We do appreciate the parking spaces are a little tight when parking 2 cars and will look at clarifying the property description to reflect this Property Owner

  • "What a wonderful stay!"

    ! We couldn’t have asked for a better week weather wise and the house was just perfect. A lovely, quiet area and parking is a bonus. Just a short walk into Brewers Quay for the harbour and a further ten mins over the bridge and into town. The house was so clean and the furnishings made it very homely. Beds were really comfortable and plenty of towels left. Fully equipped for all our cooking needs and it was lovely to use the conservatory and garden in the nicer weather. It’s a real sun trap out there in the afternoons! Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Delighted that you had such an enjoyable stay and that everything was perfect for you. Property Owner

    It is beautifully decorated and well maintained. The owners have literally thought of everything, including cushions for the outdoor patio furniture, beach windbreaker and buckets and spades. The cottage is in the perfect location and the two car parking spaces at the rear of the property are absolutely priceless in Weymouth. We shall look forward to staying there again. Thank you for a wonderful holiday in Weymouth.

  • "Very clean and comfortable."

    Ideal size for a family of four. The area is very quiet and only 2min walk to the coastal path with lovely views out to sea. The house has everything you need if you need to cook and even in October the conservatory was warm enough to eat in. The house was also warm and rarely needed the heating on. Beds were very comfy and we were provided with plenty of towels. Park at the back of the house and walk through the back gate into the house for unloading the car. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Weymouth.

    Many thanks for your comments. I am so pleased that Kingfisher Cottage had everything you needed and would be delighted to have you stay again when you next visit Weymouth. Property Owner

  • "We were very impressed with Kingfisher Cottage and can only make 2 minor observations."

    It would be helpful if a small hand towel was left in downstairs toilet. Also, one day we had difficulty with key box outside front door with keys inside We informed Dream Cottages who did fix the problem which appeared to be the large back door key was too large for the box and was jamming it closed. I would suggest that only front door key was left in box. But overall we enjoyed our holiday even though it was cut short by 1 day due to rail strike.

    I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. Thank you for your feedback which I fully take on board. Apologies regarding the key, it should not have been in the key safe and is usually kept indoors. Property Owner

    The location was brilliant just a five minute walk from the harbour bars and restaurants but very quite for sleeping. Had a problem with the radiator in the living room but they sent someone to fix it the next day. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back in the summer and make use of the garden.

  • "The house is amazing, just what you need for a very enjoyable holiday."

    The only down side was the kitchen it is so well stocked with everything you could possibly need it leaves very little cupboard space to put food if you want to cook. The big fridge freezer has a very useful water cooler built in which came in very useful on the very hot week we had. The decked area out the back makes a great place to sit of an evening and chill as the sun goes down. The house is well placed with a short stroll down to the harbour and the town with its amazing beach just 10 minutes further.

    Then, the upstairs toilet seat was very broken and there was a plunger for the bathroom sink as it wouldn't drain away. Although we fixed this before leaving. Also in the kitchen and conservatory some of the wooden flooring doesn't meet well, trapping your feet if not careful. Lovely house but in need of some tlc

After entering the property, you will find yourself in the cosy sitting room, with the comfortable sofa inviting you to unwind and put up your feet after your day of walking and exploring all the delights that Dorset has to offer.

Moving through the property will bring you to the light-filled kitchen, where you will find everything you could possibly need to cater for yourself, whether it be a picnic for the beach or a hearty evening meal.

Enjoy your wonderfully prepared family meal in the spacious conservatory/dining room, which can be accessed through the kitchen.

As the evening draws to a close, venture to the two bedrooms, comprising of a king size bed and a twin bedroom, together sleeping four people and served by a sleek family bathroom.

The rear patio is perfect for an alfresco dining, or to unwind with a glass of wine, as you plan your next day’s adventure.

The Maltings is a popular location with holidaymakers due to its tranquil and exclusive residential location, while still close to the popular Brewers Quay area and harbour.

Numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes are all within a leisurely walk and Newton's Cove, favoured by locals and children alike for its rock pools and crabbing, is just around the corner.

The gardens here offer an ideal setting for a picnic and you can watch the sea glistening in the summer sun with views of the isle of Portland in the distance.

The hustle and bustle of Weymouth's award winning main sandy beach with its shallow waters is only a short walk away and has a wide range of family attractions from donkey rides on the beach to traditional Punch and Judy shows and amusement arcades.

Kingfisher Cottage is perfect for both families and couples looking to spend some quality time away, located in the ideal spot to explore the Jurassic Coast.
