  • "A beautiful home from home."

    Spotlessly clean. Perfect location for all amenities. My only very minor recommendation would be the TV. Normal channels We could not access. The garden was compact and steep however we knew that before booking so no surprise to us. Maybe have more comfortable outdoor furniture. Absolutely loved our stay, would highly recommend this little gem.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We’re pleased that you enjoyed your holiday, and thank you very much for bringing the TV issue to our attention. This will be looked into. Property Owner

    Unfortunately the outdoor space was not secure for my dog (or any dog) as one side of fence was just wire mesh, waist high. Otherwise a, great place but not for dogs.

    Very clean and tidy and smelt lovely when we walked in. Great location for walking to the harbour and town and also for walking our dog in the field behind the property. Very quiet area too which was lovely. Would definitely return.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We’re glad that yourselves and doggie enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely cottage within a short walk of the Weymouth Quayside It was clean and tidy and very well provisioned for a holiday home."

    Only small criticism is that the small lounge suites are a tad low and shallow for people over Hobbit size and for a winter break not comfortable sofa’s. We will book again all being said this property has been maintained to a very high standard by Dream Cottages. Many Thanks. Karen and Kevin

  • "This is a lovely little holiday cottage."

    It had everything we needed and the location was good. We especially liked the gate at the end of the garden as a quicker route to the dog friendly park - which had amazing sea views! There are plenty of places to eat nearby - we especially liked Cactus Jacks and Rockfish (both dog friendly). The cove art gallery is worth a visit too - beautiful local art. It was disappointing that a previous occupant had not adhered to the no smoking rule as this left the property smelling of cigarettes. The maintenance team did explain to us that the carpet and upholstery would be cleaned in the future.

    close to Newtons cove for lovely walks and close to BrewersvQuay and Harbour. May be a TV in the main bedroom be nice add for the future for winter months.

  • "Absolutely enjoyed our stay at Little Tern."

    The back of cottage was a real sun trap. Everything was spotless and had everything you needed and more. It was nice there was a park just up the hill for dog walking especially in the morning. The one thing we would recommend is a non slip bath mat. We would definitely recommend Little Tern. Thank you.

The property

Enjoying the coastal location of Brewers Quay Harbour in Dorset is this marvellous, mid-terrace cottage of Little Tern.

A fantastic base for a family of four to explore the nature-rich and attraction-packed Dorset coast, Little Tern is equipped with a designated parking space, making it an easy task to get around.

Head inside the charming property to be taken in by a delightsome sitting room, where two sofas rest in front of the TV; an ideal spot for post-beach relaxation.

The kitchen/diner is a stylish yet practical space, with shaker-style cabinets offering an array of integrated appliances, including a handy washer/dryer and dishwasher.

Once the foodie of the group has rustled up a tasty meal, enjoy it at the dining table or out in the garden, where a raised terraced area makes for a fantastic alfresco dining area!

As the day winds to a close, head upstairs to find two lovely bedrooms, the first being a double featuring ample storage and tasteful décor, and the second comprising a twin with coastal touches.

The bathroom is close by, a stylish room with metro tiling and monochrome fittings, and is where you can sink into the soothing suds of the bath at the end of the day.

There are plenty of amenities resting a stone's throw away from the property in the Victorian brewery of Brewers Quay Harbour, including the famed restaurant of The Galley Bistro; additionally, The Rodwell Trail, Nothe Fort and Weymouth harbour are just moments away.

Travel a little further into Weymouth, a bustling town offering plenty to do, including its green spaces of Lodmoor Country Park and Radipole Lake, its glorious beaches and range of family-friendly attractions.

Why not travel further inland to Dorchester, the county town of Dorset which enjoys access to the Dorset Sunflower Trail and the remains of Maiden Castle, whilst also hosting a handful of marvellous museums, including The Roman Town House.

Spend some time in the outdoor havens of the Dorset AONB or West Dorset Heritage Coast, or venture to the Isle of Portland and West Lulworth for more coastal fun and gorgeous sights; there is so much to see here!

A memorable stay awaits at Little Tern.

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!

Please note: This property does not accept children under the age of 6 years old due to the steep steps at the rear. Garden may also be unsuitable for guests with reduced mobility.
