  • "Lovely cottage and really spacious inside."

    Only niggle was the blinds in the bedrooms need replacing as you can't fully close them and this lets the light in, or curtains need to be installed as well.

    Thankyou for your lovely review. We have since had the bedroom blinds replaced. Thankyou for bringing this to our attention. Property Owner

    Location was perfect, area lovely and we were very comfortable

    Thankyou very much for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you reporting the problems so that we could get them sorted for you quickly Property Owner

  • "Very conveniently located property, very close to the harbour, local cafes, pubs and restaurants, but also reasonably quiet."

    One item that would be a definite plus, is a dishwasher, just a small counter top one would be fine. Double bed mattress should be replaced with a more comfortable one. The single beds were very good. We will be back again

    It's a lovely location, clean and spacious. The only thing that could make it better is nicer seating in the courtyard.

  • "Great place to stay very near the harbour with all its pubs and restaurants."

    Can be noisy in that area especially at the weekend. The house is large and well set up. I would book here again.

    Thankyou very much for your lovely review and we look forward to welcoming you to Louisa cottage again soon Property Owner

  • "We all had a lovely holiday in Louisa cottage."

    Location was excellent. Brewers quay area is lovely for pubs restaurants and entertainment. But still close to the town. The cottage is nice with plenty of room for a family. The only complaint was the mattress were far too hard I would definitely recommend this cottage. Already booked for next year

  • "I payed a lot less for Quay Cottage and got a 5 star experience."

    The front room light didn't work, the outside panel on patio doors is falling off, the shower plug in main bathroom is slightly blocked had to stay in shower till water went down, no secondry glazing in main bed room, most of the window blinds didn't work properly, the extention lead in twin bedroom is showing bear wires which is a fire hazard, no cleaning products under sink which would have helped covid cleaning but what made me really angry was we didnt get in till 6.00pm. Oh and no highchair as requested till 24hrs later.

  • "We were planning to use the internet for home schooling during our week In Weymouth , unfortunately the internet was down and it took 4 days and daily visits in to the agents before the company even looked into it."

    Really disappointed that this could have not been resolved , it appeared very little attempt was made to try and sort this out for us and we left after a week with no internet access.

  • "I was disappointed in this accommodation."

    We arrived to find a bag of laundry by the entrance. There were issues with the boiler. When we went upstairs there were large cobwebs on the windows-how the cleaner failed to see these was a mystery as the windows were open. In the upper rooms the bedside lamps were unplugged-one had a broken bulb and when we moved the furniture to plug them in the beds in both upstairs rooms had lots of dust (I would think several weeks worth) under the beds where we also found the alarm clocks. The toilets were not clean neither was the shower in the main bathroom-this room was also very dusty in the corners and the radiator was covered in fine dust-possibly talcum. The shaving light didn't work. Only one tea towel was provided for the entire week and two toilet rolls, a situation I found hard to believe as this was a property which slept five. There was no hand towel in the kitchen and a missing bulb. The outside area was described as a patio-in fact it was a broken concrete yard with black mold on the walls, weeds and wooden garden furniture which was unusable unless you were a collector of splinters. We spoke to the agent who said the property had been "deep-cleaned" prior to our arrival. i have rented property both in England and abroad and have never stayed antwhere where the kitchen was completely devoid of basic foodstuffs ie salt, pepper, oil etc.

The property

A spacious period cottage located in one of the most picturesque and popular areas of Brewers Quay in Weymouth which plays host to a few festivals throughout the year.

Several steps from the front door is the Old Harbour where you can try your hand at crabbing with children.

In the summer months you can barely see a free spot along the harbour to do so!

Watch the famous lifting Town Bridge going up every two hours (you can check the times on the bridge itself) and admire this unusual mechanism allowing boats and yachts in and out the Marina. Bright, airy and lovely decorated rooms with harbour views, the well-equipped kitchen and sitting room with dining table for you to enjoy a tasty evening meal or family breakfast - all together make a perfect holiday home in Weymouth for you to experience. There is a selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs, perfect for trying the freshly caught sea food.

Visiting one of the traditional fish and chips is a must too.

Walk along the Harbour and you will reach beautiful Nothe Fort and gardens where you can enjoy a picnic and an afternoon stroll.

The town centre with its high street shops and local individual shops, cinema and bowling are a leisurely stroll away, as is the golden, long and sandy award-winning main beach with its shallow bathing waters.

Venture further along the esplanade, on your left you will see RSPB Lodmoor which makes a good day out spotting a variety of wildlife.

Further you will reach Preston, a beautiful suburb of Weymouth which is popular with water sports enthusiasts Bowleaze cove and sandy beach.

If you walk towards West, you will reach the National Sailing Academy as well very popular with sports enthusiasts.

Either path you take, you can be sure of the beautiful scenery that will be leading the way. Just short drive away from Weymouth is the market town of Bridport and county town of Dorchester with array of shops, from high street to local businesses, beautiful narrow streets and museums.

Not too far from Bridport is the popular place of West Bay with gorgeous cliffs and pebble beach.

If you wish to explore further, you will reach two very popular locations for fossil hunting – Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Louisa Cottage is a, bright, lovely and spacious cottage close to all local amenities and the town centre, beach for all the family to enjoy.

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 the Nothe car park DT4 8UD a few minutes walk.
