  • "As usual Sykes came up trumps."

    Lovely cottage with complete security and in a perfect location. Easy walking distance into Weymouth, two pubs a short walk away glad to see that Weymouth planners had the sense to keep the character of the area. I hope to return soon.

  • "Another lovely stay at the Nuke."

    Everything you need, great pet free property for allergy sufferers like me. Location is perfect you can park the car and walk everywhere. Only negative the hot water tap in the kitchen sounds like air in pipes when used. Just needs to be checked. Will be back again.

  • "Nice cottage in a good location but would not use again or recommend."

    The lack of any sort of Welcome Pack (not even a pint of milk or a tea bag) was very poor. I have never stayed anywhere where there hasn’t been some provisions for at least a warm drink in arrival supplied. Very unwelcoming and a very poor show on the owners and agency’s part.

    We are glad you liked the property and are sorry to hear you would not stay again. Unfortunately, due to the covid situation at the time, the agency were not allowing any sort of welcome pack to be put in the property. We understand that as covid restrictions are now being lifted, those items are starting to be put back in the properties again. You are right, it is nice to be able to make a warm drink after a long journey, before unloading and unpacking. Property Owner

  • "Everything was great."

    The only criticism was that the windows were very dirty, every window you looked out of made you very aware of how dirty they were. Apart from that we were very happy and would be very happy to return.

  • "Dream-Cottages team located in Weymouth are wonderful ."

    Nuke cottage is so beautiful every comfort is catered for. Much larger inside than you would think. Love its a Friday Start too. We could park behind gates not worry about the car. We have booked up NUKE cottage for next July 2022 as loved it so much. Thank you NUKE owners and Dream Team. Kind regards as always Mr & Mrs Brindley.

  • "Fabulous property in excellent location."

    Nuke was very clean, light & airy with smart decor. Sofas and beds were very comfortable and it was generally well equipped. Wi-Fi worked fine for us. The bathrooms were contemporary and the en-suite shower hot & powerful plus the towels were bright white, large and fluffy. The only thing it lacked was a shelf for shampoo etc in the shower. The main bedroom is especially lovely and looked newly decorated. Private secure parking is a valuable bonus, the spaces are a little tight even for our mini but everyone in the mews managed ok. It would be hard to better the location just a few minutes flat walk to Hope square and the lovely harbour. Just one observation there was no welcome pack so if you want a cuppa on arrival make sure you take supplies with you ! Highly recommended we would certainly choose this property again.

  • "Guests need to know that if on foot there is a side gate tucked away near the washing lines that you can use."

    This has a digilock with the same code as drive gates. Lovely property everything you need.

  • "This was the best cottage we have rented, it was beautifully decorated and furnished and very clean."

    All the appliances were good quality and easy to use. The private parking was a really good bonus. It is so close to everything, I loved walking down to Newton cove, especially with the cruise ships, anchored in the bay. We had 2 weeks of perfect weather, so it was one of our best holidays, and good fish and chips.

  • "We were slightly apprehensive about leaving our little covid free bubble at home and venture on holiday this year but I'm so glad we did."

    The cottage was absolutely spotless, it looked like we were the first people to ever visit. It is in a fantastic location, 2 minutes away from the beautiful Newtons Cove and just around the corner from the harbour but far enough away not to hear any of the hussle and bustle. Just a short walk over the bridge took us to town or to the beach. The decor was lovely, beds were really comfortable and there was everything you could possibly need in the cupboards. The gated access and parking space were great as there were no worries about leaving the car, or moving it and losing your space. An ideal base to explore the local area as well as the rest of Dorset. We loved it so much we've already booked to come back again next year.

  • "This cottage is in a really good location to access pubs, restaurants, old harbour and shops."

    It would also be brilliant for anyone who wants to set off walking along the coast. The town of Weymouth has all you need - shops, cinema, restaurants, pubs, food take-aways and then sandy beach and masses of interesting places to visit close by. The cottage was clean, contemporary and warm, with the bonus of a downstairs cloakroom too. We loved it and are determined to return before too long. The only negative is- the shower has little power and the bathroom has a tiny corner bath, impossible to lie down and enjoy a hot bath, particularly as the hot water runs out with a only a few inches in the bath - not good!

  • "Teething problems with this relatively new let."

    ..WIFI connection depends on next door router and at best signal in Nuke was fair to weak and mostly unusable except from the kitchen area which is closer to the router. I understand from the owner that a booster is to be fitted to the router in Reeva! ..I needed the access for business purposes so used local facilities in cafes etc. the heating system twice required attention from a local representative in the office at Hope square but was working by the time we left.

  • "Nuke is a beautiful house , all of the rooms are decorated to a high standard and the furnishings are good ."

    We spent an enjoyable 2 weeks there . The en suite and seperate bathroom were very useful . However the place was let down by some niggling attention to detail. Firstly the kitchen has a microwave and dishwasher but all of the crockery had labels on saying they were not microwave or dishwasher safe ! Secondly the internet connection is very poor and mostly unusable so having a smart TV in the main bedroom to watch netflix/on demand is pointless . I contacted Dream Cottages to enquire/complain about the internet access , they contacted the owner who said that it was standard broadband. If I was paying for broadband where the speed varied between 0.5 mbps and 9 mbps ( mostly 0.2 mbps to 1.00 mbps ) then I would be asking questions of the provider. I couldn't see a router in the property so maybe the broadband service is a shared connection and is only usable if nobody else in the adjoining properties is using the service. Thirdly as we were resident for 2 weeks we found a note in the kitchen advising that a linen change and property refresh would be carried out on the Saturday of the 2nd week . We were asked to leave the key in the key-box. We did this and upon returning found that the linen change and refresh had not happened . I went round to the Dream Cottages office , it transpired that as the property was a Friday to Friday let that the refresh should have been done on the Friday but as we hadn't left the key it couldn't be done . We were given a choice of having the towels/linen replacements dropped off within the hour if we wanted to change the bedding ourselves or wait until the Monday to have the linen change and full refresh . We opted for the do it yourself option. A small issue was the velux windows in three of the rooms , the blinds were very difficult to close/open and there was no advice in the welcome book on how to use them .These niggles did have an effect on our overall enjoyment of the stay .

The property

Previously providing the stables for the brewery horses in Weymouth, Nuke and it's surrounding properties have now been renovated into pretty mews-style houses, ideal for a holiday getaway with your loved ones.

The traditional tone is set with a wonderful stable front door, from which you enter into the modern open-plan dining and living room area, that is great for relaxing in front of the TV after a busy day exploring Weymouth.

Going through to the kitchen, you will find it fully equipped with everything you need to create some delicious meals using the gas hob and electric oven, and why not soak up as much of the sun as possible by taking things outside and chilling on the front decking.

Upstairs are two delightfully bright bedrooms, the master having an en-suite, and the second being a cosy twin bedroom, with the family bathroom across the way containing a corner bath, fantastic for some pamper time.

Located in the Brewers Quay and harbour area of Weymouth, this mews house is less than five minutes' walk from Weymouth's historic harbourside, where you can enjoy fresh fish and chips as the boats float by.

Newton's Cove beach and the Nothe Gardens are both only a few minutes' walk away, so this is the ideal house for parking up the car in the secure parking, and getting around on foot.

Weymouth’s golden sand beach and shallow waters are around a 15-minute walk, or why not take a short row across the harbour in the row boat ferry.

No trip to the beach is complete without an ice cream and there are plenty of incredible local ice creams to try!

Nuke would suit a couple seeking a romantic seaside retreat or a small family wanting to have fun on the beaches.
