  • "Great little cottage perfect for what we needed on our 4 night stay, very comfortable and only a few minutes walk into town/harbour , Parking was an issue as the road outside the cottage is very narrow, so the only parking available was in the residential area which was very busy due to the bank holiday weekend."

    The steep staircase took some getting used to and would not be suitable for anyone infirm or those with small children. We had a relaxing stay and it was the perfect base for exploring the surroundings areas.

  • "Second stay at pixie cottage, had a lovely time it’s well situated close to town and the harbour but also very quiet ."

    The house itself is very cosy and relaxing cannot wait to go back

  • "The cottage was not suitable for 4 Adults as the second bedroom had two very small beds which were so narrow you couldn’t turn over in the night without fear if falling out."

    The staircase was very steep and unsuitable for young children and elderly especially at night if you needed the toilet which was downstairs. I would like to recommend a bath/shower mat as the bath was very slippery to stand in when showering. There were two cats outside that came in soon as you opened the door or jumped in through the windows if you had them open. Wasn’t sure if they lived there with the owners part of the year? We had a great week of weather so did enjoy our holiday in wonderful Weymouth.

    Thank you for providing feedback on Pixie Cottage. We are sorry that you found the cottage unsatisfactory. The description does make clear that the bathroom is downstairs and that the stairs are steep. Also, the size of the beds is given in the details: other visitors haven't found this a problem. We know nothing about the cat: it certainly doesn't belong to the owners. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage everything you need."

    However I would not recommend for seniors because of the gradient of the hill getting back up to the cottage. Also a hand rail in the bathroom would be handy when showering.

    please can put it on the details thanks

  • "Very close to harbour, easy walking distance to beach, close to all amenities but still nice and quiet."

    The only issue for us was the yard. This could do with sprucing up and being made into a more welcoming space. Literally only big enough for a dog to do it’s business which I feel could have been made clearer. That said, great location and comfortable accommodation so would go again.

  • "The cottage was not as clean as expected, as the availability was delayed to a covid deep clean."

    There were dirty finger marks around the handle of the bathroom door. The back yard was filthy, and the drain was blocked. There was a dirty ashtray( a shell) on the table in the garden. The windows were do dirty, that someone had written on one with their finger, the word "Help". I have photos if they are helpful. The yard was so tiny, that my dog would not use it as an outside space. The whole point of booking a cottage with garden, is so that I don't have to go out last thing at night, in the dark, for the dog to have a wee. My dog refused to do anything, and if he had, it would not have gone down the blocked drain, anyway. I could stand in the middle of the yard, and comfortably put my hand on each wall around me. There was nothing to say that one of those walls also had next doors' bathroom window which opened out onto the yard, so not private, and when in the yard, all I kept hearing, was people in and out of the bathroom, on the loo etc.The fence you can see through the living room window, belongs to a pub, and every evening, when you are trying to sleep, they are rolling empty metal beer barrels down the street, to the gate. The next door neighbour is renovating their cottage, so there was constant banging coming from them breaking down a wall or something, and at night their small child was screaming, with nightmares or something. There was no double glazing, and the old sash windows were difficult to open, and the cottage was cold in the evening. There was a heater in the living room, which blew warm air, but it was noisy, and I wasn't sure warm air would be safe, as it could circulate virus germs which may hang around. There was nowhere to park outside, so loading and unloading was a big problem. There was supposedly places to park, but any cars parked down that road had many scrapes and dents, caused by other vehicles trying to pass through. I had to park many streets away ( Norwich street), where I just managed to find one space, and had to leave the car there all week, in case I couldn't repark. My previous experiences have been very good, with Dream Cottages, and they have had little welcome packs of tea, coffee, and biscuits, in case you have travelled far. This one didn't even have one teabag, or anything. I was not able to include my granddaughter in my holiday, after all, because of the covid scare, but considering the problems with the cottage, I am relieved she wasn't with me to experience it, on this occasion. I am a fan of Dream Cottages, but I will not return to Pixie Cottage.

    Thankyou for your feedback following your stay at Pixie Cottage. We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed with the cottage. We would have been really keen to assist with many of these issues had we been aware. We do ask that you contact us whilst on holiday if there is anything that needs addressing. The issues with the cleaning have been reported to the Housekeeping team for investigation. Unfortunately, with regard to the windows and courtyard, all it takes in a seaside town is a bit of a wind and the fine sand blows and sticks everywhere. This is something we are continually addressing. We do advertise the property as having a compact courtyard, and we show this clearly in the photos. The property is in a conservation area and the owner has kept the original sash windows which are part of the charm of the lovely Pixie Cottage. The property is in a popular part of Weymouth by the harbour and Brewers Quay, this does mean parking is at a premium and we are pleased you found parking just a few minutes’ walk from the property. We are sending guests a COVID information email which details that we have temporarily removed all welcome refreshment packs from our properties due to Government guidelines, along with other measures. Many guests love the charm of Pixie Cottage with her amazing location where you are just a minute or so walk from the harbour and just a couple of minutes’ walk from Brewer’s Quay, they enjoy her charming and cosy bijou rooms and features in keeping with a property of this period. However, please contact us directly if you’d would like to stay with us again, we are sure to find you the perfect property, which may be a more modern property with parking and a garden. We look forward to you visiting Dorset again. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is small and the kitchen, bathroom and ground floor flooring needs updating but otherwise it was very comfortable."

    The only problem was the outdoor space which although small could have been so much nicer. It was filthy and the furniture was dirty. The drains were clogged and it just wasn't inviting at all. The location is good although very close to a locals pub which was noisy on weekend evenings. There was no welcome pack left of milk / bread etc. which is unusual these days. The internet was great and the living room lighting and sofas were a welcoming comfortable place to sit in the evening.

  • "Overall the property was nice, near the town, beach etc."

    However, sadly there were a few minus points that for the money should not have been. The house is in very close proximity to a local pub, which on a few evenings was loud, with an argument outside one night. There is no parking, even in the roads stated, you cannot get a space at all, we had to drop our baggage and park quite a walk away. The house was over all clean, but we found a pair of shoes that were not ours, under the sofa and that was dirty as were under beds. Lastly, the beds are of a poor quality and were very uncomfortable and hard to sleep on.

  • "Lovely cottage!"

    Very comfortable and homely! The only issue was the heating, radiators need bleeding, we could wash our clothes which was great but nothing dried at all! Was cold at times, fire helped but again no point in having central heating if the radiators don’t work. Still a lovely break, great location, we will return!!

  • "Our stay at Pixie Cottage is all that we could have imagined - and more."

    This is the perfect old-world seaside cottage complimented by every modern day comfort. I'm writing the review whilst still here (the broadband is excellent) - listening to the sound of the seagulls, drinking my coffee, tucked up on the sofa in this warm, charming (and tastefully decorated) romantic idyll. Pixie Cottage is located in the oldest, quaintest part of town. The street is very quiet and parking is plenty in adjacent streets. There are several pubs, cafes, restaurants within minutes on foot and there is also a local shop conveniently located on the quayside, which is easy to pop to - (Weymouth harbour is beautiful). The cottage looks as though it has been recently decorated, is immaculately clean and everything has been thought of for a home-away-from-home stay - extra bedding if needed (it wasn't), fully-equipped kitchen, tasteful soft-furnishings throughout. What we particularly noticed were the small touches - the artwork on the walls of each room (seaside inspired but not kitsch, rather a nod to Weymouth's past and present history), the comfort of the beds (I have slept like a log!) and the lounge area downstairs. We would give Pixie Cottage a 5* review. It has exceeded expectations, no expense has been spared in how the cottage is presented, everything has been thought of for guests to enjoy a stress-free, seaside getaway and above all else it is the charm of the place. We have 'gone back in time', life has slowed and we both agree that come tomorrow morning - we won't want to leave. Hope to see you again Pixie Cottage. You've been a little gem!

    Mouldy bathroom. One large and one small saucepan. Good amount of towels. Excellent location Should be marked as no parking available. Should be marked as restricted access by vehicle.

    We are sorry your holiday at Pixie Cottage did not meet your expectations. Had you brought any or your concerns to the attention of Dream Cottages during your stay we would have endeavoured to attend to them immediately. Our sofa is new, the kitchen is stocked with a good inventory and the housekeeping standard is good, based on previous guests' feedback and our own visits to the cottage. There is unrestricted parking on adjacent streets. Property Owner

  • "Pixie cottage was perfect for our stay in wonderful Weymouth which was just a short walk out the cottage to the left."

    Just a couple of things as feedback the sofas are very uncomfortable and the bath could do with a non slip mat while having a shower.

    We have just bought a new, very comfortable sofa for the cottage. The old sofa has been removed, so we are confident guests should find everything comfy and cozy in future. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was used as a base really and it was ideal for that purpose - the stairs are a bit steep as we had young children, however this is to be expected being a terraced cottage - overall it was a lovely holiday and the cottage was ideal to drive out from to Weymouth and surrounding areas."

  • "Lovely small cottage in great location, easy walking distance to harbour, Beach and town."

    Along with other sights such as Nothe gardens and fort. The cottage with modernly furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay, would definitely recommend and be happy to stay again! Only slight negative points to mention were the steep stairs not a problem for us but might be for younger children and the sofas in lounge were bit uncomfortable.

  • "We use Dream Cottages every year for our stay in July for the seafood festival."

    This year as a valued customer and posts on Face Book was given vouchers for meals for my Birthday and our wedding Anniversary. The cottage is cute as it says Pixie cottage is small but for 2 adults fine. We enjoyed our stay amazing weather as always in July at Wonderful Weymouth. *1 point to note the little court yard out the back has a window which is opened outwards by another property owner joined to Pixie cottage,we did not know this until sitting out 1 evening bit of a surprise but after that think the family respected we were holiday makers & it . If very elderly or a family with young babes in arms were to stay here do note the stairs are very steep to manage and the toilet is down stairs, so means getting up & going down stairs for bathroom trips at night. Aside from those little points as always we had a great stay & will be back again as Dream Cottages staff are excellent in Hope Square.

The property

Lovely terraced cottage nestled in the coastal town of Weymouth just a few minutes’ walk from the Old Harbour. Pixie cottage is welcoming you with comfortable furnishings throughout, open plan living area with kitchen and diner, where you can socialise and have a relaxing afternoon or prepare delicious meals.

The bathroom is on the ground floor.

The cottage still has its original staircase – steeper than most – leading to two cosy bedrooms.

A tiny but charming courtyard (as shown in photos) at the rear of the property provides space for the table and chairs where you can sit to enjoy a drink in the evenings. Even though the cottage is quite small, it contains everything you might need during your stay in Weymouth holidaying.

The popular Brewers Quay and Hope Square is a short walk away with array of restaurants, pubs and cafes will allow you to enjoy a drink in the sun or get a warming drink cosy by a fireplace in winter.

Cross the Hope Square and you will reach the Old Harbour with several yachts and fishing boats returning from a fishing or sightseeing trip.

You may see some crabbers along the harbour, if you fancy, why not to join them and have a fabulous afternoon with your kids. In only a few minutes you will reach bustling town centre with a lot of restaurants, shops and pubs as well.

The main beach is not too far away which has sand perfect for making castles and shallow waters for bathing. Take a stroll along the harbour, Brewers Quay and the town centre, venture further along the promenade to Bowleaze cove popular with water sports enthusiasts. A lovely day out with family would be a visit to world-famous Monkey World, The Tank Museum or Sealife centre. Pixie cottage is a wonderful retreat in the bustling town centre of Weymouth for couples or young families.
