  • "Having stayed at dozens of holiday properties I can comfortably say this one is by far the best."

    A very airy and open property with its conservatory and, outside, patio and first floor decking area to relax and take in the views. The interior is also top notch catering for every requirement most of which has been covered by other reviews. The parking is a fantastic bonus having struggled to park when stopping in other properties in Weymouth (and incurring fines for not quite having my large 4x4 quite within the lines). The thing that really sells it for me is its placement, easy to drive to, friendly neighbours to talk to, opposite a type of village green where friendly dog walkers convene and converse happy to include an outside holiday maker. From there you can walk towards Nothe Fort or take a shortcut through to Brewers Quay and the harbour. Heading in the opposite direction you can take the footpath down to Sandsfoot beach, usually quiet and uncrowded, a favourite amongst the locals. A property where, unusually, you can get to know the locals and learn a little about the community and what’s happening.

  • "The house is quite spacious."

    Lovely view from the decking but very open to people walking past on the road outside. The beds were comfortable. However, a 13.5 tog quilt in summer was too hot. The downstairs bedroom is a garage conversion. Lovely views of the flowers in the garden but Wi-Fi didn't work in there. The kitchen is equipped with all you need. Drains in the main bedroom were quite smelly at times. Would be nice to have something in there to put down them to freshen them up. Great that there's parking at the house. A short walk downhill to Brewers Quay. And Newton's cove close by. Had a lovely stay. Would love to return in the future.

    ! Property was amazing, in a beautiful location just a short stroll from town. Everything was spotlessly clean and the house is so roomy! Definitely one we will be returning to!

  • "In general we really enjoyed the stay."

    We had a few issues : The cot was very stained and soiled on the sides, we had to cover the stains with sheets before using it. There is an issue with the drainage from the upstairs shower, sometime the tray fills up and you have to pump the drain with your foot to release the water. There is also a smell from time to time. The cooker and utensils were not very clean and had to be cleaned before use. As I say we still enjoyed our stay, the location is great and I would stay there again. The issues above can be put right, you may not have been aware of them before.

    Location was lovely, few minutes walk to the harbour, parking at the house and nearby very easy. We loved the kitchen dining area, was great to all sit together. Our only negative was sofas could do with replacing, and downstairs shower very small compared to the en-suite shower upstairs. Thankyou, our stay was lovely!

  • "The cottage was well equipped and spacious."

    Don’t think cleaners have a lot of time to do a thorough job, but not too much of a problem. Read a few negative reviews about the cottage before we arrived, but think they were groundless! We would certainly book this cottage again. It offered us everything we needed in a great location. If I had anything to complain about it would have to be the lack of a soap dish in the downstairs shower.

  • "Arrived to find keypad very hard to read to obtain door key."

    On entering finding the property dirty and not very cleaned at all. Went to Dream Cottages Shop to complain and was told we had to buy the cleaning products and that it was our job to make sure it was clean. We requested in advance to have the twin beds downstairs turned into a double, which didn’t happen. We had to do this ourselves. The wardrobe was unusable in the same bedroom, as it was full of laundry bags. The twin bedroom upstairs had rubbish left under it. After using the shower once we found the bath mat/towel was dirty due to the floor not being cleaned. The dishwasher and cooker were both filthy, so the cooker become unusable, and when we did try to use the hoover the bag inside was full and smelt awful, so didn’t really help much either. All the surfaces were left feeling sticky and some places you could write your name in the dust. The bin for the waste outside had someone else’s waste put in it during the week. So as far as the property is concerned it did not make our stay a very good one. Not to sure we will be using this company ever again.

  • "We all loved the house and garden and its location is excellent - so near lovely walks and beaches."

    The main bedroom was lovely - sea view and the large balcony, accessed from the garden or the bedroom, was a bonus! I would, however, recommend a new cooker. On arrival, I placed frozen pizzas in the gas oven, which I managed to ignite, but when I tried to move the food the shelving and pizzas fell to the oven floor! Four rings worked well on the hob, but the large ring and the grill would not ignite - several attempts and I am used to a gas cooker! Had lots of takeaways - all very nice and not far to go!

  • "Our third visit to the Redcliff View Lodge."

    It is in a lovely residential location with views of the sea from the roof terrace. The main bedroom is spacious and bed comfortable. Lovely big shower in the en suite. A pleasant walk into Weymouth along the coast. There is an under counter fridge and then another large fridge freezer which is really helpful. WiFi worked well. The kitchen diner is large, light and airy with a TV and sound system with radio / CD. Only drawbacks are steep steps going up from dining area into garden could be a big problem for people with limited mobility, lounge is a bit snug and downstairs bedroom a bit dark because small windows. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "The house is really nice and well designed for a relatively small one."

    However the cleanliness should be improved. On appearance evrything seems fine but look closer and everything is super dusty or some of the corners have not been touched for way too long. The vent in upstairs bathroom is covered in thick dust; the roll up privacy blinds in the upstairs bathroom is covered in mold specks, the shower head in upstairs bathroom has mold around the dispensing holes... Doesnt feel hygienically clean. Downstairs, the drawers contents could do with deep clean. So could the kettle and some of the ustensils. We had issues with the heating with temperature gradually dropping to 15 degrees inside, despite following the instructions for the heating provided in the welcome pack. Eventually we worked out that the water temperature on the boiler was set far too low (30 degrees) and therefore no matter how long the heating would be on, it didnt really raise the temperature. After we changed that setting, the temperature gradually increased but the first two nights got really chilly. It felt as if someone had purposefully set the water temperature low on the boiler in order to ensure a low bill for heating... But we had a nice stay and enjoyed the location in particular very much. We didnt get to use teh outdoors bits of the house but I think they would be lovely in the summer.

  • "Very comfortable cottage, really well equipped and in an excellent location."

    We had a very enjoyable stay. While the cottage was clean, we agreed with others that it could do with a 'deep' clean now and then - e.g. dirty shower screen at bottom and lots of dust on the pipes (in clear view) in the bathroom. A real negative for us was the lack of recycling facilities - this is completely unacceptable in this day and age. There was no information provided about this and nowhere to leave anything. We saved up our recycling and were told by the staff at the nearby ASDA(!) that recycling was collected from households in the area, but that the nearest place to take recycling was the Sainsburys near Upwey!!

The property

Subtly hidden away close to the locally well know beauty spot in Weymouth called Bincleaves this detached character property is situated.

A sociable kitchen opens onto a bright dining area / conservatory with an attractive roof terrace.

The property benefits from a downstairs bedroom and shower room, so may be ideal for guests who are less able.

A walk across Bincleaves Green along the cliff tops to the Nothe Gardens, then around to the harbour makes for an unforgettable experience.

The first floor balcony of the lodge have views that span across from Weymouth Bay and over Weymouth itself where you can see the famous 'White Horse' and 'Hardy's Monument' in the far distance. The main sandy beach in Weymouth town centre is within a short walking distance, however the less well known but in some ways more attractive beach at Sandsfoot, with its Robinson Crusoe appeal is perhaps the nearest one being roughly an eight minutes' walk away.

A short cut through down the footpath directly opposite the property brings you to within a two-minute walk of Hope Square.

Here you can enjoy a variety of restaurants, tea rooms and pubs.

Heading through the square you will reach the pretty Old Harbour.

A very well presented lodge that offers you a peaceful stay, but within easy distance of all the fun that Weymouth has to offer.
