  • "The property was even better than the photos suggest, my teenaged daughter said it was the best holiday house she has ever stayed in."

    The kitchen is really well equipped, the bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms add a touch of luxury. Lots of added extras like crabbing nets and beach equipment were a thoughtful touch. The gas BBQ is easy to use. When the boiling water tap wasn’t working, it was dealt with quickly. The location is perfect for a relaxing break, once the car was unpacked, it was parked in the car park near by and not used until we left. The rowing boat taxi is a great short cut to the beach. Nothe gardens is ideal for walking the dog. The food at the Mexican Tapas restaurant around the corner was delicious and there were loads of other good food options near by. We would definitely stay hear again.

  • "Beautiful house in a great location, we hope to visit again."

    One suggestion for improvement would be to provide recycling facilities at the property so guests can responsibly recycle their waste. We collected our recycling and bought it home with us to avoid glass, cans, paper etc.. going to landfill. Thanks

    Thankyou for your feedback, we are pleased you loved the house and location. At present Dorset Council do not offer separate recycling for trade waste. We are hopeful this will change in the future. Property Owner

  • "Had a brilliant time, fantastic location and beautiful accommodation and would love to stay again."

    Only slight negative was unable to use bbq due to whoever used before hadn't clean it and no tools to clean it ourselves. Also under sofa could do with a quick clean.

  • "We had a lovely holiday, the cottage was in a fabulous location, was very comfortable and just perfect for us all."

    It had all the items we needed to have a great weeks holiday, The only challenge for us was the need to leave by 10am, particularly when the Dreams Cottage driver arrived at 10 too to drop off linen for the next guests and cleaners when all our luggage was stacked next to the front door whilst we awaited the cars to be bought round. This could have been done after we had left the cottage.

  • "Excellent location plenty of room the only issues we had were on arrival the house did smell strongly of dogs ."

    The 2 nd floor shower not working atal and the Master bedroom wardrobes contained a pungent smell - hops or marajua so unable to hang clothes inside. Pet friendly to a point however Difficult to keep a pet off of furniture and not venturing upstairs in a house that is unknown .We would however definitely come again

The property

Sailor’s Abode is a beautifully presented holiday home resting on the doorstep of Weymouth’s majestic old harbour and just a stone’s throw away from the stunning Newton’s Cove and surrounding serene Nothe Gardens.

This superb, characterful cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends looking for a seaside haven with amenities on the doorstep.

Stepping inside the property, be welcomed into the living/dining room where you can settle down and plan your holiday itinerary, before carrying on conversations at the dining table and enjoying a tasty home cooked meal, prepared by the head chef of your party in the well-equipped kitchen.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, you will find a double bedroom, a bunk bedroom housing two sets of bunk beds and a family bathroom with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

Heading up to the second floor, you will discover a further double bedroom complete with an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, basin, and WC.

The courtyard garden is the perfect spot to sit with your morning cup of tea or coffee whilst soaking in the early morning sun and from here the spiral staircase leads you to a fabulous terrace area where sun loungers await you inviting you to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Venturing outside, the attractive harbour leads you over the iconic drawbridge where you can watch the comings and goings of tall ships, yachts and boats passing below, before heading to the beautiful golden beach and enjoying a delicious Dorset ice cream with the sand between your toes and, in the summer months, even taking a refreshing dip in the clear shallow waters.

The charming esplanade is lined with bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat on the go or sit down and enjoy a gourmet evening meal, as the twinkling lights of the promenade light up the bay.

There are plenty of things to keep the children entertained, from donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows, amusement arcades and fairground rides.

Bovington Tank Museum is around 15 miles away and provides a fun-filled day out with history being brought to life with the world’s best collection of tanks and explosive live displays, where you can come face-to-face with over 300 huge military machines, hear about amazing experiences, and take part in interactive games and exhibits.

However, you choose to spend your days whilst holidaying on the spectacular Jurassic Coast, Sailor’s Abode is a wonderful home away from home in which to enjoy a truly memorable getaway with your loved ones.
