  • "This property wasn't as clean as previous properties, it needs new saucepans and baking trays, we had to wash all items before we could use them."

    The bed was comfortable and clean, but the sofas needed a deep clean and weren't very comfortable.

  • "Really liked the house, and it's location to the harbour/town."

    Loved the bath! And the kitchen was great, with everything we needed. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we both slept very well. The stair gate was a great help with keeping the dog downstairs as he doesn't like to feel left out. The only reason I've not given four stars was I had to park a few streets away (I hadn't realised it was a single track road outside the property), and I wasn't so comfortable on the sofas in the lounge, but that is nothing against the sofas themselves, just my own personal preference. Overall, a very enjoyable stay, thank you.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The cottage was great and it was a nice surprise to find a great selection of beach items for the children and a huge haul of board games. Parking was a slight issue but we knew before arrival that parking wasn’t available. If there were any way of providing guests with a weekly permit that would be really helpful. We would definitely stay again.

    Best I had over the years in the UK. Everything worked. Also only a 5 minutes stroll to the town centre.

    Could not fined the parking permit for the carpark apart from this nice clean cottage with good facilities.I would go back.

  • "This property needs some updates."

    Garden needs tidyying and bushes cutting back. Bathroom door does not lock. Fridge was not clean and some cups/plates still dirty. Stopped here last year without any issues. Last year a parking permit was provided. However this year no permit. Maybe a cost cutting idea. I would not stop in the property again.

  • "Fantastic stay, perfect little holiday home."

    Nice little touches with books and assorted games for a rainy day. Only downsides bush in garden needs cutting back (losing about 2’ garden space) and very difficult to shave in bathroom (mirror set back in wall) could do with a shaving mirror. Apart from those minor issues the property is perfect and set in an ideal location very close to the harbour, shopping centre and beach. Throughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

  • "Cleanliness of cottage and upkeep of the garden leave a bit to be desired."

    Good location for walking to the Quay side but tricky to navigate car parking - not so much an isolated issue for this cottage but for all holiday lets down this particular road. Definitely do your research on Google Maps for exact location before booking.

  • "What a great find!"

    Comfortable and very well equipped cottage. Loved the sunny kitchen diner and the overall space downstairs. Very comfortable beds- so much so that I've made a note of the types of mattress in both rooms! We'd definitely like to stay here again. Thanks for another great stay in Weymouth, Dream Cottages.

  • "Excellent cottage with great facilities."

    Fully equipped. Brilliant location for town, beaches, harbour. Only problem was parking. There should have been a parking permit. Off loading and loading on arrival and departure was made much more difficult because road was so narrow that it was impossible to park even for a short time to load and off load. The information pack stated a parking permit but it was not there. It cost a further £25 to park which added to the cost of staying at the property..There is also a very bright street lamp right outside the bedroom window.

    Alot bigger than expected. Everything you need in there really. Photos need to be reshot as they don't do it justice. Can't think of any issues.

  • "Lovely holiday enjoyed by all."

    Excellent location to the town and Harbour. A smart television would be a good idea as the free view channels are so limited. A different type of blind would be an idea for the main bedroom due to the closeness of the houses opposite and the blind has to be down most of the time for privacy which means the room is dark, perhaps a net would be better. The cleanliness was excellent. Parking could be an issue but we managed to park just round the corner which was great with my elderly mam. Dream Cottages were great when we reported an issue with the boiler, action was taken immediately even though it was a Sunday.

    Great little pub over the road. Would of like small bottle of milk to start things off.

  • "The cottage was beautiful."

    We had a couple of issues on arrival, but when we reported them to the office they dealt with them straight away - friendly and great service. Would definitely use Dream Cottages again, whether at this property (which we loved) or another with better parking, and we'd recommend to friends looking for a comfortable, home-from-home break in Weymouth. P.S. We felt very safe with the covid procedures and distancing in place everywhere we visited.

The property

This recently renovated terraced cottage is located in the town of Weymouth in Dorset and is close to the harbour and the beaches of Weymouth and Castle Cove.

South Harbour Cottage is a wonderful property for a couple or small family wanting to enjoy a relaxing seaside holiday.

Enter the property to find a contemporary kitchen/diner, well-equipped for preparing delicious meals that can be enjoyed around the dining table, with double doors opening up onto the rear garden, as well as underfloor heating to keep the space warm and cosy.

The sitting room has stunning wooden floorboards, a warming woodburning stove and choice of leather sofas to relax onto while enjoying watching the Freeview TV.

Upstairs are two bright and spacious bedrooms, a king-size double and a twin, both with ample storage space and wardrobes, served by the stylish, tiled family bathroom, with a choice of bath or shower.

Outside is an enclosed garden with decking area and a shed for storage.

The enviable location of the property means you are a short walk from Hope Square and a host of restaurants, cafés and pubs, while just beyond is the pretty working harbour and glorious sandy beach.

Stroll around Nothe Gardens and visit Nothe Fort, a Victorian coastal fort and museum with labyrinthine tunnels.

Jump on a boat from the harbour to explore the coastline, visit Weymouth Museum and the SEA LIFE Centre for a family-friendly day out, while the Isle of Portland is just a 15-minute drive away with spectacular views and the famous Portland Bill Lighthouse.

Explore RSPB Lodmoor nature reserve and look out for a variety of wildlife as you head along the coast east towards Bowleaze Cove, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, while a trip west brings you to Abbotsbury and West Bay.

South Harbour Cottage is a wonderful family-friendly property from which to base your next Dorset seaside holiday.
