  • "Lovely stay at the everyman as always, can't wait till next time."

  • "The Ferryman is a lovely cottage for a couple and older children."

    The stairs and deep bath would make it difficult for young children or anyone with mobility issues. The Courtyard is not very welcoming but not a problem for us as we only really slept there. Views are breathtaking. Beds and bedding very comfy

  • "A great cottage in an excellent location with stunning views over Weymouth Harbour."

    The cottage worked perfectly for our family, 2 adults and two children 6&7. The cottage is close to all amenities and parking is not far away in a safe location. We did find that the cottage was not cleaned all that well, dirty floors and thick dust on top of ledges etc We have looked at re-booking for next year however as the cost for the same week in 2022 is 53% or £625 more that the cost than this year, we will look elsewhere. Someone is profiteering which is very disappointing.

  • "May 2021 Myself and partner stopped here for short week away during may."

    It was a fantastic house which has stunning views of the harbour and near lots of pubs and cafes. You could spend all day just looking out the living window at the lovely view. There are also lovely walks to nothe fort and not far to centre of Weymouth. House was lovely, modern and quirky inside and very clean. Parking was also not far from the house and parmit also covered some of the other carparks in Weymouth. We had a lovely time and really recommend the stay here and also Dream cottages.

  • "This was our second stay in The Ferryman."

    The cottage is perfect & the location couldn't be bettered. The view of the harbour & bridge are amazing. We had pretty good weather but when there was a shower it was great to sit by the window in the lovely sitting room with a drink & wait until the sun came out again.
