  • "Lovely house in a perfect position."

    It was spotlessly clean, the beds were extremely comfortable & it was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Thank you for the kind gesture of the welcome pack on our arrival. We will definitely be returning.

  • "This is our second stay in this gorgeous house, home from home."

    We loved the white make over - felt even bigger, much cleaner looking and very spacious. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather which of course makes all the difference but being in our 60’s we like to stay home at night and watch TV and feeling home from home is what we love. Love the decking too. Garden perfect for my toy poodles, they loved the different heights, steps and enjoyed sleeping in the shade under the table. We would love to come back if you’ll have us! “Thank you” for thinking of everything - perfect for us! Jayne and Laurie Ritchie x

  • "The Pines was an excellent accommodation."

    Modern, clean , spacious and very well equipped. Plenty of storage space. The Maltings was a really peaceful area that felt very safe even after dark. It was very close to the harbour, the beaches and the fort. Only slight criticism was the towel rail in bathroom didn’t work which meant towels couldn’t be dried and the sink plug in bathroom was perished and wouldn’t work without getting stuck in the hole. Otherwise a brilliant place to stay.We loved it and would definitely stay there again

  • "Property was not clean on arrival - late at night."

    We attempted to clean the next day but the Henry the hoover was rubbish- resorted to dust pan & brush. Could not find cot immediately - had a tired young child who we were frantically trying to get to bed. Washing machine is broken - makes loud banging noises during spin cycle, so much so we thought something had been thrown at the exterior of the house!!! Should be highlighted that there is only a shower, not a bath in property- not really suitable for very young children.

    As owners, we are very sorry to learn that the property was not clean on arrival. We have checked with Dream Cottages and they say that the property had been cleaned and a checker had been in to verify this prior to your arrival. They assure us that had you reported any cleaning issues to them they would have sent someone back to attend to anything you were not happy with, their office is only a very short walk away although we do appreciate you arrived late at night. I do not understand why the Henry Hoover was not any good, I personally changed the bag and filter on it and used it myself only very recently and it was working perfectly, I will check it again though obviously. There is a power boost switch on the Hoover and wonder if you hadn't noticed this. With regards to the washing machine, if the load is uneven then this does make the machine rock and creates a disconcerting noise during a spin, this unfortunately is normal but again I will check there is nothing more serious going on. I have queried why the cot was not put out for your arrival, Dream says that they do not get cots out and assemble them due to health and safety reasons. It is stored in plain sight in the cupboard in the twin bedroom so we hope other guests will not find it difficult to locate on arrival. We have checked the property description and nowhere does it mention there being a bath in the property, it clearly states shower room with shower only again we are sorry if you were expecting there to be a bath there for your use. Once again we are sorry that you had any cause for complaint/concern with your stay at The Pines. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely great stay at The Pines."

    The property was very clean and tidy so great thanks to the cleaning team. The property owners have obviously worked hard on many updates to the property and listened to feedback. There is now a new sink in the bathroom, more practical, new fencing to the garden which makes it more secure for dogs, lovely patio area for sitting out with lovely bench, even car parking space has had the bushes cut back to make getting into parking space easier. The whole house looks as though it’s been freshly painted such a joy to be able to stay in this property. The bonus of course is that it’s in such a central location and walking distance to all amenities. This is the second time of staying here and we will be booking again, can’t recommend the property high enough.

  • "We enjoyed a comfortable stay in the cottage, location was great and it was well equipped."

    Outside space was lovely to have, particularly as we were lucky with the weather. Also very handy to have parking. Having a smart TV in the living room was useful. As others have commented, the mattresses need replacing, very lumpy and past their sell by date. We did not have a dog and whilst we appreciate it is a dog friendly property and knew this before we booked, there was a lot of dog hair on the carpet which was not ideal for us as we had a toddler running around. Probably needs a more heavy duty vacuum cleaner, the vacuum cleaner in the property was quite old and suction not great.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, so pleased you had a lovely holiday. The property has now undergone comprehensive refurbishment for Summer 2022 which includes all beds having been replaced with new ones. With regard to the dog hairs you mentioned, there is only one rug in the lounge, this is now a new one as part of the refurbishment, which we hope will be easier for the cleaner to vacuum. We hope that people will not allow their dogs to go upstairs. The vacuum cleaner has a boost button on it, which can be pressed to boost the suction power. Property Owner

Great location as only 5 mins walk to the harbour and pubs. Also there is a lovely park a few minutes away where you can walk to an old fort. This pathway skirts around to the harbour.

The property

The Pines is a modern two-bedroom end of terrace property, situated in the highly sought-after residential area called "The Maltings", which was built on part of the former Devenish Brewery site.

The location is an ideal holiday base to explore Weymouth's harbour and beach.

The property lies within a three-minute walk of Newton's Cove with its fascinating rock pools that children love to explore at low tide.

From here, you can walk all the way around Nothe Gardens and Old Fort, then back along the harbour and into town.

The fashionable Hope Square and harbour area with its varied choice of eating venues is a four-minute walk from the house and leads you onwards on your way to the hub of Weymouth town centre and the Georgian promenade.

The main sandy beach with its shallow waters invites young children to splash around and make sandcastles while the sea gently laps on the soft golden shore. Weymouth offers entertainment for all ages; the Pavilion features shows during the summer season and the beach with its various attractions will keep your children amused from dawn to dusk. This well-presented property has the advantage of a large patio and stepped garden area (toddlers will require supervision) and is perfect for families, couples or those with pets due to the rear garden being fully enclosed.

Ascend six steps to the delightful deck and spend some time just sitting and relaxing or reading a book in this suntrap spot. The ground floor living space is very comfortable, you can relax on the sofa after a long day's exploring, and open the patio doors to the garden whilst listening to the birds singing outside.

Rustle up a delicious meal in the adjoining kitchen, which could be eaten alfresco on the patio table and chairs. Upstairs, the master bedroom with king size bed looks out over the peaceful rear garden, and boasts a TV in this calm, light space. It's a lovely holiday home for families with children and/or pets to enjoy.
