Located directly beside the picturesque old harbour close to Brewers Quay in Weymouth is Buccaneer Cottage. The property has excellent views of the harbour allowing you to relax in the comfort of your armchair and watch the ever changing scene. Fishing boats and luxury yachts pass right in front of you to find their moorings or to pass under the old town bridge which lifts and falls to allow yachts to enter the inner marina. Hope Square, where you will find a variety of restaurants and tea rooms along with the Brewers Quay building a conversion now housing a unique and interesting collection of shops is only a very short stroll away. The main beach with its golden sands and shallow waters is within easy walking distance or you may choose to take the charming row boat ferry and cross the harbour to the beach directly. The town centre with its array of high street shops, nine screen cinema and ten pin bowling is also just a short walk along the harbour and across the town bridge. Within a five minute walk you can reach Newton's Cove, a small sheltered beauty spot with rock pools ideal for children to explore and the adjacent Nothe Fort gardens; the perfect location for a picnic. The main beach is only a ten minute walk away.

The cottage was clean, wecoming and well equipped. We left behind a tea strainer for anyone like us who makes coffee in the teapot in the absence of a cafetière. We stayed here last year and were bowled over all over again by the setting and view. Hoping to be back.

After staying at Buccaneer Cottage, in March for the last two years, it was decided that it would be a good venue for Christmas and awe weren't wrong. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Christmas tree and decorations the owners had provided for our enjoyment and the cleanliness of the cottage. Our stay was made even better as my 8 year old granddaughter had persuaded her Mum and Dad to join her in braving the cold to take part in the Weymouth Lions charity swim across the harbour which they all successfully completed. The location of this cottage, right on the harbourside, couldn't be better and the accommodation is ideal for our families purpose. Many thanks to Dream Cottages and the owners of an outstanding holiday destination - stayed December 2017.

Mr B Benford
Second time at this beautiful cottage and again could not fault it. Fabulous location, views and accommodation. Love the fact that it's dog friendly. So close to all amenities. The staff at Dream Cottages were very friendly and helpful. Hope to return to beautiful Weymouth and Buccaneer Cottage later in the year. Stayed April 2017

Mr A Hazell
Thank you for a superb break in Weymouth. This was the second long weekend break we have taken in Buccaneer Cottage, the first being the same weekend last year and this one was every bit as good, or even better, than the first, in fact we enjoyed this break so much that I have since made a booking to spend Christmas at the Buccaneer Cottage this year. I cannot fault this cottage, location is superb, the accommodation likewise. Our only grievance this year was that the weather was not as good as last year, Again many thanks for providing the makings of a very enjoyable holiday. Stayed March 2017

Mr B Benford
We stayed in Buccaneer Cottage on 18th November 2016 and had a lovely week. The cottage is in a prime location with stunning views over the harbour from most windows, where you can watch the trawlers and fishing boats landing their catch and the yachts and trip boats coming and going. we found the cottage clean and well equipped and welcoming. it was good to find a holiday home that allowed us to take our very well behaved dog. We loved having all the amenities within a short walk. we have been coming to weymouth for many years and look forward to staying here again in April 2017. Many thanks. Stayed November 2016

About the Location

Weymouth sits perfectly on the stunningly beautiful Jurassic coastline. Located on the Southern tip of Dorset, this traditional seaside town is one of the most visited and popular areas on the south coast.

With a beautiful, blue flag, sandy beach, sitting against the back drop of an elegant Georgian esplanade, this seaside wonder is a firm favourite for families. As indeed it once was for King George III, who famously used to holiday here.

For a perfectly nostalgic English seaside holiday, you can ask for no more. A golden, sandy beach, named one of the best in Britain, shallow waters which are perfect for paddling, Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, carousels on the promenade, all accompanied by traditional chippies and quaint tea rooms.

Head down to Weymouth’s Old Harbour, a fine Georgian harbour and one of the prettiest in Europe. Simply soak up the bustling atmosphere of harbour life; sit on the harbour wall with some fish and chips and watch the large catamarans, traditional fishing boats and luxury yachts. Or why not enjoy an adrenaline fuelled ride around the bay with the Weymouth Bay Rib Charters. How about a nice family fishing trip? Many of the fishing boats at the harbour offer fishing trips for absolute beginners and accomplished anglers. Weymouth is fantastic for fishing with plenty of wrecks and reefs to explore.

Try a Jurassic Safari where you can sample Dorset’s secret beauty, off the beaten track. You will be taken along unspoilt country lanes, ancient byways and deep river crossings, whilst catching sight of beautiful wildlife.

Fossil hunting on Chesil beach is a joy with the children. They can run up and down the steep shingle climb, whilst you picnic on the beach.

Sandworld is definitely worth a visit; the sand art won’t fail to impress and there is a fantastic sandpit for the children to play in.

Visit the magnificent Nothe Fort and explore the tunnels and passageways that were once filled with soldiers and canons. See where all the gun powder was stored and walk up to the top level where the canons were fired at the approaching enemy.

If a leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens is more your thing, why not try the award winning Greenhill Gardens, which sit right on the seafront. Bennetts Water Gardens is also a lovely choice, replete with a vast array of water lilies and a Claude Monet style Japanese bridge. A very romantic setting for a picnic!

For a fun packed day out with the kids, head to the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower, an underground sea world with attractions, rides and over 1,000 incredible creatures. Venture up in a viewing capsule on the The Jurassic Skyline for an incredible panoramic view across the Jurassic Coastline and Dorset countryside.

Children will love Fantasy Island. There are lots of rides, many traditional ones ideal for younger children, tea pots and flying elephants to name but a few! Penny arcades, slot machines and a fab coffee bar.

Weymouth is a fantastic town with plenty to do for everyone!
