  • “The cottage was just as described in the listing, and was in an excellent location for the harbour and lots of lovely restaurants and pubs.”

    The fully fitted kitchen was fantastic and we enjoyed some leisurely breakfasts sat in the back garden in the morning sunshine, perfect way to start the day.

The property

Firkin is a beautiful, fully renovated cottage only a stroll away from the Brewers Quay and Newton's Cove area of Weymouth.

This property is perfect for a quiet holiday slightly away from the bustle of the main town although still very close to the Old Harbour and Hope Square.

Inside the standard of finish is exceptional and attention to detail obvious.

The pretty enclosed rear cottage garden has a patio area with garden furniture, so you may enjoy the sun or eating alfresco.

Firkin, so named after the traditional 72-pint barrel used at the now converted local Devenish Brewery, is a favourite of our discerning guests due to its contemporary presentation and proven location. Just a short drive away is beautiful Isle of Portland loved by water sports enthusiasts.

Chesil beach visitor centre offers a glimpse to the area’s wildlife and you can walk up the beach and enjoy watching crashing waves to the shore.

On windy days it’s a sight not to miss. Venture further and you find a beautiful village of Abbotsbury where you will find the one and only in the world Abbotsbury Swannery where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans.

This historic village is sheltered by Ridgeway hills that inspired a few books of Dorset’s famous writer Thomas Hardy.

From the town centre there are so many places to visit within a walking distance: St. Catherine’s Chapel, St. Nicholas Church, Chesil Beach, Sub-tropical gardens.

If you are up for an energetic walk, a visit to Abbotsbury Castle, the Iron Age hillfort, is a must of the stunning scenery around.

Stay in this lovely house with friends or have a family gathering and explore beautiful Dorset coast.

About the location


Dorchester 8.7 miles; West Lulworth 15.8 miles

Brewers Quay is the old Victorian brewery situated at the heart of the harbour, in Weymouth, Dorset. Much of the grade II listed complex and surrounding brewery buildings date from the late 1800 early 1900’s and many have stones inlaid commemorating their construction year. This area is now a popular destination with many restaurants, café and bars, creating a vibrant culture, where you can relax with a drink and watch the world go by. Tucked away down the harbourside streets, you will find original Tudor harbour buildings, estimated to have been built in 1600 and well worth a visit, with a very interesting history to share. You will also find the Weymouth Museum, with some incredible exhibitions, and the harbour is also home to the lifting bridge, where you can watch the luxury yachts head out to sea, and then walk over the bridge to the town's winding streets of boutique shops and the seafront esplanade and beach. There is more to this seaside town than meets the eye; Brewers Quay is a much-loved holiday destination in Weymouth!
