  • “Upsidedown House is a well-located dog-friendly property in a gated development with two parking spaces, and with an outside space not mentioned in the property listing - this 'garden' area was ground-floor level, accessed either through a gate by the parking spaces or down an external staircase from the dining area, and had pebbles for most of it but also a small raised terrace with table and chairs.”

    This garden area was very convenient with our little dog, as it gave her an area to explore that was away from the distractions of the parking area. Upsidedown House is a minute or two walk from the Harbour, with lots of cafes/pubs/restaurants between it and the bridge over to the Town Centre. The property itself was well-maintained, and the areas with hard floors were the best kept - some of the carpets were a little tired / needed extra attention, but being dog-friendly we know this is a ...

    This garden area was very convenient with our little dog, as it gave her an area to explore that was away from the distractions of the parking area. Upsidedown House is a minute or two walk from the Harbour, with lots of cafes/pubs/restaurants between it and the bridge over to the Town Centre. The property itself was well-maintained, and the areas with hard floors were the best kept - some of the carpets were a little tired / needed extra attention, but being dog-friendly we know this is a challenge. The open-plan living space was huge, bright, and airy. We had windows open most of the time day and night, and were never disturbed by local noise, although staying in September there may be less going on locally than in the summer. You do hear noise through the walls from the next property, as being conversions of old buildings the soundproofing is maybe not as robust as in newer properties. The wi-fi was excellent. The shower stalls in both bathrooms had excellent pressure, but did feel a little bit cramped - we both banged our elbows in our respective bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and with decent linens, and towels provided were of good quality. Welcome basket of teas, coffees, biscuits, etc. was a nice touch. A few of the kitchen items (glassware and crockery) needed re-washing before use, but there were plenty of glasses, mugs, plate, bowls, cutlery etc. for a larger group - we were just two people and a dog. We made use of the washing machine once, but the airer to hang the clothes to dry seemed broken in some way so we couldn't get it to stand up as it should - we propped it up in the bathtub and latterly in a doorway, and it worked okay but was not ideal. The Dreams Cottages team have their office right outside the gates of the Court where Upsidedown House is, and it is convenient to have them close by for questions/issues - we collected the keys from them directly, as they had contacted us during our journey to advise the property's key safe was malfunctioning, and the key safe was fixed within a couple of days after our arrival. We will definitely return to Upsidedown House in the future, as we had a lovely relaxing break, and barely had to use the car due to the excellent location.

The property

Upsidedown House is hidden away in a quiet area in Weymouth you would not believe that you could be so close to the bustling harbour and ever-changing scenes of the Brewers Quay. The property has a unique charm with its fashionable large open plan loft style living space with impressive feature vaulted ceiling with original beams perfect for large families or groups of friends who enjoy an open airy space. The property has a little balcony that you can access from the living area.

Upsidedown house sleeps six guests in three bedrooms all located on the ground floor as well as bathroom.

There is an en-suite bathroom with king-size double bedroom.

There are TV’s in family and twin single bedrooms for you to relax and slowly drift away to sleep. The location of the property offers magic throughout all the seasons with so many places to see and romantic places to explore. On summer evenings you can enjoy a glass of wine outside the colourful Hope Square nearby, on cold winter days you can huddle inside one of the many pubs with open fires.

Numerous fish restaurants, Italian styled bistros, good pub food and other high-class restaurants will spoil you for a choice. As the property is great for socialising and cooking a meal indoors, you can always get some fresh fish from local fishermen or take a fishing boat trip and make your own delicious meal.

Weymouth is always boasting with many events throughout the year, but you might want to explore more of Dorset countryside with lovely villages with thatched cottages in pretty lanes and stunning coast with amazing rocks, cliffs and wildlife.

All is just a short walk or drive away. Upsidedown House is a unique property in a quiet location, with all comfort you may wish on your seaside holiday.

About the location

BREWERS QUAY HARBOUR

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!

Note: max 6 people. Note: guests need to provide their own cot linen. Note: welcomes one small dog only.
