“Amaranta is part of Dream Cottages holiday rentals.”
There were only 2 rolls of toilet paper provided, one for each toilet. There were only two bin bags provided. There isn't any recycling facilities. The property was clean (apart from some sticky stuff left on a vase). The bathroom has been modernly renovated so does not match the picture you advertise. The shower was very powerful but even turned down to the coolest setting, was still quite hot. Not a problem for the majority of our party. The property is situated in a lovely residential ...
There were only 2 rolls of toilet paper provided, one for each toilet. There were only two bin bags provided. There isn't any recycling facilities. The property was clean (apart from some sticky stuff left on a vase). The bathroom has been modernly renovated so does not match the picture you advertise. The shower was very powerful but even turned down to the coolest setting, was still quite hot. Not a problem for the majority of our party. The property is situated in a lovely residential location, close to Hope Square (Brewers Quay) which had one pub and a few places to eat, a lovely area just set back from the hustle and bustle of the harbour. There is a few steps up to, and a path past a few other houses, to get to the property from the allocated parking space, which was quite awkward when we arrived. We'd ordered a supermarket delivery to arrive our first night and we had to walk down 2 sets of steps, and a path, and back, a couple of times to get the shopping to our door. This wasn't a problem for us but I can imagine it would be if you had young children to watch, or you were not fit enough for the climb. I would book Amaranta again, if we were to go back to Weymouth, for the property itself was lovely and in a nice area, just set back from the busy harbour. A 5 - 10minute walk to the harbour, and a 15 - 20 minute walk to weymouth beach.- Carly, August 2021
“Lovely clean house, nearby all facilities, brilliant holiday with kids!”- Helen, July 2021
“Amaranta is a clean and tidy little house in a good position for walking the coastal path or walking into town.”
Perfect for dogs with safe garden and a large green 3 minutes walk away. Comfy beds and reasonable kitchen. The two tier garden is good to have with washing line. However the parasol is filthy and a box of beach stuff needs a good sort out.- Marcia, June 2021
“The house was lovely, clean and very well presented.”
It was magnificently situated, close enough to the harbour and amenities. The description on the website does not do the location justice, especially for our 4 legged friends. As within a 2 minute walk there is an excellent green open space, especially dog friendly and a local walking and playing area for dogs. With the added benefit of a beautiful view across Weymouth Bay for the humans as well. Situated in very close walking distance to Nothe Forte Gardens, which were excellent for all of us with a lovely walk back to our accommodation along the sea wall walk. Only 2 things to note, one being the walk from the parking space to Amaranta, which if you have a large amount of luggage or are slightly unsteady on your feet may be a little arduous. The second being the toilet seats were a bit wobbly and loose, not too sure if they were meant to be to stop them constantly being broken?! Whilst the weather was warm it was not too sunny which was perfect for our 4 legged friends which made days out really great for doggies and humans alike. Excellent accommodation in such a dog friendly area. We have used Dream Cottages twice now and have booked our third visit already for next year. Thankyou- Kathryn, June 2021
“The cottages was in a good location although in was quite a climb from car park with luggage although most areas were very clean the lounge carpet was extremely stained could do with a good clean or would be better with wooden flooring down stairs especially with pets even so we had a great time.”- Anne, May 2021
“Perfect position in a quiet area but so close to all amenities.”
Garden completely dog proof, not like others we have been to.- Yvonne, September 2020
Amaranta was perfect plenty of seating. The beds were very comfortable. Only a 10 minute walk to town centre I didn’t have a problem I have difficulty walking. Perfect accommodation, Perfect Weymouth as always and the added bonus was glorious weather.- Susan, September 2020
“The house is lovely and had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday.”
parking was easy, location fantastic and beds so comfy. We had a lovely relaxing time and didn't want to leave. There were 2 improvements we would suggest. The tray in the bottom of the fridge door needs repairing and more crockery and cutlery are needed so you don't have to put the dish washer on half full.- Jane, August 2020
“Location was brilliant quiet but close enough to harbour and seafront”- Annette, August 2020
“We stayed at Amaranta from 25/07/20 to 08/08/20.”
The house was found to be spotlessly clean and was well equipped with everything we needed and the recently refurbished bathroom and toilet were excellent. We could not fault this property. The location is fantastic with the beach, shops etc within walking distance and perfect for exploring beautiful Weymouth and the surrounding area. We loved this holiday so much that we have already booked again for next year- Peter, July 2020
“This was a lovely house with everything you need.”
The location is ideal, because it is quiet but close to the harbour and coastal walks. The one thing I would change in the house, would be the location of the dining table. There would be plenty of room for one behind the sofa. This would make more room in the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable, with plenty of wardrobe space in the bedrooms. I would recommend this holiday home .- Jane, July 2020
“Furniture both settees are very low, not good for the elderly, as are the toilets in bathroom and downstairs they are very low.”
Steep slope and steps up to cottage again not for the elderly. Apart from those points nice cottage for young family to stay at.- Roger, August 2019
“Amaranta was idealy placed, very close to be able to walk into town and very near Brewers Quay.”
It was a bonus having its own car parking place. The house was very clean and well equipped apart from the fact it could benefit from having more cutlery. The shower curtain definitely needs replacing. We had a minor problem with the downstairs toilet seat, we reported it to Dream Cottages whose headquarters was just down the road, by the time we had returned from our day out it had been replaced, very impressive.- Jennifer, June 2019
“Although we had a nice holiday there were a few points that disappointed at the property particularly taking into account the amount paid as this was not a budget break and a comparison to previous bookings.”
The property is looking a little tired in places and could do with redecoration in the living room and downstairs wc. There are loose floor tiles in the upstairs toilet and everyone should be ashamed of the state of the shower curtain. Surely a replacement can be made. The carpet is wearing a little in places. The garden should look smarter as it did not match up to the photos. The old rug in the lounge has seen better days. The bedrooms were comfortable and light which was a blessing and the kitchen was fairly well equipped. We had a lovely time in Weymouth but will not return to this property.- Joanne, June 2019
“A parking permit for a nearby car park would have been very useful as we had 2 cars and The Maltings was all double yellow lines !”
The key box seemed temperamental so a spare key for my son and his wife would have helped enormously .- Carol, June 2019
“Lovely accommodation and had a very enjoyable stay.”
The house is ideally situated. Close enough for a stroll to Brewer's Quay, the beach and shops etc. 2 mins up the road to a lovely large grassed area overlooking the sea with beautiful views which was great for dog walking.The house was in a very quiet area. We have visited Weymouth many times and this property has been in one of the best locations. We hope to return. Thank you.- Mr Kelly, May 2019
“Great central location 15minutes walk to Weymouth shops, 25 minutes walk to the sea front.”
Easy access to beautiful Dorset County side and coast. We all enjoyed the country walks particularly our two dogs.- Ian, April 2019
“Amaranta was a lovely property.”
Very clean and comfortable. Nice quiet location but close to sea and pubs and harbour. The weather was gorgeous we really had a good week. We would definitely book this property again. Stayed July 2018- Mrs Cope, Sep 2018

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!
