    “The cottage was in a great location, But it is very outdated and a few improvements is required.”

    Kitchen very basic could do with a refurbishment Lounge needs updating possible overhaul to make the downstairs more open plan The lean-to needs updating to make it more inciting for an evening not just a storage space The courtyard floor is uneven and could do with updating with paving stones then this could be more functional for visitors.

The property

Located close to Weymouth Harbour and Newton's Cove is this comfortably furnished two bedroom cottage. Once inside Guinea Cottage you will find the kitchen where you will can prepare some wonderful family meals to be enjoyed around the dining table in the living/dining room.

When it is time to relax after a busy day exploring make your way to the sofa and cosy up to watch television on the 40’ smart TV with your loved ones whilst enjoying the charming effect of the electric fireplace. Upstairs you will find a bathroom and two bedrooms, with the double offering a 32’ Smart TV for those lazy mornings relaxing in bed whilst watching your favourite show.

In the second bedroom you will find a single bed with the addition of a child’s pull out second single bed.

At the rear of the property you will find a small lean-to looking into the bricked courtyard garden.

Guinea Cottage is perfectly located a minute’s walk from the beautiful views of Newton's Cove.

Favoured by locals and children alike this little pebbly beach has great rock pools for crabbing.

For those a little more active there are wonderful coastal walks leading round to the old Nothe Fort and harbour.

Brewers Quay area and Hope Square are also just a short walk from the cottage, here you will find a choice of dining experiences, many with outside areas for that alfresco option while basking in the sun.

Passing through Hope Square you will discover the picturesque old harbourside where you can see the flotilla of working fishing boats or luxury yachts.

If the fishermen have a good catch, you may purchase a fresh crab or appetising fish for lunch.

With all the fishing boats going about their work along with luxury yachts, the harbour is a colourful and wonderful scene to enjoy.

Across the long-standing lifting town bridge is Weymouth town centre.

In addition to the good selection of well-known high street brands, you will find a myriad of quaint little lanes with equally quirky shops.

At the edge of town you will discover Weymouth’s award winning blue flag main beach, famous for its long golden sands and gentle shallow waters.

With Weymouth often winning the UK sunshine awards, the benefit of Guinea Cottage's south facing patio garden means that you will hopefully catch a fair amount of sun here.

Guinea Cottage is the perfect location for a small family close to all that Weymouth has to offer.

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: Nearest pay and display parking is at the Nothe Car Park DT4 8UD a few minutes walk
Note: In early 2022 the bunk beds will be being replaced with a Single bed + a pull out child/teens bed. Please call if more info required.
