    “Your write up describes Brewers Quay ‘with its antique emporium, cafe and Italian restaurant’, but you must be aware that Brewers Quay closed down several years ago, so why hasn’t your description been amended?”


    The house itself and the location are very good and we had a very enjoyable holiday, but a couple of things could be improved. The kitchen is very smart and modern, with a generous supply of cutlery and crockery, but the lighting is dismal. LED bulbs are used in the spotlight fittings quite sensibly, but they are extremely low power and higher power LED ones would be a huge improvement without a great increase in current drawn. The microwave is housed inside a cupboard at knee height - why? No operating instructions are provided so it was necessary to get on hands and knees with a torch to work out which buttons to press. No hand towel was provided in the kitchen or downstairs toilet and only one tea towel was provided, which is not enough for a house with seven people, even with a dishwasher. The team in the Dream-Cottages Office were very helpful sorting out various problems - the twin beds had not been zipped into a double, the WiFi didn’t work, the hot water failed on the second day, one loo roll holder was very loose on the wall. Lots of rainwater came into the dining area from under the door, they couldn’t do much about that apart from providing extra towels. Finally, the comments book has not been replaced, though the old one was filled up in August.

The property

This impressive family house stands proudly in prime position beside the Old Harbour in Weymouth which was recently shown on Phil Spencer’s History Of Britain In 100 Homes. The property offers guests a luxurious stay in a contemporary atmosphere with interior designed sea and boat themed decor.

Sumptuous touches include boutique style en-suite shower rooms, several LED screens with satellite TV and WiFi, as well as a cutting-edge kitchen.

The house is very well equipped providing a real 'home from home'.

This holiday home is perfect for a large family or a large group of friends, as it has 4 spacious bedrooms, all with an ensuite or their own bathroom, and two lounge rooms as well as the bonus of a large rear patio.

Everything you could need is right on your doorstep with no need to use a car. There are wonderful panoramic views of Weymouth Harbour, itself a popular tourist attraction, from the bay windows on each of the four floors of the property.

As well as being excellent for spotting visiting yachts from all over the world, the harbour still has fishing boats going about their daily work. There is always something of interest going on at the harbour as watching the town bridge open and close to let the yachts into the inner marina.

It is fascinating for young and old alike.

The property lies within a two-minute walk to Newton's Cove and the sweeping coastline that leads to the very attractive Nothe Gardens and the old Fort.

Brewers Quay with its cafe culture plus the variety of pubs and restaurants is a minute's walk away.

Another two-minute stroll in the other direction and over the bridge brings you to the town which, as well as two 'high street' shopping streets, has a few narrow streets with interesting independently owned shops. The dining choices are wide and range from harbourside fine dining restaurants to fish and chips.

Weymouth has a long, sandy award-winning beach with traditional seaside entertainment such as Punch & Judy, donkey rides and trampolines.

If you prefer wetter active pursuits the surrounding waters are a haven for water sports enthusiasts with sailing, wind surfing and scuba diving being very popular.

Dorset has a number of acclaimed attractions such as Monkey World, Sealife Centre, The Swannery and Tank Museum.

For a real flavour of rural Dorset visit one the picture postcard villages as Sutton Poyntz where you will be able to enjoy a traditional Dorset Cream Tea or locally made ice creams.

With the sunniest days in the UK often recorded in Weymouth, Harbourside House is sure to give you the warmest welcome.

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!
