    “This is the fourth time we have stayed at this property.”

    We have always loved the location and facilities offered at this property.

    We have always loved the location and facilities offered at this property. Sadly the lack of car parking permits for 2 vehicles is a let down as we booked on the understanding there were 2 permits. A number of fixtures and fittings need some TLC to bring it back up to standard. Also had issues with lack of hot water for a few days. Great property, great location with plenty of space.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted that you have returned so many times. Unfortunately, the Council suddenly withdrew carpark season parking which owners had no control over. We have been eligible though to purchase one parking permit which is available to guests. We have an ongoing maintenance plan prior to the start of each season and are sorry if you found something not up to scratch. It is difficult during the season to undertake more than the most essential maintenance in order not to inconvenience guests. Please do let us know of any specifics. Thank you again for taking the time to provide feedback. Property Owner

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

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: Good Housekeeping Bond £200
