    - Debbie, May 2024

    Many thanks for your review. I’m sorry to hear your holiday was disrupted with the electrics tripping and the boiler being fixed. Unfortunately there was a leaking valve on the boiler which needed fixing which has now been done but I’m sorry it coincided with your stay. We have requested for an electrician to investigate the plug socket tripping and for the bathroom lock to be looked at. I’m surprised the neighbour is able to see in the bathroom and we’ve never had this issue before however we will add some privacy film to the glass just in case. Regarding your point around the holiday possibly not happening please rest assured that any bookings that are made will be honoured as per our contract with Dream Cottages. We see that this was your second visit to the house and we hope you were still able to enjoy your visit despite these issues. Best wishes, The owners Property Owner

The property

On the doorstep of Weymouth’s attractive historic harbour sits Sailor’s Abode, a beautiful character filled cottage just moments from the water’s edge and close to local amenities.

Accommodating up to 8 guests, this superbly positioned property is ideal for a family or group of friends looking for a seaside sanctuary, with the choice of two beaches being reached within just a few minutes’ walk, allowing you to leave the car parked up for the duration of your stay and explore this delightful Dorset town on foot.

Stepping inside the property, be welcomed into the living dining room where you can settle down and plan your holiday itinerary, before carrying on conversations at the dining table and enjoying a tasty home cooked meal, prepared by the head chef of your party in the well equipped kitchen.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, you will find a double bedroom, a bunk bed room housing two sets of bunk beds and a family bathroom with bath, overhead shower, basin and WC.

Heading up to the second floor, you will discover a further double bedroom compete with an en-suite shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC.

The courtyard garden is the perfect spot to sit with your morning cup of tea or coffee whilst soaking in the early morning sun and from here the spiral staircase leads you to to a fabulous terrace area where sun loungers await you inviting you to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Head over Weymouth’s iconic drawbridge and into the town centre to discover many shops and boutiques where you can while away the hours seeking that special souvenir to take back home, and the wonderful Georgian esplanade that runs the length of the golden sandy beach is lined with bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat on the go or sit down and enjoy a gourmet evening meal, as the twinkling lights of the promenade light up the bay.

There are many things to see and do to keep the whole family entertained; from donkey rides on the sand, amusement arcades, fairground rides and water sport hire from one on the beach huts.

Weymouth Sea Life Centre is a day well spent where you can discover an amazing underwater world; explore the tunnels and passageways teeming with turtles, stringrays, sharks and otters, visit Penguin Island and meet the only Fairy Penguin colony in Europe, and let the children run of some energy at the Adventure playpark.

Sailor’s Abode is a perfect home away from home from which to explore all the wonders of the Jurassic Coast and have a wonderful and memorable staycation with your loved ones.
