    “Excellent stay in the ferryman cottage.”

    Small and very comfortable and in a wonderful location. The view of the harbour is fantastic. Harbour area car permit meant we could park by our front door almost every night.

    Small and very comfortable and in a wonderful location. The view of the harbour is fantastic. Harbour area car permit meant we could park by our front door almost every night. Very nice welcome hamper from the Dorset Happy Hamper Company who gave us everything we needed to start our holiday even milk. One improvement which could be made is opscure film put over the glass in the bathroom and there's a piece of skirting board missing in the kitchen behind the main door. Other than that can't fault this place we had a really relaxing stay and will be back next year

    Many thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed your break and the hamper! Apologies for the missing piece of skirting- no one had informed us otherwise it would have been rectified immediately. Look forward to welcoming you again next year. Kind regards. Property Owner

The property

Weymouth's waterfront is home to The Ferryman, a charming cottage that has been recently renovated.

It is the ideal place to sit and witness the everyday happenings of the harbour, from the unloading of the day's catch to the gliding of luxury yachts.

The kitchen/diner, perched above the harbour and accessible only by stairs, offers a picturesque vantage point from which to whip up a delicious dinner and enjoy it with friends and family.

The first-floor sitting room offers a different perspective altogether, and while it's a nice spot to relax with a book or the television, you'll probably find yourself staring out at the harbour rather than inside.

Brewers Quay, with its chic restaurants and cafes, is just paces away, and is the perfect excuse to take a night off from the kitchen.

The golden sands of Weymouth's award-winning beach beckon you to come swim in the calm, shallow waters; afterwards, wander the esplanade while enjoying a scoop of Weymouth's famous ice cream.

When you plan a holiday at The Ferryman, you can watch the sun set over the bridge from the beautiful picture window in the lounge, capping off a fantastic day.

Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Ringstead Bay, Chesil Beach, Portland Bill, and West Bay are just a few of the breath-taking destinations within a half-hour drive of The Ferryman.
