The Ferryman is a very well presented character cottage which offers exciting and uninterrupted views across the harbour. There is always something to observe from the various windows to the cottage with Weymouth still having an active fishing port but with more than its fair share of luxury yachts and cruisers. From the cottage you have a stunning view of the town bridge opening up to admit the yachts into and out of the inner marina. The fashionable Brewers Quay area with its restaurants and coffee houses is only a minute or two's walk from the cottage. After an early morning stroll for your newspaper you can sit on the edge of the quay and fish for your breakfast! Weymouth's award winning beach invites you to swim in the safe shallow waters and sunbathe on the golden sands. Watching the sun set over the bridge from the magnificent lounge picture window makes for a dazzling end to a perfect day when you book a holiday at The Ferryman.

Lovely property directly on the harbourside, comfortable and cosy cottage, superb views. Would unconditionally recommend and have already booked for next year. Special mention to Shane and the team at Dream Cottages for their friendliness and first class service. Stayed July 2017

Mrs L Carter
Another lovely property from Dream Cottages - very clean and cosy. Excellent location on the harbourside. Very handy having the parking permit at the property without having to go to the office to pick it up. It would be nice if the property had Wi-Fi - although sometimes it's nice "just to get away from it all" Stayed April 2017

Mrs A Wilson
We had a great week staying at The Ferryman. The cottage was comfortable and welcoming. The location is outstanding. It was lovely to be able to see what was going on in the harbour even when we were back indoors. Watching the bridge go up and down become a great source of entertainment! Thank you for a fantastic week. Stayed March 2017

About the Location

Weymouth sits perfectly on the stunningly beautiful Jurassic coastline. Located on the Southern tip of Dorset, this traditional seaside town is one of the most visited and popular areas on the south coast.

With a beautiful, blue flag, sandy beach, sitting against the back drop of an elegant Georgian esplanade, this seaside wonder is a firm favourite for families. As indeed it once was for King George III, who famously used to holiday here.

For a perfectly nostalgic English seaside holiday, you can ask for no more. A golden, sandy beach, named one of the best in Britain, shallow waters which are perfect for paddling, Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, carousels on the promenade, all accompanied by traditional chippies and quaint tea rooms.

Head down to Weymouth’s Old Harbour, a fine Georgian harbour and one of the prettiest in Europe. Simply soak up the bustling atmosphere of harbour life; sit on the harbour wall with some fish and chips and watch the large catamarans, traditional fishing boats and luxury yachts. Or why not enjoy an adrenaline fuelled ride around the bay with the Weymouth Bay Rib Charters. How about a nice family fishing trip? Many of the fishing boats at the harbour offer fishing trips for absolute beginners and accomplished anglers. Weymouth is fantastic for fishing with plenty of wrecks and reefs to explore.

Try a Jurassic Safari where you can sample Dorset’s secret beauty, off the beaten track. You will be taken along unspoilt country lanes, ancient byways and deep river crossings, whilst catching sight of beautiful wildlife.

Fossil hunting on Chesil beach is a joy with the children. They can run up and down the steep shingle climb, whilst you picnic on the beach.

Sandworld is definitely worth a visit; the sand art won’t fail to impress and there is a fantastic sandpit for the children to play in.

Visit the magnificent Nothe Fort and explore the tunnels and passageways that were once filled with soldiers and canons. See where all the gun powder was stored and walk up to the top level where the canons were fired at the approaching enemy.

If a leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens is more your thing, why not try the award winning Greenhill Gardens, which sit right on the seafront. Bennetts Water Gardens is also a lovely choice, replete with a vast array of water lilies and a Claude Monet style Japanese bridge. A very romantic setting for a picnic!

For a fun packed day out with the kids, head to the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower, an underground sea world with attractions, rides and over 1,000 incredible creatures. Venture up in a viewing capsule on the The Jurassic Skyline for an incredible panoramic view across the Jurassic Coastline and Dorset countryside.

Children will love Fantasy Island. There are lots of rides, many traditional ones ideal for younger children, tea pots and flying elephants to name but a few! Penny arcades, slot machines and a fab coffee bar.

Weymouth is a fantastic town with plenty to do for everyone!
