Great Location!

Beautiful holiday home in a great location with all you need within easy reach, close to all amenities, wonderful places to eat by the harbour, stunning beach which the dog loved and great walks by the Noth Forte along the coastal path. Really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back soon. House was clean, modern and beds very comfy. Nice touch with the essentials provided such as milk, tea and biscuits, even had dog bowls for your furry friends. Highly recommended!

Comfortable, Great Location!

We stayed here for 6 days whilst we were racing at WPNSA. Found it easy to get to and from, comfortable and a great location to walk 5 minutes into the centre of Weymouth.

Lovely 2 bedroom cottage

Lovely 2 bedroomed cottage. Within walking distance of pubs, shops, beach, and harbour. Ideal for walking a dog as very close to a park. The property is quite small downstairs but was ideal for us as a couple and would be ok for a small family. Good base for exploring the area.

Cottage had everything you could need and more and was comfortable and clean.

Very well equipped, thoughtfully decorated and spotlessly clean. Situated in very nice area, in walking distance to pretty much everywhere in Weymouth. Garden has a practical design for low maintenance but still attractive with quality garden furniture and cushions. Enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you.

Lovely house and location

Capstan cottage has everything you could need. It's comfortable, very clean and has a lovely little garden to relax in. It is in a great location close to the harbour and beautiful Nothe Gardens. Amy is on hand to help if you need any help. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage.

A lovely property in a brilliant location.

We had a great time staying at Capstan Cottage in Weymouth. We were 2 adults, a 5 year old and a dog and all fitted in comfortably. The property was lovely and clean and came with absolutely everything and a few little extras. The allocated parking spot was great as we were able to stay local without additional parking charges or easily jump in the car for a day trip. The house is in a great location and within a few minutes walk of the park, harbour and plenty of places to eat and drink. The beach and main shops are only about 10 minutes walk. We had a brilliant time. We loved Dorset and loved our accommodation.

We had an amazing week at Weymouth. The house was great and we loved the location and proximity to local shops, restaurants, pubs and of course the beach and harbour.

We had a lovely stay at Capstan Cottage. Added bonus of a fab little garden with outdoor table and chairs which was not pictured. Great location just minutes from the harbour.

Would recommend.

Had a lovely stay with family in Weymouth. House was clean and enough room for a family of four and a dog! Great location for harbour, costal path and town. Easy drive to Chesil beach and other sights.

Lovely stay

We had a great stay, all was as described. The house is really close to local amenities

Thank you for a super stay!

Fantastic location, a stone's throw away from the harbour but in a quiet residential area with lots of history. The house was immaculately clean and well equipped. The bed was super comfy. Great communication from Amy, including local dog friendly restaurants and activities. Nothe Gardens very handy for dog walks and loos. The fort was brilliant - could spend a day there with a picnic. The Nothe Tavern great for an early evening drink overlooking the harbour.
