Isambard Cottage has been refurbished for 2016 season

An ideally situated terraced cottage located 400m from Weymouth Seafront. A 5 minute walk takes you to the beach and town with its shops, restaurants, coach and rail links and leisure facilities all nearby.

The whole family can enjoy all that this beautiful Georgian seaside town has to offer and also the many places of interest nearby such as Durdle Door and Lyme Regis.

Isambard Cottage was built in the mid 1800s to house the growing population of railway workers for Isambard Kingdom Brunels Great Western Railway, part of Weymouths rich historical past.

The accommodation comprises of a spacious lounge diner with BT Sports channels, kitchen leading to an enclosed sunny patio garden with a built in BBQ. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds and the large family bathroom.

The house was ideally located, just a short walk to the main front. The house was well equipped and had internet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We all had a great holiday and would definantly stay there again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The street is quite narrow, but I didn't have any problem parking. Great location so when parked didn't have to move the vehicle. Lovely house, plenty of room for 3 adults and dog.

Only negative would be the mattresses. Need to have thick toppers on as springs can be felt... We were there for a long weekend. Would stay again.

excellent - everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely week at Isambard cottage with my daughter and her 3 sons. Weather was good so we spent most of our time on the beach which was very near. Shops and eateries also close by. Cottage was very clean and suited our needs- great to have parking permits and we parked right outside. Fairly quiet apart from the seagulls! Have been coming to Weymouth for years - love it. So glad we found this place to stay.

Excellent location for town and beach.

  • 4 of 5

Isambard Cottage is a cosy house close to the centre of town. It had most things we needed although we didn't do much cooking; there are so many places to eat nearby. The court yard was a little less well kept than the rest of the house so we only used it for the washing line. Occasional noises in the street late at night, and the seagulls, were a bit of a pain but we put up with it as this is to be expected in a seaside town. Really enjoyed our holiday and all the activities on offer close by.
