The house was clean and had a well stocked kitchen and facilities. Comfortable bedrooms. Nice to have views over towards Chesil Beach.

Good property - stunning views. A good base if you are exploring either Portland or the west coast mainland. The property is large, 2 lounges, decent kitchen, and 2 bathrooms - which is a luxury. Steep path to get up to the property from sea level! Comfortable beds and good facilities.

Our recent short break in Portland was very pleasant, we really enjoyed the Sea Views and Sunsets from the Lounge and Bedroom of the 3 Storey House and we all found it to be very spacious, functional and very tastefully furnished and decorated.

This house was located in a perfect position with stunning views from the top bedroom and upstairs lounge. Portland Island was fascinating to explore and Weymouth is in easy reach by car. I would recommend going to the Jailhouse caf as the views up there are incredible on a clear day. The cottage itself was great size with a lovely courtyard that iRead mores a perfect sun trap.

Great house, lovely views and fully equipped! Had a wonderful time and its a few minutes walk to the bus route to Portland Bill and Weymouth . The Eight Kings, The Boat that Rock and The Cove are worth a visit, not to mention lots of walking if you want.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
