Sports & Adventure Activities
Great winter week away in Portland
We had a great week in Portland in this Fisherman's cottage. The house itself is really nice. Very comfortable for our family of four and very well equipped too. The situation is fantastic, just behind the sea wall in Chiswell with the sound of the sea ever present and some spectacular waves just beyond the door (so to speak). The Cove House Inn is barely 30 yards away and guarantees a warm welcome and nice food in our experience. We arrived with thoughts of touring bits of Dorset we didn't know but ended up staying on Portland itself as the walks along the cliffs and down to Portland Bill were good enough to stay for and Portland's historic and functioning quarries were interesting enough to keep us there. It's a fascinating place really, with lots going on in a small area. We really enjoyed our stay and Roy was very helpful and made it very easy for us. We love winter holidays and have been to Cornwall, other parts of Dorset and the Suffolk coast in the past. Portland holds its own with the best of them in my view. A really interesting place. Thanks Roy.
Lovely cottage everything you need for a afamily and 2 dogs was delighted that there was a lovely decorated christmas tree as well which was a really nice touch would definately recommend
Cosy near beach
The house was cosy and couldn't have been closer to the beach. Quite basic facilities but fine for us for a few days.
Beautiful cottage, great location
Lovely few days in beautiful Portland- thank you Roy
A Jurassic Gem
A warm welcome from Roy greeted on our slightly late arrival. The cottage is everything you could wish for. Cosy, homely, well equipped and brilliantly located! Although we were only there for a short break we managed to visit Lulworth Cove, Weymouth and do a tour of Portland itself, which is well worth it. Two pubs within walking distance, both were friendly and Chesil Chippy a must! I am sure we will be back sometime soon.
Rather dark - cleaning could have been better.
Little thing could have been improved upon - no toast rack , only 2 hand towels between 4 people. No grill pan. Shelf in fridge broken.
The Isle of Portland is located on the south coast of Dorset and forms part of the World Heritage Coastline, known as the 'Jurassic Coast'. Famous for centuries as the home of Portland stone (used by Christopher Wren on St Paul's Cathedral and numerous other London churches). Portland is now evolving into a centre for leisure activities including fishing, diving, bird watching, rock climbing, walking and a variety of water sports, including sailing at the newly opened National Sailing Academy, venue for the sailing events at the 2012 Olympic Games. Portland is made up of several village communities which together offer a range of amenities, however Weymouth with its picturesque harbour and its award winning sandy beach is only 6 miles away. Excellent bus service from Portland to Weymouth. Other Activities: Bird Watching and rock climbing
