Thank you for a wonderful weekend in your gorgeous Cottage. Very well equipped and lovely views of the sea, plus some unexpected sunshine, made our stay perfect – Buddy the Cockapoo loved it to!

Half term holiday with kids.. we enjoyed staying in this beautiful cottage that is like a home away from home.. this place has everything you need and more.. my kids loved staying here and we can’t wait to come back.. it’s so close to all amazing places Portland can offer.. I would highly recommend to stay in the place as not only is a perfect location but also has a great host who welcomed us with some local coffee, tea, milk and jam 🙂

What a wonderful second visit to the cottage! Absolutely love it here, the perfect spot to recharge. The cottage (with the new sun deck) was ideal, the views, nights at the beach to watch the sun set. Can’t wait to come back. xxxx

Portland has not disappointed! Loved the quirky feel to the Isle. Weather superb, using public transport really enhanced seeing this lovely Island. So lucky we were able to make full use of the sun deck.

Had a great stay – good set up and location. There’s more to do on Portland than you think. Even managed to get in the sea on one day although a bit chilly. Thank you.

Lovely cottage with everything needed for a comfortable couple of nights. Great location and local amenities. Very clean and well equipped.
Hope to visit again soon.
Only 1 minor thing is that the kettle needs descaling (or a water filter to fill it i.e. a Britta). Other than that- marvellous  🙂

(Host’s comment: will replace kettle ASAP)

No Reviews for a While – Sea View Cottage is Temporarily Closed

January 6th  – March  3rd 2022

We’ve temporarily closed Sea View Cottage whilst we install a new child and dog secure sun deck and viewing platform at the rear of the cottage. This will measure approximately 5m x 3m, be home to new garden furniture and a new BBQ – and make a Great Stay an Even Better Stay!

Chris & Lisa Gleave, Denton, Northants

January 1st – 3rd, 2022

A wonderful spot for a bit of post Christmas and New Year R + R.  The cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped. The weather was exhilarating – watching the waves crashing at Portland Bill and doging the rain on the 3 Lighthouses Walk. Thank you for a lovely stay. x

a wonderful spot, the cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped, lovely stay
