What a lovely place! We have really enjoyed our stay here & certainly hit the good weather. Enjoyed sitting out on the terrace & exploring the area, thanks to buses and our bikes. Even had a dip in the sea. Sunday Roast at [Cove] Inn followed by icecreams at Quiddles with wonderful live band. We hope to be back! Thank you Graham.

Thank you for our wonderful stay [rosette symbol] in your delightful cottage, pretty sea view and a friendly local ‘The New Star’. Would love to come again.

Dear Liz & Graham,

Just wanted to thank you both for a very enjoyable stay at Seaview. We found the cottage charming, comfortable & well equipped. When we woke up to sunshine & that incredible view on Saturday morning it honestly felt like we were abroad! We had a fun night out at the Star & a wonderful scenic walk around the coastline. Will WhatsApp you some favoiriute pics! Do hope you’re both keeping well.

With Love, Dee & Paul

Perfect. No other words needed! Trish at Portland Arms pulls great pints, and 3-Star bouldering just a short walk away (RIP Halleluijah Arete) [it’s rock climbing speak, folks!]

To Graham,

Thank you for kindly letting us use your wonderful cottage.

We have left Portland feeling relaxed, rejuvenated & inspired. Already we’re planning our next visit! And it’ll definitely be involving Sea View. April or May maybe?

We have left you a beer as a small token of appreciation.

Sarah, thank you as well for cleaning up after us, we tried to do what we could to lighten the load (especially the stove!). The other beer is for you.

Best wishes,

Aaron & Tabitha

Graham’s response:ย  What lovely people?! Thank you Aaron & Tabitha!
