Perfect peaceful getaway, close to Chesil Beach
Amazing location in Portland - 2 minute walk to the coast and local shops/pubs yet in a quiet secluded street. Easy street parking for free right outside of the cottage! Beautifully and tastefully decorated - really enjoyed relaxing by the woodburner after a long walk and few drinks in the great nearby beachfront pub. Bright and airy roomy house with a traditional cottage feel! Loved our stay and we’ll be returning in July for some more invaluable downtime in this pretty location - also only a short drive to Durdledoor which we did the day of our departure. Thank you Karin for being the best hostess and see you in July
Lovely house warm and welcoming
Everything we needed was there easy access to local shops - great to know that help was close at hand if needed. Lovely relaxing break
Lovely house, great location
We had a fantastic long weekend with the dogs here. The house is beautifully decorated and spotless. It's close to the beach, pubs and a supermarket. It's an easy drive to Weymouth as well. I'd definitely recommend!
A very relaxed long weekend here.
Great to hear the sea and be so close to the beach.
Property was welcoming and very cosy.
A perfect getaway!
Many thanks to the owners who visited shortly after we arrived and were very helpful.
Lovely character property
This house is very comfortable. We have stayed here with our dog and have been able to find everything that we need here. Be aware that both the floors and the staircase are wooden - we have been fine, but our little dog slipped on the stairs the first time he tried to climb them.
Although the weather hasn't been what was forecast (a very hot Bank Holiday weekend) the garden has been a little suntrap when the sun has shone and we couldn't have asked for a nicer, homely cottage.
Well done, Karin and husband, you have got right what some other holiday cottage owners haven't.
Delightful cottage on Portland
We enjoyed our w/e very much. The cottage was warm, clean and very tastefully decorated. Lots of hot water, kitchen well equipped, a bit cool to use the courtyard garden but it looked charming. Close to the sea and the owner was very accomodating about our 2 dogs. We walked all the cliff paths with no need to get in the car as we could walk form the house. Woud definitely go back.
