"A Hidden Treasure"

We stayed at the studio for one week and found it to be a perfect base from which to explore the island. The location of the studio is perfect for the many walks that you can enjoy on Portland, and is just a short path away from the beautiful Church Ope Cove.

The studio itself was very comfortable, cosy and spotlessly clean. It had everything we needed and was a lovely place to relax after our days out. We were also able to take our little dog with us, which was wonderful, and he was very comfortable there too.

The owners are lovely and friendly, and it is nice to know that they are only next door if you need them.

This place really is a hidden treasure and we hope to visit again soon.

"warm, comfortable and well equipped"

you have done a great job with this small place enjoyed th ewifi and dvds. only negatives- found the cooker idfficult as no temperature numbers on the dials! Also shower a bit cold! otherwise very relaxing and cosy

Thank-you for your review - A few October/ November guests have experienced end of season glitches this year we think! Plumber has been in this week to optimise the new boiler serving the shower. Electricians have moved sockets around to make best use of kitchenette. New fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle,TV.... do come again and enjoy the unique location in another season - lovely in Springtime. Sheila and Douglas

"VERY COMFORTABLE FOR SLEEPING BUT ........................."

Probably the most comfortable bed we have slept in with an excellent wet room and in a peaceful and convenient location but the studio has some shortcomings:-
- it isn't as big as the photos would indicate and the views are not to be seen from the studio or its 'garden' which is overshadowed by surrounding trees
- the cooking facilities are very limited (nb no oven) and not very well laid out, in particular the shortage of electrical sockets meant you were constantly having plug in and unplug items
- microscopic TV & small not very comfortable settee
- the parking is very difficult to access and depart from even for our smallish car

Thank-you for a detailed review. The new TV is now 26." The kitchenette has been redesigned and includes an oven as well as the microwave oven. The sea view is described on Church Ope Studio website as 'glimpsed through trees until leaf fall' The room dimensions are given too. The leather sofa is good quality and deep cushioned but it is a two seater so not that roomy. The bed as you say makes up for it! The Studio is designed as a comfy small retreat, with a large wet room to clean up after all those wild walks - It is right on the coast path.

"Cosy and comfortable studio in a great location"

If you're visiting Portland this is a wonderful place to stay. The bed was so comfortable we wanted to bring it home with us! The shower room was really modern and the log burner ensured we were toasty on cold evenings. It's very close to the coastal path and local amenities. Would highly recommend!
