The West Country region

Portland has a beautiful rugged coastline and slower paced than the nearby seaside town of Weymouth. Leisure activities on the isle include fishing, diving, bird watching, rock climbing and a variety of water sports including sailing at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, venue for the sailing events at the 2012 Olympic games.


Situated at the heart of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, Weymouth and Portland are an excellent base for exploring South Dorset's coast and countryside. Nearby Weymouth offers a lively nightlife, high street shops and a sweeping sandy beach.

"Do not book this cottage unless you like damp conditions"

I booked this cottage as a weeks break with my family before embarking on an operation for Cancer. We arrived at the cottage and as soon as we got through the door the damp smell hit us. There was dam… More

I was disappointed to hear that this guest did not enjoy her stay as other guests have been very positive in their feedback.

In response to some of these comments - there is not damp on all the walls - Portland coastal stone cottages can be prone to some damp but this is rectified by maintaining it well and the correct use of heating and ventilation.

There was a small leak under the sink and the plumber was coming to fix this the next day but the guests only stayed for one night - sadly a bag of gardening weeds had blown over - any air fresheners will be moved as it would be unfortunate for anyone to swallow one of these or a humidifier.

Approximately forty photographs were send mostly of under the stairs where the cleaning/maintenance and gardening things are kept and one photo of her parents sitting on the sofa looking happy having a glass of wine. For the future painting and gardening products will be kept in a shed.

Finally I would like to point out that I did contact this guest by email and telephone and that I do not live in the property while it is being rented.

The photographs and description on the holiday website fully reflect a full and true condition of the property and I would wish all guests staying here to have a pleasant and happy holiday.

"Away from it all."

If you want a remote get away from it all holiday, this will meet your requirements. This property is suitable for walkers as it is on the main road to Portland Bill lighthouse. There is a pub on the … More

With reference to the central heating I explained fully on the telephone how to use the heating system which is relatively new and straight forward. The full instructions if needed are in the holiday let manual for the control switch which is on the wall in the lounge. As I did not hear back from the guests again I assumed that they had managed to switch the heating on. I would like to point out that I am always available by telephone or email if guests have any questions regarding the cottage.

Quaint modernised cottage on very quiet road leading to Portland Bill. The cottage has been tastefully modernised. We all agreed the photos do not do justice to the cottage. The kitchen was fully fi… More
