Description

Situated on the rugged and beautiful isle of Portland, Bowman's is a character, terraced Dorset holiday cottage located on the wide avenue which is Wakeham. Internally, the owners have sympathetically updated the decor in a contemporary style, whilst maintaining the original and eye-catching features of the cottage, including exposed Portland stone walls and fireplaces (not in use). The sea around Weymouth and Portland hosted the 2012 Olympic sailing events - they attract many visitors and are perfect for water sports, including sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing. Other visitors love the bird watching, fishing, walking and climbing that is on the doorstep in Portland; walks can encompass the iconic 'Portland Bill' lighthouse and quarries.

Just a few minutes walk from the cottage, there is a beautiful area called 'Church Ope Cove'. Here you will find the pretty Portland museum and a walkway which leads to the secluded Cove. The walk way passes under

Just a few minutes walk from the cottage, there is a beautiful area called 'Church Ope Cove'. Here you will find the pretty Portland museum and a walkway which leads to the secluded Cove. The walk way passes under an impressive stone arch and a little further along is Rufus Castle (a ruin) with panoramic views along the Jurassic Coast. A few minutes down steep steps (150) takes you to Church Ope Cove. The Mermaid (former) Inn, just seconds from the cottage serves great cream teas and fresh crab sandwiches (dependent on weather). Neighbouring Easton has good amenities, including two supermarkets, cafes, independent local shops and The New Inn pub which has received excellent customer feedback and reviews. A relatively short drive or bus journey away is the main resort of Weymouth, which has a long, beautiful, sandy beach, traditional entertainments and good shopping.

Accommodation: Entrance hall with quarry tiled flooring. Lounge with exposed stone chimney breast (not in use), dining room and separate kitchen. Steep and narrow, cottage style, stairs to first floor: bedroom 1, double bed. Bedroom 2, twin single beds. Bathroom, slightly smaller than average bath with shower over, hand basin and toilet. Please note there is restricted headroom (6'4'' minimum). Garden with crazy paved patio area and summer house.

Services in addition: WiFi, phone for incoming calls, gas central heating, washing machine, fridge with small freezer, CD music system, flat screen TV with built in DVD. On road parking outside the cottage. Bed linen and towels inclusive.

Bowman's welcomes short breaks during most of the year.

Location description from manager

The England region

Dorset is a county with lots to offer, from astounding natural landmarks such as the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the beautiful Golden Cap and the popular natural cove at Lulworth to the lively seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Lyme Regis. A week (or longer) self catering holiday in Dorset gives you the time to really soak up the history, feel and beauty of the region, taste the fine local cuisine and enjoy a break from the hectic pace of town or city life.

Isle of Portland

Portland is a tied island just south of Weymouth and one of the largest man-made harbours in the world. It is home to the National Sailing Academy and will host the sailing events for the 2012 Olympic games.
