Mariners Cottage is a 17th Century Fishermans Cottage decorated with murals depicting buoys, crab and lobster pots. We are tucked behind the Sea Wall in Chesil Cove on the Isle of Portland and the cottage has exposed beams, Portland Stone fireplaces, wooden floors, all rooms are decorated in a coastal colour theme. Breakfast is served in the Garden Room, home made bread and jams, local honey, yoghurt and fruit compote. Free range eggs, real bacon and sausages made by our local butcher. Christina trained as a chef so is keen to serve quality and locally sourced ingredients. Both our bedrooms are en suite and very quaint, Driftwood on the first floor has an exposed Portland stone fireplace, and a sublimely comfortable king size bed , Pebbles on the second floor has a double bed and stunning sea and coastal views. Picture Framing....If you have something at home you have been meaning to get framed, bring it with you, Christina is a Bespoke Picture Framer and has a framing studio at the cottage, she will happily do this for you during your stay, by prior arrangement.
