“Brilliant - we didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

There is nothing that we didn't like about the cottage, it was well equipped and all the rooms were lovely. The sea view from the windows was also a bonus, and it was very easy to get around Portland either by car or a short walk to the water front with a couple of good eateries. The cottage was perfect for what we needed and the owner was very helpful when I had questions prior to our stay.

Portland is a very interesting Island with lots to see, from the fascinating Geology, Tout Quarry sculptures, hidden coves, brilliant coastal walk with the surreal Chesil Beach as the backdrop.

5 of us stayed in cottage including 6month old baby plenty of room for travel cot in main bedroom. Well equipped kitchen etc. small seating area outside real sun trap. Good centre for walks and trips out amazing views from coastal walk. Portland is very hilly good calf muscles necessary. Paella sitting outside the Quiddles cafe Thursday evenings a real must!
