House was better than we expected however upon arrival met by neighbours who immediately stated where we could or could not park. In fact they made it impossible for us to park even a small car outside the house. The car had to be parked 1/4 mile away on a street all week.
Please note that the road to the house is narrow and set back off road through Fortuneswell. Road also not tarmaced and quite steep.
On a plus note the house had everything needed and the kitchen was very well equipped.
Beds were great and towels provided of a very good quality.
The bedrooms were large and the bathroom was large enough to swing a cat in with a good shower.
Log burner made the house very cosy and hot water was on tap with the combi boiler.
The furnishings downstairs were fab and tasteful. Large table with chairs in dining area.
I would gladly recommend this home to friends but for elderly people or people reliant on a car it may cause concern.
Overall the house was great just parking issues caused by neighbours.
The pictures of this property don't do it justice - inside looks and feels as luxurious and comfortable as a show home, except with bags more character! Neither of us have ever stayed in such comfortable surroundings and would have been quite happy to move in! Immaculately clean and thoughtfully provisioned.
We travelled with our 9 year son who also loved the house. Portland itself didn't offer a huge amount in terms of entertainment and days out, though this is an insignificant point given that Weymouth etc are just a few minutes away. That said, Portland Bill itself was stunning in a bleak way, and the Lobster Pot cafe there was lovely and had a souvenirs shop attached.
The only reason we didn't mark this 5 star was the lack of outside space, although we were so busy we wouldn't have used it anyway.

Stayed at the end of September 14 with my husband and teenage grandson who was sailing at Weymouth. The cottage suited us perfectly, lots of room, very well presented and equipped, clean and comfortable.
We would go back to the same place. A little difficult to find but well worth it.
