Situated on a one-way street, the house enjoys panoramic views over Chesil Cove to Clay Ope and Chesil Beach.

Portland Harbour is home to a 16th-century coastal fort, or you could visit the famous Portland Bill Lighthouse. You can explore the pirates’ graveyard, Church Ope Cove – a former smugglers’ hideout or visit the Castletown D-Day Centre. Portland has several quarries to discover and a host of wildlife to observe - Peregrine Falcons can be spotted round Portland and along the cliffs, or try and spot dolphins in the waters surrounding the island. Portland Harbour is also famous for its sailing and water sports being home to the National Sailing Academy and was the site of the sailing events for the 2012 Olympic Games. Heading north onto the mainland you can visit the popular seaside town of Weymouth (5 miles), Lulworth Cove (20 miles) and Abbotsbury (12 miles). You can also take a drive along the Jurassic Coast road to West Bay (20 miles)

Seven steps lead up to the hall where there’s space for boots and coats, and which leads into the light and comfortable lounge/diner. This is a relaxing space, with plenty of seating, a wood burner and a bay window with wonderful sea views. There’s also a delightful dining area, perfect for enjoying a family meal. The galley-style kitchen with French doors to the courtyard is equipped with a double oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dryer and microwave. Moving up to the first floor you will find a second lounge with a Victorian-style feature fireplace, TV/DVD, iPod dock, oak floor and a bay window offering sea views. The property also has a twin room which can be made up into a double room on request. The first floor features a shower room with WC, and a bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC. Going up to the second floor you will find two further bedrooms: a twin and a double with sea views.

Heading outside, you can relax in the small courtyard garden which is enclosed by stone walls and features pots, baskets and outdoor furniture. Off-road parking is available for one car, with additional parking in the street.

The house was clean and had a well stocked kitchen and facilities. Comfortable bedrooms. Nice to have views over towards Chesil Beach.

Good property - stunning views. A good base if you are exploring either Portland or the west coast mainland. The property is large, 2 lounges, decent kitchen, and 2 bathrooms - which is a luxury. Steep path to get up to the property from sea level! Comfortable beds and good facilities.

This house was located in a perfect position with stunning views from the top bedroom and upstairs lounge. Portland Island was fascinating to explore and Weymouth is in easy reach by car. I would recommend going to the Jailhouse caf as the views up there are incredible on a clear day. The cottage itself was great size with a lovely courtyard that iRead mores a perfect sun trap. Everything that we needed was thought of including high chair and travel cot plus child locks on cupboards in kitchen. Hide
