    A fantastic little gem less than a minutes walk from the coasts of Portland bill. Perfect for 2 couples, and the care and pride that goes into the upkeep of this cottage is more than evident. Great communication with the owner / agent, the cottage exceeded our expectations.

    We have never been to Portland and saw the old boat house so we decided to book it for four nights. The cottage is on it’s own,set back from the sea giving it a great view around the coast and of the lighthouse. The cottage covered all our needs although the spiral staircase is tight it the best way to get upstairs. We used both the binoculars and telescope to watch the wildlife and the world go by. The hot tub was great and the information pack was excellent. We went in November and although the amenities were limited the coastal walks gave us loads to do.

    Such a beautiful place, right next to Portland Bill lighthouse. Cottage was beautiful cozy and very well equipped. Hot tub was used everyday after long walks along the beautiful beaches. We will be booking this cottage again soon.🙂

    This is a beautiful, immaculate, quiet cottage which is on its own with great views of the sea. We found having the bathroom downstairs and the low eaves over one side of the bed a bit of a challenge because of our age; otherwise I would have scored all tens for the cottage. We had a lovely holiday and liked the location very much.

    This place has restored our faith in an English summer holiday. It could rain everyday and we would have still loved this place. Our best holiday in 10years and we will most definitely be back!!!! Thank you.

    We had a wonderful week here, the cottage is cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. The view is amazing and we spent a lot of time sat out on the decking and in the hot tub gazing out to sea. It is a very short walk down to the lighthouse, where there is also a lovely restaurant (The Lobster Pot). Even though these things are close by, it is still very quiet and quite secluded which is exactly what we look for in a cottage.

    Fabulous cottage with everything we needed to make this a ‘home from home’. The equipment and furnishings were to a high standard and the hot tub was marvellous. Great views over Portland Bill and lovely surrounding area. A great base to explore Dorset from.
