“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely stay in this super cottage. In need of a deep clean and light bulbs re-newing. Lovely facilities and kitchen very well equipped.
Hot tub was fun with a lovely garden. We really enjoyed our stay.

“clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is equipped with all that you would need, it is clean and well presented. The fresh flowers, fruit and milk were a welcome addition.
The cottage has gorgeous sea views from the bedrooms and the beds are very comfortable.
The hot tub was great especially when the weather is not brilliant, it is a perfect place to relax after a day of walking or sight seeing.
The walks along the coast from the cottage were particularly lovely, especially the walk form Church Ope up to Durdle Pier. The walk to Portland Bill was lovely especially with the reward of a cream tea at the Lobster Pot.
We had a good meal at the Eight Kings pub in the village and also enjoyed a lunch at the Jailhouse café near the prison. Fantastic views from there too.
All in all a lovely relaxing holiday

“Lovely clean spacious cottage with sea views”

We all loved Fishermans Cottage. It is light, airy and spotlessly clean! The cottage is in a quiet position set in a pretty garden with raised decking to give you a lovely sea view. The position on the island is good enabling an enjoyable walk to Portland Bill either by road or around the coastal path. It is only a few minutes drive from Tesco so you don't have to be too organised with shopping trips! Having three loos is a huge bonus and there is ample parking on the verge opposite the cottage.

Me & my partner stayed at the end of November for a week & loved every minute... Recently having talks of coming back due to loving the house so much. We have loved every minute. Thank you for lending us your beautiful house. We miss waking up to the sea views, the sun setting and sometimes the sun rising. Boats passing... We loved every minute. Thank you so much.

This is a beautiful cottage and has very quiet and peaceful surroundings. Perfect for visiting Portland. The cottage is clean and has all the necessary amenities. We had a wonderful time there. All major places in Portland are very close by. I would definitely recommend to everyone.
