“Climbing, Climbing and more climbing”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Pebble Reef Cottage is a fantastic rental for people who enjoy an adventure. Its not far away from the cuttings for climbers and boulders alike and only a short drive from plenty of walks and scenic views including the lighthouse. The cottage itself comfortably sleeps 6 which we took, it has the facilities to bbq in the sun or cook a family meal if the Great British weather decides not to be kind. I have had the fortune to stay here a couple of times now and I would go back again and again.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Upon drawing up to Pebble Reef, theres ample parking outside on the main road, we were apprehensive as to how small the accommodation would be.


Well this place is surely a tardis! It it very large despite its exterior dimensions. All bedrooms were of an amazing size and my travel cot had no problems fitting into the upstairs double ensuite bedroom, this having the smallest space around the bed so other guests choosing one of the other 2 rooms would certainly have no problems having a baby in with them.


All rooms are light, airy and well decorated. The pint of milk in the fridge was a welcome sight following our long journey here, thank you!


The main living area has doors cutting it off from the bedrooms and stairs so sounds don't travel. The stairs are a little steep but my 1 & 3yr old had no problems mastering them. There are split levels around the house so those with restricted mobility may find it difficult.


The garden is an added bonus. Safe & secure. We were pleased it had some buckets and spade as we'd forgotten ours. For us having a high chair here too was fabulous. We'd bought our own fold up one and it stayed in the car.


The house is well stocked and is really a home from home. 


The tiling to the bottom of the shower in the on suite is in need of repair. This is a minor thing though.


There is no phone signal in the house. We were all on different networks and none of us had anything. it was frustrating at times, but blissful!


Theres a fair bit of road noise at night so both front bedrooms were a little noisy at times. Due to the street light its also quite light in the rooms.


The showers are amazing, high pressure and ample hot water. I was pleased that the towels provided were large and not just hand towels as you get elsewhere.


Both upstairs room have creaky floors and beds so bear this in mind if you have little ones who are light sleepers.  My 2 woke a number of times just from me stepping into the room.


The house is so cosy and warm without having the heating on.


I can see why people stay time and again. I hope to return at some point in the future with my husband and children.


Pebble Reef is well located and just a short walk to local shops and the larger Tesco which you can cut through a walkway to get to. (10min walk)


Highly recommend staying here as a base.

“Pebble Reef is a real home from home”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for 2 weeks with my husband, daughter, son in law and grandsons. It is a lovely old cottage, extended at the back to give a spacious kitchen diner and a second bathroom. As I am disabled, the downstairs bedroom was perfect for me. The cottage was spotlessly clean and so well equipped with every gadget you are likely to need (except a broom) which made it a real home from home. The owner left a vase of fresh flowers and a bowl of fruit to welcome us, which I thought was a really nice touch. The flowers lasted for the 2 weeks we were there! We did have a problem with the TV. When you turn the volume up, the picture flashes on and off, however, we did not come to Portland to stay in and watch TV! The back garden has a decking area with table and chairs to enjoy a BBQ, which we did several times. It is surrounded by trees, giving privacy. The Isle of Portland is an ideal base to discover this amazing Jurassic Coast with the famous Chesil Beach practically on the doorstep! Portland Bill, the famous landmark and lighthouse is just over a mile up the road. There is so much to see and do here on Portland and the beautiful county of Dorset, we simply ran out of time. 2 weeks is not long enough. We will have to return for another holiday next year.
