This cottage is a brilliant find. Spacious and well laid out, amazingly well equipped - it contains everything any one could possibly on holiday. Downstairs is well furnished and comfortable - the 8 seat dining table is great for larger group meals. The kitchen is spacious with all mod cons. Upstairs 4 great bedrooms and 2 fab bathrooms - clean and spacious. Parking was never a problem outside and very little noise from the road can be heard from inside. The little garden was a hit with the youngest members of our group. The WIFI and DVD player kept the older kids busy when we were in the cottage. Portland is a great base for exploring the Jurassic coast and this group of 8 had a great time especially as we had this lovely cottage to come home to in the evening. We will be booking again

This is a very spacious house with everything you could need to make your stay a comfortable one. It has been thoughtfully furnished with attention to detail. The location is excellent for the Sailing Academy and right by the beaches!

I travelled to Weymouth with my family for sailing events at WPSNA....perfect, literally only 2 mins drive and 5 mins walk. Super clean, FANTASTIC kitchen, really spacious and well considered for guests...comfort that you would expect at a top hotel. 2 good bathrooms and plenty of bedrooms for large groups. I will be planning to book this place each and every time for my future Weymouth trips. Oh.....if you cannot be bothered to cook, the chip shop is across the road, with a Chinese and Indian within 2 mins walk. Have not tried the pub 1 minute away, but hear it is a good one.

Excellent accommodation. My son sails and so we regularly travel to Portland. Unlike a lot of properties in Portland there is road side parking and the house is within walking distance of the sailing academy. The house is spacious and was warm and clean with a homely feel. There is plenty of room to dry sailing kit in an annex to the kitchen which is a bonus. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathrooms are new. Wi fi is available. There is a small garden with facilities to sit outside on a sunny day. Overall a good experience and will definitely rebook next time we are in Portland.

“Beautifully presented property... a gem of a find”

We weren't expecting much as it was a very late booking but turned up to find a gem... The house was spotless, tastefully decorated and very comfortable - felt like home from home.

Blue tooth speakers, wireless, all mod cons in the obviously new kitchen and the bathrooms were fab too.

Location, pretty good - just a stroll to chesil beach and a short drive out to Weymouth.

Really couldn't fault this accommodation, it was extremely good value and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.
