Great Location and Comfortable Cottage
Review Submitted: 02 May 2011
Date of Stay: April 2011
What a location? Portland beach was a stone throw away. Roy was very helpful and gave us all the information that we need about the cottage.
The cottage was very comfortable and felt very much like an extended home. Cottage was fully furnished and kitchen had all the stuff to feed 6 of us. We used all the 3 bedrooms with broadband facility.
We never wanted to stay at Weymouth which was very busy and crowded. The cottage gave us a choice to stay at a very quiet place near to the beach which was well connected to weymouth. We used bus no:1 to travel between portland and weymouth. The bus stop is within 5 mins from the cottage and the frequency is very good.
We did all the travel in the day and came home in the evening to enjoy the sunset from portland beach(just behind the cottage). The pebble beach was excellent and we enjoyed most of the evenings drinking at the beach with snacks coming from the cottage.
Portland as a whole was very nice and quiet and the people were very friendly. We also did the portland coastal walk which was very relaxing.
The property was well maintained and was very clean. I will not hesitate in recommending this cottage to any of my friends.
Pro's: Very comfortable and relaxing, very well furnished, excellent location, well connected to Weymouth, Roy being very helpful.
Con's: Only one bathroom.
Attractions we covered in the week: Weymouth Beach, Nothe Fort with excellent views, Portland Beach, Portland Coastal walk, Jurassic Coast path using bus X53, Corfe Castle, Swanage Beach using the Steam train ride, Lulworth Castle, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and also visited Guernsey using Condor Ferries.
