A beautiful home, a beautiful holiday cottage.

  • 5 out of 5
Rosa Cottage was just perfect, it looked like a show home from an interior decor magazine but felt like a home to which we all relaxed in. Karin has gone to great lengths to equip the cottage with the essentials plus more. We were so fortunate with the weather so spent our week outside exploring all the interesting sites on Portland and beyond. We could have stayed another week as when we left there were still numerous things to see and do. We would definitely book again in the future. Thanks again.

The cottage had all we wanted, it was well furnished,and ideally situated for our needs. It was warm,welcoming,with an excellent supply of hot water. The information folder was brilliant, it answered any question you could ask,and the owner was as helpful as anyone could wish for, I would certainly return.

Brilliant last minute booking

  • 5 out of 5
We had our original cottage cancelled on the Thursday morning. Managed to book Rosa Cottage for 3 nights that day and arrived Thursday evening.

We are a family with an 8 week old daughter. Great place, 3 bedrooms, lovely big living room and dinning room. Travel cot provided.

5 minutes to the beach, pub and shops. We had oddly great weather in October and ended up walking to the Boat That Rocks for a Coffee and spending time just chilling in th elocal area.

We were limited with places to eat out due to the little one so had fish and chips from the 'Codfather', Indian from Balti Village and cooked fajitas in the little kitchen (everything you'd need)

Blue Fish Cafe is well worth a visit for breakfast (£6, not cheap) but vry good quality food. Quiddles cafe on the beach also good for lunch.

For a pint with a good view, pop into the The Cove, beachside pub - Good ales on tap.

Overall a great stay and great value too - Many thanks Karin

Stunning cottage, relaxing break!

  • 5 out of 5
I had a wonderful (albeit short) break at Rosa Cottage. It was a last minute, spur-of-the-moment decision and I called the owner the day I was hoping to arrive... luckily it was available and she was very welcoming, meeting me at the front door and giving me a guided tour before leaving me to my own devices.

What an absolutely beautiful place - the photos don't do it justice at all! It's warm, colourful, and instantly feels like your own. Get the log burner stoked up (wood provided) in the evening and you don't want to leave. The main double bed (can't speak for the others) is wonderfully comfy and a struggle to get out of in the morning! An added bonus: as a classical guitarist, I wanted to get away somewhere inspirational: the high ceilings and stripped wooden floors give incredible acoustics with just the right amount of reverb - so can't recommend enough to musicians (although being terraced I'd suggest only acoustic instruments) looking for a quiet practice spot!

Not only will I be returning, I'm hoping to make it my own little regular seaside get-away.

Highly recommended, thanks Karin!

Chesil beach

Situated on the Jurassic Coast, Portland is home to England's National Sailing Academy, the venue for the sailing events at the 2012 Olympics.

It boasts some of the best diving waters in Northern Europe, whilst the whole of this tiny island offers a haven for walkers, climbers, geologists and birdwatchers, together with a good choice of shops, pubs and eateries.

Chesil Beach just a few minutes walk away connects the island to the main land, whilst Weymouth, with its golden sandy beaches and colourful harbour is just 4 miles away. A perfect location for a varied holiday.

There are many excellent restaurants on the Isle of Portland and also a wide selection of pubs, many who have live bands and music in the evenings. Shops, pubs and restaurants are only a few minutes walk away.

The property is within walking distance of the National sailing Academy and the Olympic Village.
