Fantastic Easter Week on Portland Island

  • 4 of 5

The property details are accurate. This place has a nice living space, kitchen and dining areas downstairs; large bedroom, bathroom, and shower room on second floor; and two large bedrooms on the top floor. All the linens were provided. Perfect for our family of 6 with two kids sharing a large bed, two in singles, and our own room on the second floor.

Although the cottage is an old structure, the inside is contemporary and well-maintained. We didn't have any problems at all. It is a good set up for self catering where you are interested in using the amenities.

The owner was very helpful and responsive. Nothing was hidden when we discussed the terms.

I would highly recommend this location to anyone interested in spending time on the South coast (UK) near an attractive resort like community (Weymouth) with many opportunities for hiking, biking, sailing, and kite flying.

The coast trail extends all the way around Portland Island and was easy enough for our 8 year old to walk the entire distance (we cut the trail in half by walking across the island in the middle - 6 miles walk for us). There are two restaurants within very short walking distance and on the beach. These places have marvelous food and friendly staff. A well run Co-Operative grocery store is a short uphill walk and provided most of everything we needed.

Probably the only reason we are rating it Good instead of Excellent was because our bed mattress (on the second floor) was a little lumpy and soft (hard on my back) but all the other beds were perfect.

A perfect night in Weymouth!

  • 5 of 5

My five friends and I arrived in Weymouth on our first night in England. After our long flight and full day of sightseeing, it was nice to finally feel "at home."

Our stone cottage was perfect and Maddy couldn't have been more hospitable. A bottle of wine awaited us, and even though we don't drink, I thought it was a very welcoming gesture. Clear directions were provided on how to operate various appliances (which was handy for us newcomers.) We made dinner, chatted, and slept comfortably.

The house is cozy, nicely decorated, and a short walk to the beach. Maddy couldn't have been more flexible or accomodating while I was making my arrangements. She kindly answered many e-mails and questions prior to our arrival and allowed us a later check-out the next day. We appreciated the chance to sleep in and it helped us feel refreshed the rest of our trip.

I can't wait to return to England. Next time, I'll bring my husband and my favorite stone cottage in Weymouth will be our first stop!
