Superb Portland Escape

Sleeps 4
2 dogs
2 bedrooms
1 bathroom

If you're looking for a base for your next getaway, the Royal Isle of Portland is a great choice. Part of the much photographed Jurassic Coast, Portland is a unique island known for its rugged cliffs, stunning views and rich maritime history. You can explore historic Portland Bill lighthouse and the Grove Museum, or simply relax on the beautiful pebble swathes of Chesil Beach. The town of Weymouth is just 3.5 miles across the causeway and the county town of Dorchester 10 miles away, both of which offer plenty of attractions, from shopping and dining to historical sites and cultural events. Also within 18 miles is Abbotsbury with its swannery and subtropical gardens, charming Burton Bradstock and ever popular West Bay. From the street stone steps lead up to the front door into this mid terraced cottage. Grade 2 listed, the charm and character is immediately evident as soon as you step in the door. The first room you come to is the cosy lounge, which has a wood burner, exposed stone and a Smart TV. Just next door is the kitchen with a compact dining area. Between the kitchen and the lounge is a cottage style staircase rising to the first floor. On this level is the spacious bathroom and a king size bedroom. A second cottage style staircase rises to the eaves of the property and a cosy twin bedroom. Due to the age of the property, there are areas of restricted head height and very steep staircases, which only adds to its character and charm, but care should be taken. Heading outside via a door in the kitchen you will come to an enclosed courtyard with a barbecue and a bistro set perfect for enjoying your morning coffee. A short flight of stone steps leads to a second terrace incorporating a fire pit, and a corner sofa positioned to make the most of the stunning far reaching sea views.

2 bedrooms 1 king size, 1 twin. 1 bathroom with freestanding bath, separate shower and WC. Gas hob and electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, air fryer dishwasher washing machine, air fryer and Tassimo coffee machine. Smart TV available in the lounge. Wood burner (first basket of logs included October to April). Travel cot, highchair and stairgate available. Enclosed courtyard garden with furniture and Gas BBQ. Free roadside parking in the surrounding streets (subject to availability). Beach, shops and pubs within 0.25 miles. Please note some rooms have restricted head room and very steep staircases.
