These three holiday cottages situated on The Isle of Portland, which offers stunning scenery and a wealth of wildlife, are in a superb location to enjoy Chesil Beach and the world-famous Jurassic Coast. Each one can accommodate four guests and can be booked together or separately.

For those who love water sports, guests can enjoy sailing, canoeing, fishing, swimming and boating on the doorstep, or on Portland itself. The Tout Quarry has wonderful views over Chesil Beach and at Portland Bill - one can climb the 153 steps of the lighthouse and absorb the coastlines rugged beauty, followed by a cream tea at the tea room.
