Local Area

Our beautiful cottages are fortunate to be in Portland, allowing you to enjoy walking along the stunning coastline. The Island is also a magnet for bird watches, where some the rarest species are to be discovered.

Sport lovers have an abundance of choice, with diving, wind and kite surfing, fishing and horse riding just some of the activities to choose from.

A wonderful attraction to visit is Tout Quarry, which has recently been transformed into a unique park or visit the nearby Culverwell Mesolithic site and delve into the islandís archaeology.
