About Sea View Cottage

Sea View Cottage is a charming stone cottage situated a stone's throw from the beach on the tiny island of Portland. If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is full of character and interesting quirks, then Sea View Cottage is the place for you. Dating back to 1805, the cottage has retained many of it's original features such as it's two foot stone walls, inglenook fireplace which now houses a log burning stove and exposed roof timbers that were once a ship's mast. Recently extended and upgraded, it now offers comfortable self-catering holiday accommodation for four guests in two bedrooms.

Portland is a haven for any outdoor adventure seekers. Walkers can enjoy miles of stunning scenery, dramatic cliffs and secluded coves along the South West Coastal Path whilst cyclists can explore the 17 mile Portland Trail cycle route. Not only is there fantastic walking and biking on the doorstep but if you have got a head for heights you can also go rock climbing and abseiling. Watersports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with the huge number of activities on offer. Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy is less than a mile away from Sea View Cottage and you can also try your hand at diving, wind surfing, kite surfing, kayaking and fishing. And no trip to Portland would be complete without visiting the distinctive red and white striped Portland Bill Lighthouse. The view is well worth climbing the 153 steps to the top.

If you would rather just spend lazy days on the beach you will have plenty to choose from. Chesil Beach is a huge shingle bank that connects Portland to the mainland, or if you would prefer sand between your toes head to the long Blue Flag beach at Weymouth. A little further afield you can visit the fascinating limestone arch at Durdle Door where you can enjoy a gentle stroll along to Lulworth Cove. Or any keen fossil hunters should head to Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

At the end of the day enjoy a drink and something to eat at one of the many fantastic restaurants or head back to Sea View Cottage where you can cook up your own feast for the night or enjoy a glass of wine and barbeque on the (new for 2022) sun deck and viewing platform. The choices are endless and guests who have booked, are given access to the 'online guest book' packed full of useful information about the cottage and area.
