As soon as you walk through the door of Rosa Cottage you are greeted by its warm and pleasant atmosphere and your suprised by its size it's clean tidy and has all that you need for a relaxing stay the welcome pack was well appreciated so on went the kettle and our Grandaughter set about checking what bedroom she wanted she loved the place the style is just what you won't on a break it sets you up for some chill out time the Cove is just down the road so a good stroll is in order Karin has set this place up well and deserves the custom parking is fine you just have to think like a Portlander if you park outside your door bonus if not just park a bit further down the road that's how it works no problem overall for a Portland Retreat it's Perfect enjoy Mark:-)
My family stayed here over Xmas. I had been advised that it had been nicely festively decorated. The result a fiberoptic Christmas tree and a few small objects. Which was disappointing when I had advised owner we had young children and wanted it to be special. The house wasn't very clean when we arrived under the furniture and Mat with dog hair and dust which isn't good with a baby who picks everything up. The tv was small for the room and free view signal was poor and resulted in normal programmes being unwatchable. Dinning room was good size and light. Kitchen was adequate but cooker takes a while to cook a decent size piece of meat. Washing machine and clothes airer are very handy. Bedrooms were OK size and beds comfortable. Bathroom was OK apart from no window blind, even though the glass is patterned isn't great when it's over looked and the toilet is right next to the window. We had a problem with the hot water when in the shower! I emailed owner with regards to some issues and had no reply and no answer on number in book. There is no where to put fire ashes and one metal bin for general waste and a small bin for bottles/plastic. The car parking is hit and miss and the free car park fills up quickly. It's convenient for beach and local shop. There are alot of steps in the house as areas on different levels and stairs are slippy. It's cosy with the log fire and neighbours are friendly.
Lovely cottage, warm and welcoming in style with all necessary amenities for a comfortable relaxed stay. Plenty of space for our family, generous sofas in lounge and comfy beds. Loved the fact of Chesil Beach just a short stroll away, which has an excellent pub (great food good atmosphere). Would recommend Rosa Cottage and Portland in general for families who would like some time out to breathe and enjoy the natural coast.
Lovely cottage, surprisingly quiet area as a lot of houses a round. Weymouth only 5miles away which has beautiful beach and lots of places to eat. The sea life centre in Weymouth very good and the 9 hole golf on the same complex good value. Our only issue was parking at the house we didn't come back till later in the evening which made it difficult we did find a space a few streets away on the nights we couldn't park.we did have a lovely time and would go again.
