We stayed with friends on New Years Eve in this beautiful terraced cottage. The experience was amazing: Portland Bill seems to exist in a time warp and I will always remember the sound of the shingle on Chesil Beach, the log fires in the quay...More

We knew that there was no shower, but did not expect that the bath fixtures were a hot and cold faucet, no mixer. That meant I had to wash my hair in the kitchen sink. I was not planning on cooking, but if I had,...More

About the neighbourhood
Portland is a wealth of adventure at any time of year. There are several beaches each with its own very distinct character. Chesil is the closest and is considered a geographical wonder. The beach runs from Portland all the way to Bridport, and is not only very beautiful to look at, but is also a protected wildlife habitat, a source of income for local fishermen ( oysters are grown in it now ) and great place to go walking or just generally spending time. Portland Bill is a well know Portland landmark for the lighthouse, and the huge rock formation Pulpit Rock. Portland Bill also features the ever popular restaurant The Lobster Pot that sells genuinely local fare with a fantastic view.

On the Chesil Beach side of Portland is 'The Cove' which incorporates the sea wall defences as...

Artist Row is a narrow, no through road and if you drive down you will need to reverse out. many people find it easier to reverse down the road so they are driving forwards on the way out to re-join the main street. Parking is in Fortuneswell (restricted) or in one of two free car parks within walking distance (approx 300m).
