Located in Portland Bill, Dorset
Lloyds Cottage is a holiday cottage in Portland Bill, Dorset, sleeping 6 with a private hot tub and stunning coastal views in almost every direction
Lloyds Cottage is a stunning coastal property located right on Portland Bill itself. Set in an elevated position just below the original lighthouse you have far reaching sea views in almost every direction. Portland Bill itself has a huge area of grassland to play on, a pub and right on the Bill itself the wonderful Lobster Pot which I can highly recommend. The current lighthouse has a visitor area and the middle lighthouse is now a bird observatory and nature centre as Portland is on a bird migration route and gets many different species visit each year. There is great fishing around the Bill, there are many rock pools to explore and even if the weather turns for the worse the area puts on a stunning display. The walks in the area are plentiful with, as you would imagine, stunning coastal views to accompany your walk on many of the routes. Shops, pubs and restaurants are just a 4 minute drive away and Weymouth with it's sandy beach about 15 minutes away. This really would make an excellent base for a coastal holiday.
The accommodation at Lloyds Cottage is all on the ground floor and comprises of an open plan living space with a living area with Sky TV, Blu-ray player, iPod dock, CD player and WiFi enabled throughout all with wonderful sea views. The dining/sun room has French doors leading out and has a dining table with seating for six. The kitchen comes well equipped with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a washer/dryer as well as a range of accessories and utensils. There are three bedrooms. Bedroom one is a king size double with an en suite shower room. Bedroom two has two single beds, one of which is electric and also has an en suite shower room. Bedroom three is a king size double with a separate bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and toilet. There is also a cloakroom. A cot and highchair can be provided upon request.
Outside is a wonderful garden with plentiful sea views in almost every direction. What better way to take in those views than from your own private hot tub that will accommodate all six guests or while away the time on the deck complete with furniture and a barbecue. The garden is walled and has a large amount of lawn to play on. There is off road parking for 3 cars. Your fuel, power, bed linen and towels are all included in the price.
Portland Bill is the most famous part of Portland and has three lighthouses. One is now a holiday cottage, one is the bird observatory and one is actually a lighthouse. The lighthouse is open to the public on certain days and is well worth a look round. The bird observatory is positioned well as Portland, and Portland Bill especially is a haven for birds. Other attractions include Pulpit Rock, the blow hole, passing whales and dolphins and so much more - just make time for a visit.Read more
Although many walkers make Portland Bill their end destination it actually works very well as a starting point. Head north-east along the coast to the beach at Church Ope and then then up past Pensylvania Castle to Portland Museum. Or head north-west, again along the coast, to Westcliff and stunning views across Lyme Bay as you walk along the cliff tops.
Although there are few houses at the Bill there is an excellent choice for food. The Lobster Pot is right next to the lighthouse and is open all day serving breakfasts, lunch, afternoon teas and dinners. They also have a kiosk serving food and ice creams and a shop. The large grassy area also makes it an excellent place for picnics.Read less
