Located in Chiswell, Dorset
The View is a holiday cottage in Portland, Dorset, sleeping 6 with, as the name suggests, amazing sea views over Lyme Bay and just a stroll to Chesil Beach
The View is located in Chiswell, Portland, in an elevated position which offers fantastic views over Lyme Bay and the Jurassic Coast. You are within a stones throw of Chesil Beach and the promenade leading to the Cove House Inn but are within walking distance of many fine restaurants and pubs. Perfectly located to take advantage of the water sports in the area you are just 5 minutes walk from the National Sailing Academy where you can try windsurfing or sailing but within the local area there is also canoeing, kite surfing, diving or try your hand at stand up paddle boarding. The walks are plentiful from here also, although getting to the top of the island is relatively steep but the rewards worth it as you can then walk through Tout Quarry sculpture Park all the way down to Portland Bill and have some lunch at the Lobster Pot.

There is a dedicated parking area by the cottage plus on road parking is possible for a further car across the parking space. Your fuel, power, bed linen and towels are all included in the price.
Chiswell was once the biggest settlement on Portland but with its close proximity to the sea, the hurricane of 1824 changed that. These days the sea defences protect Chiswell which is good as it is full of charm. Chesil Beach is right on your door step, so walks or any activity to do with the sea is very close to hand. The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Centre is also a short walk away. Look out for the beautiful walled community garden near Great Ope, a great place to stop for a very tranquil 5 or 10 minutes.Read more
