Jurassic Apartments Holiday Home has a kitchen/lounge/diner with open plan seating. There are 3 en suite bedrooms, one double with king size bed is on the ground floor. A twin with en suite shower room and a double with en suite shower and bathroom with king size bed are on the first floor, both with sea views. There is a small private garden but all of our self-catering guests are welcome to use the farmhouse gardens, the summer house and the footpath leading down to the South West Coastal Path. The beach at the Fleet Saltwater Estuary is just 300 metres from the farm. Large parties can be accommodated in all 3 of our self catering units and our B&B, but rarely last minute as we always have advance bookings for some of the accommodation. Early booking vital in peak periods.
This farmhouse rural retreat is a must for anyone wanting to get away from it all and relax by the sea, in our summer house, or to walk for miles along the Jurassic Coastal Path. The dramatic coastline of the “Isle” of Portland is home to some spectacular and unique wildlife, flora and fauna, whilst the Georgian seaside resort of Weymouth offers a bustling town and harbour. Weymouth & Portland are not only at the heart of the world Heritage Coast but also the venues for the sailing events of the 2012 Olympics. Whether you're looking for a stroll on the promenade, long sandy beaches, an historic harbour side or panoramic sea and landscapes, this is the area to visit, draw, paint or sketch. We cater for small Bridge Club Holidays and can accommodate 4/5 tables. Guests have access to the large garden, summer house, lake and field leading down to the sea. Our B&B guests are served free range eggs from our chicken, beautiful bantams and ducks roaming the gardens. Self-catering available. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fL3z68Ap7mY

All properties have spectacular sea views - come and visit.

The house is on a farm close to Chesil Beach with easy access to pleasant walks along the Fleet lagoon. We appreciated the well equipped and comfortable accommodation, especially the 3 en suite double bedrooms. The living room and kitchen were spacious and the small garden was an additional bonus. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful.
My girls loved having their own ensuite bathrooms, they also had lovely views of the sea. Also had their own tv's, felt very spoilt.
Enjoyed a lovely Christmas break with the family. The accomodation was very good. Very clean and provided some nice toiletries in the bathrooms. Kitchen well stocked. Worked well with the three double bedrooms all with ensuites. The open plan living area was very spacious with a good dining area and kitchen. It was lovely to be able to walk down to the beach through the field. enjoyed a bracing walk on Christmas morning. !! The property is in a lovely area on the Fleet Lagoon sheltered by Chesil Beach and great for walks. We visited the aquarium in Weymouth which grandson enjoyed. It was ok but in winter it looked a bit tired! Ticket price included visit to the skyline tower on Weymouth beach which was worth doing. Portland Bill lighthouse is not far away and worth a visit. If we had more time we could have done more, there are plenty of places close by to visit. The owners, Jane and Keith made us very welcome. Very good for children with the animals on the farm to go and visit when you want. Would definately recomend for family/friends get togethers
