Overview

About the property

House in Portland, Dorset, England - 5 Minutes Walk Up On To The Prom, With Beautiful Prospect Of The Sweep Of Chesil Beach

The house is one of a pair built of the local Portland stone, over painted white, with a small front garden in a sunny position on the street facing the sea wall, in the centre of the village of Chiswell. The frontage is Victorian with large sash windows. Inside there are 17th-18th century features.

Why Janey and Francis Carline chose Portland

The house came to our family when Francis' grandfather bought the pair of properties in Chiswell early last century. The houses were let to local families for many decades, then one was sold; eventually there was one elderly fisherman, Bob Antony, well known as the 'Wobbler'. He died in 1984 having never required electricity or running hot water. The improvements were put in thereafter: bathroom, electricity, top floor bedrooms where lobster pots had been stored; kitchen renewed twice. Yet the house retains much character of 100 and more years ago, and is adorned with artwork by family, fellow students and Portlanders.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Portland is so picturesque and the cottage is so charming...Tom (the caretaker living 4 doors away) was very helpful..."



"We had a lovely time in your cottage and found it very clean and pleasant."

Cozy and quaint

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and we found it in Portland. This cottage is beautiful. The accommodation is very well chosen and the artwork exquisite. The family that own this cottage were very helpful and friendly and they have a friend living nearby if there are any problems. We stayed for a weekend with our small dog to be able to take advantage of the walks around Portland. We certainly did that. We made it up the steep hill and down to Portland Bill, we also walked a long way along the beach. However, there are still areas that we did not have time to explore so we will return soon.
