Portland Perfection

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage on a lovely island, enhanced by the owner contacting us when the weather turned, to make sure we were okay.

Will definitely be returning.

Characterful, welcoming and wonderfully presented

  • 5 of 5

Central island location means everything is within walking distance - coastal walk to Portland Bill lighthouse turned up some lovely views there and on the way. Local shops had all we needed. Parking was easy. A charming, welcoming and versatile living space in excellent condition, beautifully presented and with loads of thoughtful touches adapted itself well for we 2 adults and 3 children (10-12 years old). A perfect short break.

Property: 'Top to Bottom', Reforn, Easton, Portland, Dorset.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, modern, well equipped, excellent state of decoration / maintenance. Centrally placed and although no dedicated parking, on-street parking always available within a few meters of the property (during both our stays at "Top to Bottom").

Portland is a fascinating place with plenty of places to visit (Portland Museum, Grove Prison Museum (unexpectedly interesting and informative), Portland Castle, D-Day Experience, Lighthouse, Bird Observatory, The Verne (and Jail House Cafe), Coastal path around Portland inc that part along the railways bed; Tout Quarry Sculpture Park, Decommissioned Church at end of reform - superb guides tell you a lot about the social history of Portland, Pressgang Riots, blind child buried facing east etc etc - fascinating stuff. No need to leave Portland during a week or more's stay.

Excellent natural history all around - entomology as well as ornithology and geology (doubtless botany too).

'Top to Bottom' well placed just off Easton Square. "Sugar Loaf" cafe opposite the property is excellent vale and provides a good choice of unpretentious home cooking and a warm welcome. Co-op store, "Martins" the newsagent/Post Office and "Boots" between them supply all holiday needs (the butcher's deli opposite has dressed crab fresh in every Wednesday). Some restaurants are on the pretentious side - "New Inn" for example - poor choice of beers, limited menu (only one choice if you are vegetarian!), arty-farty presentation of the food which never to my liking (I judge a meal by the quality of the ingredients, not the edible flowers in the garnish or blobs a pea-reduction smeared on the plate; I left thinking "hmm, another one of those places where I could have cooked a far better meal" My wife requested no salt on her chips, but her meal arrived without the salad! Table next to us - one of two persons was served wrong main course (there were only 9 customers at the time, getting 2 out of 9 wrong when not busy is not a good sign). "Pulpit Inn" Portland Bill, restaurant is very much "take it or leave it" probably because there is no passing trade. Meals OK but on the pricey side and service - as in many UK restaurants - rather slap-dash. "Quibbles Cafe" at Chesil Cove is excellent, good attentive service and value for money - their fresh crab sandwich is VERY well filled; cream tea very generous and they are licences now!

Portland is a wonderful place with friendly people. We'll be back.
