Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Portland

Hosts to the London 2012 Olympic sailing and connected to the Dorset resort of Weymouth by a causeway, holiday cottages in Portland are located on a small Island connected to the mainland. Portland's limestone coastline is gorgeous, as well as being perfect for sailing and diving. With an interesting stretch of sand that runs adjacent to the connecting road from Weymouth to Portland, it also branches beyond the land, leaving a sandy strip further out to sea, eventually joining the mainland with the Isle of Portland.

Behind a low stone wall and lawns stands a lighthouse tower and buildings.

From a map, Portland looks like its own secluded island, with tall cliffs lining its perimeter and a stretch of beautiful golden sand. The harbour is one of the largest on the south coast of England and is constantly in use, from pleasure boats to cross-channel ferries. After a long day browsing, the local cuisine is beautifully fresh, with seafood restaurants dotted along the coast, ready to await your pleasure. With Weymouth a hop and a skip down the road, the potential for indulging in a spot retail therapy is irresistible.
