    “A lovely, clean, well maintained and welcoming apartment with the most stunning views (I spent hours just sitting out on the balcony looking out at the view).”

    Four adults in our party and we didn't have transport ....prior to arriving I wasn't sure how we were going to cope but once we were there we had no problems whatsoever. We took full advantage of a weekly group save ticket of £55 (for up to 5 people) and we travelled the whole of the Dorset coast . We had a brilliant holiday. Portland itself is steeped in history and the views are spectacular. The welcome pack we found on arrival had loads of info on the surrounding area. What can I say more ...

Portland itself is steeped in history and the views are spectacular. The welcome pack we found on arrival had loads of info on the surrounding area. What can I say more except it's a lovely lovely apartment. The group consisted of four very tired and stressed older nurses in need of some respite after Avery hectic few years...we came away so relaxed ..so it's back to the wards we go. Thankyou Daphne and Matthew and dream Cottages for the best holiday

The property

Bear's Apartment is a magnificent fourth-floor apartment that is situated on the borders of Castletown, Portland.

Bear's Apartment has direct sea views, a great position close to a hub of amenities, the beach, and the marina, a sleek interior, a private balcony, and designated parking, making it the perfect base for a seascape.

Park up and ascend the steps up to the fourth floor, before discovering the open-plan living space, where you can prepare meals in the contemporary kitchen, dine in as a four, and unwind on the stylish corner sofa while looking out at the coast.

Go outside to fully appreciate your surroundings, enjoy an outdoor gathering on the balcony, unwinding into the evening with a glass of wine.

Choose between a double bedroom with a balcony and a twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room when sleep calls, both well-appointed and complete with ample storage.

The apartment includes a sleek bathroom with a bath with shower over.

Prepare to explore the marina, purchase some supplies, or dine out at The Kitchen at Portland Marina.

If you prefer a day of entertainment, visit Weymouth and its shoreline of attractions, which includes Weymouth Museum, Alexandra Gardens amusement park, Nothe Fort, RSPB Radipole Lake, and SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth.

Alternatively, continue walking to enjoy the shoreline of Chesil Beach, which spans an 18-mile stretch and is also a haven for water sports and wildlife spotting.

The county centre of Dorchester, which is also home to other attractions, can be reached by travelling via the Dorset AONB; here, you can brush up on your local knowledge at the Dorset Museum or explore the Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens before coming home for sundowners.

Visit Bear's Apartment for a breath-taking seascape.
