    “A lovely apartment in a wonderful part of the world.”

    Everything was there to make it an enjoyable holiday. Our only slight criticism of the apartment was that the sofas were not that comfortable but apart from that it was faultless. There is so much to see and do in the area that it is easy to more than fill your time. Unfortunately, we didn’t make use of the pool etc as the opening times were such that we were out and about. The restricted opening times may be due to Covid but it would have been nice to be able to go for a swim early in the morning or in the evening. We would happily return here and would recommend it to friends.

The property

Resting on the peaceful Isle of Portland in Dorset, is this fabulous apartment, Sunrise Hill, boasting a superb balcony and access to the complex's on-site facilities.

Finished with a contemporary décor and sleeping two guests, this lovely dwelling provides a wonderful base from which to explore this delightful area and beyond.

Arriving at the apartment, step straight into the open-plan living space and start preparing a delicious meal for your loved on using the amply-equipped kitchen area.

Dine at the table while you plan your day's events, or perhaps admire the view with a light lunch out on the balcony.

When it is time to relax, sink into the sofa to watch the Smart TV for a couple of hours before heading to bed where the bedroom hosts a plush double and plenty of storage so you can unpack your belongings, along with an en-suite bathroom, giving you the option of a quick rinse off after a day at the beach, or a long soak in the bath to unwind and relax.

Take advantage of the on-site facilities while at the apartment and spend an afternoon burning off any excess energy in the pool and gym.

Castletown is a brilliant location, with your amenities situated close-by where you can grab your essentials from the convenience store, before savouring lunch at the traditional Green Shutters pub and basking in the sun on Portland's Chesil Beach.

Despite being an isolated island, Portland boasts a plethora of activities to partake in; visit the nearby Castletown D-Day Centre & Museum to immerse yourself in history, visit the Marina & Boatyard for a day of sailing in the English Channel, and explore the glorious Portland Castle and it's beautiful surrounding gardens.

Head to Fortuneswell to get back to nature at The Verne Local Nature Reserve, go picnicking in the Chiswell Walled Garden or go hiking through the King Barrow Quarry.

Cross Ferry Bridge to visit Weymouth, and be fascinated by the SEA LIFE aquarium, discover the unique sand sculptures in Sandworld or try your hand at go-karting at the Leisureranch, before treating yourself to an ice-cream from one of the many take-away kiosks.

Whatever you choose to do on your holiday, Sunrise Hill is the home away from home allowing you to explore all the wonders of the Jurassic Coast.
