The property

Situated on the Isle of Portland, just a few moments from the acclaimed Chesil Beach, Langham Cottage is a traditional style terraced house with magnificent views out to sea.

It is located close to the end of Albert Villas, a quiet cut-de-sac, located on a hill which is steep at its junction with the main road.

This charming cottage sleeps up to four guests, so is perfect for couples or a small family looking for a seaside retreat.

The cottage has a sunny kitchen with dining area to enjoy your breakfast or feast on a family dinner at home in the sitting room.

To relax, you can enjoy sitting by the log burner on the ground floor or admire superb and far reaching views from the second-floor sofa with a glass of wine.

Leaving the cottage, walk through the lanes down a slope to the beach, and here you may choose to fish, beachcomb or just enjoy the wonderful scenery.

If visiting in the early evening do try and catch the sunset as they are often spectacular when viewed from Chesil Beach, the sound of waves crashing to the shore adds drama.

Nestled next to Chesil Beach and recommended by previous guests for dining are The Cove House Inn and Quiddles.

A short walk away are a supermarket, pub and shops.

Around a 15-minute walk away is The National Sailing Academy, making Langham a perfect base for water sports enthusiasts.

To explore the Isle of Portland, take the South West Coastal Path which leads you all around the exterior of the island taking in the rugged landscape, old quarries and famous Portland Bill Lighthouse. The nearby town of Weymouth is just a short bus or car journey away and welcomes guests with its' long and sandy beach, traditional beach entertainments and a vibrant town centre with an abundance of shops and restaurants to choose from.

Langham Cottage is ideal for those who want a truly memorable self-catering holiday, with fantastic, panoramic sea views and the beach few minutes away.
