    “The cottage delights and the photos are representative on first arrival.”

    Lovely beamed living room with woodburner, well equipped kitchen etc. Stairs to top room are steep. (Very common in Portland cottages) We were a little disappointed in the cleanliness when we arrived. We could see that the cleaner had vacuumed and cleaned surfaces, made bed all fine, however it was obvious that a spring clean is well overdue. Lots of cobwebs, furniture had not been moved to clean so very dusty in these places. (eg behind TV), cobwebs on books on bookshelf, and a Christmas Tree left under the bed covered in dust. We had to clean the windows ourselves in order to be able to see out! On the plus side the cottage is warm (it was quite cold outside for the time of year) , beds are comfortable, TV good. There is no oven glove which is tricky using the oven. There is no mobile signal and no wifi available. (sometimes sporadic at front of house eg BT Broadband). The location is excellent for the Chesil Beach, Quiddles Cafe which is lovely , and the unique Cove House Inn. Both of these a short walk and Dog friendly. There is no sea view from the cottage, only the back of the sea defence wall. Parking can be a nightmare. Our group had two cars. We found that parking in the afternoon was usually OK, but come back in the evening and often very difficult to find any space near the cottage. Cottage well served by public transport, bus stop, regular services just metres away.

The property

Situated behind the sea wall and just a minute or so from the beach, Neptune Cottage is a delightful terraced fisherman's cottage dating back 200 years but now made a modern holiday home.

Located in the popular Chiswell area of Portland it is ideally located for water sports enthusiasts; the National Sailing Academy as well as diving and windsurfing facilities are nearby.

There are wetsuit drying hooks and hose conveniently in the property. With its character features blended with contemporary interior furnishings, together with its beachside location, Neptune Cottage is a popular choice.

With accommodation over three floors you have everything you need for a family’s or a group of friends stay.

The bedrooms are located on the first and second floors with comfortable ground floor shower room and spacious first floor bathroom.

Wooden beds and furniture throughout with green accents make it an attractive holiday home. As the property doesn’t have WiFi service, you can relax and dive into your holiday and forget about daily routine.

There are so many different activities for you to choose from! The spectacular Chesil beach, which is dog friendly, stretches for miles and is literally behind the cottage, and can be accessed in seconds.

You can walk on top of the bank towards Chesil Beach visitor centre where you can find out more about Dorset wildlife. As well as enjoying the sun and views on the beach, if you are a keen fisherman (or lady) you may try and catch your tea.

Alternatively, you may partake of a meal and drink at the adjacent Cove Inn which has a terrace overlooking the beach or Quiddles, just along the esplanade which serves fresh seafood.

Try a walk along the South West coastal path from here which in its entirety is 630 miles long.

One of the sections goes around the rugged landscape of the Isle of Portland with three lighthouses, XIII century church ruins, Rufus castle, Portland Harbour and more.

Returning to Neptune Cottage you have a variety of takeaways, pubs and restaurants including the acclaimed Blue Fish Cafe within a few minutes’ walk.

Local shops are also conveniently located a ten-minute stroll away.

Neptune house is a lovely holiday home for families and water sports enthusiasts.
