    “The location was a little bit out of town for us but the flat was of a very high standard, very tastefully decorated and comfortable.”

The property

This second floor apartment is located on the rugged yet beautiful Isle of Portland on the World Heritage Coast in Dorset.

Portland boasts an isolated location with rocky, coastal scenery, giving the island its own special atmosphere.

The Old Council Chamber has a luxury feel with a modern interior throughout and is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday.

The open plan living/kitchen/diner is a great space for you to eat and relax.

Enjoy tasty meals at the breakfast bar or cosy down on the comfy sofa and catch up on your favourite TV shows or plan your itinerary together.

The bedroom has a king size bed which will ensure a tranquil night’s sleep after a busy day exploring all that Portland has to offer.

The bathroom has a walk in shower, basin and WC for you to freshen up in before you begin your day.

Less than a 10-minute walk away is the secluded and clear waters of Chesil Cove which is ideal for scuba diving, rock pooling, fishing or simply soaking up the sun.

Venture to the top of the island to Portland Bill and discover the iconic red and white striped lighthouse.

From here, the far reaching sea views and dramatic cliff tops are stunning and there are coastal walks and climbs to pursue.

Portland’s unique geology and position makes it home to an extraordinarily rich variety of birds, animals and plant life to observe.

The main seaside town of Weymouth is just a 15-minute drive away and local bus services run frequently with bus stops close to the property.

With its famous sandy beach, safe waters and the attractive charm of the Georgian seafront, Weymouth has array of shops, cafes and bars to choose from.

Enjoy an ice cream or fish and chips whilst strolling through the old historic harbour and watch the boats sail into the marina beneath the town bridge which opens every two hours in the summer months.

The Old Council Chamber is a comfortable, well-presented home away from home which is sure to be the perfect base for your holiday here in delightful Dorset.
