The property

Situated on the rugged and beautiful Isle of Portland, Quarr Cottage is a charming property located in the popular area of Wakeham.

With traditional features such as stone floors and a feature wall, this cottage provides all the facilities you need for a self-catering holiday.

Set over two floors and upon entering the property into the open plan living space, you will be welcomed into the cosy sitting room.

Settle down on the comfortable sofas in front of the wood burning stove and catch up on your favourite TV shows or read a good book.

You will find the kitchen will cater for all of your culinary needs as you rustle up tasty meals to enjoy at the dining table whilst planning your itinerary.

To conclude the ground floor, is a shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC where you can freshen up after a busy day exploring the island.

Moving through the property to the first floor, are two bedrooms; one double and one twin.

Both bedrooms are well presented and will guarantee a tranquil place to relax and unwind before a restful night’s sleep.

The property benefits from an enclosed rear garden with a patio area where you can sit and enjoy your morning tea or coffee or evening glass of wine.

Quarr Cottage is conveniently located for you to discover lots of Portland’s attractions.

Just a short 5-minute walk from the property will take you into Easton Square where there are a few shops to pick up your essentials and cafes and pubs offering local food and drink.

A few minutes from Quarr Cottage in the other direction is Portland Museum and Church Ope cove – a small secluded pebble beach.

A more energetic walk of about 40 minutes will take you to Portland Bill, famous for its iconic red and white striped Lighthouse.

The view from here is simply stunning with its far reaching sea views and dramatic cliffs.

Portland is also renowned for its rare and varied wild life and birds as well as multiple water sports, so there is much to be found on your doorstep.

If you would like to venture off the island, then Weymouth is only a 15-minute drive away with its Georgian seafront, award winning beach and high street shops.

This property would suit a family or a small group of friends who want to explore Portland and the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

About the location


Portland 2.3 miles; Weymouth 6.8 miles; Dorchester 14.4 miles.

Wakeham is a small hamlet situated in a conservation area on the eastern side of the rugged ‘Isle’ of Portland above the beach at Church Ope Cove. The wide road running through the centre was constructed to accommodate the transport of Portland Stone by horse drawn carts from the numerous local quarries. You can learn all about the stone quarrying at a fascinating exhibition within the local Portland Museum, and then explore the nearby coastal path, a steep walk down to the cove, passing the ruins of the Grade I listed Rufus Castle and St Andrew’s Church along the way. Sheltered Church Ope Cove offers a popular base for diving as there are numerous wrecks to discover off the shore, whilst there are also plenty of opportunities locally for fishing, climbing, sailing and bird watching. Alternatively take the drive down to the very tip at Portland Bill, which juts out into the channel and watch the boats brave their way through the rough waves. Whilst the nearby family friendly, seaside resort of Weymouth offers visitors plenty of family friendly attractions. A most attractive and unique holiday destination at any time of the year.

Please note: there are steep stairs leading to a loft room not in use for guests.
