Located on the rugged and wild Dorset Coastal Isle of Portland, which forms part of the Jurassic Coast, the world heritage site, St. John's view is a modern detached house with sea views. Just around five minutes' walk will take you to Chesil Beach, a pebbly beach which stretches for 18 miles to West Bay. Here you may choose to watch the fisherman as the waters are rich in seafood, stroll along with beach for as far as your energy takes you, or just sit and enjoy the sea views and cliffs surrounding. Circling the whole Isle of Portland is a coastal walk which is perfect for the adventurous and for those wishing to explore on a smaller scale, do visit Tout Quarry where you can wander among unique stone carvings in a disused quarry. Portland is a haven for wild birds, which inhabit the many inlets and coves, do bring binoculars so you spot different breeds. Take a tour of the iconic Portland Lighthouse and stop at the Lobster Pot for a crab sandwich or cream tea. St.John's View is very conveniently located for The National Sailing Academy and the surrounding seas; popular with all kinds of water sports enthusiasts. The major seaside resort of Weymouth with its traditional family attractions is an easy drive or bus journey away.

About the Location

Portland is a wonderful holiday destination. It offers arguably the best sailing and windsurfing waters in the world, an abundance of rare wildlife since Portland is a major migrating point for birds, miles of stunning coastal walks, great fishing trips straight from Portland Marina, beautiful beaches, some of which are dog friendly all year around, fantastic pubs and some of the best cream teas in Dorset.

Meander through the pretty villages filled with old stone cottages, cobbled streets, traditional shops and cafes and stop for cream tea and lashings of luscious cake. The main village of Portland is Easton, which sits on the plateau. Then there is Fortuneswell, which lies on a steep hill and was described by Thomas Hardy as being ‘houses above houses, one man’s doorstep rising behind his neighbour’s chimney’. Southwell is another charming village, filled with quaint quarrymen cottages and a village pub in the heart of the village. Park here to access the glorious cliff walks along the South West Coastal Path.
