Great holiday location for views of Chesil beach and beautiful sunsets
Loved the high spec property. From the picture window there were stunning views! The location was great for Weymouth beach, Bennetts water gardens, the Jailhouse Cafe, Portland light house and more. Also had a great boat trip from Weymouth followed by eating at Les Enfants Terrible on the marina. The food at the Lobster Pot was as good as described by reviews. The stoney beach was a short walk down a steep hill close to the house. So many people fishing! I suggest you ask for a second key if you intend to do early morning runs or come in late at night (while the others of your group sleep) as you either end up locked into the property or the door is left unlocked (no letterbox)! One shock was having a guest slow worm appear in the house - thinking it was a snake! Useful to know - only 4 dining chairs for a 6 people accomodation.
