Lounging elegantly at the top of a slope overlooking the harbour at Portland, this extraordinary house, surrounded by a huge garden and terraces invokes the sophistication and luxury of old-school Hollywood, with its palm-fringed drive, pacific-blue Crittal windows and the house itself dazzlingly white against the blue of the sea beyond.
Looking like an Agatha Christie film set, the luxurious interiors of Portland House have been lovingly put together, retaining many of the original 1930’s features such as the kitchen, bathrooms and light fittings. Filled with period furniture, it’s easy to imagine that you’ve stepped back in time when you holiday here. Sleeping twelve, with seven spacious bedrooms, the seductive glamour of the house and its brilliant views make a truly unforgettable spot for a family gatherings, or groups wishing to celebrate in style. Large French windows open out from most rooms onto two broad terraces outside (one above the other), and the house is designed to make the most of the south coast sun.
A hidden gem on the Dorset coastline, Portland House looks over the glittering water and basks in the tropical climate of the South Coast, which rivals the Mediterranean on a sunny day. Sitting just out of Weymouth itself, on a quiet residential road, you’ll find everything you need in terms of nearby shops and restaurants in the bustling centre of Weymouth a gentle stroll away. You can also explore the town’s sandy beaches and harbour with its stories of past sailing escapades.
If you ever tire of living the high life, then head further afield to explore the surrounding area, including the West Dorset Heritage coast on your doorstep. A short drive to the east will take you to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where dinosaurs once roamed. Go fossil hunting along the beaches or take in the view of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door from the headlands. When you stay with us, or visit National Trust places nearby like Hardy’s Cottage or Corfe Castle, you’re helping us to look after them for the future.
