We are delighted to now offer this unique property for up to 7 guests. This is available as a mid-week special offer (see restrictions below).
Portland House sits within large gardens laid out by Hillier's Nurseries including a rock garden, large lawned area and sloping grounds down to the sea. The foreshore is within the Portland Harbour Shore Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI),now included within the Jurassic Coast.
The villa is furnished in Art Deco style and contains some beautiful original features and period furniture. It makes excellent use of the natural slope maximising exposure to the fine south-facing views. It has two broad terraces, one above the other, and most rooms in the house have large French windows opening onto them. At each end of the front, wrapping around each corner of the building, are arcaded loggias, perfect for shade on hot summer days.
If you have a larger group of up to 12 guests then Portland House is ideal for a special gathering.

No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.
