  • "We had a great week at Langham Cottage."

    Lovely house, very comfortable and a great location. Nice sea views from the sitting room, front bedroom and attic room. Parking is limited outside the property but we found spaces available within a short walk.

  • "A lovely well equipped cottage with fantastic sea views from every room at the front of the cottage the pictures do not do this cottage justice we did not expect to see the sea from the living room and bedroom!"

    But my goodness the bedroom views not just from the top floor but also the middle bedroom are amazing!

  • "We absolutely loved this cottage."

    It was in a great location. It was clean & tidy when we arrived and very well equipped. It felt so homely and we felt so comfortable there. Would definitely recommend this to others and if we plan to go to Weymouth again in the future would book this again.

    Lovely welcome gifts. Lots of extras made it home from home. Parking was tight and was entertaining watching people turn round, we were lucky we managed to get parked outside for the whole of our stay. Cove house inn lovely location for watching sunset, had 3 lovely meals their staff very friendly. Only downside felt Dream Cottages very unhelpful when wanted to change booking, booked with other companies previously and never had an issue!!

    Great views from the top room.The only issue was the parking, which we knew about before we booked but there was limited parking in the town as well.I would advise people to pre book restaurants as some were booked up for the whole week.Lots of lovely areas to visit and lots to see and do but we felt fortuneswell itself is a little run down with many shops closed .

    What was really good was it was really well stocked with the little things needed like dishwasher tablets and bin liners. A small thing that made a big difference. Really clean and with stair gates and tthe use of a high chair and travel cot was particularly helpful for our small family. This made our stay a really enjoyable experience. Thankyou x

  • "Langham cottage is well appointed and very comfortable."

    The lovely view over Chesil beach from both the lounge and the main bedroom is a joy - and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach on a windy day is memorable. The cottage is well positioned for local shopping (Coop), a beach front cafe (Quiddles - highly recommended for breakfast) and the local on-the-beachfront Cove Inn (an excellent menu). Who could want for more?

  • "An absolute gem!"

    Spotlessly clean, very well equipped, thoughtfully kitted out. A lovely comfortable, home from home cottage. Amazing sunsets! Would definately stay again on future Dorset visits. Just to highlight, although not an issue for us as we were lucky with a parking space for the duration, but as advised, parking is difficult especially for elderly or for very young. The neighbours were very polite, and helpful with alternative parking. Highly recommended

  • "Only problem was the parking."

    We drove down when we got there and then had a big problem turning round. Parked elsewhere rest of the week, not always getting into the car park because it was full.

    Thank you for giving us a 100% score, for our cottage, we're sorry that you found it difficult to turn your car round in the cul de sac. Unfortunately, Albert Villas and the village of Fortuneswell were built well before modern cars were common and some of the roads are narrow. We don't usually have a problem with this, but are thankful for the spectacular views across the bay that our hillside location provides. Sue and Andy Property Owner

    The view is superb. The owners are sensible people. The only problem is the car. If you visit in your four-track, you'll probably have to walk, but that is Portland and you don't need to carry much; the house has it all.

    It has many features including a roll top bath. Plenty of space and fantastic views across Chesil beach. Parking can be tricky as explained in the particulars and sometimes requires tight manoeuvres but we always had a space to park. Only basic consumables are provided including toilet roll, washing up liquid and hand wash, plus basic tea/coffee sachets/uht milk, so you’ll need to provide everything else or get supplies in when you arrive. Overall a lovely quiet place which we thoroughly enjoyed our downtime. I didn’t want to leave!

    . Nice and local to the beach, shop and pub which were all within walking distance. Parking as mentioned before hand was not easy this was not a problem for us although we had a truck which we got down to unload and load up by the house we would never get park out side even when there was spaces available , as it was very busy the car parks recommended were always full so ended up having to park down but the big roundabout which for us was ok as don’t mind walking and had a trolley but for anyone looking for close parking would not suit. The view out the bedroom window is beautiful and lovely to wake up to. For our boys the joy of watching the military aircraft flying round and landing near which could be seen from the bedroom windows by was a high light of their holiday.

    The smaller group who look after them, Dream Cottages, and the owners, do a good job in providing good information and thinking about what visitors need. However, I am totally fed up with being bombarded with emails by Sykes, most of which are repetitive, have lots of information I don't want, and are trying to sell me something else. This has put me off using your agency again.

  • "Fantastic holiday home with great views along Chesil beach and out to sea."

    Lovingly renovated by owners, with well equipped kitchen and excellent family bathroom. We had a great week here in February half term, enjoying cosy nights in with the log burner on. The property is in a peaceful location, with good local amenities within easy walking distance including the fantastic Cove House Inn and Osprey Leisure Centre. Although parking outside of the property is not guaranteed there is plenty to be found within a short walking distance. There is lots to do on Portland itself. We particularly enjoyed the great view from the top of the hill by the Olympic Rings and climbing up Portland Bill lighthouse. Further afield we visited the Tank Museum at Bovington, Maiden Castle near Dorchester and hunted for fossils on Charmouth beach. We actually booked on to a guided fossil walk organised by the Charmouth Discovery centre which we can recommend. Langham Cottage would be a very good base for any one interested in water sports given it's proximity to Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy where there are facilities for sailing, power boating, kayaking, stand-up-paddle boarding and windsurfing. Stayed February 2017

The property

Located on the Isle of Portland and just a few moments from the acclaimed Chesil Beach, is the traditional style terraces house Langham Cottage with magnificent views out to sea.

It is positioned close to the end of Albert Villas, which is a quiet cut-de-sac, located on a hill which is steep at its junction with the main road.

This charming cottage is perfect for couples or a small family looking for a seaside retreat, sleeping up to four guests.

Having a sunny kitchen with dining area to enjoy your breakfast with the sun peeking out the window.

The sitting room is perfect to enjoy a family dinner at home.Whilst relaxing you can enjoy sitting by the log burner on the ground floor or admire superb stunning views on the second-floor sofa with a glass of wine.

Heading out of the cottage, walk through the lanes down a slope to the beach, where you may choose to fish, beachcomb or just enjoy the fantastic scenery.

Visiting in the early evening is a must to try and catch the sunset, as they are often spectacular when viewed from Chesil Beach whilst enjoying the sound of the waves crashing to the shore.

Recommended by previous guests for dining are The Cove House Inn and Quiddles, which are nestled next to Chesil Beach.

A supermarket, pub and shops are only a short walk away.

The National Sailing Academy is around a 15-minute walk away, making Langham a perfect base for water sports enthusiasts.

Wanting to explore the Isle of Portland further, then take the South West Coastal Path which leads you all around the exterior of the island taking in the old quarries, rugged landscape and the famous Portland Bill Lighthouse. Welcoming guests with a long and sandy beach, traditional beach entertainments and a vibrant town centre with abundance of shops and restaurants to choose from is the nearby town of Weymouth, which is just a short bus or car journey away.

For those who want a truly memorable self-catering holiday, with fantastic, panoramic sea views and having a beach only moments away then Langham Cottage is the ideal place.
