  • "Thanks for a great week, your house was lovely which made our stay even better."

    The walled garden is great, the downstairs loo is not mentioned in the details, and was a great addition facility.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We were so pleased to hear you enjoyed staying at Alpen Rose Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Great holiday cottage with everything we could need for a very comfortable stay."

    Great location and very well equipped cottage. Would love to return one day. The kids absolutely loved it too.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. We try to make the cottage feel like home from home and your feedback reflects that. We’d love for you to stay again in the future. All the Best Sue and Dave Property Owner

  • "Great cottage, with everything and more you need for a great stay, parking at the back was a bit tight for our medium size car, so we parked after the first day outside the middle garage opposite, although during the day you could park outside the cottage when people are at work."

    So all in all a lovely week in a lovely cottage. The very local fish and chip shop and Chinese takeaway are great, but we went to miss Piggies Pantry to get some cakes, and for 2 doughnuts and a small sausage roll, came to £6 ! And the Lobster Pot down on the Bill charges £9 for 2 coffees and a small beer taken outside, so just be wary, otherwise a great cottage and area to stay in.

  • "This is one of the best appointed cottages we've ever stayed in."

    Comfy beds and everything in first class condition. The courtyard garden is very pretty . There's lots to do on Portland and the cottage is in a village minutes, 10 minutes walk to the South west coastal.path, a short drive to Chesil beach and 20 minutes ( approx) from Weymouth. We had a great 6 days stay. Thank you.

  • "Alpen Rose was every bit as nice as the pictures shown, homely, clean, welcoming and comfortable."

    Everything you could want was catered for. There is a lovely little walled garden you come through to enter the back of the house. The cottage is in a perfect location to explore Portland, which itself was a revelation to us, not having been there before. The view from the top of the isle over Chesil Beach at sunset was simply breathtaking, quite literally! We were lucky enough to get quite a bit of sunshine despite bad weather reports and the view over Chesil Beach in the sunshine was magical too. The cottage is only about 7 or 8 minutes away from the Portland Bill lighthouse and though we knew we wouldn't yet be allowed to climb it because of Covid, we decided to visit the spot anyway. We sat on massive rocks watching (and listening) to huge white crested breakers crashing onto the rocks below. We never expected that, and the experience was mesmerising. Because we stayed the week before lockdown was due to ease on May 17th no indoor hospitality or museums etc. were open, however there seemed to be no shortage of cafes. little shops and restaurants to visit on Portland from the 17th. There is a supermarket just 5 minutes drive from the cottage where you can stock up on supplies, and a wonderful little fish and chip shop just 3 minutes walk away which I can highly recommend. The beach at Weymouth was stunning, and we loved walking the length of it, with the tide coming in and beautiful white waves lapping the beach from an aquamarine sea. We feel very fortunate to have found Alpen Rose on Portland and cannot wait to go back again.

  • "The house was lovely and had everything you need."

    I did find the Windows tricky but it wasn't a big problem and some of the duvets were a bit heavy. These are small problems that did not in any way take away from the fact that the house was really, really nice. There are also lovely neighbours. Thankyou very much. ps you should mention that you DO have Sky tv and also a downstairs WC that wasn't mentioned.
