The property

A truly spectacular lodge, occupying one of the most captivating locations on Portland!

Enjoying phenomenal sea views from its cliff top position, the lodge promises to be a wonderful stay at any time of year.

Set within a small holiday park, adjacent to the incredible Pennsylvania Castle, this elegant lodge is perfect for bringing together family and friends to an action-packed location.

Inside, you will discover three spacious bedrooms, all equipped to be either twin single beds or double beds.

The master bedroom has a spacious en-suite shower room, whilst the additional bedrooms enjoy the family bathroom, complete with its bath, separate shower and his and hers sinks.

As you reach the back of the property, you open the door and are greeted with the most jaw-dropping views from the bi-fold doors in the brightly decorated open-plan living room.

Step out of the doors onto the decking area and enjoy the far-reaching views out to sea and along the world heritage Jurassic Coastline.

If you can bring yourself to look away from the views, inside you will find a fully-equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook up tasty meals to enjoy together on the decking or at the beautiful dining table.

The living area is furnished so you can spend your time gazing out to sea, or catch up on your favourite TV shows.

Cove Lodge is just moments from the South West Coast Path, 2.3 miles to Portland Bill Lighthouse, and less than 1 mile to the supermarket and local convenience shops in Easton, Portland.

If you wish to venture further than the spectacular views from Cove Lodge and the local area, then Chesil Beach is 4 miles away and Weymouth with its shallow waters and soft golden sand is just 7.5 miles away.

Cove Lodge is a wonderful base for groups who want to come and explore the Jurassic Coast.

About the location


Portland 2.3 miles; Weymouth 6.8 miles; Dorchester 14.4 miles.

Wakeham is a small hamlet situated in a conservation area on the eastern side of the rugged ‘Isle’ of Portland above the beach at Church Ope Cove. The wide road running through the centre was constructed to accommodate the transport of Portland Stone by horse drawn carts from the numerous local quarries. You can learn all about the stone quarrying at a fascinating exhibition within the local Portland Museum, and then explore the nearby coastal path, a steep walk down to the cove, passing the ruins of the Grade I listed Rufus Castle and St Andrew’s Church along the way. Sheltered Church Ope Cove offers a popular base for diving as there are numerous wrecks to discover off the shore, whilst there are also plenty of opportunities locally for fishing, climbing, sailing and bird watching. Alternatively take the drive down to the very tip at Portland Bill, which juts out into the channel and watch the boats brave their way through the rough waves. Whilst the nearby family friendly, seaside resort of Weymouth offers visitors plenty of family friendly attractions. A most attractive and unique holiday destination at any time of the year.
