The property

Resting on the Isle of Portland off the mainland of Dorset and lying within the beautiful Pennsylvania Castle Estate is this all-ground-floor lodge, Little Lodge.

Boasting a clifftop position with stunning sea views, this high standard property promises a wonderful and romantic stay for a couple’s escape to Dorset.

It provides a delightfully bright and open living space for you to relax in after days spent exploring the southernmost part of the Jurassic Coast, with driftwood style furnishings echoing the theme of the coast, you can wind down on the plush sofa and watch the TV on a quiet evening, or step out of the sliding patio doors to enjoy the final moments of a balmy summer evening accompanied by views down to the sea.

The sleek and stylish kitchen space holds excellent appliances for cooking up some delicious food, whether it’s rustling up a quick lunch or preparing a romantic dinner to eat out on the patio bistro table, while the breakfast bar is the perfect spot to perch at with your morning coffee before tucking into a hearty breakfast at the dining table.

Offering a tranquil place to finish your day is the wonderful bedroom where a double bed awaits you, as well as a wardrobe for storage and a two-seater sofa providing a quiet corner to delight in.

Freshen up in the pristine shower room which has a walk-in shower for you to relax in, whether you’ve come back from a day at the beach or you’re getting ready for an evening out.

A great way to get to know this unique island is by walking along the famous South West Coast Path which lies just minutes away from Little Lodge, continue on this simple but breath-taking route and come all the way to the tip of the island where Portland Bill Lighthouse lies, offering stunning panoramic scenery of the coast and sea as well as some maritime history exhibits within the structure, it is a picture-perfect scene.

You can find all you need within the village of Easton in the centre of the isle, with shops and pubs close at hand, and why not venture further for a day trip to the lovely seaside resort of Weymouth on the mainland, under ten-miles away, where you can tuck into some classic fish and chips by the harbour, afterwards indulging in an ice cream and the golden sandy beach.

Little Lodge provides the perfect home-from-home on this wonderful part of the Dorset 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.
