    “5 little Britain is in an excellent location to walk into the centre of town or to visit further afield by car.”

    For example we drove to Portland in no time at all. We tried out the local pub and were very taken with it - a place for a pint and a chat. The interior design is very stylish. We especially enjoyed the various drawings and prints. The plantation blinds were appreciated. The free wi-fi was great. The parking space at the back of the property was handy. We could not spot the “dangerous decking” and wonder what the fuss was all about. The kitchen was well stocked with all the various kitchen ...

We could not spot the “dangerous decking” and wonder what the fuss was all about. The kitchen was well stocked with all the various kitchen utensils and crockery you might ever wish for. If I might be point out some niggles: The sofas in the sitting room though undoubtedly expensive were very low to the ground and oversized. I am 6 foot and in good health but even I had trouble getting up from them. The sitting room also needed some directional lighting ie it was very difficult to get enough light to read. The mantelpiece was aching to have a clock on it and the fireplace could do with a fire – an electric one would do – to give it some focus. There was also the same problem of a lack of reading lights in all the bedrooms. The shower off the main bedroom was underpowered. This is a shame as the one in the bathroom is first-rate.

About the location

DORCHESTER

Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
