Details

Connnected to Dorset only by a road-bridge and the famous Chesil Beach, this 'Gibraltar of the Channel' first became a holiday venue with King George III and Queen Charlotte who made annual visits, "to delight in the different beauties of this romantic spot".

Stone from the Island has provided material for most of London's famous landmarks. Old quarries, beautifully reclaimed by nature, provide a maze of footpaths.

Explore by foot or horseback and discover the secrets of this rural paradise. Find a sculpture park, fossil trees, cave shelters, tunnels, rare flowers, rare birds and a myriad of butterflies - just a few of Portland's 'treasures'. Spectacular cliff walks give panoramic views of Dorset's Heritage Coastline.

A rich maritime history is revealed by a harbour guarded by twin Tudor Castles and the Verne Citadel. From the comfort of your holiday home you can watch fishing while boats and ferries ply their daily trade, or glimpse the sleek, grey shadows of naval ships on the horizon.

Cove Park, nestling in the former gardens of the Pennsylvania Castle, is situated in the lee of the island. This suntrap cove is ideal for safe bathing.

Come to the island of Portland, an idyllic, unspoilt rural haven, to recapture a style of life little changed from the last century.

All our caravans are located to get the best of the sea views. A footpath provides easy access through grassy slopes, rich in rare flowers, to the sun-trap Church Ope Cove. See the ruined Church with Smugglers graveyard. Adjacent Car Park and plenty of room for sunbathing.
