Portland - E4829
Why not take a day trip by land, rail or river during your stay at Portland? Enjoy well equipped and relaxing accommodation on your return.. 7 external steps to entrance. All on the ground floor: Living/dining area/kitchen with twin beds. Shower room with toilet.. Electric heaters, electricity and air conditioning included. Fridge/freezer. Parking (1 car). NB: This property does not have a bedroom.. These fabulous apartments, with stunning views across the Exe estuary (Portland has limited views), were once the home of Captain George Peacock born in 1805, a celebrated mariner, inventor and surveyor who invented the first workable screw propeller, devised a way of making drinking water from sea water, and charted the waters and land that would eventually lead to the construction of the Panama canal. Easily accessible by road, rail and water, they sit opposite a small railway station and ferry port to Exmouth’s two miles of golden sands and traditional resort facilities. The fine beach and nature reserve at Dawlish Warren are 2 miles whilst sightseeing and shopping in the cathedral city of Exeter are 7 miles. The surrounding countryside is particularly good for walking and cycling – nearby Haldon Forest is criss-crossed with trails and there is even a cycle track to Exeter from Regent House itself, Exe trail cycleway – and the Exe estuary is great for sailing, windsurfing and all manner of water sports, with tuition for all levels of ability. Powderham Castle is within walking distance, visit the castle, farm shop and check out the events held there including classic car rally, food fayres and concerts. Golf courses are also close by. Floating restaurant at Exmouth is well worth a visit, booking advisable. Guided bird watching cruises are available, river cruises run all year and Jurassic Coast cruises in summer. Some of Devon’s famed resorts – Budleigh Salterton, Seaton and Sidmouth as well as the ‘English Riviera’ resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham – and Dartmoor National Park’s rugged beauty are a little further afield. Shops and a pub serving food are within a 5-minute stroll.. All properties: Bed linen and towels included. Cot. Freeview TV. CD. Microwave. Wi-fi. No smoking.
