Tree Tops

This unusual and quirky Portland stone cottage can be found quietly situated down a narrow lane, just off the main street of the hamlet of Wakeham, on the eastern side of the rugged Isle of Portland on Dorset’s dramatic Jurassic Coast. Constructed over three floors, the cottage was imaginatively created from two former quarryman’s cottages believed to date back to 1650, which now results in a cottage which provides a most unusual holiday experience! On the ground floor you can find a glazed garden room, complete with grape vine, leading into the kitchen/diner and a double bedroom both with woodburning stoves, then choose between two staircases which rise up to the first floor bedrooms and bathroom. Take the narrow staircase up to the top floor where you will find a bright sitting room with windows across one side offering views through a wooded glade out to sea. These views are also enjoyed by guests using the master bedroom which adjoins the sitting room. Outside, there’s an enclosed and sheltered garden with a pleasant sitting area where you can dine alfresco. Take the adjacent path down through the arch beside the ruins of Rufus Castle down the steep path to nearby Church Ope Cove, taking in the stunning coastal views along the way. This really is a special and very different coastal holiday destination, providing you with an unforgettable Dorset holiday experience!
