Everyday is Breakfast in bed day

Our Hidden gem of Portland & the surrounding area

The beautiful Isle of Portland is 5 miles south of Weymouth, the most Southern point of Dorset. It's an outdoor adventurer's dream; with rock climbing, coastal walks, watersports, caves, hidden beaches & historical sites to explore.  The Island has a quirky feel with lots of art installations and regular art exhibitions alongside B-side Festival.  We have plenty of pure clean Dorset air to make you sleepy.  

There are breath taking views from the many coastal paths, hidden coves and pebble beaches. Lots of climbing spots. Amazing sunrise can be seen at Church Ope cove; a short walk from our Guest house.

The best sunset can be experienced at Chesil Beach, so why not enjoy fish & chips (or Vegan fish) from our favourite Chesil Chippie and watch the sun go down.  

Thirtyfive is located in Easton with local amenities close by; the bus stop is right outside our door.  Large supermarket, Independent shops, cafes, real ale pubs and 4 takeaways right on our doorstep. 

It is the perfect base for exploring the Jurassic coast, surrounding areas of Dorset and only 10 minutes drive takes you to Weymouth town. 

Local Points of Interest

Church Ope Cove

Beautiful secluded pebble beach located 10 minutes walk from us. Rejuvenate the soul with a sunrise swim and then head back for your delicious breakfast hamper waiting at your door.  

You can stroll along the coastal path & down the many steps to this beautiful cove; or take the woodland trail down to the Church ruins and Pirate's Graveyard.

Portland Bill Lighthouse

The famous Portland Bill lighthouse was built in 1906, stands 35m high and has been keeping shipping safe along this stretch of the Dorset Coast. It is still in working order but is now fully automatic. Climb to the top of the Lighthouse or take a Guided tour subject to opening times. 

Bring out your inner child and climb the rocks, the brave might even attempt the climb to the top of Pulpit Rock.  Afterwards take a break and enjoy a delicious Dorset cream tea or ice cream at the café.   

It is just a 5 minute drive or you can jump on the seasonal open top bus (runs during Summer holidays) to enjoy the view.

Portland Castle

Portland Castle, also known as one of the Device Forts, or Henrician Castles, was built in this location to defend Weymouth against the threat of attack. The Castle was built circa 1540, of Ashlar stone, the finest Portland Stone available, which perhaps contributes to the excellent condition that the Castle has maintained during the past four and a half centuries.  Portland castle is open all year round and there is lovely onsite café serving homemade delights.  Afterwards take a stroll along the Marina with stunning sea views of Portland Harbour and beyond.

Local Activities

Portland Stone experience, Tout Quarry Sculpture Park, Coastal Paths

On Portland there is a wealth of footpaths to help you explore the island's unique character and beauty.  Portland has lots of fascinating coastal paths where you can explore hidden coves or walk the Merchant railway in the footsteps of the quarrymen and their wagons of stone. Search for the 'falling man' at Tout Quarry Sculpture Park.  It's a great way to spend an hour or two, searching for the sculptures and soaking in the breath taking views of Chesil Beach.  

Windsurfing, Sailing & SUP

Portland harbour has been a Mecca for windsurfers and sailing for many years. Portland Harbour & Marina hosted the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing competitions. The excellent sailing waters of Weymouth and Portland are some of the most beautiful and safe waters in the UK. Book lessons at Andrew Simpson Sailing and windsurfing at OTC, both located at Portland National Sailing Academy. Or why not take a stroll to Hamm Beach and hire a kayak or paddle board.

B-side Festival

b-side is an internationally recognised and locally loved arts organisation that both embodies and enriches its place of origin - the Isle of Portland in Dorset.


The next Festival takes place in September 2020. 

This island is the beating heart that inspires b-side’s work. 

They work with and commission artists who are as excited by the bigger picture as the smallest detail. Using Portland as a microcosm to explore relationships to and with land, artists create unique and inventive projects inspired by the themes of ‘people’ and ‘place’.
