Isle of Portland, Dorset, England
Seagull Cottage is a lovely holiday house ideal for sailing, beach, and outdoor activity holidays in Portland. It is located just one mile from the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA), the 2012 Olympic Sailing venue. Chesil beach is just a few minutes walk, with swimming and great fishing from the beach. There are sea and roof top views from all the back windows of the cottage. Chesil Cove is the nearest part of Chesil Beach, and is the best place for swimming on the whole beach. The cliff paths are easily accesible from the cottage, offering great walks with breath-taking sea views. There are also plenty of nearby pubs, cafes and restaurants.

About the neighbourhood
We always found the beach a endless entertainment for children in summer.  Chesil cove is pebbles and has rock pools. The water is very clear, and on a warm calm summer day it is a wonderful place to swim.

There is a leisure centre with swimming pool nearby (http://www.ospreyleisure.co.uk/).  There is also a park within five minutes walk which has a children's play area with swings, climbing frames etc.

Weymouth beach is a huge sandy beach which has all the traditional attractions, e.g. Punch and Judy, donkey rides, mini fairground rides, and sand sculptures to see.  There is also the Sea Life adventure park.

It takes about 20 minutes on the bus into Weymouth.  It can be easier to use the bus than finding somewhere to park in Weymouth, as well as being cheaper!  The buses run ever...
