“Lovely well equipped house in a ideal location for Portland and Weymouth”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a lovely 2 week stay at Quarries Reach. The accommodation was ideal for our large family travelling with 3 teenagers and 2 children under 8. The 4 bedrooms were clean, comfortable and laid out very well. The lounge, kitchen and dining rooms were comfy and large enough to cater for us all ( plus we managed to sit 10 round the dining table). The kitchen was very well equipped with everything that we could possibly need.
We were visiting as 2 of our teenagers were sailing at WPNSA for the 2 weeks. The house was only 5-10 minutes drive away and had plenty of off road parking for our 2 cars. The washing machine under the stairs came in very handy too, as did the clothes lines and pegs!
Portland has a very picturesque coastline. The younger children were kept entertained with the lighthouse, castle, Nothe Fort plus we had the bonus of seeing the Red Arrows at Weymouth Carnival and an extra flyby at the Sailing Academy on the last day.
We will definitely stay again when we are next in the area.

“Lovely house, beautiful place”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Had a 2 night stay at quarries reach and loved it. My wife and our two young children were joined by my mum and the house was plenty big enough with four good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and a downstairs loo too! The views from the upstairs windows are fab - Portland really is beautiful. Comfy beds with lovely fresh linen and plenty of towels. Had a really nice little break enjoying the simple pleasures - ice creams, sandcastles and donkey rides in Weymouth, and a couple of nice pubs in Portland too :-)

“Gorgeous house with a stunning view.”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

10 of us stayed for a weekend in this gorgeous house with the most beautiful view of the sea! We fitted comfortably, with lots of bedrooms and a brilliant king-size sofa bed. Every room was immaculate and came with bedding and towels, and the kitchen was well equipped so that we could eat in comfort. We loved having use of the BBQ and enjoyed the sun in a lovely garden too.
The cottage was a short drive to the city, so we managed to get to the beach and out in the evening (with a cheap taxi to the esplanade) and had a wonderful time. Everything went smoothly thanks to the easy check-in and check-out and perfect house.
Thank you so much, we can't wait to come again!

“Six adults had a good spring break in Quarries Reach”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We were a group of six adults and we stayed for 1 week in May.
The house is located on a main residential road leading to Portland Bill which is around a 25 minute walk away. The property was easy to find and there is ample off street parking which is good because parking on the main road is at a premium. The position is ideal for walking and touring Portland and the surrounding area.
On a bus route (route 1 Portland to Weymouth), with stops a couple of minutes away in each direction, you would be well placed if you were relying on public transport. The down side is buses regularly pass the front of the property from 5am till after 2am the following morning. No problem with the front windows closed, may be noisy with the windows open if you are light sleeper.
The house is fairly well equipped:- Ground floor kitchen, dinning room, hall and WC, First floor lounge with Juliet balcony, shower bathroom, bunk bedroom and a double bedroom. Top floor two double bedrooms and a huge bathroom.
The only thing lacking was a second TV somewhere else in the property, we found with a few people in the lounge chatting there was nowhere for a TV addict to view their soaps. With fairly fast 12-15MB broadband available online viewing would be an option so remember your laptop or tablet.
The garden, whilst providing the parking, is of a good size and with patio furniture, al fresco dining was a pleasure.
Heating, hot water, showers and white goods all worked well. The beds and bedding were good quality as were the bath and hand towels.
Best bits: view from front lounge balcony, large kitchen and nice dining room with french windows, garden.
Bad bits: none really unless you are a light sleeper with the windows open, recommend you then pick the back top floor bedroom !

“Excellent cottage!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Quarries Reach is a lovely cottage, the bedrooms are well laid out and spacious, the bed linen is crisp & fresh, the kitchen is well equipped, and it was all very clean and tidy. The flexibility given on booking dates is fantastic - you don't have to book for a full week, and you can start your booking on whatever day of the week you like (as long as it is available). This makes it so much easier when arranging trips as I do regularly for my diving club.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Really enjoyed our stay. Lovely house, extremely well presented. The service was very efficient and we really appreciated being able to take our dog. He had a great time too! The only gripe was the power shower which went hot and cold all the time. However, overall would thoroughly recommend this fab property for a top holiday. Thank you Deborah.
