Garden: stone-paved patio facing eastwards, lawns, wildlife (unfenced) pond, lower lawn with fruit trees. Stone path to end garden formerly used for vegetables.There is also a stone building / workshop (solar panels on roof) which is unavailable because of insurance issues.

Full drying facilities useful for the sometimes quite exciting, stormy winter days. ('Welcome Home' is not painted on the house! It is to show which house it is!)

Vicinato

Descrizione del vicinato e dei paraggi

My end-terrace, part-modernised, Victorian, cottage is in the seaside village of Southwell on the Isle of Portland, in the county of Dorset, England, UK. We are situated on the UNESCO World Heritage Site 'Jurassic Coast'. This is a very friendly, and particularly safe environment - (the Isle of Portland had only three reported incidents of personal robbery between May 2017 and April 2018, 0.21% of crime). The village is mostly quiet, except for summer weekends, when we get quite a few passing holiday makers - mainly walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists and people on their way to see the nearby lighthouses. We enjoy a peaceful, relaxed way of life in one of the mildest and sunniest parts of Britain. Southwell has a good restaurant and pub almost opposite the cottage. We have a church as well, and are two miles from the village of Easton where one finds, supermarkets, a health centre, pharmacy and all the amenities you are likely to need on a day-to-day basis. The Isle of Portland is seven miles from the popular holiday resort of Weymouth with a beautiful sandy beach. We have buses from our village to Weymouth approximately every ten minutes in the daytime. It is possible to take a direct train to from Weymouth to London, some three hours away. Finally; Please be sure to see this stunning feature video about Portland by local historian Stuart Morris. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMWiVrvHQAIBj2G2e607utw There is unrestricted parking in our road (my blue VW car is in the photo in front of my house). I will provide an information pack about the house facilities and the neighbouhood for you to check out on arrival.

Preferenze

Cosa ci piace, cosa non gradiamo… Ecco le regole in casa nostra.

No smoking whatsoever please. I have a history of asthma and am extremely uncomfortable in smoking environments. I have room to accommodate one well-behaved child! Please notice however that there is a quite deep, unfenced pond in the garden.
