A new eco-home with views out to sea and a beach hut in the local cove.

Shearwater is a newly built three bedroom house, set over three floors, designed by an award-winning team and located on the east coast of Portland. It offers superb views of Pennsylvania Castle and out to the sea. The property is a highly energy efficient ‘Passivhaus’ eco-home, operating on a low carbon footprint.
The house is well equipped providing all the comforts of home in a contemporary style. The open plan kitchen dining area is situated on the ground floor and a large lounge on the first floor takes advantage of the views out to sea. The largest room in the house is the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom on the top floor with views of the castle and out towards Portland Race. Externally, this property benefits from a furnished patio and its own designated off street car parking space at the rear.
All guests staying at Shearwater will have unlimited use of the new, fully equipped beach hut situated in Church Ope Cove.
Pennsylvania Castle is just a few minutes’ walk and Portland Bill is within a short drive or moderate walk. Church Ope Cove, Portland’s only accessible beach can be accessed by foot although access is via a steep coastal path which may be inaccessible to those with limited mobility. During your stay be sure to take a walk around Portland Marina, with some of the finest small boat sailing waters in Northern Europe. The area is a hive of sailing activity and was the official venue for the Olympic sailing events in 2012. Weymouth’s child friendly beach is a short drive away.
Shearwater especially welcomes children, the property provides a travel cot, high chair, stair gate, children’s cutlery and a selection of children’s games, DVDs and toys.

Historic Reviews

Very relaxing and unspoilt place. Portland Bill Lighthouse very good if you can climb to the top. Chesil Beach but probably go for a meal in the pub Cove House Inn (I think).

Fantastic stay again. Really nice clean house.

The Portland Museum just down the road is well worth a visit. Also, the Tout Quarry sculpture park and the King Barrow Quarry nature reserve, which are both close to the Heights Hotel, from which the restaurant has a great view of Chesil Beach, with decent food and friendly service.

Was a lovely house, had everything we needed. Location was great and the added bonus of the beach hut was great.
Lovely coastal path walks from the front door in both directions, towards Portland Bill and left from the path at the top of Church Ope Cove. The Fish & Chip shop on the main Easton Square was nice and had a lovely meal in the Eight Kingâ’s Pub just a 10/15 mins walk towards Portland Bill.

We visited in tge coldest of February weather, and the traffic was still quite heavy! But this is Dorset!

Thank you for the welcome pack of flowers wine biscuits and milk it was really appreciated.
We were impressed at how clean and well equipped the house was, whilst still feeling homely.
Loved the cove and beach hut.
We had a fantastic break and will be back
