Amazing house in an amazing location, I cannot rate Portland House highly enough

I stayed at Portland House for a weekend with 22 guests to celebrate my 50th birthday and it was perfect. The whole house is beautifully decorated and every single bedroom is decorated to the same high standard, so all my guests were delighted with their rooms. The bar area was great fun and features the… “Amazing house in an amazing location, I cannot rate Portland House highly enough”

Gorgeous house, great location, perfect for a large group

Our large group stayed at Portland House in June. The owners could not have been helpful or professional. The house has been renovated to a very high standard. The kitchen is very well equiped and the bedrooms and bathrooms are of a very high quality. The sound system on the ground floor was great. We… “Gorgeous house, great location, perfect for a large group”

Absolutely amazing – couldn’t have asked for more for my sister’s hen party!

Where to start…the house is absolutely amazing! The pictures do not give it justice particularly the garden which we spent most of our time. Every detail was brilliant. The bar and speakers were brilliant and meant we could enjoy the weekend at the house without having to go into town at night. The support before… “Absolutely amazing – couldn’t have asked for more for my sister’s hen party!”

The perfect place for a group gathering

We booked Portland House 1870 for a family gathering, over a long weekend. Our ages ranged from 6 weeks to over 70 years. The rooms were perfect for us, comfortable beds, excellent bathrooms. The kitchen and dining facilities were way beyond excellent, and enabled us to eat and drink together as a big family should. I am sure we… “The perfect place for a group gathering”
