Wakeham is a small hamlet situated in a conservation area on the eastern side of the rugged ‘Isle’ of Portland above the beach at Church Ope Cove. The wide road running through the centre was constructed to accommodate the transport of Portland Stone by horse drawn carts from the numerous local quarries. You can learn all about the stone quarrying at a fascinating exhibition within the local Portland Museum, and then explore the nearby coastal path, a steep walk down to the cove, passing the ruins of the Grade I listed Rufus Castle and St Andrew’s Church along the way.

Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.

Tree Tops is a beautiful cottage, really well equipped and deceptively spacious. The location is wonderful too. Highly recommended.

The cottage itself is beautiful and really well equipped. The layout is unusual - originally two small cottages that are now linked - but the space is deceptive. From the photos we were expecting something much smaller (it's usually the other way around) and actually there was more than enough space for our family of four. We had a spare room and plenty of communal space. Comfortable beds, all mod cons, good shower (always a plus), tastefully decorated in keeping with the age of the building. This was a really lovely place to stay. Having the beautiful garden was a bonus too. There are sea views from the rooms at the top, and also from the bottom of the garden. The location is also wonderful, it's a short but steep walk down to the cove and there are nice walks in both directions along the cliff path. Highly recommended.
