Portland, on the Heritage Coast in Dorset, is a great place to discover on a last-minute break. The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games held their sailing events here and it's an ideal location not only for sailing but also angling and diving. The natural landscape and wildlife around Portland is also definitely worth exploring; from Chesil Beach to Portland's Quarries and The Merchants Incline.
Portland Castle and the Lighthouse are also notable landmarks of the town you can't really miss on a day out. There are so many reasons to take a short break to Portland and Last Minute Cottages has a selection of late deals on self-catering accommodation for you to choose from.
