Malthouse Meadow

Discover Malthouse Meadow, a development of just twenty-two houses in Portesham - an attractive and desirable village. 


Portesham is situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and just a few miles inland from the World Heritage Jurassic coast and famous Chesil Beach. This pretty village features a stream running through it, with its own resident ducks and geese on the pond! Portesham has a vibrant and sociable community offering regular events, clubs and activities at the modern village hall. There are numerous village facilities including a pretty Anglican Church, great local pub, well-stocked farm shop, a thriving primary school, a popular medical centre and ‘pop-up’ Post Office. Buses run through the village to Weymouth and Bridport and beyond. There are fantastic access points to Jurassic coastal walks, including to the nearby village of Abbotsbury famous for its stone cottages and local amenities including village stores, the Swannery and St Catherine's Chapel.


The village is ideally situated approximately 7 miles southwest of the county town of Dorchester and 7 miles west of the seaside town of Weymouth. Both towns have train links to London Waterloo. The county town of Dorchester has a great selection of both independent and national retailers, well-regarded schools, choice of cinemas and restaurants and a couple of museums, whilst the seaside town of Weymouth again boasts great shopping and has an award winning sandy beach, marina and picturesque old harbour.
