Friday 12th to Sunday 14th November
Heights Hotel, Isle of Portland, Dorset

We spent a fanstastic time at this lovely 3 star hotel set at the heart of the World Heritage Coastline on the summit of the Isle of Portland, Dorset. With stunning panoramic views over Chesil Beach, Weymouth, Lyme Bay and Portland Harbour. 

This was our Christmas themed weekend which gave our girls the opportunity to get those albums they wanted to give as presents finished or to catch up on other scrapbooking projects.

Saturday was our 'Christmas Day' which we celebrated with the first raffle draw, a surprise visitor and a Christmas Meal.
