Dorset's Jurassic Coast might seem a little tempestuous this time of year—but not when you're cosied up in the warm embrace of a cliff-top hotel. Seek out safe and friendly sanctuary courtesy of this Winter Warmer Escape to The Venue Hotel in Portland.

Snuggle down for a two-night stay for two people at the cliff-top site, with its breathtaking views of the world famous Jurassic Coast for £179 (up to a £393.50 value). You'll quickly take a shine to your chic Standard Double Room, with its comfy king-size bed, en suite with bath and shower, and flat-screen digital TV—but we predict it's the included passes to the well-appointed spa that will really make your face light up. So you can stay tucked up in your toasty bed a little longer we've included a late 12 p.m. checkout.

You'll be lured away each morning by the call of breakfast at The Cliff Panoramic Restaurant, where you'll find spectacular views and a hearty full English and/or Continental breakfast. To immerse yourselves fully in the festive spirit there is a three-course dinner on your first evening. Sample delicious mains such as fillet of West Country beef, braised shin fritter, button onion, and chestnut mushroom cream sauce. Finish with iced praline parfait in milk chocolate, hazelnut crunch, and salt caramel. Return on the second evening to dine on two courses from the à la carte menu and you'll receive a complimentary bottle of wine to share.

Come afternoon, wrap up warm and don't allow the rest of the island sail past you. There's the trio of lighthouses, including The Old Higher Lighthouse, The Lower Lighthouse—now a bird observatory—and of course, the fully functional Portland Bill. Portland is known for many things: as part of UNESCO World Heritage Site the Jurassic Coast, and for being technically an island, since it's only connected to Weymouth by a tombolo.

This Escape is for two adults. Guests can upgrade to a Sea View Room for just £20 to really benefit from the hotel's enviable cliff-top location. There is seven-day availability on this Escape.

  • "[A] glorious stretch of crumbling coastline along the county’s southern edge."
