I’ve discovered the best scones ever!


The lighthouse in Portland Bill Hi,

I trust you had a great weekend… they go so quickly don't they?

On my recent holiday I think I've discovered the finest scones ever!

I often visit Portland in Dorset, it's just next door to Weymouth and you reach it by road which literally takes you out to sea! It's a fabulous place and well worth a visit. If you ever visit, make sure you head to Portland Bill where you'll find the famous lighthouse, beautiful rugged coastline and crashing waves.

Whenever I visit family in Yeovil we always take a day trip to Portland not only for the lovely sea views and fresh air but to sample some of the finest scones ever! Am I exaggerating? I don't think I am! 

Scone Next door to the lighthouse is 'The Lobster Pot' which serves great food from tasty sandwiches to fish and chips along with their homemade scones… served warm!  We've even been known to take some more home with us they're that good! Take a look for yourselves (I had some strange looks when taking the photo of my scone).

I've got a pretty busy week lined up on QVC with one show I'm especially looking forward too – Charlie Bears, this Sunday evening from midnight with a very special Charlie Bears TSV. That's this Sunday from midnight and one word springs to mind… adorable!

Take care and see you soon

Charlie x

    Hi Charlie!
    I’ve often heard you mention that you visit Portland Bill and Chesil beach. I’m in Dorchester so not far away and obviously have visited Portland several times and know the Lobster Pot – my aunt goes there too! From Weymouth take a drive along the stunning coast road (which has great views) and stop off in the picturesque village of Abbotsbury (visit the Swannery and sub-tropical gardens – children are allowed to join in with feeding the swans at feeding time) and take time to walk up the hill to St. Catherine’s Chapel for more great views. Drive further and stop off at the Hive beach at Burton Bradstock for a walk under the cliffs and lunch at the Hive beach cafe! Or drop in for a cup of tea in Dorchester – I can’t promise you a homemade scone though!
