  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our two week holiday at Jurassica House again."

    It is a very clean, comfortable and well equipped house, within walking distance of Chesil Beach, marina, cafés, pubs and shops. There are spectacular views of Chesil Beach, Ferry Bridge, Fleet Lagoon and amazing sunsets from the balcony. We are looking forward to returning again later this summer.

The property

A spacious and contemporary-styled holiday property, Jurassica House can be found situated on the beautiful yet rugged Isle of Portland, contributing to our Olympic legacy by being home to the Swedish sailing team during the sailing events in 2012.

A great location for water sports enthusiasts, walkers, cyclists, rock climbing and, of course, perfect for simply relaxing and taking a welcome break from the world, this property is wonderfully suited to a variety of group needs whether you’re visiting with friends or family.

Accommodating up to eight guests over four floors, you can find the four beautiful bedrooms set out across each floor, made up of a ground-floor twin, a first-floor super-king-size, a second-floor twin and a master third-floor super-king-size with its own en-suite shower room, dressing room and balcony overlooking Chesil Beach, this property offers a flexible sleeping arrangement for a variety of individual needs, each room boasting crisp, white linens to unwind under after each day of adventure.

Make the most of the stunning views over the beach from the second-floor sitting room too, with its seascapes extending out across the English Channel, The Fleet and Weymouth Bay, it makes a wonderful spot to watch the sunset of an evening, where you can enjoy a quiet moment reading a book or planning your itinerary for the days ahead.

The property has been furnished to a high standard throughout and the first-floor kitchen/diner is particularly well-stocked with appliances and utensils, making it a real home-from-home for all of your self-catering needs, while the spacious dining area opens up with double doors onto an enclosed garden and patio, perfect for children, where guests can enjoy cooking, eating and relaxing together alfresco-style.

The location of the property is super, with local shops, pubs and restaurants a convenient short stroll away in the village of Fortuneswell, while a wide range of attractions including the beautiful beach being within easy reach too, including the International Marina and the National Sailing Academy and free tennis courts in Victoria Park, just across the road from Jurassica House also being within walking distance.

For active holiday guests, kite surfing, sailing, paddle-boarding, diving and windsurfing are among the water sports available, as well as Castletown being home to the Osprey Leisure Centre, offering an indoor swimming pool, gym, squash courts and other leisure activities, or for those seeking a more leisurely day trip you can find the historic Portland Castle, Castletown Beach and the D-Day Museum.

The Isle of Portland is a walker’s delight with many rare butterflies and birds only seen at this Dorset location, with the top of the isle being home to the iconic red and white striped Portland Bill lighthouse, where you will find a couple of restaurants and cafés serving refreshments, making it a lovely stroll at any time of the year.

The traditional Georgian seaside town of Weymouth can be reached within a scenic drive or you can catch the ferry from Castletown during the summer months, which takes you across the water to the heart of Weymouth Harbour; the glorious golden sandy beach appeals to families with traditional Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides, trampolines and ice cream parlours, while you may also find fine dining with oysters and champagne at the quayside for a more luxurious evening out.

Weymouth offers a range of shops, alongside small independent shops, boutiques and restaurants, as well as brimming with attractions for family fun, such as the Sea Life Park and Marine Sanctuary or take in a show at the Pavilion Theatre.

However you choose to spend your holiday, Jurassica House provides the perfect base for you to explore the island and the wonderful Jurassic Coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Weymouth 5 miles.

Situated on Dorset's spectacular Jurassic Coast, now a World Heritage Site, the village of Fortuneswell can be found on the rugged Isle of Portland peninsula, joined to the mainland via Chesil Beach, a pebble spit, which stretches 18 miles towards West Bay. Formerly a quarrying area, Fortuneswell boasts a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, along with an intriguing maze of streets that wind their way up a steep hill to offer stunning views of the Jurassic Coast and the rolling hills of Dorset beyond. The surrounding countryside is well known as a birdwatcher’s paradise, plus with great walking and climbing opportunities, an array of watersport activities, wonderful sandy beaches, and Weymouth just 5 miles away, this super holiday destination is not to be missed!

Please note that the woodburning stove in the dining room picture is decorative only.
