  • "Perfect little get away with my partner and 2 dogs."

    Only issue we had was the nosey rude neighbour 20 seconds after pulling up. And looking for the property details other than that perfect. Maybe have the property name a little bigger and more visible. I.e a plack on the wall instead of the bottom window

    I rented this property for a surprise family get together we had the most amazing time the property was completely immaculate and comfortable the house keeping team went above and beyond to ensure we had all we needed throughout our stay the maintenance team also clearly have everything in hand too would recommend dream cottages to all my family and friends cant wait to return

  • "Enjoyed our stay, very well equipped and comfortable house, ideally situated."

    Would be useful to have the instruction for the washing machine etc in the information folder as we didn’t find them until late in the week. To appeal to older couples it would be nice to have a zip and link kingsize bed in the children’s room that could then be separated if needed. We used the children’s room so we had sole access to the second bathroom as our friends had the en suite.

  • "We had 2 occasions to contact Dream Cottages."

    They were responsive and dealt with the issues raised quickly. One issue, freezer broken, obviously could not be replaced immediately but they brought us a temporary portable freezer. The new fridge freezer was in situ within a couple of days Another issue which has been mentioned on previous reviews is the outside terrace garden. It’s is full of weeds and looks rather unkempt. The isssue, also mentioned before, is Ants which are in abundance in the downstairs areas. Finally it would have been useful to us in the description if we had known that the housing complex was next to an industrial estate.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your recent stay at Pebbles Reach. We appreciate your kind words regarding our responsiveness in addressing the issues you encountered during your stay. Our team strives to provide prompt assistance and we are glad that we were able to quickly address the broken freezer by providing a temporary portable freezer and subsequently replacing it with a new fridge freezer. Regarding the issue of ants in the downstairs areas, we are aware that this has been mentioned in previous reviews. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We are working closely with professional pest control services to address this problem and take appropriate measures to prevent their presence in the future. We appreciate your understanding and patience in this matter. On a recent maintenance inspection there was no sign of any ants so these measures appear to have worked well. The garden isn't a formal garden so the borders do contain a mix of wild flowers. With regard the location - Pebbles Reach is a few moments walk to the stunning Chesil Beach and very close to the National Sailing Academy. As you will be aware Portland is a working commercial harbour so there is an element of business activity. The coastguard is based near by so every now and then helicopters come and go. Many people find them fascinating. The industrial estate I think you may be referring to is about 400m away beyond the playing fields and is home to the lovely Beehive Coffee Shop. Property Owner

    Nothing like pictures 3 toilets but top floor only one what works really garden a mess shower full a limescale worste one ave stopped at well overpriced for what it is

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent stay with us. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and for not meeting your expectations. Our team is investigating these issues. We are also sorry that you feel the property was overpriced, our research shows it to be comparable to similar properties in this location . Your feedback is valuable to us and will be used to make improvements for future guests. Update - The toilet cisterns are fed by the rainwater storage system as the property was constructed to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. As such the feed is at a lower pressure than the rest of the water supply so may take a little longer to refill. We can confirm that all 3 toilets work perfectly as do both showers. We have also reviewed the photographs of the property and they are definitely the correct ones taken after the refurbishment in 2022 and accurately represent Pebbles Reach Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed the stay at the property, but there were a few minor items that were a little disappointing."

    1) Toilet roll provided was minimal, and soon required replenishment. For the amount of money paid, it would be nice to have this provided. 2) There was no brown bin for the food waste, so we contrary to requirements, we had to put food waste in with the general rubbish. 3) Both recycling, bottle and general waste bins were full. We could not fit in our waste. 4) Towards the end of our stay we had an e-mail requesting us to clean the property, however, there were not really any cleaning materials or items that we could use. We did hoover, and left it as clean as possible. Despite these relatively minor items, we enjoyed our few days in the Portland and Weymouth area.

    Beds were very comfortable , fully equipped kitchen with lovely appliances and the house was lovely and warm.

  • "We loved the house it was very spacious and comfortable everything that you’d want on holiday."

    It was nice and quiet in the square. It would have been nice if there was a patch of grass on the terrace garden or artificial turf for the dog but that’s us being a little picky. Lovely walk down to the marina and a couple of places to hang out especially rock the boat. Bowleaze Cove is a great place to go if you’ve got your 4 legged friend with you, it’s all dog friendly and plenty of places to relax for food etc. you’ll find it at the far end of Weymouth at Preston. All in all a great holiday

  • "Excellent well kept property, clean, tidy and ideal for a family stay."

    Part of a complex of similar properties with a good feeling and atmosphere. Close to beach and amenities. My only negative comment would be lack of street lighting in operation at night making the late dog walk a little concerning.

  • "Fantastic property in a great location."

    Perfectly positioned for day trips to the surrounding areas. House was very well equipped, spacious and nicely presented. Would definitely recommend! Our one and only suggestion for improvement would be to put some proper curtains/blackout blind up in the twin room - with children staying in that room, they are extremely likely to wake up with the sunrise!

The property

Tucked away in the village of Fortuneswell is this beautiful, terraced, three-storey house in Dorset, Pebbles Reach.

With Chesil Beach just a stone's throw away, this dog-friendly abode is ideal for families looking for a holiday by the sea, providing off-road parking, an enclosed terrace, and local amenities close by.

Step inside to find a fully equipped kitchen/diner to stock up the cupboards, whip up home-cooked meals, and gather your loved ones around the table for eight.

After sandy beach days, freshen up in the cloakroom/utility with a washing machine, before locating the first-floor sitting room.

Enjoy relaxing in this neutral space with a large corner sofa, Smart TV, and large patio doors bringing in plenty of light and lead to your private first floor terrace.

Why not dine al fresco in this sunny spot with outdoor seating?

However, if you're in need of a quiet escape, take your book and cup of tea to the summerhouse.

You'll also find a twin room on the first floor, a pretty space decorated with children in mind, and the family bathroom finished to a high standard with bath, shower over, and heated towel rail.

The second-floor hosts two more bedrooms, the master double with sea views and an en-suite shower room, and a family room with double, single, and a TV, both with plenty of storage space and beautifully presented.

Fortuneswell is a superb base for your Dorset retreat with pubs and restaurants such as The Cove House Inn overlooking the beach and Chesil Chippie, while you can stock up at the local convenience stores.

The Isle of Portland has plenty to see and do, whether that's discovering local history at Portland Castle and Portland Museum, visiting the animals at Fancys Farm, or embarking on a coastal trek all the way to Portland Bill Lighthouse.

You'll have the glorious Chesil Beach on your doorstep along the West Dorset Heritage Coast for plenty more coastal hikes to see the cliffs of the Jurassic Coast for yourself; why not book a boat trip at Wild Chesil Centre for a chance to see local wildlife?

A great base for touring, be sure to visit the town of Weymouth for swimming and sunbathing along Weymouth Beach, the bustling Weymouth Harbour, and SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth.

RSPB Lodmoor and Radipole Lake are two lovely nature reserves for those hoping to see the local birdlife!

Pebbles Reach offers a memorable staycation in Dorset, all year-round.

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!
