  • "We really enjoyed our stay - it was a great apartment, comfortable beds and everything we needed was supplied."

    My granddaughter was doing a week long course at the Sailing Academy and this was an ideal location with wonderful views - shame about the weather as the views would have been even better but it was February! It was good to be able to use the pool and all the staff I had communication with were really helpful and friendly. Many thanks !

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the feedback. You must return in summer when the sun shines. It’s beautiful. Chris & Anne. Property Owner

The property

Sunset View, a splendid fifth-floor apartment is situated on the fringes of Castletown in Portland, Dorset.

Boasting direct sea views and overlooking Portland Castle which situated on the edge of the water, this fantastic position is close to a wide range of services, the beach, and the marina.

As well as a contemporary interior, a private balcony and reserved parking, Sunset View makes for the perfect home base for a seaside getaway.

Prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen, dine in as a four-person party, and unwind on the stylish sofa while looking out at the coastal vistas; alternatively, take advantage of the private balcony to fully appreciate your surroundings, enjoy alfresco dining, unwinding for the evening with a cold glass of wine in your hand whilst admiring the amazing sunsets.

When sleep calls, choose between two double bedrooms, both with direct access to the balcony, with the master enjoying its own en-suite shower room, ideal for winding down at the end of a long day.

Completing the property is a sleek family bathroom, where you can soak your tired legs with a soak in the tub or enjoy a revitalising shower.

Get up early to explore the marina, stock up on the essentials, or have breakfast at the well-known eatery The Kitchen at Portland Marina.

Visit the D-Day Museum which is a popular attraction in Castletown, just a 5 minute walk away or continue walking to enjoy the 18-mile stretch of Chesil Beach, which is also a haven for water sports and wildlife viewing.

The Cove House Inn on Chesil Beach is a 15 minute walk away where you can sit outside and revel in the spectacular views whilst enjoying an evening meal.

If you'd rather spend the day having fun, head to Weymouth and its shoreline of attractions, which include the Weymouth Museum, Alexandra Gardens amusement park, Nothe Fort, RSPB Radipole Lake, and SEA LIFE Centre Weymouth.

The county seat of Dorchester, which is also home to other attractions, can be reached by travelling via the Dorset AONB.

Here, you can brush up on your local knowledge at the Dorset Museum or explore the Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens before coming home for sundowners.

Enjoy all of this and more with a stay at Sunset View.

About the location


Portland 1.3 miles; Weymouth 6.2 miles; Dorchester 12.8 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: Access via lift to the fifth floor however this should not be solely relied upon in case there is a maintenance issue and the stairs must be used.
Please Note: Leisure facilities are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9-4 and Wednesday 11-4.
