  • Mr Dutton

    “The cottage was great.”

    Had everything needed and was very cozy. Short drive to most places of interest. Pebble beach 5 min walk with coastal walks. An excellent base to enjoy your holiday.

The property

Resting in the seaside village of Fortuneswell, on the Isle of Portland in Dorset, is this charming semi-detached Victorian cottage.

Renovated to a high standard, this property combines the very best of contemporary living whilst still retaining some of its original features.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to a quaint sitting room with a original stone chimney breast, housing a flame effect gas fire for that added bit of warmth during those chillier months.

Cosy up with your loved ones and unwind in front of the TV.

Pull out the dining table and enjoy a meal together, whilst sharing stories of your holiday so far.

The compact kitchen rests in the rear and has all the necessary appliances to cook up some delicious meals, or a hearty breakfast before starting your day.

You can find a shower room on the ground floor with deluxe fixtures and fittings so you can enjoy a warm shower at the end of a tiring day.

The first floor provides two bedrooms, set up as a double and a single with a pull-out bed for any extra guests wishing to stay here.

The bedrooms come with a selection of antique furniture for storage purposes and delightful French beds, adding a wealth of character.

Settled in the village of Fortuneswell, you can access some lovely traditional pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening, or pick up some last-minute ingredients from the local supermarket for an evening meal.

Discover a wealth of nearby cafés for a spot of lunch or getting some local produce.

A stone's throw away is the lovely sandy beach which stretches a few miles in length and is the perfect spot for topping up that summer tan, enjoying a relaxing swim or learn a new skill and get involved with some surfing.

The beautiful Jurassic Coastline is right on your doorstep and makes for an excellent exploration spot with some of the most stunning views imaginable.

Venture into the bustling seaside town of Weymouth, home to a large number of popular tourist attractions.

The local marina is an excellent opportunity for some watersports, particularly fishing and boating.

Other popular attractions include Chesil Beach, Weymouth Beach and much more.

Boatswain's Watch is the perfect place to stay in order to access many of Dorset’s finest sights.

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!
