  • "On arrival you could tell someone had been smoking previously in the property when letting our dogs out into the garden there were several cigarette butts in a container ."

    The blind in the master bedroom had several marks on it (black out blinds would be better) and the mattress is extremely thin and uncomfortable. A used towel was in the side unit in the twin room .These concerns were raised via a phone call to the number in the folder and would be address on change over day .It is on a very steep hill and on the 1st night did park outside the property it is tight as mentioned ,after that we decided to park at either top or bottom of road .We felt disappointed as it didn't have a homely feel to it , we have stayed in a few cottages over the last few years and never felt this before ,

    Thanks for the feedback Lisa. Much appreciated. Sorry you felt it wasn’t homely although others have said otherwise. Leaving a used towel is poor and I will tell the cleaners to do better. Smoking is not allowed and I’m sorry this impacted your stay. I hope you liked Portland in general. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was fabulous and so well equipped."

    There were some really lovely touches for our arrival and we thought the "dog box" was such a lovely thought. We stayed with our two dogs and they were made to feel very welcome - the enclosed area at the back is perfect for the dogs with some great views. The cottage was so comfortable with lovely bedding, towels and a great walk in shower. Portland is a great place to stay for easy access to other places in Dorset and we found the locals very friendly. Highly recommended for a dog friendly stay and many thanks to the owners for their kindness and thoughtfulness

The property

Fisherman's Cottage, King Street is a lovely semi-detached cottage with amazing sea views, resting in the coastal village of Fortuneswell, Portland near Weymouth in Dorset.

With attractions including World Heritage site of Chesil Beach nearby, this pet-friendly cottage is ideal for friends and family looking for a getaway to the Jurassic coasts of Dorset & Devon.

The kitchen is incredibly well equipped with a Smeg cooker and Bosch appliances.

In autumn and winter, hearty meals can be enjoyed at the dining table, before you cosy up on the old leather sofa and chairs and catch up with a good book or play some board games, as the woodburning stove warms your feet.

When sleep calls, freshen up in the ground-floor shower room, before catching your rest in either a well-presented double or a twin bedroom.

Outside, make the most of the sunshine by dining alfresco in the enclosed decked space which is a sun trap.

With magnificent sea views; Portland is in fact the second sunniest place in England!

When you are ready to explore, head out into the seaside village of Fortuneswell, where you will find a supermarket within 100 metres for all of your essentials, as well as a selection of pubs and eateries, with options including The Cove House Inn, The Flat Café, and Quiddles Café.

And of course, don’t forget Salty Towers, the local award winning fish and chip shop just 20 metres away.

For a more special meal try the Crab Shack which is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive, with food all sourced locally.

The property is close to the impressive Chesil Beach, ideal for walking and watersports options are incredible at Portland Harbour, what with it being the home of the London Olympics sailing events.

Weymouth, a 10 minute car journey or bus ride away, is famous for its Georgian harbour, and restaurants, and the beach has recently been voted the best in the UK.

You can also visit Dorchester, 30 minutes away, where you will find a wide range of shops and amenities as you might expect from the County town.

It’s also the home of Maiden Castle, the UK’s largest hill fort.

Perhaps Portland’s (and Dorset’s) crowning glory are the walks.

It’s a rambler’s paradise with routes ranging from easy and flat along Chesil Beach to Weymouth or to Portland Bill or for the fitter, more demanding walks over to heritage sites like Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Throw in some fossil hunting and you can see why Portland is the start of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, so why not lace up your walking boots and enjoy a picturesque hike?

There is so much to be explored with a stay at Fisherman's Cottage, King Street.

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!
