    “Great little property, comfortable, nicely furnished and had everything I needed during my stay.”

    a great base for walking on Portland. wish I'd booked a longer stay.

    a great base for walking on Portland. wish I'd booked a longer stay. worth noting for those staying with their dogs is the enclosed field on the perimeter of this development a few hundred yards from the property.

The cottage

Fortuneswell 0.8 miles.

Officers Retreat was built to house the Olympic sailing event teams for the 2012 Olympics and is part of a modern Eco development, within walking distance of the National Sailing academy, on the Isle of Portland.

This bright and spacious first floor apartment has two lovely balconies, perfect for relaxing after a busy day exploring.

The open-plan living room and dining area is a tranquil place to relax together and plan your day, with patio doors leading out to balcony area.

The bedroom has access to one of the balconies, perfect for sipping your cup of tea in the early morning sun.

There is the added bonus of a downstairs utility room, making this a really special apartment for escaping the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoying the stunning Jurassic Coast.

Enjoy coastal walks, sailing, wind surfing or try kite surfing.

When you have had your fill of outdoor adventures, venture towards one of the many great places to eat, or relax on the esplanade at Chesil Cove with a drink or two, a 3-minute walk from the property.

Weymouth and its golden sandy beach and shallow waters is just a 15-minute drive, or a short ferry ride away.

Enjoy the Georgian seafront and famous harbour.

Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are a 30-minute drive to the East whilst West Bay, Charminster and beyond are a 40-minute drive to the West.

Whatever exploration you fancy doing, Officers Retreat makes the perfect base for couples.

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!
