  • “The cottage was always warm and plenty hot water.”

    Was disappointed in kitchen equipment. No caffatiere, tea pot, oven gloves, lack of cupboard space for our food and no lid on the bin which isn’t helpful when you have a dog. The bedroom really needs a bigger chest of drawers as the one provided is really only big enough for underwear and there was no where else to put clothes. A few little extras would lift this property from ok to good

FORTUNESWELL

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!
