  • "I stayed here with my family to celebrate my 50th birthday and it didn't disappoint Its a beautiful home - thank you for letting us stay in it!"

    it was beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated with everything we needed to cater for a large family celebration. The only thing I would perhaps say is that the smaller of the two sofas is really uncomfortable (looks very pretty though) Also, don't expect to park outside the property - unless you arrive during day time hours (mon-fri) This wasn't a major problem as we always managed to find a space further up the road, as long as you don't mind a walk - worth bearing in mind if you have lots of bags to unpack! The location was great with some lovely walks nearby - the mariner is lovely as is the beach and tout quarry park...Lots of hills though which will keep you fit! Thank you again

The property

Perched in the quaint village of Fortuneswell in Dorset, is this wonderful six-bedroom mid-terrace house, The Chesil Lookout.

Enjoying a superb location along Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast on the Isle of Portland and a spacious interior with contemporary furnishings, The Chesil Lookout makes for a fabulous dwelling for a group or large family of 12 who are looking for their next adventure to Dorset.

Look forward to impressing your guests with your culinary skills in the well-equipped kitchen, which also hosts a handy dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer for keeping your space tidy!

Gather around the dining table for 12 to savour a delicious meal, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

After a hearty meal, retire to the sitting room where you can snuggle up on the plush seating and select your favourite film from the TV.

Pour in the bubbles and indulge in a soothing soak in the bath with your favourite book, before preparing to catch your rest in one of six well-appointed bedrooms, three doubles, a twin and two bunk rooms, ensuring flexible sleeping arrangements for all parties.

Wake-up with a steaming hot cup of coffee, before enjoying a refreshing rinse in the shower and heading out for the day to explore.

Take your pick from the excellent selection of eateries on offer, including the welcoming pubs of Britannia Inn and The Cove House Inn for when you feel like dining out, or for those evenings where you don’t feel like venturing out, why not order in from Ocean Bay or Chesil Chippy to enjoy in the comfort of The Chesil Lookout.

Head straight for the glorious sands of Chesil Beach, where you can paddle the shores, bathe on the sands or beachcombe the shores.

The budding historians in your party will delight at the surrounding attractions of the 16th-century Portland Castle which features a heritage garden and tearooms, the Castletown D-Day Centre & Museum and the fascinating remains of Rufus Castle.

Walking enthusiasts will be pleased at the close proximity of the South West Coast Path which offers some of the most breath-taking views in the area, as well as ensuring you don’t miss out on any of the attractions in the area.

For a fun-filled day out with loved ones, head over to Weymouth, where you can wander the bustling pier filled with attractions and food stalls, spend a couple of hours relaxing at the popular beach, meet the local marine life at the Sea Life Centre, bird watch at the RSPB Radipole Lake or challenge your party to a round of pirate miniature golf.

For a memorable getaway to Dorset, secure your stay at The Chesil Lookout.
