The property

Perched on the coast on the Isle of Portland in Fortuneswell, is this marvellous semi-detached house, The Old Police Station.

A historic, stone-built building, The Old Police Station also boasts panoramic views over the English Channel and is the perfect seaside escape for a group of six.

After parking by the property, pause for a moment and relish those surrounding views of the sea, before continuing into this lovely abode.

The living/room has been designed with relaxation in mind, with its tasteful décor, ample seating, fabulous Smart TV with FreeSat, movie nights will be a breeze; be sure to light the fire during those chilly seasons!

The bright and pleasant kitchen is the perfect spot to explore the foodie in you, with ample appliances available to rustle up delicious dishes.

When it's time to eat, gather your group around the pretty table in the dining room and enjoy a great meal with equally great company; the living/dining room also hosts a smaller dining table for those wanting a quick meal-to-go as they look out at the beach below.

As the day comes to an end, add a touch of luxury to your holiday and soak up in the bathroom's fabulous roll-top bath; an additional cloakroom is close-by for your convenience.

The well-presented bedrooms will leave you feeling spoilt for choice when it comes to relishing a well-deserved rest, choose between a spacious double with an en-suite shower room, an elegant king-size room with pink accents or a vibrant blue twin room adorned with nautical décor.

In the morning, unwind in the enclosed courtyard with a steaming cup of coffee; why not fix up some grilled delights on the handy barbecue for everyone to enjoy?

The property benefits from having its amenities close at-hand, the New Star Inn pub and a convenience store just moments away.

After grabbing your essentials from the shop, spend the day resting on the sands of Portland Beach whilst the kids paddle in the waters, roam through the manicured Victorian Gardens or enjoy an outing to Portland Marina where you can embark on an array of boating tours.

The village of Easton is a stone's throw away and is home to the fabulous Easton Gardens, and is a great starting point for a hike to Blacknor Fort with its breathtaking, clifftop views.

There is so much more of Portland's Jurassic Coast to discover, be sure to learn of the island's culture and history at the Portland Museum, trek along the South West Coastal Path to the scenic points of Rufus Castle and Durdle Pier, and end the day watching the sun set over the sea at John Penn's Bath.

Venture further inland to the bustling towns of Weymouth and Dorchester where ample activities await; if you're looking for more nature-rich attractions, travel into the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or wander along the beautiful West Dorset Heritage Coast.

A blissful beachfront break is waiting for you at The Old Police Station.

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!
