    “We enjoyed our stay in Portland.”

    Our only criticism was that the key safe was very tricky to reach because the plants alongside the very narrow path were overgrown. Also the key was for a different door from that described in the instructions.

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.
