    “Door in bathroom very hard to shut.”

    Gate to get key hard had to climb to get open. Microwave does not work effectively. Fence had hole in it where next door dogs got through.

About the property

Tucked away within the picturesque village of Fortuneswell, is this superbly appointed property, Castle View.

Perched within striking distance to Chesil Beach, as well as historical landmarks and a magnitude of outdoor opportunities, Castle View is the ideal base to come back to of an evening after an action-packed day.

It comes with two brightly-decorated bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each boasting a refreshing interior to wake up to each morning.

On the ground floor you will find an amply equipped kitchen, housing everything you will need to cook up a delicious meal for you and your loved ones.

Lounge around within the sitting room during those chill winter evenings, where you can gather the family for a competitive game of Cluedo or unwind watching a family favourite film.

During the summer months, throw open the patio doors to discover an idyllic patio area where you will be able to soak up the sun whilst tucking into your breakfast or catch the last glimpses of sunshine with a deserved glass of wine.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short stroll will bring you to a superb selection of cafés, restaurants and pubs.

Whilst here, you can spend some time unwinding at the beach which is a superb spot for birdwatching, coastal walks and an array of watersports opportunities.

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!
