    “We were very happy with the cottage and it's location.”

    No complaints at all. The only comment that I would make is that there is no facility for recycling waste at the property. We were able to park daily in the cul-de-sac by the theatre at the top of Coastguard Road.

In Dorset's coastal village of Fortuneswell, you will find the delightful, terraced holiday home of 5 Coastguard Cottage.

Chiswell Beach and local facilities are just a short walk away, making 5 Coastguard Cottage an ideal romantic escape for a couple looking for a seaside getaway.

In the stylish kitchen, prepare delectable meals for two, ready to be savoured over a celebratory bottle of fizz at the dining table for two.

After dinner, step outdoors to the back garden to enjoy a drink and take in the fresh sea air and sea views.

Make your way to the living room, where can curl up with a good book or choose a favourite show from the television as the evening’s entertainment.

After an adventure filled day, follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you can drift off in the sumptuous king size bed.

In the morning, prepare for the day ahead with a hot shower followed by a steaming cup of coffee in the conservatory as you plan the days itinerary.

To get you ready for the day, get a hearty breakfast at The Flat Café, then travel to Chiswell for a day of sunbathing and paddling.

You'll also find a fish and chip shop here, as well as the well-known Cove House Inn and Quiddles.

About the location


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!
