    “The cottage met all of our requirements, and more.”

    Absolutely lovely little cottage, very cosy, clean and comfortable. Well positioned in one of our favourite places, with plenty of amenities nearby.

    Absolutely lovely little cottage, very cosy, clean and comfortable. Well positioned in one of our favourite places, with plenty of amenities nearby. We especially liked the balcony, which was a real suntrap, even in October! Definitely one we will return to...

The property

A cute traditional Portland stone cottage that has been beautifully refurbished to offer a bright comfortable cottage from which to base your Dorset Holiday.

The lovely bright, welcoming sitting/dining room invites you to sit and relax, enjoy the coal effect fire as you let your holiday envelop you.

The kitchen is the perfect cottage kitchen for planning a tasty meal.

The master bedroom bright and comfortable and the twin room is perfect for the children to dream of the sea.

Just a few minutes' stroll from Chesil Cove, the property is ideally located for you to explore all that the Isle of Portland has to offer.

You are perfectly situated to venture further afield along the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline by picking up the south west coast path on the doorstep.

To the west you'll find West Bay, Bridport and Charmouth and to the East, Weymouth, with it’s fine golden sanded beach and shallow waters, Durdle Door, Lulworth and Corfe Castle.

Within easy walking of Ammonite Cottage you will find lovely restaurants serving local seafood, amongst them, both Quiddles and The Cove House Inn.

If you want to enjoy spectacular views, follow the coastal path to the top of Portland where on a clear day you can gather views towards Exmouth and beyond.

Sunsets viewed from Chesil beach or even the top of Portland are not to be missed.

This is the perfect holiday cottage for a small family or a small group of friends.

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!

Note: Sorry no pets.
