    “We had a pleasant stay in Ammonite Cottage.”

    Good location to explore the Jurassic Coast from; the cottage is almost on the South-West Coast Path and all the Jurassic Coast landmarks are within an hour's drive. The cottage was well-kept and small but cosy. Good to know that the WiFi doesn't work properly. We also noticed the dampness, especially on the first floor. Our pillows remained damp all the time and clothes didn't dry properly. No signs of mould, though, and there is a good ventilation system. The beds are excellent. The property provides you with all kinds of utensils (very convenient!). Do bring your own laundry detergent, dishwasher tablets and cooking oil. We enjoyed eating at the Cove House Inn (do make a reservation; it is popular) and The Little Ship, both just a stone's throw away. Our kids love to go crabbing. A good place to do that is on the Stone Pier in Weymouth (next to Nothe Castle). Just borrow crabbing gear from the Stone Pier Café (they are super friendly there, and have good cake) and find a spot on the pier (just walk back to the town centre on the pier - you can give it a go before and after the rowing centre).

    Thank you for your lovely review; it sounds like you had a fantastic time! Turning off and on again usually does the trick for any WiFi problems. A new fan installed in the bathroom is really freshening things up. We are glad you enjoyed the Cove House; there is no better way to enjoy a Summer evening than watching the sunset from the Cove House, with a drink in hand! Property Owner

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.

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.
Note: Due to the unique location of Ammonite Cottage on the Isle of Portland, it is accessed via a pedestrian walkway with vehicle access for drop off and pickup.
