The property

Fisherman's Cottage, King Street is a lovely semi-detached cottage with amazing sea views, resting in the coastal village of Fortuneswell, Portland near Weymouth in Dorset.

With attractions including World Heritage site of Chesil Beach nearby, this pet-friendly cottage is ideal for friends and family looking for a getaway to the Jurassic coasts of Dorset & Devon.

The kitchen is incredibly well equipped with a Smeg cooker and Bosch appliances.

In autumn and winter, hearty meals can be enjoyed at the dining table, before you cosy up on the old leather sofa and chairs and catch up with a good book or play some board games, as the woodburning stove warms your feet.

When sleep calls, freshen up in the ground-floor shower room, before catching your rest in either a well-presented double or a twin bedroom.

Outside, make the most of the sunshine by dining alfresco in the enclosed decked space which is a sun trap.

With magnificent sea views; Portland is in fact the second sunniest place in England!

When you are ready to explore, head out into the seaside village of Fortuneswell, where you will find a supermarket within 100 metres for all of your essentials, as well as a selection of pubs and eateries, with options including The Cove House Inn, The Flat Café, and Quiddles Café.

And of course, don’t forget Salty Towers, the local award winning fish and chip shop just 20 metres away.

For a more special meal try the Crab Shack which is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive, with food all sourced locally.

The property is close to the impressive Chesil Beach, ideal for walking and watersports options are incredible at Portland Harbour, what with it being the home of the London Olympics sailing events.

Weymouth, a 10 minute car journey or bus ride away, is famous for its Georgian harbour, and restaurants, and the beach has recently been voted the best in the UK.

You can also visit Dorchester, 30 minutes away, where you will find a wide range of shops and amenities as you might expect from the County town.

It’s also the home of Maiden Castle, the UK’s largest hill fort.

Perhaps Portland’s (and Dorset’s) crowning glory are the walks.

It’s a rambler’s paradise with routes ranging from easy and flat along Chesil Beach to Weymouth or to Portland Bill or for the fitter, more demanding walks over to heritage sites like Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Throw in some fossil hunting and you can see why Portland is the start of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, so why not lace up your walking boots and enjoy a picturesque hike?

There is so much to be explored with a stay at Fisherman's Cottage, King Street.
