    “Lovely little clean and tidy cottage which was fine for our needs.”

    Its located within walking distance of takeaways and the local pub restaurants. But with the co-op and a few other shops quite a hilly trek away. ...

    Its located within walking distance of takeaways and the local pub restaurants. But with the co-op and a few other shops quite a hilly trek away. The cottage itself is on three floors with a lounge exactly as shown in the photos. The kitchen diner is well appointed and has all you need to self cater. There's a small yard out back with steep steps to a waste land area which was good for a last thing/first thing visit for the dogs. The cottage was warm and cosy with decent central heating, there's also a fireplace in the lounge with a log burner if that's your thing. There's no WiFi (as stated) and mobile reception isn't great on the ground floor but it's much better higher up. I used my phone as a hotspot for the kids as I have unlimited data. TV and DVD player is there but there's no decent films so take your own if you like to watch a movie at night. The furnishings are comfy enough to spend time in. Parking is available outside, we took two cars and managed to get a space for both, just not always the same one. The location was perfect for us and we would stay again.

The property

Situated behind the sea wall and just a minute or so from the beach, Neptune Cottage is a delightful terraced fisherman's cottage dating back 200 years but now made a modern holiday home.

Located in the popular Chiswell area of Portland it is ideally located for water sports enthusiasts; the National Sailing Academy as well as diving and windsurfing facilities are nearby.

There are wetsuit drying hooks and hose conveniently in the property. With its character features blended with contemporary interior furnishings, together with its beachside location, Neptune Cottage is a popular choice.

With accommodation over three floors you have everything you need for a family’s or a group of friends stay.

The bedrooms are located on the first and second floors with comfortable ground floor shower room and spacious first floor bathroom.

Wooden beds and furniture throughout with green accents make it an attractive holiday home. As the property doesn’t have WiFi service, you can relax and dive into your holiday and forget about daily routine.

There are so many different activities for you to choose from! The spectacular Chesil beach, which is dog friendly, stretches for miles and is literally behind the cottage, and can be accessed in seconds.

You can walk on top of the bank towards Chesil Beach visitor centre where you can find out more about Dorset wildlife. As well as enjoying the sun and views on the beach, if you are a keen fisherman (or lady) you may try and catch your tea.

Alternatively, you may partake of a meal and drink at the adjacent Cove Inn which has a terrace overlooking the beach or Quiddles, just along the esplanade which serves fresh seafood.

Try a walk along the South West coastal path from here which in its entirety is 630 miles long.

One of the sections goes around the rugged landscape of the Isle of Portland with three lighthouses, XIII century church ruins, Rufus castle, Portland Harbour and more.

Returning to Neptune Cottage you have a variety of takeaways, pubs and restaurants including the acclaimed Blue Fish Cafe within a few minutes’ walk.

Local shops are also conveniently located a ten-minute stroll away.

Neptune Cottage is a lovely holiday home for families and water sports enthusiasts.

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!
