The property

Olympic Village 1 is a magnificent mid-terrace holiday home situated on the coast in Castletown, on the Isle of Portland.

This residential development was originally built to house athletes for the 2012 Olympic Games, sailing events, as the property is just a short walk away from the iconic National Sailing Academy, a firm favourite destination for water sport enthusiasts.

Olympic cottage with two bedrooms on the first floor and spacious living area with well-equipped kitchen and dining area is perfect for couples or small family.Olympic Village 1 is a great place for a family or two couples to stay, thanks to its stylish design throughout and is close to the Dorset AONB's many highlights.

On arrival, you will be greeted with a highly sought-after designated parking space, allowing you to quickly arrive and get settled in.

Make yourself at home in the immaculate open-plan living area, which has elegant sofas and a flatscreen TV.

Continue to  the kitchen, which features high-gloss cabinets and a variety of high-quality appliances for the group's foodie to prepare delectable meals with.  These meals may be served at the adjacent dining table, or out on the enclosed decking in the warmer months!

At the end of the day, head upstairs to one of two fantastic bedrooms, one of which is a double with convenient zip/link beds and a TV, and the other of which is a twin; both of which have plenty of storage for your possessions.

A fabulously fitted shower room completes the first floor, and a cloakroom/utility is also available downstairs for further convenience.

Get acquainted with what  the Isle of Portland has to offer by stopping for a delicious lunch at The Little Shop before heading down to Chesil Beach for an afternoon of fun in the sun; alternatively, visit the historic marvel of Portland Castle and the fascinating Castletown D-Day Museum.

Explore the rest of the rugged isle, where the joys of Little Beach, Fancys Farm, and Pulpit Rock await!

Weymouth is a wonderful town with lots of things to do, such as visiting the great SEA LIFE aquarium, discovering the picturesque location of RSPB Lodmoor, and trekking around Nothe Fort!

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!
