    “Just returned from a week at Telltales.”

    We had to call Dream Cottages on the first day as the shower was not working. As well as this the upstairs toilet took a long time to fill up so a plumber had to visit the property. Both items were fixed but it was rather inconvenient having to sort this out on holiday.

The property

Resting in a desirably scenic spot from which to explore the rugged beauty of the Isle of Portland, Telltales can be found resting amongst the excitement of Fortuneswell in Dorset.

Originally constructed in the Olympic Village to house athletes of the 2012 sailing events, this holiday let boasts a fantastic social aspect from which to enjoy a memorable escape with friends or family, at any time of year.

Make yourselves at home within the stylish open-plan living space, with plenty of seating, where you can unwind in front of the television, plan your itinerary with your loved ones, or even set up a board game for an evening of family fun.

Carry your conversations to the dining table as you settle down to enjoy a tasty home-cooked meal, the contemporary kitchen offering all you could need for a week-long stay including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washing machine, wonderfully convenient for those longer stays.

Unwind each evening with a soak in the bathtub, the bathroom offering a bath, shower over, basin and WC, providing a stylish spot to prepare for each day of adventure.

Snuggle up beneath the covers of the two inviting bedrooms, taking your pick from a double and a twin room, a lovely layout for a family of four with each room boasting a bright and airy feel with crisp, clean linens.

Head out to the rear enclosed garden to begin your day amidst the fresh coastal breeze with a coffee in hand, before heading out to explore the wonders of the Isle of Portland.

There's plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventure just a short stroll from your doorstep; visit the beautiful Chesil Beach connecting the island to the mainland where you can try out a new water sport or simply soak up the sun for a relaxing day out, ending your evening in one of the many eateries dotted along the waterfront.

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!
