  • “Unicorn cottage is a gorgeous & well appointed cottage, extremely clean & tidy; the owners have literally thought of everything you could need, with luxury toiletries supplied, lovely soft towels, two showers (one in the bathroom & a seperate wet room) plus new washing up sponges, dog treats & milk in the fridge.”

    The beds are really comfortable too.... ...

    The beds are really comfortable too.... The road leading down to the cottage is very steep & narrow, and getting into the parking space a little tricky because of the stone garden walls either side, but we mastered it after a few days. Portland has more or less everything that you need, but bear in mind that the Cove House Inn is really the only decent pub within walking distance of the cottage - at least regarding food, and so of course this pub was pretty much packed every evening. If you want to eat with your dog you have to sit outside at this pub, as they only have two tables where you can sit inside with dogs and you can't reserve these. So we made use of the fish & chip shop & Tesco's in Easton for meal-deals. There are no restaurants in Fortuneswell so you have to drive to Easton for more choice of places to eat.

The property

Unicorn is situated on the Isle of Portland, within sight and sound of the acclaimed Chesil Beach.

A traditional style terraced house, with glimpses of the sea and thoughtfully refurbished by the current owners, this charming holiday cottage has a sunny kitchen sun room and views up to the Olympic Rings on the top of Portland perfect for sitting with your morning coffee and contemplating the day.

After a full day of exploring relax in the spacious and yet cosy sitting room with it’s electric wood burner.

With two showers there won’t be a que in the morning for the bathroom.

Leaving the cottage, walk through the lanes down to the beach and here you may choose to fish, beachcomb or just enjoy the wonderful scenery.

Sunsets from Chesil beach are often spectacular and not to be missed.

Having viewed a glorious sunset then why not try The Cove House Inn or Quiddles, recommended by previous guests for dining, and nestled next to the Chesil beach.

Just a short walk away from Unicorn are a supermarket, pubs and shops and around a 15-minute walk away is The National Sailing Academy, making Unicorn a perfect base for water sports enthusiasts.

To explore Portland take the South West Coastal Path which leads you all around the exterior of the island taking in the rugged landscape, old quarries and famous Portland Bill Lighthouse.

The nearby town of Weymouth, just a short bus or car journey away welcomes guests with a long and sandy beach, traditional beach entertainments and a vibrant town centre.

So you can be assured of an exciting holiday filled with adventures.

Don’t forget Dorchester, the county town is only 14 miles away and if stunning coastal scenes are your desire then you have the Portland to West Bay road for incredible views and places to see.

Unicorn is perfect for a couple, or friends who enjoy walking, or a small family.

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: Guests to provide linen for the cot.
