The property

Perched in an elevated position on the idyllic promontory of Portland Bill, Dorset is this historic, detached home, Fisherman’s Cottage.

This 18th-century cottage is ideal for a family holiday or a get-together with friends in a charming coastal location.

Enter the property and begin your holiday; a sun room with seating greets you when entering from the garden, before making your way into the kitchen, where you will find everything you need to whip up tasty dinners or quick picnics to take out with you.

Relax and unwind after dinner as a family at the dining table with a film on the TV as you sink into the plush sofas.

Get some rest upstairs, where three bedrooms provide sleeping quarters for the whole family and a bathroom for preparing for another adventure-filled day.

Wake up with a refreshing shower, either in the bathroom or the en-suite in the master bedroom, before enjoying a coffee in the garden.

Home to a hot tub and furniture, the garden is a superb spot morning, noon or night, where you can also admire the picture-perfect sea views.

Portland is a wonderful seaside town to discover when you have time to explore.

A genuine highlight is the Portland Castle, and the charming museum with displays on the local history and maritime traditions.

Don't miss Portland Alpacas and Blacknor Fort, a well-preserved castle from the 16th century.

There are many restaurants and bars in this area, including The Eight Kings which is just a minute or two from the property, The Cove House Inn, Billy Winters, the Crab House and Cod Fathers, where you should go for mouthwatering fish and chips takeaway.

Weymouth, a quaint seaside town within easy reach, is well-known for its stunning coastline, sandy beaches, and Weymouth Harbour, a well-liked location for sailing and fishing.

On a hilltop overlooking the harbour, Nothe Gardens is a lovely park, and Nothe Fort is a popular tourist destination that dates back to the 19th century.

There are also several restaurants and cafés to enjoy in the town centre, and the coastline is a lovely area for a stroll or a picnic.

Enjoy a coastal getaway at Fisherman’s Cottage.

About the location


Easton 3 miles; Fortuneswell 4 miles; Weymouth 9 miles.

Portland Bill is a narrow promontory on the end of the rugged Isle of Portland peninsula which is joined to the mainland via Chesil Beach, a pebble spit, which stretches 18 miles towards West Bay. Situated on Dorset's spectacular Jurassic Coast, now a World Heritage Site, Portland Bill is home to three lighthouses, the most recent built in 1906 being the 35 meter tall, white and red striped Portland Bill Lighthouse. Portland Bill is home to a pub and a restaurant/café as well as the Portland Bird Observatory. Formerly a quarrying area, the stunning coastal scenery and footpaths provide excellent walking and the surrounding countryside is well known as a birdwatcher’s paradise! The local communities of Fortuneswell and Easton boast a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. With great climbing opportunities and an array of watersports activities on offer locally, plus the wonderful sandy beaches and the pretty harbour at Weymouth just 9 miles away, this super holiday destination is not to be missed!

Please note: Minimum booking 3 nights, shorter bookings would be subject to cancellation.
