Olympic Cottage is situated on The Officer's Field, a stunning residential development built originally to house athletes during the 2012 Olympic sailing events. The property is located on the edge of the Isle of Portland on the World Heritage Coast in Dorset. With an open plan layout downstairs the cottage is perfect for guests to enjoy cooking, eating and relaxing together. Olympic Cottage is a short walk to the iconic National Sailing Academy where you may enjoy sailing or windsurfing. Alternatively if you prefer a gentler pursuit, you can walk part of the South West Coastal Path which runs right around the island, a favoured location for bird watchers also. Following the route, you will pass stone quarries where traditional Portland stone, used in iconic buildings such as St Paul's cathedral has been excavated. At the top of the Island, the famous Portland Bill light house can be viewed and there you will also find a couple of restaurants / cafes serving refreshments. Local shops are a convenient a five minute stroll away. The traditional Georgian seaside town of Weymouth is just a 15 minute drive (or bus journey) away where the long and sandy award winning beach has a traditional family appeal with donkey rides, trampolines and ice cream chalets.
