The Dorset region

Situated on the Jurassic Coast, Portland is home to England's National Sailing Academy, the venue for sailing events at the 2012 Olympics.

It boasts some of the best diving waters in Northern Europe, whilst the whole of this tiny island offers a haven for walkers, climbers, geologists and birdwatchers, together with a good choice of shops, pubs and eateries.

Chesil Beach connects the island to the main land, whilst Weymouth, with its golden sandy beaches and colourful harbour is just 4 miles away. A perfect location for a varied holiday.


The village of Fortuneswell is situated on the northern coast of the rugged, yet beautiful Isle of Portland on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, 4 miles from Weymouth. The village features an intriguing maze of streets that wind their way up a steep hill, offering stunning views of the Jurassic Coast and the rolling hills of Dorset beyond.

There are many excellent restaurants on the Isle of Portland and also a wide selection of pubs, many who have live bands and music in the evenings. Shops, pubs and restaurants are only a few minutes walk away and the local bus stop only 2 minutes from which buses run to Weymouth town centre every 10 minutes. The famous Crab House Cafe is only a 5 minute drive away.

The property is only a 5 minute drive away from the National Sailing Academy a few minutes walk from the Olympic Vilage and a few minutes walk to the famous Chesil beach.

"Lovely cottage on Portland"

We stayed at Rosa Cottage for a week in July, and had a wonderful time. The cottage is spacious and beautifully furnished, and in an ideal location to explore Portland. Only a couple of minutes walk to Chesil Beach and a short drive to the National Sailing Academy. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for self catering . Beds were comfortable and we very much enjoyed the spacious dining room for long lingering suppers. Having 2 children the separate lounge was also very handy for them to watch TV in the evenings. Parking was easy right outside the cottage most of the time, a couple of times we had to park in the road above, but only as minute walk from the property. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return sometime later this year.

"Excellent holiday home, great value for money!"

Had a really comfortable stay at Rosa Cottage, brilliantly located to visit the Dorset coastline and lovely beach walks five minutes from the front door.

"Large, comfortable well equipped character property."

Pleasantly surprised how big property was as deceptive from outside. Well furnished throughout and plenty of utensils etc. in kitchen, excellent for catering for yourself. Very close to Chesil beach and local footpaths for walking. House was lovely and warm, much appreciated after returning from walks.

"A character cottage"

The cottage was warm, cosy and well furnished. The living areas were spacious with a warm sunny patio garden at the back. We loved the log burner. The location was great; just two minutes walk from the coastal path, several good restaurants and at least two pubs with live music - what a delight! We will definitely be back next year.
