The West Country 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.

"Charming cottage in Portland"

Despite the typical British weather we enjoyed our 3rd visit to Portland, staying at the charming Rosa Cottage. Based a short walk from Chesil Beach, and the local pubs and shops, Rosa Cottage is a gr… More

"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.

Very nice terrace house tastefully decorated throughout. However parking near to the house was a major issue, we even one evening had to wait 15minutes for someone to leave the car park at the top of … More

Dear guest

Thank you for taking the time to review my cottage. It is always useful to get feedback from guests. I am glad you enjoyed the cottage, but I feel I must point out that the bathroom has frosted windows, so it is totally private. However, as other guest might also feel the need for an additional blind, I have now fitted one.

I would also like to point out that none of the neighbours have a dog - so any barking noise must have come from one of the nearby holiday cottages. It is usually a very quiet street but there were a lot of extra visitors during August and the Olympics as expected.
