Description

Located on a stunning residential development in the Isle of Portland Olympic cottage was originally built to house athletes for the 2012 Olympic Games, sailing events. Only a short walk away from the iconic National Sailing Academy this property is perfect for the water sports enthusiast.
Olympic Cottage sleeps up to 4 in two bedrooms, one double and one twin on the first floor. The generous living area and fully-equipped kitchen and dining area are perfect for couples or small family. You can enjoy preparing meals, unwinding and dining together inside the property or enjoy meals alfresco in the garden space with enclosed patio with furniture.
Take the South West Coast path to explore the Isle of Portland and visit the famous Portland Bill lighthouse with Pulpit Rock, Church Ope Cove with Rufus castle and XIII century church ruins. The area is very popular with birders and twitchers alike, in addition to Portland Bill lighthouse, there are two more lighthouses, one of them being a birdwatcher's members club which you are more than welcome to join.
The number of walks you will find on the Isle of Portland is surprising considering the isle is only 4 miles long by 1.7 miles wide. Portland still has 2 working quarries, and two old ones which are now butterfly reserves.
Created with the quarry's limestone Tout Quarry sculpture park has been used to create sculptures within the quarry where you can have a go at making a sculpture yourself. Follow the map and you will find some interesting artwork!
The Isle of Portland also provides some challenging rock-climbing, with a range of climbing courses, from first climbing principles to advanced sport climbing coaching, from indoor to outdoor climbing sessions or refresher courses as an alternative day out to water sports.
Take a trip to the beautiful seaside town of Weymouth buzzing from events throughout the year. There's a wide selection of the usual high street shops, quirky local shops, restaurants and cafes for you to enjoy while exploring the town. The award-winning sandy beach might tempt you for the day, just swimming and building sand castles.
Travel further East and you will find glorious Jurassic coast rocks in Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge Bay, Chapman's Pool and West Bay sand cliffs while to the East you will discover Lyme Regis and Charmouth.
Stay at Olympic Cottage with friends or family and enjoy water sports, rock-climbing or just have an enjoyable day on a beach – it's all right at your doorstep.
On Dorset's spectacular Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, the village of Fortuneswell can be found on the rugged Isle of Portland, 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!

‘Perfect holiday cottage, was a home away from home. Had everything you would need, ideal location, fabulous walks especially with the dog, great to have an enclosed garden and the gated field at the end of the road was fantastic, the dog loved it. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family.’
