About the property

House in Portland, Dorset, England - Coastal Location, 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach

A beautiful detached, contemporary, spacious townhouse set on Dorset's Isle of Portland. No 41 sits secluded in the corner of an award-winning, eco friendly development, originally built for the International Sailing Teams at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Its a perfect location to explore the hidden gem of Portland, and for exploring Dorset and Devon, with the stunning 'Jurassic Coast' and beautiful countryside. The house has lovely views of the Olympic sailing venue and Chesil beach. With short walks to cafes, pubs - perfect for long sunday lunches. A great place to exhaust children young and old.

About Sally Budden

Hi - We hope you enjoy our holiday home as much as we do, its a great location and perfect for our sailing enthusiastic son.

We are a family of 4, based in Cheshire and have decided to let the property out when we are not escaping here for a nice weekend break or for either training or a sailing event.

The Olympic development is tastefully and perfectly located.- With great open plan living and all the mod cons required for day to day living.

Sally Budden purchased this house in 2014

Very comfortable house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed here. Three generations with ages ranging from 9 to 68 years old.

The house was spotlessly clean and the furnishings were comfortable. It was extremely well equipped and there was just about everything we could possibly need.

The location of the house was brilliant, especially for our two grandsons who made lots of use the free skateboard park a few hundred yards away.

We had a problem with one of the showers which the owners dealt with very promptly.

If we ever decide to visit this area again we would certainly consider this property.

Thanks Sally!

Fantastic house, great location, totally recommend it

  • 5 of 5

Came to Portland to celebrate husband's 50th birthday weekend with three other couples.

House was absolutely perfect. Downstairs is all open planned with table and seating to accommodate all of us easily. Bedrooms are split over two floors with showering facilities on both levels. The quality of the furnishings and furniture was excellent and there really was everything that we needed.

Although the weather only allowed us to sit out in the garden once it would have been prefect had it been a sunny weekend.

This house is one of the best I've ever rented - it really was perfect and exceeded expectations.

Thank you Sally

We had a lovely long weekend in Portland at the house. It comfortably accommodated 8 of us across three generations. The kitchen is well equipped, the house is spacious and clean.

We did have a couple of problems with one of the showers and the dishwasher but contacted the owner and a plumber came out later the same day and resolved these. With another bathroom & WC in the meantime it was never a significant issue for us.

Would thoroughly recommend the house and location.

Lovely house with everything you need but location not great.

  • 4 of 5

This house was like a home from home, the bedrooms were lovely and big and the kitchen / living area was fab. The kitchen was fully stocked with crockery etc and even a few store cupboard items too which we found a help.

The house is on Portland and we found that we really needed to use the car most days to go out as there wasn't a great deal within walking distance, especially with a child in a pushchair. We were also woken most mornings by the sound of banging coming from the reclamation yard behind the property.

Having said that it didn't detract from a lovely week away and dealing with Sally and her family was a pleasure, she always answered emails and the information before arrival was great. Thanks again Sally & Family

Special interest holidays:

Having been built to house the International sailing teams for the 2012 Olympics, No 41 is on the doorstep of world class watersport facilities, from sailing to windsurfing. A great base for squad training or if you are attending sailing events at WPNSA.

Sitting on the Jurassic coast, the house is also the perfect base for both dramatic and leisurely trekking or cycling.


Spectacular Chesil beach is 3 minutes away on foot miles of steep, smooth pebbles. Great fun for watching the waves crash on the shore or throwing stones into the sea. For the more sedate, a walkway runs across the back of the beach for an easy promenade. A cafe also provides a superb bird spotting. A 10 minute drive to a huge sandy beach at Weymouth where the water is very safe for swimming. Often donkeys & fairground rides on the beach but large enough to find a quiet spot too!


45 miles to Bournemouth International Airport (1hr 15 mins drive)

64 miles to Exeter (1hr 34 min drive)

77 miles to Bristol airport (2hr 10 min drive)

126 miles to Heathrow airport (2hr 40 min drive)

Ferries and trains to Weymouth 10 minute drive away. Regular bus services between Weymouth & Portland.

Car useful but is not essential. Cafes and some shops walking distance, with excellent bus services.


Portland Bill - (2 miles) - with its famous lighthouse and bird watching station is about a 10 minute drive.

Olympic sailing centre - (under 1 mile) - sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, cafe/restaurant.

Short walk to Osprey leisure centre

Ever popular Weymouth: (4 Miles) is 10 minutes away by car - beach, restaurants, old harbour, sea life centre, major high-street shops, cinema

Dorchester: 15 miles (antique shopping)

Further Details:

Fortuneswell is a ten minute walk away up a steep hill (not for the faint hearted) and has pubs, cafes, Takeaways, a post office & newsagent, pharmacy, well equipped Co-op store and several fishing shops. Deeper into Portland is Easton, which is about a 5 minutes drive, where more shops and facilities can be found, together with a newly built and good sized Tesco store. Tesco's home delivery also available.
