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

Great break over New Year

  • 5 of 5

Two families and a dog stayed in this wonderful property for a few days over the New Year period. It was perfect accommodation for two families with 2 double and 2 twin rooms, which worked brilliantly. The whole property is incredibly well equipped, with a large, open plan room downstairs, which enables easy catering for all. The property has great views over Portland and Chesil beach and we enjoyed the ability to walk anywhere we wanted. There are pubs in walking distance and a Tesco's close by. The field at the front of the house was perfect for the dog.

We all had a great stay and would return without hesitation.

Great Christmas holiday in this amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this area to stay as it was equidistant for us to converge and so glad we did, what a lovely house with all we needed to enjoy Christmas.

The house was spotless and beautifully decorated for the festivities when we arrived, a truly well equipped kitchen, lots of space, comfy beds and just a short walk to Chesil Beach for our Christmas day swim!!

The house was excellent, the rooms are very comfortable, clean and some of the bedrooms even have a sea view.

everything was perfect, we needed nothing more to make our stay enjoyable and stress free, I would recommend this house to anyone.

Activity and Interests

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.
