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.

Lots to do in Portland
House location is great for exploring Portland. Close to two good pubs for food. A short walk onto Chesil Beach.
Spacious house - perfect for groups of 8.
A fantastic property with everything you could possibly need for a family holiday.
The location is ideal for access to Portland and Weymouth with its many attractions . Any fishermen will love the easy access to the famous Chesil beach and it is only a few minutes drive to Portland Bill.
The house is very spacious and well equiped with a nice garden and a safe grassy play area at the rear .
One of the best places I have ever booked .
I have already reccomended it to family and freinds .
Lovely Modern House
A modern 3 storey house, well equipped and very clean. House is much bigger than it looks and has a very homely feel to it. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend this house.
Beautiful property excellent location definitely going to be returning
Wonderful house on almost Mediterranean island
We had a fantastic weekend at No.41. The house is massive, light, airy, great views, and still feels very cosy, we felt very much at home. The garden is perfect for sun-bathing (both me and the dogs enjoyed the sunny spot), plus there is an enclosed dog excercise field right behind the house, complete with poo-bin, very handy. A short stroll away is Chesil Beach- wonderful turqoise water, perfect for the dogs swimming, and an endless variety of beautiful pebbles to admire. No litter on the beach either, beautifully clean. Walk to the end of the beach and you reach a lovely cafe, Quiggles, with outdoor seating area (I can recommend their hot sauce with Dorset naga chillis). Closer to the house Chesil Chippie does Samphire Tempura and Vegan "fish" and chips. We slept so well at the house too, so quiet. The island itself surprised me with how almost Mediterranean it felt, especially wandering down past Rufus Castle and around the coastline (the cliffs extremely popular with climbers it seems), white limsestone, turqoise sea, blue butterflies, lilac and yellow flowers everywhere - it was like a feast for the eyes. Can also recommend the Tout Quarry sculpture park, unfortunately we didnt have enough time to even find half if the sculptures wandering around a beautiful little maze on the hill top with fantastic views- will have to come back sometime. Wonderful house, wonderful island that surprised me with how much there is to see and do, perfect for dogs (and I'm sure for children too). Will hopefully be back! Thank you so much!

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!
