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

Nice property, easy access to all the sights.
Very comfortable house. Great location.
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.
Very nice home away from home
Very well maintained home. Comfortable and well appointed with plenty of space.
Fantastic house, great location, totally recommend it
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.
Great house and location. Close to sailing academy and harbour and lots of lovely walks.
House beautifully furnished with all
