The Portland Pebble Bed and Breakfast has superb views overlooking Smallmouth Bay at Wyke Regis. The sandy bay is just a few paces from our doorstep and is fantastic for swimming, boating, windsurfing and relaxing on the beach.
The Jurassic Coast, Chesil Beach, Fleet and Visitors Centre are close by. Fishing, paddle boarding and walking are also popular leisure pursuits in the area.
With prior knowledge, dietary needs for breakfast can be accommodated.
The bright twin or double guest rooms have en-suite bathrooms/showers and sea-views.
Why not visit the beautifully-restored Victorian Nothe Fort with its fantastic views of Weymouth and Portland, or the Tudor House, one of Weymouth's few remaining Tudor buildings which is furnished in the style of an early 17th century middle class family home? There is also the remains of the Jordan Hill Roman Temple overlooking Weymouth Bay. For nature lovers, there's not one but two RSPB nature reserves, Weymouth's Sea Life Park, and the butterfly reserves on Portland. Or, for the younger (or not so younger ones) ones, there's always Sharky's indoor soft play centre, the skate park, as well as pirate-themed mini golf and Sandworld.
The Weymouth and Portland area provides some of the finest waters in Britain, perhaps even Europe, for watersports such as sailing, diving, wind surfing, kite surfing and sea angling, which is why it has been selected as the venue for the Olympic sailing events when London hosts the Games in 2012. For the less energetic, there are frequent boat trips along the breathtaking Jurassic coastline, including some paddle steamer excursions, high-speed ferries making daily trips to the Channel Islands, and even a white water ride through Portland's roughest waters, 'the Race'.
