An additional bonus to this lovely holiday home is a lockable storage area where you can keep bikes, wetsuits and wellies. There are also garden chairs for your use that you are welcome to take in to the communal garden which is a pretty spot to sit and relax in. Please note the communal garden is terraced, with steps. The storage area is shared with the other apartments so please ensure you store your items considerately and securely if you need to.
No 1 By The Sea is a leisurely level stroll of just over five minutes away from Preston beach where the waters are shallow and usually quite calm which makes it a wonderful spot for a paddle. A must visit is the Oasis Cafe that serves excellent food (give the local seafood a try) and boasts uninterrupted views of the sea. If the sun is shining then you can enjoy a cool drink outside on the beach and when the weather is a bit wilder, cosy up inside the cafe with a hot chocolate and watch the waves. The beach is made up of shingles and running adjacent to the beach is a paved promenade where you can walk all the way into Weymouth town centre. For wonderful views across Bowleaze Coveway, head to the Lookout Cafe that serves fabulous breakfasts.
If you can tear yourself away from the beach then there is so much else nearby. Weymouth itself is a traditional seaside town that has a historic harbour, glorious sandy beach and a number of great places to eat. If you are into sailing or water sports then head to Portland, home of the 2012 Olympic events and known globally as one of the best places to try these sports out. There is also Portland Bill which is a great position to watch the waves crash on to the cliffs below the lighthouse. If you travel between Weymouth and Portland then be sure to make a pit stop at the Crab House cafe that serves exceptional seafood (booking is essential).
Be sure to pack your walking boots as there are some beautiful walks to explore. In close proximity to No 1 By The Sea are two nature reserves that are perfect for bird-watching and with the Jurassic Coast on your doorstep you will be spoilt for areas of this unforgettable seascape to enjoy. Younger guests will love the Sealife Centre which is just down the road, as well as the cute donkeys which are available for rides along the beach.
