    “We really liked the cottage, well described and perfect for what we needed.”

    The beds were comfy and the kitchen was wet equipped. Unfortunately, the cleaning wasn't the best and it could do with a proper deep clean rather than the surface type clean that was done for our arrival. The kettle had an enormous amount of limescale build up and desperately needs cleaning. The electric fire didn't work which would have helped keep the downstairs warm as it got quite chilly of an evening. The parking space is very small, you have to unload people and things before you park ...

    The beds were comfy and the kitchen was wet equipped.

The kettle had an enormous amount of limescale build up and desperately needs cleaning. The electric fire didn't work which would have helped keep the downstairs warm as it got quite chilly of an evening. The parking space is very small, you have to unload people and things before you park as there's no room to get out, we do have a big vehicle though. The neighbours didn't like us doing this and commented to us which made us feel like we were upsetting them or doing something we shouldn't. We also would have appreciated being told before booking that there was cctv, we noticed a camera half way through our stay. Generally it was really nice although slightly let down by a few things that could easily be resolved with a little care.

    Thank you for your feedback. Please be assured that the porch CCTV is only active when the cottage is vacant in the winter months. We have raised the cleaning issue with Dream Cottages and a new heater will be fitted over winter. It is perfectly fine to load and unload outside Magnolia Cottage. We are sorry and confused why the neighbours complained. Hope you had a great stay otherwise. Property Owner

The property

Pretty and furnished to a high standard, this thatched cottage sits tucked away in the quintessential village of Osmington in Dorset.

The bright and clean decor gives the cottage a cosy feel, with quirky, individual touches around the property.

The open plan living area with kitchen, dining table for four and sitting area lends itself perfectly to socialising and relaxing during your stay.

Two comfortable bedrooms will give you a good nights’ sleep and if you have kids, a cot and high chair are available too. Leave your car behind and explore the area on foot – sink in the gorgeous views of Dorset countryside and coast. Around a 20-minute walk along the famous South West Coast Path leads you to Osmington Mills, the beautiful coastal hamlet, known for its colourful history of smugglers, who supposedly took refuge in the local inn (now The Smugglers Inn), which dates back to the XIII century.

The inn is large with plenty of outdoor seating, and the food is superb!

Try a meal there and explore the beach nearby. Situated next to Craig's Farm Dairy, tea room and farm shop, you will find yourself perfectly placed for buying fresh milk, cheeses and wonderful ice cream.

A short drive away is the bustling seaside town of Weymouth, with a wealth of bars, restaurants, shops and activities, as well as the three mile stretch of idyllic sandy beach, hosting a range of traditional seaside entertainment during the summer months and great for wintry strolls out of peak season.

During your stay we would also recommend a trip East to the unique Lulworth Cove; spend the day on the sheltered shingle beach or enjoy a meal at one of the local pubs or restaurants, while taking in the stunning scenery.

A walk from Lulworth Cove over to Durdle Door offers the perfect opportunity to admire the striking views over the coastline and unusual geological formations. Venture West and you will reach the beautiful market town of Bridport with its' lovely shops and weekly market with fresh local produce.

Take a trip to beautiful West Bay harbour with its' lovely beach and amazing cliffs to admire.

Venture further and you will find yourself on the fossil hunters land – Charmouth and Lyme Regis.

This charming and compact cottage is a perfect family holiday base to explore Dorset coast and countryside.

About the location

OSMINGTON

Osmington village, sits on the Jurassic coastline of Dorset, just 6 miles from Weymouth with it’s infamous beach and historic harbour and just 11 miles from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Home to the famous Chalk hillside carving of George III on horseback, cut into the hillside to commemorate the Royal visits to Weymouth, this landmark can be seen from miles away. It is also the place that John Constable spent his honeymoon in 1816 and where he completed his painting of Weymouth Bay that now hangs in the National Gallery. The South West Coastal path runs through Osmington Mills, a tiny hamlet on the edge of Osmington. Here many walkers start their coast path walks at the Smugglers inn, where reputedly there are historic connections to smuggling. Be sure to visit to find out all the stories. A short drive will see you reach a local convenience store at Preston. Weymouth offers a larger variety of shopping, eating and entertainment choices.
