  • John

    “Sofas were uncomfortable.”

    Limited cleaning materials provided; e.g. bleach for loos, pads to clean cooking utensils.

    Limited cleaning materials provided; e.g. bleach for loos, pads to clean cooking utensils. Bedding and towels very good BUT, mattresses were far too soft; single bed falling out of bed if turning. All in all very uncomfortable; limited opportunity to get adequate rest. Car parking spot - immediately under bird roosting area resulting in car festooned in bird faeces. Not good

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 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.
