Offering an exceptional self-catering holiday experience in the beautiful Dorset countryside and coast is Laurel Cottage, which can be found at the heart of the village of Osmington.
This superb detached property enjoys plenty of character, as well as contemporary features and furnishings, and is a wonderful place for a couple or small family who want to explore this part of the country.

Afterwards, relax and unwind into your evening by sinking into the sofa and flicking through the channels of the TV.
Once the evening has drawn to a close, make your way up the spiral stairs to find a plush double bed, where you can catch up on rest, while along the landing you will find a single bed and a family bathroom where you can enjoy a long and relaxing soak in the bath.
