    “Honeybun cottage is in a great location and has a character all of its own and we would stay here again.”

    There are some great Jurassic coastal walks easily accessible from the cottage with spectacular views and there's a pub called The Sly Fox literally just a 5 min walk away serving food (handy if you don't fancy cooking). ...

    There are some great Jurassic coastal walks easily accessible from the cottage with spectacular views and there's a pub called The Sly Fox literally just a 5 min walk away serving food (handy if you don't fancy cooking). During our stay 03-07 May 2019 there was two things that need attention by the owners, the ground floor sink in the shower room / toilet has a leaky hot tap and the garden isn't as dog friendly as stated in the details, our dogs could get out of the end of the garden into a space behind the garden where there's a brook/stream and the back of the neighbors gardens. Neither issue would put us off staying again but if the garden issue was rectified it would make the stay more enjoyable with dogs.

The property

A petite thatched chocolate box cottage, in the village of Osmington. This property is full of character, parts of property date from the 16th Century. As you arrive to the cottage you step into the sitting room which boasts a feature fire place and the beams on the ceiling show the charming characteristics of the cottage.

The kitchen and diner lead out to the garden, which is perfect for cooking the breakfast to then be enjoyed on the patio on a summer’s day.

Bedroom one and a shower room are on the ground floor and the upper floor has another bedroom with an en-suite.

This dainty little abode is nestled in the attractive village of Osmington; a peaceful village with stone and thatched cottages, it is an ideal location for country walks and horse riding.

The place name comes from the Old English personal name, Ösmund, with ‘ington’, a farm.

Osmington has lots of history, with people living there for over 2000years.

The local coastal point is at Osmington Mills and a short car journey offers visits to the beaches at Lulworth, Ringstead and Weymouth.

A walk up the lane will take you to the Smugglers Inn, perfect for a light refreshment or a good pub meal.

A walk in the other direction will lead you to open countryside where etched into the chalk downs is the famous 'White Horse' with King George III riding back towards London.

Nearby is Sutton Poyntz a beautiful place to visit.

To walk to the village of Sutton Poyntz, the best way is walk to the back of Osmington Village and across 5 fields direct to the village of Sutton Poyntz.

Or you can go the long way around The White Horse and over the ridge.

Sutton Poyntz has a lovely duck pond and the Springhead Pub. The cottage is in the perfect location to base yourselves to discovering the delights of Dorset.

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.
