“So nice to arrive for our New Year break with the little extra details of Christmas decorations and goodies left for us to enjoy.”
All added to a wonderful break. Highly recommend
All added to a wonderful break. Highly recommend- Mrs Nicholls, December 2019
“Norden Cottage is a quaint, quiet 300 year old cottage in a lovely location.”
It was warm and cozy and the enclosed garden was great for our dog. Attention to details could have been a little better (outside light did not work, light over downstairs bathroom mirror didn't work and bulb had gone in bedside lamp in small bedroom with no suitable replacement bulb available). However, these aside we loved our stay and it was nice to be provided with milk, eggs, tea, coffee and biscuits upon arrival....flowers too!- Mrs Maskell, November 2019
“Cottage in need of some repair.”
Upstairs bathroom flooring need repairing. Cooker very old and grill covered in think grease and needs cleaning. Quite a few bulbs need replacing. Just need some TLC. Other than that a very pretty and charming cottage.- Mrs Gulliver, October 2019
“Location good, and garden great for dogs.”
Cottage lovely, but could do with some TLC. Plus door kept sticking.- Mr Hockley, September 2019
“There is a very limited intermittent TV signal.”
Didn’t watch anything all week very disappointing.- Mr Johnson, September 2019
“Beautiful cottage in a tranquil location, superb country walks and coastal path nearby”- Mr Harvey, June 2019
“The tiles in the bathroom upstairs are damaged.”
We had a note to tell us that - but not until our arrival. As a result we did not use the bath. I handed my wife a glass of wine only to find that the glass had been put on the rack despite being cracked. The lack of extraction or ventilation in the kitchen restricted our use of the cooking facilities. Likewise the extraction for the shower room being a window opening onto the neighbours decking was hardly ideal. Liked the garden, and nice and secure for the dog. Great location. Had a very enjoyable stay.- Mr Masson, May 2019
“We love the cottage and the garden, it’s comfortable, clean and we enjoyed every minute of being there.”- Mrs Lewis, May 2019

“We had a perfect few days staying at Norden Cottage.”
The weather was warm and sunny so we greatly enjoyed having breakfast in the garden each morning. The cottage had everything we needed and was well equipped, cosy and very clean. It's in a great location for walks and the beach. The roll top bath and lighting in the top bathroom was gorgeous. We highly recommend the cottage and would definitely return! Stayed May 2017- Mr Steven Gall, Jun 2017

“Just a lovely enjoyable week, would heartily recommend - stayed July 2016”- Mr Anthony Roome, Aug 2016
Excellently positioned in this quiet village and provides a great base for any trip. Enjoyed the nearby hills for walking and the proximity to Weymouth, Portland, beaches and some lovely pubs (Springhead @ Sutton Poyntz, Smugglers @ Osmington Mills and the Sailors Return @ East Chaldon) Cottage has all the mod cons required for a comfortable stay for all the family and the fire made us really feel at home in the cold countryside. Would recommend this property to anyone. :-) Stayed February 2016- Mr Alexander Ure, Mar 2016
“Stayed December 2015”- Mr Scott Braiden, Jan 2016

“Fell in love with this cottage which was ideal for a quiet relaxing break.”
Very dog friendly with secure garden, Situated on the edge of the village with beautiful walks from the door, both over the hills or down to the coastal path. Three dog friendly pubs within walking distance or short car ride (approx 1 mile) - Stayed March 2015.- Mrs Mary Whiley, Mar 2015
“A beautiful cottage in a lovely location.”
Welcoming, clean and comfortable with all you could need for a restful break. My only suggestion would be a washing line as, although it was February, the days were bright and breezy and this would have been very helpful in drying the multitude of towels required when holidaying with two dogs. The tea, coffee, milk and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch and most gratefully received - Mrs Stokes - Stayed February 2015- Mrs Stokes, Feb 2015

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.
Note: From dining room small step down through open archway to kitchen (hand crafted), kitchen has slightly lower than normal ceiling, average height 6ft. Step down to the downstairs bathroom. Note: One basket of logs provided from October to March
