    “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. ...

    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.

The property

Norden Cottage is a delightful 300 year old character cottage with slate roof and exposed stone work.

It is located on a no through lane on the inland coast path in the heart of Osmington, a picture postcard Dorset village.

As soon as you enter the property and set foot in the dining area you cannot help but be immersed into the history of the cottage.

With an open plan living area with archways through to the kitchen and sitting area complete with wood-burning stove set on the most spectacular stone chimney breast.

The hand crafted kitchen is just perfect for any meals or snacks you may wish to enjoy whilst you are there.

Maybe sit and enjoy eating al-fresco in the lawned garden complete with swing-chair.

The character of this property continues on in the bedroom with exposed beams and stonework.

Osmington provides the perfect place to explore and walk the costal paths.

Why not also stop and enjoy a meal and a drink after a good day’s walking in the Smugglers Inn, close to the coast.

Alternatively amble through the countryside and along the inland coastal path, where you can find etched into the chalk downland the famous 'White Horse' with King George III riding back towards London.

Visiting the scenic beaches at Lulworth, Ringstead or the major resort of Weymouth are also an option and just a short car ride away.

There is a farm shop in the village at Craig's Dairy Farm offering local produce, Co-op and Spar shops less than 5 minutes' drive away and a full range of services at nearby Weymouth and Dorchester.

This character filled beautiful cottage is just the ideal place to immerse yourself in history in a beautiful village setting.

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.

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
