The property

Nestled away on the edge of the quintessential Dorset Coastal village of Osmington sits this modern converted lodge which has been furnished to a high standard.

Whitegates Lodge is a link detached property standing in lovely grounds shared with the owner's own home. Guests will have use of the front garden which has a large lawn.

Patio doors also lead out onto a gravelled area with a table and chairs where warm summer evenings can be enjoyed.

The property is accessed along a gated gravel driveway, tucked away just off the main village road in Osmington.

The bright and clean decor gives a cool but relaxed feel throughout the property.

The open plan living kitchen diner lends itself perfectly to socialising and relaxing during your stay.

A short distance from the property is Craig's Farm Dairy, tea room and farm shop, which is ideal for buying fresh milk, cheeses and wonderful ice cream.

A 5 mile 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.

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 13th Century.

We would also recommend a trip east to the unique and beautiful Lulworth Cove during your stay; 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 Jurassic Coastline with its unusual geological formations.

Whitegates Lodge would suit a couple or young family wanting to explore the Dorset Coast line and country walks.

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.
