Lychgate Cottage is a beautifully traditional detached thatched cottage, dating back to C1500, located in the heart of the centuries old village of Osmington in Dorset.  Winding village lanes are bordered by grey stone thatched cottages in this picture postcard location.   The village is well served with Craig's Farm Dairy where you can buy milk from the cows in the fields surrounding the village and their speciality ice-cream - arguably the best in the county!   Next to Lychgate Cottage is St Osmund's Church, sections of which date back to 1200 - do visit and marvel at this history.   A drive to the beaches at Weymouth which is around 6 miles and Lulworth, around 10 miles, is perfect for indulging in sand castle making (Weymouth) and ice creams,  making a perfect day out.  Keen walkers are spoilt with options of exploring the surrounding coast at Ringstead and Osmington Mills.  Ringstead is a pebbly beach which is often quiet, even in the height of the summer.  The Smugglers at Osmington Mills is a famous hostelry serving good food.  Returning to Lychgate Cottage, relax in the lounge which is full of character and features a beamed ceiling, or enjoy the last of the day's sun on the lawn in front of the cottage.*The Lychgate stands at the entrance to the churchyard of St.Osmund's Church next to the cottage - see photo 13.

Mr R Tarr
An outstanding holiday property of charming architectural character. Very clean and spacious. Very well furnished and we a well appointed kitchen. Lovely garden and good patio to eat out. Some evidence of the owner's presence which gave it a welcoming feel. I'd recommend it highly – Stayed July 2017.

Mrs L Williams
Didn't need to contact Dream Cottages at all, everything about the booking was fine. The cottage itself is perfect, beautiful, and we enjoyed our stay so much we have booked again for later in the year. We specifically wanted a cottage to take our 2 dogs with us - it was perfect for us - location, equipment, cleanliness - outstanding. Thank you. Stayed June 2017

About the Location

The picturesque country lanes of Osmington are filled with beautiful thatched old stone cottages and farm houses and the network of country walks throughout the village, ensure that you have the best walking routes right on your doorstep.

Use your Osmington cottage as a base and explore the Jurassic coast. There are some fantastic fossil walks, whether organised by a company or adventured solo. The 195 million year old history stamped into the Jurassic Coast is what makes this area so wonderful. Dorset was tropical and in the centre of the giant Pangaea continent back then so any fossils found today from this time, have not been touched by a living thing for 195 million years, which is pretty incredible and the ease at which you will find complete ammonite fossils in this area makes for an extremely rewarding day.
