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.
