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.
