Mrs E McGann
We have just spent two weeks in the perfect location in Osmington. Waterson Cottage was more than we could have imagined. The cottage was perfect for our family with three large bedrooms, a spacious lounge, two bathrooms and and plenty to do. Our family enjoyed the use of the pool/snooker table and having the opportunity to play the games or read the books provided.The kitchen was well equipped for all our needs.The location is lovely, we spent time on the decking overlooking the hills surrounding it looking at the deer and badgers. It was wonderful to see birds of prey circling overhead too.The children enjoyed playing in the garden, exploring, seeing all the different fruit trees.We are looking forward to returning to Waterson again as it was the best holiday we have had in all the 16 years we have been coming to Weymouth. Scott and Emma. Stayed August 2016

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.
