It has a quintessentially English exterior, but on the inside it is cool and contemporary, making it a fabulous place for families looking to explore the Dorset coast and countryside.

A delightful, thatched cottage in the quiet village of Osmington is the perfect place to appreciate the tranquillity of the Dorset countryside. With lots of space, the whole family will be able to spread out and make the most of their holiday and with lots to see and do in the local area, everyone will be happy. The seaside town of Weymouth, with its long, sandy beach, Victorian esplanade and variety of attractions is well worth a visit. Or why not head 11 miles east to the rock arch Durdle Door and walk along the stunning beach at the ‘horseshoe-shaped’ Lulworth Cove in the village of West Lulworth with its selection of cafes, pubs and shops.

You can enter this property via the steps from the village lane up to the front door or via the level access at the rear that leads to the back door. Entering through the front door, you will find yourself in a small hallway with the spacious, double aspect lounge on your left. With its light walls, cool palette and warm woods, this room is well-lit and spacious. On cooler evenings, you can light the gas log-effect fire to create a cosy feel. There are French doors leading from the lounge into a modest conservatory, which allows guests to relax whilst looking out to the garden. To the right of the hallway, is the large kitchen/diner, which again, is light and airy. The exposed beams in the kitchen remind you of the building’s heritage, as does the cottage-style furniture and Belfast sink. Moving through the well-equipped kitchen, you can walk around to the far end of the lounge or out through the back door into the courtyard garden. There is also a WC on this floor. Ascending the staircase, the fresh, contemporary cottage-style continues with neutral, light-reflecting colours throughout, with touches of warm woods. There are four bedrooms: one king-size, one double, one twin and one single. The king-size room has an en-suite shower room, whilst the other rooms share the modern family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Outside, there is a delightful, mature courtyard garden with shrubs and plants to create interest. There are a few different seating areas, including a picnic bench on a gravelled area for al fresco family meals in the Dorset sunshine.

Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

A modern, clean cottage with every facility (home from home) in an ideal location to explore the Dorset coastline. Also, walking distance to a Dairy Farm - fresh milk & everyday consumables on your doorstep!

Reviewed by Mrs R Common 2nd April 2019

We found the information about the heating system very difficult to follow and suggest that this is made more comprehensible! Otherwise this is a comfortable cottage and reflected its description.

Reviewed by Mrs G Gee 3rd January 2019

The cottage was beautifully decorated with a Christmas tree, fairy lights and tinsel. The kitchen was extremely well equipped to feed a large number of people. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage had a very cosy atmosphere.

Extremely comfortable and welcoming with lots of personal touches

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
