An elegant mix of classic and contemporary, this property in Osmington village proudly presents many of its beautiful, original features alongside lots of luxurious modern touches.

Pride of place in the centre of the village, a number of cafes and amenities are within walking distance. 350 yards from a great pub, enjoy a short stroll before pouring over a local menu and choosing your dish of the day. Less than 1 mile from the cottage, Osmington Bay beach is within easy reach, rewarding visitors with a large pebbly beach and blue sea. Further up the coast, the iconic Durdle Door is only a 10-mile drive and a must for anyone in the area, whether you are making a quick pitstop or spending the whole day.

Coming in through the front door your eye will immediately be drawn to the period stone fireplace with fantastic detailing, where a functioning wood burner now makes itself at home. Facing the lounge area, the wood burner is not only an attractive feature but a truly atmospheric addition in winter as it throws a rosy glow across the room. Flop on the sofa with one of the many books provided or inhale the hot wisps of steam from a freshly brewed cuppa. Sporting an open-plan design, the downstairs living area has an intimate, social feel, whilst still providing plenty of space to spread out. On the far side of the living area, a dining table sits next to the window, ready for dinner time or a game of cards. Partly separated by a fantastic original archway, downstairs is also home to a kitchen. Stepping through the archway and down a couple of steps, the kitchen is surprisingly spacious and equipped with an oven and hob, fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. Heading up the original stone, turret-style staircase with rope handrail, you will come to a small landing with a few more steps, and then the bedroom. Home to a double bed, the bedroom’s huge French-style doors open up to let in a refreshing breeze as well as garden and countryside views. On the opposite side of the bedroom to the windows is the bathroom. Here, you can find a bath with overhead shower, sink and WC. The bedroom has slightly reduced height in the eaves.

Heading outside, the property’s rear garden, accessible via two steps, includes a pretty, gravelled area. Another three steps lead you up to a spacious raised deck, affording views of the village and hills beyond. If you’re bringing wheels with you, you can park 1 car on the drive and store your bike in the garage.

We werent disappointed with Nutmeg cottage at all - it was as cosy and characterful as we hoped it would be from the website. Also spotlessly clean, well equipped and tastefully presented. Nice and warm too given the time of year. Location is excellent, easy access to countryside and coast yet convenient for the town. Its a great combination so wouRead moreld definitely stay again.

Very well equipped, compact and cozy but roomy upstairs. Even a little study on the landing. Plenty of storage for clothes and food in the kitchen. Parking space available. Internet is variable though.

Location

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.
