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

This property is a delightful one-bedroom stone barn conversion marrying traditional with modern in the centre of the village of Osmington. This cosy and characterful cottage is tastefully presented and the lane on which it is situated leads to multiple footpaths - ideal for exploring the local area. Its proximity to the local pub, shop and café and coast make it an enviable location for two to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Enter the cottage through the stable door and discover a cosy open-plan interior complete with limestone floors, a wood burner and gorgeous stained glass window with window seat. Curl up on the sofa with a coffee and make use of the stereo, TV or iPod dock or take two steps down to the well-equipped kitchen to fix yourself a snack. Upstairs, via a steep stone staircase, you’ll find a landing with desk as well as inviting double bedroom - just mind your head in the eaves. The bathroom with shower over bath is also on this level. Outside you’ll find a pretty rear garden - a gravelled area with shrubs and flowers which is reached via two steps. Three steps lead up to a large raised deck and balustrade offering views over the village and rooftops to the hills beyond. There is also a garage for storing bikes and parking on the drive for one car.

Further afield, explore the rugged and fascinating Jurassic coastline. Walk the 13 miles which forms the Isle of Portland circuit and discover beautiful coastline and fascinating wildlife. Start at Ferry Bridge, just 7.5 miles from the cottage, and explore the famous Chesil beach along the way. Of course you can also spend time enjoying the delights of Weymouth, a delightful seaside town just 5 miles away.

A charming and comfortable little cottage in a quiet village ideally positioned for walking the local countryside. This property was very well equipped to a high standard, both bathroom and kitchen were well designed and surprisingly spacious.

Perfect location for exploring the Jurassic coast. Set in a picturesque village, beautifully laid out, well equipped and quiet. The spiral staircase, which does have good handholds, does need some getting used to. Would be happy to recommend the cottage to friends and we hope to revisit soon.

This is a lovely cottage for two, the steps to the bedrooms are a bit tricky for the less able but this is made clear in the description. Otherwise it is peaceful, spotless and had everything one could need for a comfortable break. The owners made a welcome call to make sure we were happy with everything and Lizzie was also very helpful and respondRead moreed quickly to our report regarding the stair rope. The area is lovely with lots to do and see. Hide

This is a lovely quaint cottage with all you need in the way of equipment if you want to cook yourself. If you dont, the nearest pub serving food, (the sly fox) was a big disappointment. This meant a drive out to The Springhead pub. The village has little in way of services so everything involved the car. Having said that there are some great walksRead more from the front door and if it was a purely walking holiday I wanted I would return. That said wife & I had a very relaxing week. Hide

Picture postcard village with plenty of walks from the door and a great pub in the village. Lovely cottage with bags of charm and perfect for getting to most of Dorset's main attractions.

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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
