Stunning 18th-century cottage with many period features and beautifully handcrafted bespoke kitchen, located conveniently for access to the coast and the famous White Horse.

This delightful cottage is located on a tranquil no-through lane in the quaint village of Osmington. Ideally situated for access to the plethora of coastal walks available along Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, it is also conveniently located to visit the famous White Horse on the South Dorset Downs. The White Horse is a hill figure cut into limestone and is said to have been created in 1808 in honour of King George III.

The cottage is entered from the rear garden through a porch into a hall with ample space for coats and boots so that you don’t have to travel through the house with muddy boots after a country walk. There is a wonderful beamed double aspect kitchen/dining room with a beautiful handcrafted kitchen and traditional oak worktops. All modern conveniences can be found in the kitchen along with some period features including an original bread oven and inglenook, which houses the family dining table. The sitting room has yet more period features with exposed stone walls and oak floors. The log burner provides a cosy feel and you can imagine curling up on the comfortable sofa with a good book in the cooler evenings. French doors to the garden allow a seamless transition from the interior to the exterior. There is a bathroom located downstairs for convenience, and this is accessed down three steps from the hall. On the first floor of the property there are three beamed bedrooms with views over the garden to the wooded hillside beyond. There is an en suite double with double aspect, a second spacious en suite double bedroom and a double aspect twin room with exposed stone walls and feature fireplace.

This property has a level rear garden mainly laid to lawn and dotted with shrubbery and trees extending the feel of the countryside into the garden. It is a great place for sitting out reading a book, catching some rays or simply enjoying nature at its best. The terrace outside the French windows is ideal for sunny breakfasts and evening barbecues.

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.
