An impressive former forge, this property boasts a contemporary light and airy interior and fabulous outside living space.

Located on the edge of the quaint village of Osmington, this mid-row former stone forge boasts a quiet location on a no-through lane. With a local shop just under a quarter of a mile away and a local pub a mile and a half from the property, you’ll have all the essentials nearby as well as being near to the coast.

The ground floor of the cottage benefits from tiled floors throughout, ideal for mopping up those muddy paws after a walk! Entering through the hall into the sitting/dining room, you will find a cosy wood burner and comfortable sofas, just the spot to relax after a busy day exploring. A set of French doors leads you out onto a terrace where summer days can be spent taking in the Dorset rays, also accessible from the kitchen. A bathroom with shower completes the ground floor. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom, all benefitting from beautiful views and a light and fresh decor. There is a small front garden at the property with flowers and shrubs, and to the rear of the cottage, a terrace with a stepped, dry-stone wall planted with flowers leads up ten steps to a lawned garden with a seating area, ideal for relaxing in the evening sunshine with a favourite book. There is dedicated parking for two cars.

The property is only half a mile from the coast. Perfect for early morning walks, you can take in the fresh sea air while exercising your four-legged friend at the same time. A little further afield is the popular tourist resort of Weymouth; there you can have an ice-cream on one of the best beaches in West Dorset or why not experience the panoramic views of Weymouth and the Jurassic Coast by taking a trip on the 53-metre high rotating glass pod!

Great, quiet location with easy access to SW Coastal Path. Good local pubs within walking distance

Nice cottage with good, comfortable accommodation (except main double bed). Slightly strange layout but seems to work ok. Great location for walking and access to West Dorset area. A bit disappointing in terms of equipment, welcome pack etc. Parking is awkward, especially if plan to have additional visitors. Generally probably a bit overpriced for Read morewhat and where its is. Hide

A nice cottage with homely feel. All the beds were very firm. Lovely lounge/diner. Excellent shower room. Could have done with some board games to help entertain the kids.

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.
