Osmington is a quaint Dorset village close to the seaside and 5 miles from the popular resort of Weymouth. There’s much to explore in this part of Dorset including the South West Coast Path with its views of the English Channel, the Jurassic Coast - a UNESCO world heritage site, Portland Bill, Chesil Beach and Abbotsbury Swan Sanctuary. Weymouth is packed with interesting independent shops and great restaurants to try some local fare.

On arrival at this modern home-from-home, you will first encounter the entrance hall which serves as access to the ground-floor rooms and the staircase to the first floor. The spacious dual-aspect lounge is a welcoming space with ample comfortable seating for all guests, a TV/DVD and a wood burner to cosy up next to after a long day of touring. There is a doorway from the lounge into the garden for convenience too. Opposite the lounge, is a dining room complete with a table, seating six diners and a highchair. There is also Hi-Fi and a selection of books to borrow. Next door, the kitchen comes equipped with handy appliances that include a gas oven and hob, washing machine, microwave, fridge/freezer and radio. Also, on the ground floor there is a WC and a cupboard for your outdoor wear. Upstairs, you will find three restful bedrooms: one double with en-suite shower room and WC and two twins.

Outside the property, you will find two gardens. The first of which is at the front of the house and is a delightful, gravel-covered space with small trees, shrubs and climbing plants.

It felt as though this cottage was newly added to the list, due to some hiccups with the heating. Enjoyable week in a lovely location.

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.
