Superb holiday cottage near Weymouth and the Dorset coast, this desirable property is a great prospect for a family looking for a modern home-from-home. Lovely quiet village location, in Osmington, close to country walks and handy amenities.

This attractive, light and welcoming semi-detached cottage has been traditionally built from Purbeck stone and is located near the heart of the historic village of Osmington. With plenty of space for six guests, this charming property makes a fantastic base for a family keen to explore the Jurassic Coast. Osmington is known for the famous George III White Horse which is carved into the chalk hills of the South Dorset Downs, and the village is perfectly situated for visiting the coastal town of Weymouth (4.5 miles) and the thriving market town of Dorchester (8 miles).

Three steps lead up to the porch and through to the tastefully furnished double-aspect lounge which makes a comfortable and welcoming space to relax in at the end of the day. Exploring further, you will find a spacious and stylish kitchen perfect for preparing your favourite meals, and a bright and airy dining room where you can sit back and plan the day.

Heading upstairs, there are three cosy bedrooms: two twin rooms and a double room with an en-suite shower. Stepping outside, you can sit back and relax in the pretty gravelled garden which has outdoor furniture, a summerhouse, trees and shrubs. Parking is available for two cars. Heading to the coast you can explore Ringstead Bay (3 miles) Lulworth Cove (10.5 miles) and the natural arch of Durdle Door (10 miles). The popular seaside town of Weymouth is famous for its beautiful crescent bay, sandy beaches and attractions, including Sandworld and the Jurassic Skyline. You can also discover the beautiful Isle of Portland (11 miles). Inland, take a visit to Monkey World (10.5 miles) and The Tank Museum (11 miles). The area is associated with Thomas Hardy, his birthplace is in Higher Bockhampton (9 miles) and his home in Dorchester (7 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely large house. Perfect for our holiday however a few tweaks were needed and resolved by the owner quickly. Nice treat that the housekeeper came at the start of week 2 to change the beds and refresh the towels. Would definitely stay there again

Thyme Cottage has a very well equipped kitchen (except not enough dishwasher tabs), lots of books and games and a good space for a family holiday. Great walks straight from the cottage. But the mattresses are uncomfortable, some mugs and glasses were grubby and there was dog poo in the garden.

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.

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.
