Enjoying a tranquil location in the Dorset countryside, this beautiful 18th-century mid-row stone cottage has been lovingly updated to provide cosy and inviting family accommodation in idyllic surroundings.

Brimming with character, this 18th century stone cottage is a cosy bolthole for family holidays by the Dorset coast. In the lounge, an inglenook fireplace houses a wood burner for cosy evenings spent beneath the beams and outside, a pretty garden bordered by colourful flower beds backs onto a wooded hillside for peaceful al fresco meals in the summer. Located just outside of the pretty village of Osmington, the property is just a short stroll from the local café and shop and only half a mile from the stunning South West Coast Path.

Spend relaxing evenings beside the roaring wood burner in the cosy lounge, which retains its heavily-beamed ceiling and large inglenook fireplace with later additions of a Bose Bluetooth speaker, iPod dock, Smart TV and DVD to keep everyone entertained. Prepare meals in the sunny tiled kitchen before eating together in the pine-floored dining room next door, where French doors open onto the garden for an al fresco feel when the sun is shining. Upstairs via cottage-style stairs, there are three bedrooms (a king-size, twin and single) and a bathroom, all with reduced height at the eaves. There is also a wet room on the ground floor. Stepping outside, the rear garden has been beautifully planted with colourful beds and borders and backs onto a wild wooded hillside, perfect for summer meals surrounded by nature. Perfect for dogs with walks at the end of the lane straight up onto the downs. There is parking on the village lane.

The ancient village of Osmington is a pretty collection of thatched cottages surrounded by beautiful rolling Dorset countryside. Stock up on supplies at Craig’s Farm Dairy (1 mile) or enjoy a hearty meal out at the Smugglers Inn (approx. 1.8 miles) or, for a wider range of shops and eateries, head to the bustling seaside resort of Weymouth (5 miles). Keen walkers should join the South West Coast Path at Osmington Mills, heading east towards Ringstead Bay (2 miles) or west to Weymouth (5 miles) to relax on its sandy beach or visit the popular Sea Life Adventure Park.

Comfortable cottage in a great location; great for dog walking and within easy reach of the sea. Sadly the village pub had closed permanently the week before our stay.

Reviewed by Philippa 26th July 2019

A very pretty cottage in a typical dorset village, with 2 spacious downstairs rooms and plenty of space to enjoy dinner around the large table! Beautiful walks from the door - to the coast path, or up the escarpment to the white horse.

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.
