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 pub 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 Sly Fox (0.5 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.
