Blossom Cottage is a thatched cottage in the picturesque village of Osmington situated next to Craig's Farm Dairy, tea room and farm shop, perfectly placed for buying fresh milk, cheeses and wonderful ice cream. With exposed beams, spacious interior, wood burner in the lounge and a conservatory it caters for you perfectly whatever season you decide to visit. The pub is a leisurely 10 minute walk which dates back to the 13th century and is very popular with large outdoor seating area in which to take in the views of coast and countryside. Weymouth has a sandy beach and lots of places to eat out but there are many villages close to hand that are very pretty and have good pubs. On my list to visit would be Sutton Poyntz, Langton Herring, Abbotsbury, West Bay, West Lulworth and Kimmeridge with many more to discover inland.
The accommodation at Blossom Cottage comprises of a sitting room with electric log burner, Freeview TV, DVD player and WiFi enabled throughout. The kitchen comes equipped with a gas hob and electric oven, microwave, fridge, table top freezer, dishwasher, breakfast bar and washing machine as well as a range of accessories and utensils. The conservatory is large and also has the dining table and doors lead out to a patio area and the garden beyond. A cloakroom rounds off the ground floor. There are four bedrooms upstairs arranged as a king size double with en suite shower room, a twin room, a single with pull-out stacker bed and a final single bedroom. The bathroom has a bath with hand held shower attachment, basin and toilet. A cot and highchair can be provided upon request.
Outside is a rear garden including a lawned area and patio complete with furniture. There is allocated parking for one car. Your fuel, power, bed linen and towels are all included in the price.
Osmington is a small village with narrow streets lined with picturesque thatched cottages. It is an excellent base if you are a keen walker or lover of the countryside, it lies on the south west coast path, and the views you get from walks in pretty much any direction are spectacular. From the village itself you get great views over Weymouth Bay towards Portland.Read more
Dominating the view inland is the famous Osmington White Horse, built in 1808 bu John Ranier, James Hamilton and John Wood to honour the king (George III, who was a frequent visitor to the area). The figure on the hillside depicts the King riding a horse but due to illness the King never returned to Weymouth and therefore never saw the landmark. The landmark is 85 metres long and 100 metres high and has recently been restored to its former glory.
Osmington Mills, just along from Osmington itslef, was a small fishing village and the local pub is aptly named as The Smugglers and is well worth a visit. The walk is again picturesque and will take roughly 10 minutes from Osmingotn village.Read less
