Emmies Cottage is a period detached cottage built from stone in 1845 and renovated to a high standard offering a wonderful holiday cottage experience in Osmington. Osmington itself has Craig's Farm Dairy, a tea room and farm shop, perfectly placed for buying fresh milk, cheeses and wonderful ice cream. The pub, which dates back to the 13th century, is very popular with large outdoor seating area in which to take in the views of coast and countryside. The walking here is spectacular with glorious coastal walks available leading to Ringstead, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. Walking west will take you into Weymouth and the 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. Lots of places to visit close by with the car as well including the Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World.
The accommodation at Emmies Cottage comprises of a sitting room with open fire, TV with full Sky package and WiFi enabled throughout. There is a separate study giving you more options for relaxation and the kitchen has a dining area and is equipped with an AGA, electric hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. A conservatory with yet more comfy seating and a shower room round off the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms all arranged as doubles. There is a bathroom with bath, separate shower, basin and toilet.
Outside is a courtyard garden with seating. There is on road parking available to the front of the property. 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
