Magnolia Cottage Osmington is a thatched cottage,unsurprisingly, in the pretty village of Osmington which is just 2 miles from Weymouth. With a cosy, quirky interior it is a great place for socialising. The pub is about a 20 minute walk along the coast path 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. Craig's Farm Dairy, tea room and farm shop is very close to the property so you are perfectly placed for buying fresh milk, cheeses and wonderful ice cream. 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 some 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 Magnolia Cottage Osmington comprises of an open plan living area with Smart TV, radio, iPod dock, WiFi, a selection of books and games and a dining table with seating for four. The kitchen comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. A cloakroom rounds off the ground floor. Upstairs you will find two bedrooms arranged as a king size double and a twin which can also be made up as a king size double upon request. The bathroom has a bath with hand held shower, separate shower, basin and toilet. A cot and highchair can be provided.
Outside is a patio near the entrance with furniture. There is allocated off road parking for two cars. 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
