  • "Very comfortable and well equipped house in a great position for exploring the countryside and coastal areas as well as being within easy distance of both Weymouth and Dorchester."

    Watersports at Portishead a winner, great variety of beaches

  • "A nice property and we enjoyed our stay."

    A nice big kitchen table, and nice comfortable lounge with large tv. The upstairs shower door, sealant, and controller need maintenance (only ranges between pretty hot to very hot). The downstairs shower was very nice but needs fresh sealant too. The kitchen was nice to cook in with good sized fridge freezer. The aga was nice to use but the two ring hob was lacking in power and we couldn't get the outer ring on at all.

    Thank you for your useful feedback Adrian, the plumber has been contacted to look at the shower and door asap. Will investigate the hob too. Property Owner

  • "Emmies was such a lovely cottage!"

    Beautiful location, extremely clean, easy parking, very quiet road but close enough to all the excitement this part of Dorset has to offer. We loved how pet-friendly it was; loved the kitchen and underfloor heating, loved that the house had a good Smart TV, wi-fi, and a washing machine/tumble dryer. The beds and seating were very comfortable and nicely furnished, and there were plenty of plug sockets for our family of 5 to plug our devices in to charge. Also really liked the personally written guest information folder - that was a nice touch. The only thing I could suggest to improve Emmies would be a little welcome pack of something like a few local biscuits and a small milk carton to accompany the tea and coffee sachets that were supplied. After a long drive, it’s nice to be able to just sit and make a cup of tea! This is a small detail, as everything else was just right.

  • "A very spacious and beautiful renovated cottage with historical features."

    There is plenty of space and a place to work with a laptop or read a book (well, there are many places in the house). There is a dedicated desk and office executive chair, so i had an excellent work-mix-holiday week. We stayed for 2 weeks, and our dog also loved the freedom. The kitchen is super equipment which high-quality appliances. I learned how to operate an AGA and never look back! The property hosts are super helpful and answer phone calls or text messages. There are many hidden gems and walkways. by foot - within 15 mins, you can be hidden in a forest walkway or access the coastal / beach view. With the car, you reach many popular locations within 15-30 mins drive Dorest has to offer. .e.g Luthorw Cove, Dorchester, Upwey. Preston/Weymouth etc. We will be back for a more extended stay next time.

  • "This cottage is lovely."

    It has everything we needed, very clean, spacious, homely and well positioned. We did book to take our dog but didn’t in the end but he would have loved it. However there is no garden to speak of just a small courtyard so be aware of that.

  • "A perfect cottage for a family holiday."

    The garage utility room was very useful.

  • "It’s a pretty cottage in a beautiful village and we were very happy during our week there."

    As a ‘Townie’ cooking on an Aga for the first time was a challenge! But I soon got used to it and now understand why so many people swear by them. I hope we can come back to Emmie’s one day.

  • "An extremely well equipped cottage with a brillant selection of games and books for little and bigs ones!"

    Which was more than enough space for my family. Very comfortable living room space to relax in after a busy day exploring Dorset. A little too far for us to walk to the pub (closest one just at the end of the road currently closed) but lovely farm shop within Walking distance. Would very happily stay again at the lovely Emmies.

    Great location.

  • "Such a lovely cottage in the village of Osmington."

    Perfect location with lots of local walks. The beds were extremely comfy and the property had lots of pots and pans for those who like to cook when away. More than comfortable for 6 people. We will look back on our time at Emmies very fondly. Would recommend to anyone considering.

The property

Preston 1.5 miles.

Emmies is a magnificent period cottage resting in the tranquil village of Osmington near Preston.

Built in 1845, this semi-detached property has been lovingly renovated to a high standard whilst retaining its original cottage appeal, offering an excellent base for families eager to uncover Dorset’s hidden gems, children will also be delighted to find a plethora of books and toys to keep them entertained.

Discover the spacious kitchen/diner for preparing all your home-cooked meals, taking advantage of the generous AGA cooker and electric hob, whilst the extendable dining table offers a charming spot to enjoy family mealtimes.

From the kitchen/diner you can access the conservatory, perfect for a quiet read away from the group, or carry on through the French style patio doors to the enclosed courtyard, ideal for a morning coffee within peaceful surroundings.

Spend your evenings unwinding in the sitting room, with a large open fireplace for those chilly winter months, plus a wall-mounted TV to enjoy all your favourite TV shows.

Climb the impressive oak staircase to reach the first floor and take a pick from three charming bedrooms, including the master with king-size bed and two doubles, served by a traditionally styled bathroom with bath and separate walk-in shower unit.

Across the landing is a Juliet balcony which overlooks a lovely stone trough fish pond, providing a pleasant view to begin each morning.

Just a short stroll away from Emmies is a playground next to the village hall, from there you can also find a lovely farm shop (Craig’s dairy).

Just over a mile from the property rests Osmington Mills, home to a traditional pub called The Smugglers, where you can also enjoy cliff top walks and find coves to explore.

Take the short drive into Weymouth to enjoy numerous bars, restaurants, shops and activities, as well as the stunning three mile stretch of sandy beach, hosting a number of traditional seaside entertainment during the summer months, including donkey rides, fun fair and crazy golf.

If exploration takes you further afield then the fossil hunters land of Charmouth and Lyme Regis is well worth a day trip!

If you’re looking for a holiday to remember for that special occasion or just a family getaway from the daily routine, choose Emmies.
