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.
