The property

Located in the heart of the centuries old village of Osmington near Weymouth is Lychgate Cottage, a beautiful traditional thatched cottage dating back to C1500.

This two bedroomed chocolate box cottage has so much charm and character.

Admire the beamed ceiling and exposed stonework in the sitting room as you unwind on the corner sofa.

Enjoy the peace of seclusion of the lawned garden at the front of the cottage or on the patio area on warm summer’s evening.

Leading onto a patio garden there is a lower sitting room with another TV and Wii console for games.

Grey stone thatched cottages in this beautiful location are bordered by winding village lanes.

The village is well served with Craig's Farm Dairy where you can buy fresh cow’s milk and their speciality ice-cream - arguably the best in the county!

Adjacent to Lychgate Cottage is St Osmund's Church, sections of which date back to 1200, a must visit location to marvel at local history.

Keen ramblers and walkers alike are spoilt with the choice of discovering the surrounding coast at Ringstead and Osmington Mills.

In the height of the summer the pebbly beach at Ringstead is often quiet.

The Smugglers at Osmington Mills is a famous hostelry serving good food.

Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are around a 10 mile drive and the award-winning beach at Weymouth is around 6 miles, perfect for indulging in sand castle making on the golden sandy beach or enjoying an ice cream at one of the many beach side cafes, making a perfect day out.

The character, charm and costal setting of Lychgate Cottage is the perfect place to spend your holiday in Dorset.

About the location


Osmington village, sits on the Jurassic coastline of Dorset, just 6 miles from Weymouth with it’s infamous beach and historic harbour and just 11 miles from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Home to the famous Chalk hillside carving of George III on horseback, cut into the hillside to commemorate the Royal visits to Weymouth, this landmark can be seen from miles away. It is also the place that John Constable spent his honeymoon in 1816 and where he completed his painting of Weymouth Bay that now hangs in the National Gallery. The South West Coastal path runs through Osmington Mills, a tiny hamlet on the edge of Osmington. Here many walkers start their coast path walks at the Smugglers inn, where reputedly there are historic connections to smuggling. Be sure to visit to find out all the stories. A short drive will see you reach a local convenience store at Preston. Weymouth offers a larger variety of shopping, eating and entertainment choices.

Region Information
