  • "Perfectly private, peaceful and accessible for both walks and drives into the town centre."

    Lovely space, well equipped, modern with all we needed. Just perfect

  • "I wasn’t made to feel welcome."

    . property was very cold on arrival, fridge and oven turned off so had to work it out .. and then noisy building works operating on the property directly on site which meant I could not enjoy a Cup of tea in the garden when I came home or had to leave the property by 8:30am to avoid the noise. It would have been cautious to have been warned of this before my booking as I was trying to have a tranquil break which is what the booking advertised.

  • "Roman lodge was a lovely stay."

    The property is in a very quiet location which is perfect for relaxing but still close enough to Weymouth and all the facilities you need. The lodge itself was very comfortable, the space was well thought out. The beds and bedding were proper quality. We rate this property very highly. Only a couple of suggestions which are minor would be a second tv in one of the bedrooms, the fridge freezer needs a defrost which is understandable due to the busy season not having time to be done- could a small stand up freezer be provided or something on the kitchen counter? And finally another one of those delightful lounge chairs which are the most wonderful chairs we’ve sat in! Overall a stunning stay and we will return

  • "The lodge was very clean and fitted to a high standard."

    We had a wonderful stay in Osmington and the lodge provided the perfect base for us to travel to our favourite beaches, including Ringstead Bay and Studland. We also enjoyed the walk to Sutton Poyntz to the Springhead and to the Smugglers Inn.

  • "The cottage we stayed at was perfect for our needs."

    There were three in our party, plus a dog, but we could have easily taken six. We walked straight out of the cottage and right into the countryside from the front door. Because we had the dog, we were not so bothered about spending time on the beach, and really enjoyed the country walks. It was possible to walk to the beach from the cottage, but it was a little bit of a trek, and wouldn't have been easy with a family. However, very easy access for driving to all of Dorset's local attractions - Abbotsbury, Jurassic coast, Ringstead Lulworth Cove/Durdle Door. It was very easy to have the dog there - there is a stated preference for animals not to go upstairs, but it was quite easy to block the stairs off to prevent this. The area surrounding the cottage was pretty much enclosed - while we wouldn't have left the dog wandering around by herself (as she might have found a way out), while we were sitting in the garden, it was very easy to keep her safe. The cottage was in a very secluded location, so it wasn't a big worry if the dog barked occasionally. The house had all the ameneties (TV with lots of channels & streaming services, dishwasher, two bathrooms, indoor & outdoor eating areas, patio furniture, board games, books) we needed to entertain us if it was raining , or if we stayed in in the evening, or if we wanted to sit outside enjoying the sunshine. The beds were really comfortable, and we all slept well. The Smuggler's Inn pub was very easy to walk to, and does great food, & has an enormous outdoor seating area. There was a handy village shop & a farm shop within 5 mins walk, & small local supermarkets were a close drive nearby. We had a very enjoyable stay, and will be back.

  • "Lovely clean and cosy lodge which was well equipped and close to plenty to do."

    In a peaceful and pretty location with good walks from the door. Only improvement I would suggest are hooks on the back of the bathroom doors.

  • "The impression I got from the property was that it was designed to maximise profit above comfort."

    It slept 6 but...... 1.Comfortable space for only three on settee (one siting sideways to TV). 2.Inadequate fridge space to feed 6 but OK for the two of us. 3. The Ice box in the fridge was completely iced up (no auto defost???) Bedrooms were very comfortable It would have been a very much better holiday if the space had been configured so that the whole of the ground floor was living space with a decent sized kitchen with fridge freezer and fitted drawers as cupboard space. On a personal note, we are both in our late 80's and bending over to reach into the low-level cupboards (and fridge) was difficult.

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Roman Lodge."

    It is ideally situated, not far from Weymouth and close to Lulworth Cove and Durdle door. The lodge is clean and comfortable and well set out for a family holiday. A great holiday!

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.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Christmas
