Situated in the heart of the village of Osmington, and just a mile from the Jurassic Coast, this superb semi-detached and thatched converted barn is the perfect retreat for friends or couples..
Granary Cottage is the ideal hideaway for friends or couples looking to relax and enjoy a break near the coast in South Dorset. It is conveniently situated within easy reach of Weymouth with its famous sandy beach, and the county town of Dorchester with its museums, cinemas, shops and restaurants. The village of Osmington is well located for excellent walks in all directions. A pleasant stroll down to Osmington Mills affords an opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views across Weymouth Bay and to the Isle of Portland, and access to the coastal path. The famous artist John Constable spent his honeymoon here in 1816 during which time he completed his painting of Weymouth Bay which now hangs in the National Gallery in London. Carved into the hillside near the village, is a figure of King George III on horseback, with the chalk figure showing the King riding his horse Adonis which was cut into the ground to commemorate the Royal visits to Weymouth and the prosperity they brought to the area.
The comfortable accommodation includes an attractive open-plan sitting area, with its separate dining area and kitchen all situated on the first floor of this historic thatched cottage. Downstairs is the sumptuous super-king size bedroom which easily converts to two single beds for friends sharing, with a free-standing copper bath, perfect for an indulgent soak; along with an en-suite shower room. Outside there is a pretty raised terrace with garden furniture which offers the perfect spot for enjoying morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.
Nearby Blue Flag Awarded Weymouth Beach and its large bay are certainly worth a visit, and the place to enjoy a tasty fish and chip supper in one of the seafront or harbour side restaurants. When staying at Granary Cottage you will be spoilt for choice when looking for attractions and eateries in the wider area.
One well-behaved dog welcome (small additional charge).
There are stone steps leading down from the car parking area and then up to the front door.

Thank you for a lovely stay at Granary Cottage. We had everything we needed in this beautiful cottage. We had lots of lovely walks - including West bay and Ringstead to Durdle Door. We ate lots of yummy food, especially The Smugglers Inn and Barretts fish and chip shop. WE saw in the New Yera on the sofa with a bottle of fizz! Thank you.

What a lovely place to stay - everything you need and very comfortable. Great shower and bath. Bread and butter was a lovely touch. Recommend Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door together as close by. Corfe Castle also a must - good cheese scones and dog friendly! Thank you from the three of us!

Loved our visit to granary cottage for a birthday weekend in Dorset. Even in cold weather, the cottage is beautiful and was a great base from which to explore. The very generous Christmas welcome pack was much appreciated. The two local pubs, The Smugglers Inn and The Springhead are definitely worth a visit. Both have good beers and great food. Thank you for a great Christmas we will always remember and for making the cottage so christmassy for us.
