Summer Lodge (SUMLOD)
Cottage | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Summer Lodge is a spacious newly built very high specification property located in the pretty Dorset village of Osmington less than a mile from the coast. It is truly luxurious with things most people only dream of having in their homes the main one being an indoor heated swimming pool (perfect whatever the time of year) with patio doors opening onto a large patio and decked are which is ideal for using in combination with the swimming pool when the sun is shining. You also have the benefit of a gym room housing a cross trainer and a running machine. If exercise is not your thing then why not make use of the games room with its full size pool table, arcade style games machine and juke box or just chill out in the adjacent lounge with its own cinema style flat screen TV. The huge kitchen / diner has solid granite work surfaces and attractive stone floors with mosaic detailing and the formal lounge has a feature gas stove and another large flat screen TV. Internally the property is a joy with its well thought out d?cor, furniture and attention to detail throughout. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite and the downstairs bedroom has an adjacent toilet plus use of the separate shower room near the swimming pool making this ideal for anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs. Venturing out from the cottage you will find the location perfect for walkers - pick from a gentle circular 2 mile walk which takes in the South West Coast path to a more demanding 10 mile walk encompassing the famous white chalk horse etched on a hillside. The village of Osmington has a pub just a few minutes walk away, The Sunray, which has a comfortable restaurant serving an extensive menu, bar serving real ales and a large garden with tables and children's play equipment. Craig's Dairy just a few minutes down the road sells the milk from cow to fridge within a few hours, along with ice creams and local producer provisions such as ham and chutneys. A Spar shop in Weymouth is just a few minutes car journey away. The nearest beach is a five minute drive away at Ringstead Bay, or five minutes further you may access the main long sandy resort beach at Weymouth, the nearest town, which has a good variety of restaurants, high streets shops and attractions. Summer Lodge is a real gem which we are proud to have on the books and is sure to be a big hit with all who are lucky enough to stay there.

The West Country region
Dorset is a county with lots to offer, from astounding natural landmarks such as the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the beautiful Golden Cap and the popular natural cove at Lulworth to the lively seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Lyme Regis. A week (or longer) self catering holiday in Dorset gives you the time to really soak up the history, feel and beauty of the region, taste the fine local cuisine and enjoy a break from the hectic pace of town or city life.
Osmington is a village just 4 miles outside of Weymouth which has bronze age settlements and is home to Craig's Dairy offering delicious local produce such as ice cream and clotted cream.

"Rude, unwelcoming owners ruin overpriced 3 star house - AVOID"
We may have been unlucky but from the very moment we met the owners to obtain the property keys they were quite rude, unwelcoming and treated us more like trespassers on their property. As a family h… More

"Hardly a village"
Do not assume from the property description that this house is in a quiet location. It is in fact on a busy main road. The accommodation is good, with plenty of space for us all and generally well equ… More
I am sorry if you felt we have mis-advertised the location of this property. The property description simply mentions a 'village location' as the property is indeed set within the village of Osmington. The property is not immediately next to the A road that runs through the village but is set back down a lane. On all of our property descriptions we try to be as factual as possible and we also place a Google map marker on the location to enable guests to see exactly where the property is located. We have very experienced bookings' staff who are always happy to answer any additional queries or help guests make a property selection prior to booking in relation to property facilities or location. Again I am sorry that you were disappointed with the location and thank you for your feedback. With best wishes Dream Cottages

"Just right for a large family"
A truly delightful house, plenty of space for 6 young children and six adults. Fenced garden and security gates gave us peace of mind when children playing outside. Everything was spot on. The swimmin… More
