The home is situated within the sought after village of Osmington, a charming Dorset village with a strong sense of community and vibrant village hall offering a full calendar of activities throughout the year. It is one of Dorsets most famous villages; at nearby Osmington Mills, smugglers in the 18th century used the precipitous cliff faces and hidden cove-ways to store contraband. Today, its maritime history is remembered in the form of the Smugglers Inn which stands on the cliff edge and is a popular local haunt, offering unrivalled views of the world famous Jurassic Coastline. There is an ancient thirteenth century church. The seaside town of Weymouth is 4 miles away where there are several superb marina facilities. Weymouth is nationally renowned for its sailing facilities, together with its lovely sandy beach and safe swimming. The county town of Dorchester is 7 miles distant and from both Weymouth and Dorchester there are regular train services to London (Waterloo 2.5 hours).
