Osmington village, is situated on the Jurassic coastline of Dorset, just 6 miles from Weymouth wher you will find an glorious 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.
Dorset has many claims to fame including the iconic Hovis advert, the best-selling Famous Five Books, and the award winning drama ‘Broadchurch’. Visit Shaftesbury and you’ll find a very recognisable street, Gold Hill. This cobbled street was use in the 1970’s Hovis TV advert featuring a boy pushing a bike up the hill. Walking up/down this familiar hill you’d be forgiven for humming or whistling 'New World Symphony' which accompanied the TV advert.
Enid Blyton’s ‘The Famous Five’ series featured Dorset locations such as the Isle of Purbeck and Poole Harbour, with Anne, Dick, Georgina, Julian, and Timmy the dog having their adventures and enjoying a few ginger beers along the way.
The cliffs and beach at West Bay were used as the backdrop to the ITV crime drama ‘Broadchurch’. Retrace the steps of David Tennant and Olivia Coleman by visiting this stunning section of the Dorset coast.
The Jurassic Coast is over 90 miles of coastline covering from East Devon to Dorset. Recognised as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, The Jurassic Coast, quite rightly, joins other well-known World Heritage Sites such as the Great Barrier Reef (Australia) and the Grand Canyon (USA). It is easy to see why this coast is so popular when it allows visitors to experience a fascinating walk through history.
We hope you have a great Dorset break!
