Not content with simply being surrounded by one of the UK's designated Area's of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so beautifully resonated in Thomas Hardy's works, our cottages are both located within a mile of the stunning dog-friendly Jurassic Coast so you will be able to enjoy a huge variety of fabulous walks.
Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
The designated Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompasses the entire surrounding area of Weymouth and includes Osmington, where both Corner Cottage and the White Horse are located.
Rather than just one beautiful landscape to shout about, the Dorset AONB is a collection of beautiful landscapes - each with different histories, ways of working and stories to tell.
