About Alison R
We are a retired couple who fell in love with Osmington and its surrounding landscape when our daughter moved there. We now live in rural Devon but get much pleasure from the beautiful countryside and coast line in the Weymouth area. We have a family history in renovating property and brought our expertise and experience to bear when we renovated Melcombe.
Why Alison R chose Osmington
The cottage is a great place to be whatever the time of year. When we renovated it in 2012 we retained the lovely period features such as the iron fireplace in the top bedroom, and the Aga in the country kitchen but added a wood burning stove for cosy winters and a hob / oven for summer.
What makes this House unique
Stunning walks up in the surrounding hills or a walk to the coast or simply meandering around the village and finishing at the local pub.

Had a great week at Melcombe Cottage, great location and ideal for a family getaway. 😊
Cottage was perfect for our needs, having a luxury bedroom with ensuite downstairs for my dad. Every room was beautifully furnished. Fab kitchen. Lovely village. So quiet. Few minutes walk to village pub for nice dinner and beautiful walks from cottage, especially the coast path with the view of Portland, stunning. Easy access to Weymouth and Purbeck. I'm sure we'll be back.
Lovely cottage, beautiful location
We spent a wonderful week exploring the beautiful Dorset countryside. The cottage was clean and very well equipped and the beds were comfy too! Would highly recommend and hopefully we’ll be back.
A lovely week away in a beautiful village
Beautiful Dorset Cottage
Beautiful cottage in a quiet village. Tastefully decorated throughout - all mod cons and a very well equipped kitchen. We had a dog with us and there are fabulous walks right from the front door. There is no need to drive to find great eating as a walk across fields takes you to a fab pub (The Springhead in Sutton Poyntz - 1.5 miles) or a walk along the coastal path to another (The Smuggler's Inn at Osmington Mills - 1.2 miles.) The Sky Fox in Osmington 4 minute walk from the cottage is great as well. The area is beautiful with loads to see and do!
Fabulous cosy cottage
We had a wonderful stay at Melcombe cottage. The cottage had everything we needed and more!
The walks in the area are stunning. Easy reach of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door and some amazing walks on the Coastal Path.
Thank you so much for the welcome hamper goodies! We will definitely be booking again.
The cottage is situated at the heart of the picturesque Dorset village of Osmington and is surrounded by thatched cottages.It is a short walk to the stunning Jurassic coast or up into the hills to the Osmington white horse.
Weymouth, with its family friendly sandy beach, harbour and marina, is a 3 mile drive. Or Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are approx 12 miles away.
