House in Osmington, near Weymouth, Dorset, United Kingdom

We moved two years ago from Oxford to the lovely county of Dorset on the south coast.
Having had twelve very successful exchanges during our years in Oxford, we now look forward to introducing exchange partners to the beauty of the Dorset coast and countryside.

 Our house is a spacious stone cottage set in a large beautiful garden, with the ruin of a sixteenth century manor house in the corner. Downstairs it has a long, beamed sitting room /dining room and study, a large modern kitchen / living room recently converted, a conservatory and a utility room.
Upstairs there is a main bedroom suite with superking bed, sitting area with double bed sofa, dressing room and large bathroom. The two other bedrooms each has its own bathroom. One has a kingsize bed and full size bunk beds, the other has a kingsize bed.
The house is set on one side of the valley forming the village of Osmington and has wonderful views over the Dorset hills. The garden is secluded and private, looked after by a gardener, and contains play equipment for our grandchildren. It has a patio for outside eating, with seating for eight plus.

  • 2 year old Standard poodle


At home we both love to read, go to the theatre and concerts, eat out at our favourite restaurants, go on long walks to explore the countryside with our two year old standard poodle and take part in village activities. Jenny likes gardening, planning interior decorating and visiting historical sites ; John is very keen on computers, electronics and aeroplanes.
We love entertaining our large extended family.
We have always very much enjoyed travelling and visiting new countries.
