Second day here in Dorset, so far we’ve been really fortunate to have impeccable weather!
In the garden again at the cottage we had fruit for breakfast and drank tea in the morning sun.
After consulting the map we decided to head off towards Weymouth to the beach today.
On our way to find it we stumbled across Osmington – the chalk horse it’s known for. We found a really really dusty and chalky driveway and headed down – unbeknownst to us it was a private camping site which we managed to secure day passes for! I’m glad we did.
They had an on site bakery, shop and we purchased a huge loaf of bread, some cheese and drinks for a beach picnic.
On our way down to the beach we found chickens, pigs and cows all free grazing and max had fun running around the open fields!
The beach itself was pebbly and steep steps took you down to it, not the best beach we’ve been on but max really enjoyed himself eating yoghurt naked and paddling in the waves. We also tried to bury daddy in stones.
We headed to the local butchers on our way home called “Parsons” as recommended in the Boutique retreats accommodation guide. We bought two steaks and cooked them up on the BBQ for tea.
The garden at the strawberry thief makes for perfect al fresco dining and whilst Max was safety tucked up in bed asleep we drank wine and ate good food.
The kitchen is so well stocked too, we’ve hardly had to worry about the usual spices and things like cling film and napkins are all to hand!
Just going to finish this bottle of wine and plan tomorrow’s activities – we think Longleat may be on the cards! As I’ve always wanted to go.
Anyone else been to Dorset or planning a trip soon? Definitely worth checking out Boutique retreats as they have cottages all over the UK mainly Devon, Cornwall and Dorset!
Love Becks & Nandy xx
