The Old Lookout

The Old Lookout

This is a small stone built building set on a hill at Shortlake Farm just to the south of the village.

The Old Lookout, Shortlake Farm, Osmington DT3 6EF





The Lookout is built on the site of a WWII gun battery, and commands panoramic views over Weymouth & Portland, and out across the English Channel.

It is located just off a quiet no-through-road, up a gravel track, and is surrounded by pasture. As well as the outstanding views, the SW Coastpath is nearby for walks into Weymouth (3m) and Lulworth Cove (7m). Osmington village with The Sly Fox pub, and a couple of small shops, is about a 5 minutes walk away. The walk to Shortlake Farm's private beach takes just 10 minutes or so across the fields.

The Lookout now benefits from a Shepherd's Hut in the garden.  This sleeps 2 (double) and makes the property more versatile for our guests, as now there is the option of the main double bed, the shepherd's hut double and the bunks in the conservatory.

 

 

Conservatory

This includes a dining table and chairs (6) and a seating area.
