The Old Lookout, Shortlake Farm, Osmington is a small stone built building set on a hill at Shortlake Farm just to the south of the village. It is available for short breaks October to March and weekly from May – September.

It 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 Sunray 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.
