A characterful home-from-home, this property is just right for families or groups of friends looking to catch up on quality time and celebrate Dorset’s abundance of natural beauty.

This charming three-bedroom cottage is located on a quiet lane in Sutton Poyntz, with ample space for up to six people. With village amenities on your doorstep, plus a location almost equidistant between Weymouth and Dorchester, it’s the perfect base to explore the countryside, coastline and towns of this wonderful region.

A host of character features adorn this property, including original doors, beams, and staircases. With two sitting areas, there’s plenty of room to ensure everyone has their own space. The front sitting room has a flame effect fire and a TV, and the larger rear living room has a cosy log burner for those cooler nights in. The kitchen/dining room is charming with a flagstone floor and a Rayburn cooker; a true country cottage kitchen experience. There is also a downstairs WC for convenience. On the first floor are three bedrooms: an opulent king-size room with a wrought iron bedstead and Victorian fireplace, and two twin bedrooms. All share the bright family bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. Down a shared path, you can access the secluded stone terrace which is the perfect place to make the most of the fresh air; cook a meal on the BBQ or relax on the lawn area.

For those wishing to explore further afield, Weymouth (3.5 miles) is a popular destination with a wealth of things to see and do. Weymouth boasts one of the best beaches in West Dorset – ideal for eating an ice-cream (or two) – and for those interested in history, the Tudor House is not to be missed. The county town of Dorchester is 5.5 miles away and offers a wider range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Reviewed by Adrian 9th August 2019

Cottage location is great for exploring Dorset however Puddledock lane gets very muddy. The cottage was clean but would be improved with some freshening up especially the rear sitting room which is a little tired and grubby. The local pubs are good to visit with the children and walking at dusk is a treat bat spotting. There is a good level of equiRead morepment in the cottage however the Aga in the kitchen does mean a lot of cooking in the microwave. Hide

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
