This quintessentially English 18th-century thatched cottage is the perfect place for couples/families to enjoy a rural retreat and explore the many treasures that Dorset has to offer.

This cottage’s position means it is surrounded by rural tranquillity and has a wealth of countryside to explore right on its doorstep. The perfectly picturesque village of Sutton-Poyntz, with its thatched houses, duck pond and village amenities, make it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the county. Five miles south is the popular seaside resort of Weymouth with its long, sandy beach, various attractions and shopping opportunities. Further west you will find the unique Chesil Beach (8.5 miles) and the very special Abbotsbury Swannery (11 miles) where you can walk amongst the swans and their young. Or why not head out to the lighthouse at Portland Bill (13 miles) and enjoy the stunning views?

When you find this compact cottage tucked away up a little lane, you will fall in love with its wisteria-covered, stone exterior. Stepping inside, you will find yourself in the comfortable lounge with its stone fireplace and log effect gas burning stove – perfect for creating a cosy ambience of an evening. Moving towards the back of the property you will come to the modest, but amply equipped kitchen/diner, where a stable door lets in sunshine and fresh air, and exposed beams add character. Leading off of the kitchen/diner is the shower room and WC and a snug, twin bedroom. From the lounge, a spiral staircase leads up to the inviting, bedroom with king-size bed.

To the rear of the property, there is a lovely, sunny courtyard with pot plants and trailing ivy. With its garden furniture, this is the perfect place for some al fresco dining, if the weather allows. There is designated parking nearby.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size and 1 twin

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
