About Cathy Varley

We lived in the village of Sutton Poyntz for sixteen years. It is where we had our two children and we have the most wonderful family memories of this beautiful village and surrounding area.

Cathy Varley purchased this house in 2004

Why Cathy Varley chose Sutton Poyntz

Ebenezer cottage is a hidden gem. Delightfully sunny with a private rear cottage style garden. It has a charm that we hope to be able to keep and enjoy for many years to come and we love being able to share that with our guests.

The most relaxing short break we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute gem. Nestled away alongside a stream, you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere. But with Civilisation actually just minutes away, it's easy to access everything you need. Cathy is a superb host and the cottage has everything you need. Prosecco and cake greeted us on arrival, along with fresh flowers. So many little personal touches which really do make all the difference. This cottage is very well equipped for children, our toddler very much enjoyed playing with the toys in the toy box and reading the many books. The cot, highchair and stair gates provided were an absoute bonus and made things a lot easier.

A short meander along the stream in front of the cottage brings you to an idyllic pond where you will find ducks and a welcoming pub! So many beautiful walks nearby with breathtaking scenery. This cottage is an absolute haven and we certainly hope to return!

A wonderful haven

  • 4 of 5

Myself, my husband and our 2 children Henry (3) and Holly (5months) have just returned from a weeks stay in your wonderful cottage. We felt so welcome and cosy. It was a real home from home in an idyllic setting. The cake and flowers were lovely and Henry enjoyed playing with the toys you left. He also enjoyed feeding his quack quacks. Our little girl slept soundly in your lovely cot and Henry did not want to leave and loved 'this new house'. Thanks for making us feel so welcome in your lovely home.

Nicola, Mark, Henry and Holly.

Exquisite Cottage in Delightful Location

  • 5 of 5

This stunning cottage provides all you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday in this beautiful peaceful village. This spacious property is spotless and furnished to a high standard. On our arrival we were greeted with fresh flowers and a large homemade cake and a welcome pack. We were fortunate to visit in June when the village flowers take your breath away. The walk from the cottage alongside the stream to the Mill pond is a must. The countryside walks from the village are lovely, yet the coast is only a short drive away. The owner provided first class service and we will no doubt return.

Overcombe is approximately 1.5 miles from the cottage and is the start of Weymouth's golden sweeping beach, which is approximately 1.5km long with donkey rides and children's activities at the far end. The bay is sheltered for swimmers and other water users benefit from the gradually sloping seabed giving shallow inshore waters.


The village is one of the most picturesque in Dorset and the cosy but spacious cottage is situated on its quiet millstream lane, which with its sunny private rear garden, provides a hidden escape. There are wonderful walks with access to the South West Coastal path providing breath taking views of the Jurassic coast.


Weymouth Railway Station is approximately 3.5 miles from the cottage with Dorchester Railway Station just over 5 miles.

There is a regular bus service from Weymouth to Sutton Poyntz.

Popular with families who enjoy trips to Weymouth or beyond but return each evening to the serenity and peace of the village.

Horse riding, golf, sailing, windsurfing and jet ski are available within five mile radius.
