Delightful Cottage in Beautiful Sutton Poyntz, Near Amazing Jurassic Coastline



Updated: 28-Oct-2016
3 bedroom cottage in charming, peaceful setting leading to village millpond with wonderful walks and within 2 miles of the beach.

Ebenezer Cottage is situated in Sutton Poyntz, Dorset,which lies in a horseshoe of hills, along which runs the South West Dorset Coastal Path. There are wonderful walks directly from the Cottage with access to the South West Coastal Path and Dorset Jubilee Trail. The village is near Weymouth with its golden sweeping beach, elegant Georgian seafront and delightfully picturesque old harbour. The County town of Dorchester is also close by. There are many other unspoilt beaches and idyllic secluded coves within easy reach including the famous Chesil beach, Ringstead Bay, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, West Bay, Golden Cap near Seatown and Lyme Regis for fossils and a dinosaur tour.

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.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests


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.
