The property

Tucked away on a no through lane that ends in a footpath onto the surrounding hills and nestled right in the heart of the village of Sutton Poyntz is Fox Cottage, a delightful thatched 18th century cottage next door to the owner’s home.

Set over two floors, this stone cottage has plenty of cottage charm with stable doors, stone walls and deep window recesses, making perfect window seats.

Through the front stable door, you will find a cosy sitting room with stone fireplace and gas coal effect woodburner where you can look forward to cosying up in an evening to catch up on your favourite television show or read a book.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare some delicious meals that, in the warmer months, can be eaten alfresco in the courtyard garden.

Off the kitchen you will find a twin bedroom ideal for younger guests, and a shower room.

The spiral staircase in the sitting room leads to the main bedroom where you will be welcomed with a gorgeous window seat, perfect for the first cup of tea or coffee in the morning whilst gazing out of the window.

This large bedroom provides a cosy retreat where you can relax and unwind after a busy day exploring.

Step out of the front door of Fox Cottage and you find yourself with a delightful number of walking options as you are set right in the heart of the Dorset countryside.

Wander through the village of Sutton Poyntz and enjoy watching the ducks on the village pond and views over the white horse that is carved into the hillside.

Take a night off from cooking and visit the local pub for a tasty meal.

Be sure to visit the world UNESCO heritage sites of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door just 11 miles away or enjoy a day of sandy toes, fish and chips and ice cream on Weymouth’s award winning beach, 3.5 miles to the south.

Fox Cottage is great for couples or small families to come and enjoy the Jurassic Coast.
