    “I would thoroughly recommend The Courthouse as a cosy yet spacious accommodation.”

    With a beautiful walled garden. Dog friendly which is a huge bonus. Friendly people and within easy distance of lots of fun things. Portland Bill, climbing, monkey world, Weymouth, coastal walks, skateboarding and body boarding in the sea. It’s a brilliant holiday destination.

The property

This holiday home is a spacious, well presented and furnished character detached property with a sunny enclosed rear garden in Sutton Poyntz, Weymouth.

The Court House is so named as it housed, in medieval times, the court when Sutton Poyntz was the local regional centre, and later the court house for the Weld Estate.

A renovated detached barn conversion has a large kitchen and dining area, rustle up a tasty snack and then relax with a drink in the sitting area complete with exposed beams or open the patio doors and enjoy sitting in the beautiful garden.

The Courthouse has three bedrooms one with en-suite.

Sutton Poyntz retains the street plan and many of the stone houses from this period and from when it formed the inspiration for "Overcombe" in Thomas Hardy's "The Trumpet Major".

Today it offers the peace and quiet of village life with the sound of ducks and rustling willows from the village mill pond.

A very short stroll takes you past the mill pond to the Springhead Pub which offers local ales, chilled wine and a varied menu, a shop is also within walking distance.

The Court House is an excellent centre for walking with the famous White Horse and the South West Coast path immediately to the north of the village.

A one mile walk brings you to the sea at Bowleaze Cove whilst the golden sands of Weymouth and its picturesque harbour are a short drive or bus journey away.

The Court House is well located to explore the whole of the Jurassic Heritage coast with Purbeck, from Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge Bay all the way to Swanage to the east and Abbotsbury, Chesil Beach, Bridport and Lyme Regis to the west.

A beautiful stone detached property in a stunning village location this is the ideal property for coastal break away.
