Pitt Cottage is a picture postcard thatched cottage like those out of one of Thomas Hardy's novels. The cottage location is unique, standing majestically in half an acre of land offering panoramic sea views and complete seclusion. Sweeping lawns with hedges on either side reinforces privacy. To the rear of the property is a wooded area which attracts birds and wild animals. The sun setting on the horizon is a breath-taking sight; Ringstead Bay being famous for its sunrises and sunsets. The Bay is partially owned by the National Trust so most of the area is outstandingly beautiful, unspoilt and highly sought after. The coastal path which stretches from Weymouth to Lulworth offers the enthusiastic rambler a breath-taking walk to remember. A short walk will also take you to a picnic area and a seasonal shop where you are able to purchase your daily paper, essential provisions and partake in a nice cup of tea accompanied by freshly caught seafood sandwiches. A relatively short drive to the nearby resort town of Weymouth will provide you with high street shops and entertainment if required.

About the Location

Ringstead is a small, but perfectly formed Hamlet surrounded by beautiful National Trust Land and just steps away from the sea. The loveliest thing about Ringstead Village is that it has its very own bay which, as of yet, many tourists haven’t found! Ringstead Bay is a glorious shingle beach, perfect for dog walking, since dogs are allowed all year round, BBQs on the beach, and swimming during the summer months. There are also some great reefs that are uncovered at low tide, which make it the perfect spot for crabbing.

Overlooked by the impressive white chalk cliffs of White Noth, Ringstead Bay affords stunning views. A walk along the cliffs will reward you with fantastic views of Portland and along to the seaside town of Weymouth. Sailing is popular here and hunting for fossils is a particularly great activity for children. The grassy area above the beach also enables them to run around and play, before enjoying an ice cream at the café, which is open during the summer.

The South West Coastal Path runs through Ringstead, across the bay. A stay in one of our lovely Ringstead holiday cottages would not be complete without a walk along the famous coast path, which leads straight to the Smugglers Inn. This charming pub is nestled by the sea in the next bay, Osmington Mills. The pub was once the home of the leader of the most notorious gang of smugglers in the 18thand 19th centuries and is the perfect place to sit with a glass of wine or fine Dorset ale and soak up the views and colourful history of the area.
