Woodlands Cottage nestles amongst the trees on the edge of Ringstead Wood, which lies about half a mile from the sea. You can catch glimpses of the sea through the trees, which are at the rear of the garden. The very large fully enclosed lawned garden faces south and is ideal for children and dogs to play in.  Ringstead Bay offers glorious walks along the coastal path. The area has an appeal through all seasons. A short walk from the cottage will take to a picnic area, where you will find a seasonal shop for provisions and the early morning paper. If you enjoy picking wild berries, the woods are full of blackberry bushes just right for a blackberry and apple pie if you feel like cooking a treat for the family during your memorable holiday. Woodlands cottage is an ideal retreat for a relaxing getaway. A lazy drive into Weymouth will take you to all the fashionable restaurants and various entertainments, which are always on offer. Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Kimmeridge Bay are all worth a visit along with other attractions like Monkey World and the Bovington Tank Museum.

Woodlands is in a wonderful location it's quiet, pretty and secluded. The property is close to the sea and through the trees you can see the sea, truly beautiful. Woodlands has everything you could wish for, spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, lovely lounge, nice kitchen come diner with all white goods.

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.
