This holiday home is a spacious, well presented and furnished character detached property with a sunny enclosed rear garden. 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. 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 Sourth 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. Inland you can visit Dorchester, Hardy's Wessex, the attractions of the Tank Museum and Monkey World and charming villages such as Milton Abbas and of course the Giant at Cerne Abbas.

About this location

The Dorset region

Dorset is a county with lots to offer, from astounding natural landmarks such as the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the beautiful Golden Cap and the popular natural cove at Lulworth to the lively seaside towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Lyme Regis. A week (or longer) self catering holiday in Dorset gives you the time to really soak up the history, feel and beauty of the region, taste the fine local cuisine and enjoy a break from the hectic pace of town or city life.

Upwey

Sutton Poyntz is a beautiful area of Dorset set amongst beautiful countryside and underneath the shadow of the Osmington White Horse.

"Lovely accommodation in a really pretty village."

The Court house is a beautiful house which was very comfortable . The enclosed garden was perfect for our two young children. Sutton Poyntz is an idyllic place with a nice pub in very close proximity with a play area, chip shop also a short walk away. Weymouth beach was a short drive away, so location was ideal. We had fantastic weather which was an added bonus.
