    “The bungalow and location were brilliant.”

    We were there at a very wet and muddy time with 2 dogs so we adjusted the furniture to block off the sitting room to keep carpets clean and dogs off furniture overnight!

The property

Woodlands Cottage is a secluded bungalow which is set amongst the trees on the edge of Ringstead Wood and lies about half a mile from the beach.

Glimpses of the sea can be seen through the trees in the garden.

The very large enclosed garden is laid to lawn and faces south.

It is ideal for dogs and children to play, this property feels like a real escape to the country.

From your door step and onto the local walking paths, you will find yourself in places like Ringstead Bay just a ½ miles away where there is a seasonal shop for provisions and the morning paper and a picnic area. Woodlands cottage is an ideal for a relaxing getaway retreat with it’s open plan style Kitchen, comfortable dining sitting room, you can all relax together.

There are many other walks along the glorious coastal path to be had.

The area is appealing through all seasons making it hard to pick a favourite.

If you are feeling energetic walk the coastal path towards Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, be sure to treat yourselves with an ice lolly or cream tea.

A relaxing drive into Weymouth will take where you can find lovely restaurants or enjoy fish and chips by the harbourside.

A stroll along the esplanade with its sandy beach after is sure to be a favourite.

If you are looking to learn about the natural world, try the amazing Monkey World which is an Ape rescue Centre or fancy some military history visit The Bovington Tank Museum or Tynham Village.

Dorset really does have lots to offer whatever the weather.

This property would suit a family or a group of walking friends and all their family members including the dog as it welcomes 2 well behaved dogs.

About the location


Ringstead Bay is an unspoilt pebble beach on the Jurassic coastline surrounded by striking cliffs and farmland. The original village mentioned in the doomsday book no longer exists, but there is now a small vibrant community nestled at the back of the bay in a variety of unique houses. You can enjoy walking the South West Coast path or meander through the woodland walks, whatever your preference this is a gorgeous place to be outside. When you are ready to explore further afield, you will find Lulworth Cove and Durdle door a short 11 miles away and Weymouth with it’s beautiful beach and plentiful restaurants and cafes 7 miles to the west. The Bovington Tank Museum, Monkey World Rescue, and Tyneham Village all offer varied and interesting days out just a short drive from Ringstead, presuming you can tear yourselves away from the unspoilt beach.
