    “The Courthouse is a comfortable, well maintained property in the lovey village of Sutton Poyntz.”

    It is well situated for visiting the surrounding area and Weymouth is within a short distance. We enjoyed the break and would certainly recommend this property.

The property

The Courthouse is a generous, well presented and decorated character detached property with a sunny enclosed rear garden situated in Sutton Poyntz, Weymouth.

During medieval times this property housed the court when Sutton Poyntz was the local regional centre, and later the court house for the Weld Estate.

A refurbished detached barn conversion with a large and spacious kitchen and dining area, where you can prepare tasty meals and then enjoy with a drink in the sitting area complete with exposed beams or on a warm sunny day or early evening open the patio doors and enjoy your meal alfresco while sitting in the pretty garden.

The Courthouse has three bedrooms, one en-suite.

Retaining the street plan and numerous 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 tranquillity of village life with the sound of ducks splashing in the pond and rustling willows from the village mill pond.

The Springhead Pub which offers provincial ales, chilled wine and a varied menu is only a very short walk from the property, taking you past the mill pond to a shop which is also within walking distance.

With the famous White Horse and the South West Coast path immediately to the north of the village The Court House is the perfect base for rambling.

Bowleaze Cove is only a mile walk whilst the award-winning golden sands of Weymouth and its picturesque harbour are a short drive or bus journey away.

The Courthouse is perfectly situated to explore the entire Jurassic Heritage coast with Purbeck, Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge Bay all the way to Swanage to the east while to the west you will find Abbotsbury, Chesil Beach, Bridport and Lyme Regis.

The Courthouse is a wonderful stone detached property in a stunning village location, perfect for a coastal break away.
