  • "The cottage was lovely, cosy/warm and comfortable."

    Location was beautiful. Nice/friendly local pub within 200 yards for nice food/drinks. Internet connection was strong enough to cope with 3-4 devices! My only moan is that it was tough to get on and off the drive way but I believe that is being rectified soon. I ended up parking opposite the pub for most of the week.

    Thank you very much for your great comments, we are really glad you had a nice time. As you say we are indeed addressing the drive situation this week by considerably widening the gates . This will very much improve parking for future guests. Property Owner

  • "Really attractive, spacious and comfortable cottage."

    Great walks straight from the door (would have appreciated some maps/leaflets about Sutton Poyntz and the walks available) Only two downsides: the fridge was not as cold as it should be and exuded a musty smell which was off putting and as has been mentioned before, manoeuvring into and out of the drive was incredibly tight (obviously nothing can be done about that!)

    Hi, thanks for your positive comments. We will be replacing the fridge and widening the gates to help with the parking. Property Owner

  • "A lovely house, comfortable and well appointed."

    The website needs updating - the White Horse is no longer visible due to a large house built next door. Access to the drive is very difficult as the lane is too narrow for easily turning into the drive, we just made it in a Vauxhall Zafira with an inch to spare but it would be impossible in a larger car.

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have asked Sykes to update the website as the view of the White Horse is obsecured by the farmers hedges. Turning onto the driveway is narrow, but the house has been here on the track since the 1500's. We have also had a landrover park on the drive and a few weeks ago a campervan together with a mini. Perhaps its all down to the driving! Property Owner

  • "White Horse Cottage is my dream home (or in fact, its neighbour White Horse House which looks absolutely fabulous, especially with the field behind it, my horse would have loved it)."

    I would happily trade my London home for either. The location is perfect, my little dog loved his early morning walks and trips to the nearby beach and there was plenty of room for my daughter, son-in-law, and my two grandsons. We all had a fabulous time. The village is perfect, the residences were so friendly, and the Springhead Pub was lovely (that's a lot from me, I'm not really a pub person). Really I didn't want to leave. Thanks for the opportunity to stay in your fabulous property.

The property

With views overlooking rolling Dorset hills and a local pub within walking distance, White Horse Cottage is nestled into the countryside of Sutton Poyntz, near Preston, and is a fantastic getaway for a family or group of friends looking to escape to the coast and countryside of Dorset.

Be welcomed by a charming kitchen/diner, flicking on the kettle, and planning a hearty meal, assisted by the ample amenities as the woodburning stove adds countryside ambiance from a bare-stone fireplace separating the kitchen/diner partially from the snug.

As the evening wears on, settle down into the charming sitting room beside the open fire and reflect on the day with a glass of your favourite beverage.

Freshen up in the bathroom with either a soak in the tup or a warm shower, before settling down into one of the tastefully presented bedrooms, each with storage for your belongings and countryside views, including a king-size, a king-size with en-suite and a twin.

Outside, make the most of the fresh air and views of the Poyntz White Horse with alfresco dining as your four-legged companion plays on the lawn, shrouded in mature shrubs and colourful flowers.

A rural enclosed garden, suitable for supervised children.

Sutton Poyntz is a lovely rural location boasting a local pub, The Springhead Pub, two minutes away, severing food all day, Including other places where guests can enjoy a hearty meal out and walks towards Chalbury Hillfort and the Osmington White Horse, enjoying scenic views and rich history and heritage.

For a greater selection of eateries and a convenience store, head into Preston, and from here you can find the delightful Bowleaze Cove.

Weymouth is a fantastic town with loads of amenities and attractions, including the Nothe Fort and gardens, Tudor House, and a local museum, ideal for history buffs.

There is also the option to explore the local wildlife at RSPB Radipole Lake and the Weymouth Sea Life Centre, or guests can simply enjoy a stroll on the local beach.

Beyond this, visit the Isle of Portland where there are two castles, a marina and local beach, or embark on one of the many scenic hikes through the stunning scenery of the West Dorset Heritage Coast.

All of this and so much more with a stay at the delightful White Horse Cottage.

About the location


  • Weymouth 3.7 miles

Sutton Poyntz is a small village on the northern side of Preston, on the outskirts of Weymouth, and it sits beneath the George III chalk horse that is carved into the hillside. At the centre of the village sits a beautiful duck pond, and the Springhead pub, where you can enjoy a drink in the pub gardens whilst admiring the chalk horse carving. Just 3.5 miles from Weymouth and it’s golden sandy beach, lanes of boutique shops, sea life centre and historic harbour this is a perfect village base for exploring the Jurassic Coast. Just 13 miles away are the UNESCO world Heritage sites of Lulworth Cove and Durdle, a short drive further on finds you at Corfe Castle, most recently known for being the inspiration behind many Enid Blyton Famous Five novels. Make sure you take a trip on the steam train on the Swanage Railway, which passes the magnificent ruins. A charming base to choose in a stunning part of Dorset.
