    “The cottage was lovely, views where great so peaceful and relaxing.”

    Never had pheasants in the garden before. The garden was just the job for our Springer Spaniel to run around. The postman even managed to deliver Father's day card and a 40th birthday present. Stayed June 2018

The property

Pitt Cottage is a beautiful thatched cottage and is located next to Ringstead Bay in Dorset.

The position of this cottage is unique, standing majestically in half an acre of land with panoramic sea views and complete seclusion.

On the ground floor you will find the generous kitchen / diner ready for you to prepare wonderful family meals for everyone to enjoy.

The lounge has stunning sea views and a large open fireplace.

Upstairs There are three comfortable bedrooms on the first floor, two twin bedrooms and a super king 6ft wide bed with en-suite bathroom. The lounge has patio doors which lead through to the large garden with sweeping lawns with hedges on either side to provide privacy.

Attracts birds and wild animals to the rear of the property is a wooded area.

Ringstead Bay is famous for its sunrises and sunsets and the view of these from Pitt Cottage is a breath-taking sight.

The Bay is owned partially by the National Trust so most of the area is designated as outstandingly beautiful, is unspoilt and highly sought after.

The coastal path stretching from Weymouth to Lulworth offers the enthusiastic rambler a fantastic walk to remember.

A leisurely stroll will take you to a picnic area with seasonal shop where you are able to purchase your daily paper, essential provisions and enjoy in a nice cup of tea accompanied by freshly caught seafood sandwiches.

The nearby resort town of Weymouth is a relatively short drive away and will provide you with high street shops and entertainment if required.

Directly out of one of Thomas Hardy's novels Pitt Cottage is a picture postcard thatched cottage.

About the location


Thrapston 3 miles; Raunds 3 miles; Kettering 11 miles.

The small village of Ringstead is set in east Northamptonshire, in peaceful rolling countryside, just three miles from the town of Thrapston. Ringstead village offers good local amenities, which include two shops, a Post Office, a riverside tea room and two pubs, along with pretty ironstone cottages. Ringstead’s former sand and gravel pits have with the passing of time become Northamptonshire’s largest Pocket Park, with the Kinewell Lake Pocket Park and Local Nature Reserve offering wonderful lakes, which are set in 87 acres of land, and are rich with waterfowl, herons, kingfishers, and the occasional sighting of otters, along with picnic benches, a bird hide and permit only fishing. The River Nene passes alongside the village where you can enjoy watching the passing barges and riverboats, or you may wish to hire a boat at Willy Watt Marina. The attractive market town of Thrapston is just 3 miles away and offers a wider selection of shops. The rolling hills of the Northamptonshire countryside are ideal for cycling, walking, plus fishing is available in a number of lakes. Sports fans will love the proximity to Santa Pod Raceway, Rockingham Speedway, Silverstone motor racing circuit and Huntingdon Racecourse, whilst for a more sedate day out, why not spend some time visiting Rockingham Castle and Garden, Boughton House, Stanwick Lakes, Althorpe House, Sywell Aviation Museum and Hamerton Zoo Park which are all within easy driving distance.
