    Great fun waking up to outside the properties garden we were surrounded by cows as the cottage is in the middle of a working farm. The cows were friendly and were not worried by us walking through the field . If you want a place to run away to total peace so you can just listen to nature. Lovely quite shingled beach. We walked some of the coastal path from the cottage to the smugglers inn pub. I would say you had to be a confident Walker to do the walks as lots of hills. We took my mother who enjoyed the time to just stop. Short drive to Lulworth cove had lunch at the castle pub. Friendly staff and good food. Our favourite place to eat was the crab cafe Weymouth . But be ready for the traffic to get there as it’s just off the road to Portland. My husband says he wished he had taken a kayak. Parking in the beach carport was £6 for the day , so best to walk there if you can. The farm shop by the petrol station was a good source of supplies but a 5/10 drive and open 10-4 pm

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


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.
