The conservation village of Sutton Poyntz is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in West Dorset. The picturesque village millpond and pretty cottages of Silver Street and the Sutton mill are delightful subjects for photographers and artists. The welcoming Springhead pub and restaurant is situated beside the millpond and offers a varied home cooked menu. There is a children's play area and arc into which the resident ducks retire each evening!
The village is most pleasingly situated lying almost hidden in a horseshoe of hills along which runs the South West Coastal Path. This path follows rolling downs and passes through secret valleys providing access to some of the most beautiful scenery in Dorset
At the 'White Horse', which is carved into the hillside, there are spectacular views towards the sea, town of Weymouth and Island of Portland. The Path follows the Dorset coastline, recently awarded World Heritage Site status. There is interesting wildlife to see including buzzards, woodpeckers, heron, pheasants, badgers and foxes
Sutton Poyntz was the 'Overcombe' of Thomas Hardy's novel 'The Trumpet Major', with the mill and mill house as the main setting. Hardy's cottage is nearby in the village of Lower Bockhampton
There are many other unspoilt beaches and idyllic secluded coves within easy reach including the famous Chesil beach, Ringstead Bay, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, West Bay, Golden Cap near Seatown and Lyme Regis for fossils and a dinosaur tour
With its elegant Georgian seafront, wide promenade and delightfully picturesque old harbour the seaside town of Weymouth is at the heart of the World Heritage Coast. There is a wide choice of restaurants and eating establishments. The golden sweeping beach is approximately 1.5km long. The bay is sheltered and swimmers and other water users benefit from the gradually sloping seabed giving shallow inshore waters.
