Laurel Cottage is a very tastefully renovated thatched cottage.The cottage is large and roomy, very clean with hotel standard towels and linens. The fixtures and fittings are done to a very high standard indeed and, on the whole, we enjoyed our stay.
We are a large family of seven adults plus two dogs and therefore we put all the facilities to the 'test' somewhat. We were really impressed with the kitchen as we like to cook; even on holiday!
If there are any points of criticism to be made about Laurel Cottage they are easily remedied. There is only just enough cutlery, glasses and crockery for 8 people at a time, which for us meant a lot of washing up and use of the dishwasher.
Some of the beds have very firm mattresses which could be greatly improved by the addition of mattress toppers.
We did, however, have a few unexpected issues with Laurel Cottage when we first arrived, which we were assured were unusual. Unfortunately the cleaning company had not been informed of our arrival which meant that the house had not been cleaned or the bedding/towels changed from the previous visitors. After a swift phone call to the owner, a lovely lady appeared and worked for 3 hours to clean the bathrooms/toilets, leave fresh towels and change the beds.
We cleaned the kitchen ourselves in order to be able to put away the supermarket online food order that we had organised! It was arranged that another cleaner would come along the following morning for a further two hours to vacuum, mop and dust the rooms.
Another problem - which proved the most challenging - was that the garden is certainly NOT secure for dogs! Even the smallest canine could easily escape, if so minded, from the garden. After some discussion with the owner, it was agreed that we would buy and fit some chicken wire to temporarily secure the back garden for our dogs. Thankfully this worked well although we dismantled it when we left.

We are hoping that the owner will be addressing this issue and secure the back garden for people bringing there dogs. In our opinion, Laurel Cottage would then be a perfect Dorset holiday experience!

“Perfect-for-families cottage in beautiful village”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Sutton Pontyz is a charming village. The house is situated on the corner of a road and a pedestrian walk which leads up to the duck pond and good local gastro pub. My wife and I used the opportunity to do several walks including one to Lulworth Cove along the coastal path - highly recommended! Overall - a wonderful period cottage with plenty of space, excellently located and finished internally to a high standard. Would recommend.

Laurel Cottage is an extraordinarily well presented residence that features large, well appointed bedrooms with modern bathrooms, comfortable lounge and dining rooms, a contemporary kitchen with up-to-date electrical appliances, and a colourful garden with a pleasant outdoor eating area. A path beside the cottage leads through the village of Sutton Poyntz to the Springhead pub and restaurant. Beyond the pub, the path takes to the countryside, through grassy fields and beside rolling hillsides, past an equestrian King George III carved into the slopes like a giant etching, and para-gliders floating in the air, to magnificent views of Portland Bill and Weymouth Bay. This is an exceptional place.
