  • Delightfully spacious cottage sleeping eight guests
  • Elevated garden with patio area and lawn
  • Located in the beautiful village of West Lulworth

  • A pleasant clifftop walk away from Durdle Door

Property code: CHRIC

Discover picturesque Lulworth Cove from the comfort of this stylish holiday home, which sleeps up to eight guests. Stroll down to the pebble beach to go paddling, rock pooling or swimming. Or walk approximately 1 mile along the scenic coast to the famous natural limestone arch of Durdle Door, and return home to take in the glorious Dorset views from the top of the garden or to relax on the patio with a glass of wine. This inviting holiday home in West Lulworth is one of two holiday properties situated side by side.

 

Enjoy the clever upside-down design of this appealing coastal property. Find two of your bedrooms and your family bathroom at ground-floor level as you enter. Head up the stairs to your bright, inviting kitchen/diner/lounge to prepare dinner, dine at the table and then settle down together for the evening in front of a family film on TV; open the doors from the kitchen area on to the patio on warm days. Find your two additional, adjoining bedrooms as well as an en-suite bathroom, on the second floor above. As they are located in the eaves, there is some reduced head height. On sunny days, choose to relax out on the balcony or lounge in the patio area: keep an eye on children as they play on the lawn, which is steep. 

Visit fairytale Lulworth Castle and walk in the park here, approximately 3 miles from your holiday home. Take in the panoramic views out over the Purbeck countryside and towards the Jurassic Coast from the castle tower. Drive approximately 15 miles into Weymouth to shop in the seaside town, dine at one of its many restaurants, walk along the Georgian promenade or spend time at the harbour. Alternatively, drive 17.5 miles to Swanage, set on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck peninsula and known for its heritage railway.

Lovely cottage in a superb location within a short walk from Lulworth Cove. Super views of the surrounding countryside. Very spacious upstairs main bedroom and adjoining twin bedroom. Also spacious kitchen/dining area and lounge. Good parking area off the road. Garden very steep though.

A lovely stay in a comfortable and relaxing house. Great location for swimming or paddling in the cove. Excellent for coastal walks and lots of places to eat nearby. The beds were very comfy and we loved the well designed spacious kitchen. It really was a home from home. We also had great positive communication with the owners.

Christopher Cottage is comfortable, well equipped, nicely decorated and well designed for mixing, with bedrooms spacious enough for quiet time if required. Climb to the top of the garden for a peaceful view of the hills. The house is close enough to the cove for a quick walk to watch the waves or a to take longer stretch over the hill to Durdle DooRead morer. Note of caution: Tall people need to take note of the description on the website and be prepared for low sloping ceilings in parts upstairs. Hide

The cottage couldn't be in a more perfect location - it is the definition of 'perfect'. You are minutes from some amazing ice cream, bacon butties in the morning and the crab and lobster burger is fantastic from the place by the slipway. Lulworth Cove is gorgeous too and is my new happy place. The walk up the road, over the hill behind the house anRead mored back along the beach must be done. One of the most enjoyable holidays we've ever had. Everything close by. Durdle Door walkable to avoid traffic. Hide

This lovely house was perfect for our needs. So close to the beach with a sea breeze. The three level house allowed two families both privacy and space for socialisation. Many lovely walks are easily accessible and the bus is almost on the doorstep. We had a wonderful stay and are thinking of returning next year. Thank you.
