Beautiful countryside cottage in with soaring views across the Purbeck Hills. Attractive gardens and rustic charm characterise this lovely Dorset family retreat.

Set in a courtyard of Grade II-listed converted farm buildings, this charming property is perfect for relaxing family getaways by the coast. Beautifully updated inside, original beams and slate flooring combine with sleek contemporary units and stylish modern decor to create light and spacious rooms throughout. After a long day at Lulworth Cove or walking the South West Coast Path, return to the stunning Mediterranean-style courtyard garden for an al fresco meal beneath the pergola.

Keen cooks will delight in preparing delicious meals in the stunning contemporary kitchen, which is fitted with chic white units, quartz worktops and state-of-the-art appliances. Once prepared, enjoy meals in the spacious triple aspect lounge/diner, where plump sofas surround a beamed fireplace with a wood burner, and French doors open onto the patio. Here you will find a delightful al fresco dining area beneath a vine-covered pergola, while a stepping stone path leads to the lawn and two further terraces surrounded by colourful beds, shrubs and trees. There is a useful boot room and an allocated parking space for one car.

One of Dorset’s most well-known landmarks, this perfectly-rounded bay offers unforgettable swimming in its crystal-clear water, boat trips to explore the surrounding coastline and fruitful fossil hunting along the shoreline. Stop for a bite to eat at a local cafe or follow the coastal path to neighbouring Durdle Door (1.5 miles).

Sorry but this cottage needs updating. Was probably a 5 star but needs a good paint over inside and out plus toilet and shower need overalling. On arrival lots of cobwebs inside and out on windows and frames. Also no information booklet so had to guess no for the padlock for the shed just to find cushions for outside chairs.locatiob saves it at momRead moreent. Was probably a five star a few years ago but now needs a good clean , paint up and showers sorting. Hide

Beautiful cottage with everything you would need to make home from home for a week ! Fabulous location with so much to explore and great bistro pubs at the Cove. Walking along top (once you have managed the big climb up from the cottage! ) along Boundary path when open is great.

An excellent cottage in terms of quality and comfort. If you stay out of season be aware that the village shop is closed for the winter and buses to Weymouth and Poole are limited. This is possibly the best holiday home we have stayed in.

The cottage was very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. The location was excellent for country coastal walks. One footpath commenced immediately opposite the end of the lane and we didn't use the car at all on several days. The nearby Castle Inn is great for an open-air drink in the afternoon sunshine but tables inside are limited. We preRead moreferred the Lulworth Cove Inn especially on weekdays when it was less busy. Take a good torch for the evening stroll back. Hide
