Stunning Grade II-listed thatched cottage set in beautiful and tranquil Lulworth Cove and overlooking the impressive Hambury Tout Hill to the front.

This cottage is everything you imagine a traditional countryside cottage to look like with white stone walls, colourful window frames and thatched roof. It is conveniently located on the lane leading down to Lulworth Cove and it faces the impressive Hambury Tout Hill, a natural chalk hill with an interesting history. Lulworth Cove itself is ideal for explorers; whether you are seeking out Durdle Door or stunning Lulworth Castle, you’re sure to find something to interest you. A little further afield is Wareham (8 miles away) with its museum, historic churches and Arne Nature Reserve.

The property is entered through the rear hall which is light and airy due to impressive floor to ceiling windows. A fully-equipped kitchen with large range oven awaits, providing everything that an amateur chef could possibly need. There is an additional utility room housing the tumble drier. The beamed sitting room has an original Purbeck stone floor and feature chimney breast as well as comfortable and warm soft furnishings. The dining room is also beamed wiith Purbeck stone floor and benefits from a window seat where you can spend a tranquil couple of hours enjoying local views. There is a second sitting room in the properly which boasts a floor to ceiling window and an oak floor - this room also provides access to the rear courtyard. The three bedrooms are located upstairs, and all have reduced ceiling height as they are situated in the eaves of the property. With feature beams and oak floors, they are stylish rooms, with one of the double bedrooms boasting its own en-suite with slipper bath. There is an additional bathroom with shower for use by the remaining two bedrooms.

Facing Hambury Tout Hill, the property is situated directly on the lane so it doesn’t have a front garden area; however, the rear space makes up for this. There is a small enclosed courtyard area which extends to a steeply sloping lawn area with terrace, lawn and pond accessed by gated steps, all of which take advantage of extensive far-reaching views of the hills.

  • 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom
  • 1 en-suite bathroom and 1 bathroom
  • Range cooker, separate oven and hob, fridge, microwave, washing machine, freezer, and dishwasher. Drier in utility room

Bricklesey is a gorgeous cottage in a brilliant location. The cottage was well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. Jayne was very helpful and when we texted that the kettle had stopped working she came straight round with a new one and gave us lots of tips for places to visit

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
