This stunning thatched cottage is the ideal retreat for families seeking a holiday by the sea, located less than a mile away from exciting coastal walks, historic landmarks and an abundance of places to sample fresh seafood.

This charming thatched cottage in the picture-perfect location of Lulworth Cove has everything you would expect from a typical country home. Sleeping five, the property is perfect for all, with two dogs welcome too. With the beach, a pub and a shop all on your doorstep, it’s the perfect location if you want to leave your car at home.

This thatched cottage combines traditional features such as wooden floors and open fireplaces with modern conveniences. Leave your coats and boots in the hall after a walk from the beach and enter into either the dining room, with its comfortable seating area, or the kitchen/breakfast room to make yourself some lunch. The adjoining utility room leads to the terrace outside, which is the perfect spot for a morning coffee, and there is a convenient downstairs WC. The large sitting room, down two steps, has a wood burner and TV, ideal for relaxing evenings in. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with reduced ceiling height: a 5ft double, a single and a twin, plus a large family bathroom. To the front of the cottage, up two steps from the pavement, the front garden is walled with lawn and shrubs. The rear garden is a real haven, with a private terrace. Further up the sloped garden is another terrace with a seating area where you can enjoy the sea views.

With stunning Dorset attractions on your doorstep, including Lulworth Cove (400 metres) and Durdle Door (1 mile), you’re spoilt for choice for things to see and do on your doorstep. Take the South West Coast Path towards Weymouth in the west (13 miles) or towards Swanage in the east (30 miles). Inland is Lulworth Castle, 3 miles away; a 16th-century castle which all the family will enjoy exploring.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Cajun Cottage is a stunning cottage in a beautiful location. We arrived to a spotless cottage, Mandy the housekeeper had made a lovely job of preparing it. Surprisingly roomy there is lots of space to relax. The outside space is split over several levels, a small sun trap of a patio, rising to a middle terrace perfect for a sun bed in summer to theRead more decking overlooking the village. Enough pubs and restaurants to provide variety and shops close at hand for essentials. Loved our week in Lulworth! Hide

Cajun Cottage is a ideal retreat and located in one of the best spots in West Lulworth. There were 5 of us and the dog. We had 3 teenagers who loved the fact that they had their own lounge (the dining room) away from the adults. Can't fault it!

Ideally located very close to Lulworth Cove with its beach, shops and food vendors. Enjoy the walk to Durdle Door/ Man OWar. Easy to travel further afield. The cottage had everything we needed and a beautiful garden with sea views. Having the parking space was excellent. We loved our week at Cajun Cottage.

We absolutely loved Cajun Cottage - it was picture postcard perfect! The cottage was beautifully clean, the kitchen very well stocked with everything you need, comfy beds, fantastic location and the view from the top of the garden is fabulous. And thank you so much for the bottle of wine! We would really love to come back soon.

What a wonderful cottage. Incredible location right on the South West Coastal Path and a stones throw from the Cove - it feels incredibly special to be there especially once the crowds have gone home. And the cottage itself is perfect. Modern and comfortable and homely but full of character too. Everything has been thought about. We loved it.

The property is perfectly placed for the beach & surrounding coastal walks. From the top of the very steep garden you get the most amazing views. The beds are very comfy & you have everything you need from within. There are fabulous places to eat on your doorstep with a choice of pubs/cafes. The local ice cream is a must everyday!

Lovely comfortable cottage with plenty of indoor space. There are 2 steps down from hallway into lounge room which our old dog struggled with, also garden is very steep in 3 terraced sections. There is a smaller garden area on same level as cottage.

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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
