  • South-facing enclosed garden perfect to relax in and enjoy the peace and quiet
  • A stone's throw from natural beauty spots and many coast and countryside walks
Property code: DC028

A chance to unplug and recharge, this coastal haven is in the grounds of a Grade II-listed farm and is only 1 mile from the world-famous Lulworth Cove.

In a courtyard of Grade II listed farm buildings, in a quiet village location within West Lulworth, this tastefully renovated cottage is the perfect place for couples/small families to make the most of this beautiful county. Situated within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, guests can easily explore and discover the stunning coastline and beyond, from Weymouth to Poole. You also have Lulworth Cove with its unique, horseshoe-shaped bay within a mile. At the end of a busy day, you can snuggle up in front of the wood burner or enjoy a BBQ in the garden.

The white walls, cool tones and warm woods throughout the property create a contemporary, understated elegance that will enable guests to relax. The lounge/diner is bright and airy with views across Bindon Hill. To the rear of the ground floor, there is a spacious, well-equipped kitchen which leads out to the terraced courtyard with its BBQ and dining furniture. There is also a downstairs cloakroom/WC just inside the rear entrance porch. Upstairs, the immaculate presentation continues into the stylish king-size with vanity basin and twin bedrooms. There is a spacious walk-in wardrobe on the landing area. The good-sized bathroom is also contemporary and has a separate bath and shower.

With the South West Coast Path on your doorstep, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Jurassic coastline, including the walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door. For something more urban yet still on the coast, the popular seaside town of Weymouth is 15 miles away; its Victorian esplanade, seaside activities and range of attractions provide something for everyone. Also worth a visit is the National Trust’s historical Corfe Castle and village (11 miles), from here you can catch the train to the seaside town of Swanage. Lulworth itself also has a range of shops/eateries to choose from. For families, there is Monkey World and The Tank Museum almost on your doorstep.

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

Carefree Cottage is lovely and very well equipped. The garden has many seating areas for catching the sun which was so nice. It is situated about a 10-15 minute walk to beautiful Lulworth Cove. There is a lovely pub, The Castle Inn, just a few minutes walk around the corner and a shop a little further on. Such stunning walks in this area too.

The cottage was lovely and very comfortable. Fabulous location only 5 mins to the local pub! absolutely loved the garden and the three areas to sit and relax (we were lucky with the weather too). Thanks for the welcome gift of prosecco and chocolates from the owners which was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend this cottage :)

Fantastic location and great cottage but if you want to spend your time cleaning the cottage before you spend time in it then that is up to you. Needs to put back the attention to details that the previous owners Mike and Abbie set. As it was spotless and felt like your own home when you was there. Small things like salt and dishwasher fluid, soap,Read more bleach for the toilet and logs for the log burner. The rug needed a deep clean as it was very dirty as the cottage catered for pets. Hide

What a lovely small cottage so near to the village of Lulworth and the nearby beach and country walks. There are a few pubs/restaurants within walking distance and many a short car journey. Due to the pandemic, food choice was limited but all of the establishments were working hard to accommodate their customers. Only drawback we found is that DorsRead moreet Council are obviously lacking money if you see the charge for car parking everywhere, where you have to pay a minimum of 5 pounds for up to 4 hours Hide

This cottage was a perfect location to explore Lulworth and surrounding areas and the secure front and back gardens were ideal for families with children/dogs. The kitchen was very well stocked and the hosts had included lots of thoughtful touches within the property that made our stay extra special.

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.
