  • Comfortable family home from home with clean, crisp tones and nautical themes near Lulworth Cove with space for four people and one lucky canine pal
  • 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.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size, 1 twin (both of which have reduced head height in the eaves)

Lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful area. Had everything we needed. Very friendly pub serving good food at the end of the road. We loved walking at Lulworth Cove every day. Very dog friendly area so perfect for our Cavapoo. We all enjoyed curling up in front of the log burner in the evenings. Hope to visit again soon.

The cottage was light, bright and extremely comfortable. We were welcomed with a bottle of Prosecco, two glasses and a lovely box of chocolates, which was a really nice touch and greatly appreciated.

Nice cottage in a good location, with plenty to see and do within a short drive or walk. Perhaps not best suited for very young children (ours are 2 and 10 months), in part because there was no high chair or travel cot provided. Would also comment that as they accept dogs, the floor was not the cleanest for little ones to crawl around, and the edgeRead more of the hearth was very sharp. Hide

An extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable cottage set in a very convenient location for Lulworth Cove. Plenty of garden furniture and BBQ in the courtyard garden, and a second grassed enclosed garden, also with furniture, which is perfect for children or dogs wanting to play. A dog friendly pub and a small shop in walking distance.

Fabulous, dog friendly cottage. Enclosed garden front & back useful for letting the dog out. Lulworth is a fabulous location with a small, quiet beach for small walks but close enough to larger places (Weymouth & Swanage). Close to the coastal path should you want longer walks or trail runs. Local pub is cosy with great food & staff. Loved it thereRead more and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet break. Hide

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.

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
