Property code: CHRIC

This property located in the coastal village of West Lulworth, a historic fishing village next to the beautiful Lulworth Cove, and just a thirty-minute walk to the iconic Durdle Door.

Discover picturesque Lulworth Cove from the comfort of this stylish holiday home, which sleeps up to eight guests. Stroll down to the pebble beach to go paddling, rock pooling or swimming. Or walk approximately 1 mile along the scenic coast to the famous natural limestone arch of Durdle Door, and return home to take in the glorious Dorset views from the top of the garden or to relax on the patio with a glass of wine. This inviting holiday home in West Lulworth is one of two holiday properties situated side by side.

 

Enjoy the clever upside-down design of this appealing coastal property. Find two of your bedrooms and your family bathroom at ground-floor level as you enter. Head up the stairs to your bright, inviting kitchen/diner/lounge to prepare dinner, dine at the table and then settle down together for the evening in front of a family film on TV; open the doors from the kitchen area on to the patio on warm days. Find your two additional, adjoining bedrooms as well as an en-suite bathroom, on the second floor above. As they are located in the eaves, there is some reduced head height. On sunny days, choose to relax out on the balcony or lounge in the patio area: keep an eye on children as they play on the lawn, which is steep. 

Visit fairytale Lulworth Castle and walk in the park here, approximately 3 miles from your holiday home. Take in the panoramic views out over the Purbeck countryside and towards the Jurassic Coast from the castle tower. Drive approximately 15 miles into Weymouth to shop in the seaside town, dine at one of its many restaurants, walk along the Georgian promenade or spend time at the harbour. Alternatively, drive 17.5 miles to Swanage, set on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck peninsula and known for its heritage railway.

 

  • 4 bedrooms: 1 king-size, 1 double, and 2 twin (please note the second twin room is accessed via the main bedroom)

Everything in the cottage was just right for a family friendly holiday at the English Seaside - Perfect! Short walk to the beach - and NOT overly commercialised in Lulworth Cove - which was exactly what we hoped for. All three generations in our party enjoyed the holiday fully.

This is a good size family house with two bedrooms on the ground floor and one on the second floor. There are two bathrooms and off street parking. It was well equipped and clean. The best thing about it is the location. A short walk down to the cove and plenty of other nice walks around.

Location

Map
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.
