  • Beautiful detached three-bedroom stone cottage with a range of inside entertainment for wet weather
  • An ideal base for walkers with the Southwest Coast Path and many local walks on your doorstep
  • Located in the heart of the village half a mile from the stunning Lulworth Cove with local amenities 200 yards away
Property code: DC064

Quaint stone cottage set in the heart of the village of Lulworth Cove. Conveniently located for local amenities and a short walk to stunning views from the coastal path and beach.

Set in the beautiful village of West Lulworth, this former WI Meeting Hall has been converted into a characterful, quirky and contemporary cottage giving a true taste of country living. Sleeping five, it’s within 1.5 miles of some of Dorset’s most spectacular coastal sights, including Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Inside, you’ll find plenty of room for the whole party to relax and unwind after a day exploring the Dorset coastline. Leave your coats and boots in the hall and step into the cosy open-plan sitting/dining room where you can snuggle up in front of the wood burner with a film, a board game or book. The kitchen is more contemporary in feel, with laminate flooring and modern appliances, where you can create a feast to enjoy back at the farmhouse-style table. A double bedroom and shower room are also on the ground floor. Climb the stairs to discover the charming upstairs accommodation but mind your head – there’s reduced ceiling height in the eaves. There are two large bedrooms and a bathroom, with all benefiting from stylish decor. Outside, a small seating area is perfect for a morning coffee and includes the property’s parking area.

West Lulworth has village amenities including a shop and a pub, both within 350 metres of the property. The stunning coastline at Lulworth Cove is less than a mile away, or you could head to the South West Coast Path for delightful coastal walks regardless of your fitness level. Take the path past Man O’War beach to Durdle Door, 1.5 miles away – a visit to this area is not complete without seeing the famous limestone arch.

A lovely cottage in a great location, within walking distance of Lulworth Cove and other quieter beaches. The overall quality of the accommodation was excellent. However, we were disappointed with the standard of cleanliness in some areas: the bin in the master bedroom hadn't been emptied and was full of used cotton wool; dust and a mouldy dorito uRead morender the bed in the downstairs bedroom; bits of broccoli in the fridge. Another negative was that the matress in the master bedroom was far too soft. Hide

The cottage was lovely, warm and comfortable. The location is perfect, a short walk from Lulworth Cove. The only thing it lacked was outdoor sitting space. We had a fabulous time there though.

Great week away in West Lulworth. Cottage was cosy and comfortable. Everything you need in a self catering place. Instructions left for everything. TV aerial signal is awful (mentioned in the folder) but an amazon firestick available in the property. Owners left a bunch of flowers, biscuits and milk for us which was great! Only tiny negative is theRead more sofa has clearly had a lot of usage as cushions totally flat and because of this regularly needed repositioning. All in all, a great place though Hide

The cottage is ideally situated to be able to visit many places in Dorset. We found it very roomy and we felt instantly at home. The fresh flowers and local biscuits were much appreciated. Added bonus of the washing machine for our swimwear and beach towels.

Great cottage in a fabulous location for exploring the local area only marred by being involved in a local neighbour disputes over parking.

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.
