Beautiful modern aspect three-bedroom property providing a vista of the beautiful Purbeck Hills and surrounding village location. Exceptionally bright and spacious base for exploring the local area.

This modern three-bedroom property provides wonderful vistas of the stunning Purbeck Hills and surrounding village of West Lulworth. The property’s name may be Spanish for little house, but there’s ample room for six people in a location perfect for a seaside break; the coast is only 1 mile away.

To enter the property, walk through the garden and down a few steps into the wonderful sitting/dining room which extends the full width of the house and has windows on three sides, making the room light and airy. Patio doors from here lead onto the large terrace outside, where the countryside views can be fully enjoyed. The kitchen incorporates modern appliances with rustic styling and there is a cosy snug with doors to the south-facing balcony. On the ground floor, there is also a large double bedroom where the views of the Purbeck Hills are truly magnificent. There is also a twin room on this level, which can be converted to a double if needed, and a useful shower room. Down the stairs, past the porthole window on the landing, there is a further bedroom and an en-suite bathroom, plus access to the rear garden. The outside of the property is truly special, with different areas to relax in including lawns, terraces and paving. Parking for this property is on the village street.

This property benefits from an ideal location for exploring the local area. Lulworth Cove, less than 1 mile away, is simply stunning and also gives access onto the South West Coast Path. Take the coast path to Durdle Door, the famous limestone arch, less than 2 miles away, and enjoy the views over Man O’War beach on the way. You can also visit the popular local attractions like The Tank Museum or Monkey World.

Nice house but had I have known my dogs were expected to stay in one room then I wouldn't have booked it. They are allowed to be with us at home and I would expect a dog friendly property to allow them to be with us on holiday. Sadly this means I won't be returning which is a shame as it is in a nice area with lovely views.

This holiday home is in a great location with a lovely garden and nice outdoor areas . Its claim in the website to be dog friendly isnt correct.

The house is perfectly located, has lovely views and was a good base for a family holiday. The major downside was that it is less dog friendly than the website description suggests as, when inside the house, dogs are requested to stay in the (extremely hot) conservatory with access prevented to anywhere else inside the house.

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.
