This beautiful modern cottage is located in the heart of picturesque Lulworth Cove and boasts a tranquil outdoor dining space and access to coastal walks.

Set in the heart of the thriving village of Lulworth, this detached modern home is the perfect base for memorable holidays on the Dorset coast. Just half a mile from the front door lies the stunning beauty spot of Lulworth Cove where crystal-clear water meets a white pebble beach, offering safe swimming and fantastic rock-pooling. After a long day relaxing on the beach or walking the South West Coast Path, return to this modern cottage for a cosy evening beside the wood burner or a summer BBQ in the courtyard garden.

Inside, a spacious and open-plan lounge/diner is tastefully decorated in soft muted tones with a solid oak dining table at one end and a cosy lounge area at the other with a fully-stocked bookcase, a wood burner and a TV. Next door, a compact yet bright kitchen offers plenty of surface space for preparing delicious meals, which can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar overlooking the garden. Stepping outside, a sunny al fresco dining area backed by a colourful bank of wildflowers is a charming setting for summer BBQs. There is parking for three cars.

One of Dorset’s most famous landmarks, Lulworth Cove is an awe-inspiring sheltered bay that’s popular among many. From here, set out along the South West Coast Path to reach nearby Durdle Door (1.5 miles) and Ringstead Bay (5 miles) before a rewarding bite to eat a pub or cafe. The bustling seaside resort of Weymouth is just 14.5 miles away, offering a range of shops, eateries and activities together with a three-mile stretch of golden sandy beach.

This cottage is in an A* location to explore the Dorset coastline. The cottage was super clean and the welcome wine/biscuits was lovely. The downsides are very easily fixed to bring this up to a 5 * review. I gave the equipment 2 stars and this was based on the internet, plumbing,TV &BBQ. The internet and TV systems are very old with download speedRead mores of approx 2 MB. If you need to work from the cottage its nearly impossible. Smart TV these days are a must.Plumbing needs attention & no BBQ Hide

We (4 plus a dog) had a great week. The cottage is in a great location with ample off-road parking. First impressions were great, everything was as described and some great welcome treats for all. The cottage is fully equipped, a real home from home. Plenty of information provided on both the cottage and the local area. A great pub a 2 minute walk Read moreaway, plenty of dog walks and a great coffee shop on Lulworth beach. The host is excellent, addressing a minor issue for us. Highly recommend. Hide

Very pretty cottage with everything you need in kitchen etc Location very good, although an extremely busy road which we found a bit hazardous at times. The garden is not as shown on detail with only a very old table and chairs which are broken in parts with seat pads not made to fit it as it should BBQ is tiny old and rusted We felt let down as weRead more like to dine and sit outside, it spoilt our stay Whist clean it felt like it needed a re fresh and a good deep clean in areas 3 star property Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Santa Cruz. The cottage was beautiful with everything we needed. The welcome pack was very thoughtful and even included a treat for our dogs. The local of this cottage is fantastic. A stones throw from the Ship Inn, which serves the best food and also a short walk to Lulworth Cove. We could not have wished for more

Great place to stay and a brilliant location near to the cove. Plenty of walks and fresh air. Due to Covid restrictions you need to book pubs etc to eat out it gets busy in the area. A little shop a short walk away but best to stock up before you arrive if your eating in at larger towns before you get here.
