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.

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.

Beautiful cottage, very clean and comfortable. Excellent location, only 10 minutes walk from Lulworth Cove, so you can leave your car at the cottage and go on many beautiful walks. The local pub was only a few minutes walk and plenty of seating outside. We will definitely return.

I thought overall the cottage was really good and in a superb location. The bottle of wine left for us on arrival was a lovely touch as well. Lulworth is a cracking little village and right on the south west coast path which we were down walking for the week so this cottage is ideally placed if you are exploring that.

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.
