Built with local Purbeck stone this attractive and cosy barn conversion enjoys fantastic rural views and is an ideal base for exploring the Jurassic Coast and the stunning Dorset countryside.

Peacefully located in a quiet cul-de-sac, this modern barn enjoys fabulous views across fields and hills. Just half a mile from the stunning beach at Lulworth Cove and a short walk from the famous rock arch at Durdle Door, it is perfect for family holidays by the sea. Inside, light and airy rooms abound, with wooden flooring, exposed beams, a wood burner and several doors opening onto the charming walled garden.

Prepare and enjoy lovely family meals in the traditionally-styled spacious kitchen/diner, featuring exposed beams above, stone flooring below and a door opening onto the garden. With three sets of French doors to the garden together with a fantastic wood burner set into a beamed fireplace, the lounge is a wonderful room in which to relax all year round. Perfect for multi-generational parties, this property boasts a second sitting room complete with games, books and a Bluetooth wireless speaker. Upstairs, the three elegantly-decorated bedrooms (with reduced height in the eaves) are rich in natural light through extensive Velux windows, while outside the delightful walled garden, up two steps, features a sunny seating area with views to the church. There is parking for three cars.

Just half a mile from the Dorset coastline, this property is only a short walk to the stunning white pebbled beach and crystal-clear waters of Lulworth Cove. From here, follow the South West Coast Path west to reach the iconic rock formation at Durdle Door (1.5 miles) or head east for Mupe Bay (2 miles). Back in Lulworth Cove, the village boasts two popular pubs and cafes for refuelling after a busy morning on the coast. For a wider choice of shops, cafes and restaurants head to the pretty town of Wareham, just 9 miles away.

Probably the first holiday let we have done where we couldnt fault the location, the accommodation, the cleanliness. Also a welcoming bottle of wine and some milk always appreciated! A great let- well done all.

This property is a real home from home located in a quiet village with all the appropriate facilities. SKY Q with the SKY Signature package prepaid, great for the two rainy days. Loads to do nearby and a very short walk to Lulworth Cove and the facilities provided there. We spoke every morning to the sheep in the field at the rear of the house. At Read morenight we saw more stars then we had ever seen before. We didn't want to leave at the end of the week and will definitely be back again. Hide

We stayed at this property (My wife and I) in June '21 and it was everything we hoped for, even better than the photos if anything and very well presented and equipped. Lots of room for 6 I would imagine (great for just 2!). A lovely village and easy walk to Lulworth Cove and other walks without having to drive. I would heartily recommend Sea HollyRead more. Hide

Fantastic place to stay, gorgeous location very peaceful with a field of sheep as close neighbours. We are a family of 5 (14 year old & 12 year old twins) we spent the week walking the coastal paths, spending time in the cove & visited the Dorest Falconry Centre. It was a very enjoyable & relaxing week, very much needed. The house was better than aRead more home from home & had all we needed. Would highly recommend & as a family we will definitely be booking a return visit. Hide

This was an idyllic property situated in a perfect location. We had booked the property for April but because of COVID lockdown we reverted to end September. The weather was perfect for coastal walking, which Lulworth is famous for. There is a small convenance store nearby but for larger shops both Wareham and Dorchester are within easy driving disRead moretance. A perfect property for a perfect holiday. Hide

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.
