Immerse yourself in an enchanting coastal getaway with this traditional thatched Dorset cottage, offering a relaxing space for families and couples to enjoy.

This traditional cottage sits just half a mile from the stunning Dorset beauty spot of Lulworth Cove. Soak up the sunshine on the white pebble beach or take to the coastal path above for a scenic walk to nearby Durdle Door (2.5 miles) in the west and Mupe Bay (2 miles) in the east. Afterwards, return to this beautifully furnished character cottage for a summer meal on the patio or a cosy evening on the sofa with your loved ones.

Prepare and enjoy delicious meals in the spacious and bright kitchen, which has been tastefully fitted with stylish cream units with oak worktops, a Belfast sink and circular dining table beneath exposed beams. The lounge is the perfect place to snuggle down in front of the TV in the evenings or enjoy a cup of coffee beside the large French doors in the afternoons. Upstairs, the reduced-height bedrooms are elegantly finished in calming neutral tones to guarantee a restful night’s sleep for all. Step outside from the lounge or kitchen to find a sunny patio for al fresco dining, leading to a small lawn beyond. There is parking for two cars.

One of Dorset’s most celebrated beauty spots, Lulworth Cove is famous for its unique geology, crystal-clear blue waters and white pebble beach. For the adventurous, the visitor centre offers coasteering, mountain biking and other outdoor pursuits while, for those who prefer a slower pace of life, the South West Coast Path offers wonderful walks with stunning views across the Jurassic Coast. Stock up on supplies at the Lulworth Stores (0.5 miles), tuck into a hearty meal at the local inn (0.5 miles) or visit nearby Wareham (9 miles) for a wider choice of shops and eateries.

Lovely cottage and location. Close to Lulworth Cove and Durdle door. We went to Weymouth and Swanage and used the steam railway to travel to and from Corfe Castle to Swanage which was fun. Lots to see and do in the area and we ate out at restaurants/pubs close by within walking distance. Could not get a reservation at the pub in the village for eitRead moreher lunch or dinner all week which was disappointing. Excellent facilities close by and the whole week was very enjoyable in this beautiful location Hide

Beautiful cottage in an excellent location, lovely being just ten minutes walk to Lulworth Cove. Was well worth the wait, we should have gone last year but due to Covid had to transfer to this year.

A really lovely cottage in a perfect location-quiet but in easy walking distance of Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door ( not quite so easy!), a local shop and an attractive pub. Just what we needed Hopefully we will be able to revisit in the not too distant future.

We feel the lack of wifi really ought to have been made more explicit when booking the property. Additionally only 1 toilet roll or less supplied per bathroom for a one week stay, not enough! Otherwise a lovely cottage.

The cottage is lovely. It is very clean and warm . We only use one bedroom so we had plenty of space. Wonderful walk in shower in the en-suite. A real home from home. Especially at these times of isolation.

We really enjoyed our stay. Seashells is a great cottage and is situated in a very peaceful and quiet location. It is comfortable, light and has all of the facilities you will need for an enjoyable and relaxing break. We will definitely return.

Great place and great location but No WiFi and the Tv aerial was broken and didnt get fixed until 5 days after our arrival due to it being a bank holiday is just not good enough considering the price tag.

Location

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.
