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 modern property, close to Lulworth Cove and within walking distance of the village/sea on paths/footpath. Small garden to sit out in, but not big enough for children to play.

Cottage was just what we expected. Plenty of room, very peaceful location, short walk from cove. Used the coastal bus a few times so hardly needed to drive. Relaxing week

Very good property Nice bathrooms with one powerful shower. Large dinning kitchen with new kitchen equipment so quite good if you want to cook. Has a very small garden but it is south or west facing so sunny. Good property for a family but bedroom 2 is a twin and really better for children not 2 couples. A walk to a pub and easy walk to Lulworth BaRead morey where there are cafs and restaurants. Excellent area and not too commercialised. Hide

We loved the peace and quiet and situation of the cottage. The closeness to Lulworth Cove was marvellous as we did not need the car all the time. It was also advantageous to have a shop and a pub within easy reach.

A very comfortable cottage, in a picturesque quiet location. Good parking and convenient for visiting local attractions. Plenty of places to eat and beautiful walks from the doorstep.

Reviewed by Mr W Rowley 20th April 2019

Seashells successfully blended the appearance and cosy feel of a traditional Dorset village thatched cottage with the features and comforts of a modern house. Very spacious, especially the main bedroom and shower room. And no low beams!

Reviewed by Mrs A Schofield 31st August 2018

Overall we were really happy with the cottage. It was warm and cosy.There were some stains on the lounge and stair carpets but these were minor. One issue we had was that the washing machine was very musty smelling and although we washed the clothes twice the smell remained on our clothes which was not pleasant.

Good size rooms. Modern, clean, really lovely

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.
