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

Move just 0.5 miles inland from Lulworth Cove and you’ll find this delightful stone-built thatched cottage waiting to be discovered for a holiday you’ll never forget. Quietly situated in a secluded cul-de-sac location, this beautiful retreat is only a short stroll from the beautiful Dorset coastline, including the famous Durdle Door. Less than 3 miles from Lulworth Castle and approximately 9 miles to Wareham, it’s the perfect base to plan your next adventure. Whether you spend your days taking it easy by the ocean, hiking on the coastal path or visiting the local attractions, this cottage is an idyllic spot to end every day.

Entering the property, you’ll be instantly struck by the light and space opening up in front of you. With carpeted stairs ascending to the first floor on the left, the doors lead to the large lounge and kitchen/diner which wait to be explored. Moving to the kitchen on the right, you’ll be flooded with sunlight from the triple aspect kitchen/diner which is decorated in a farmhouse style and features an impressive range cooker. Moving through into the lounge, there’s a decorative wood burner and wooden beams to accentuate the traditional cottage style. Crash out with the family on the ample, soft sofas and relax with a DVD or two. At bedtime, climb easily up the wide stairs and enjoy a restful night’s dreaming amongst plump pillow and crisp, clean bedsheets.

To the rear of the property, there’s a private enclosed garden which can either be reached from the kitchen door or by throwing open the French doors in the lounge. Steps lead down to a paved patio area where you’ll find a table and chairs. Take it easy and enjoy a morning coffee in the sunshine, or perhaps a glass of wine as the sun sets on another fabulous day. Leading on from the patio is a lawn with paved flagstones leading to the garden gate. There’s parking for one vehicle in the carport, but a second car can easily fit in behind.

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!

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.

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.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
