Keen cooks will delight in preparing delicious meals in the stunning contemporary kitchen, which is fitted with chic white units, quartz worktops and state-of-the-art appliances.

The cottage was very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. The location was excellent for country coastal walks.

The Cowshed is a comfortable place to stay and well appointed which we would recommend as we enjoyed our one week holiday there.

We spent a lovely week in this comfortable, well equipped cottage. Sky TV was a bonus. Nice outside space with super views. Lovely walks from the door (obviously quite steep in places) with stunning scenery. The deserted village of Tyneham, a few miles up the road, well worth a visit but check opening times. A couple of nice meals in The Castle InnRead more, but be sure to book, and 2 lunches in the Lulworth Cove Inn, equally nice. Would definitely stay in this cottage again. Hide
