the Old Vicarage was just what I wanted - lots of space to gather my grown up family. A short stroll to the coast for sea swims and a 5 minute walk for a great Sunday lunch at The Castle Inn makes this home so easy. We played croquet, enjoyed the open fire and enjoyed feeling as if we'd been invited to someone's quirky home for the weekend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Missed having a BBQ. 10 to 15 minute walk to the village down an unlit private road. We would definitely return. Very peaceful and only a 15 minute drive to the coast. Good cafes, two pubs and a small general shop for essentials plus a few tourist shopsRead more in the village. Bus service to the coast and Newport. Hide

We had a great time at the house. It is ideally situated for Lulworth Cove with lots of great (if challenging) walks nearby. Close enough to walk to the cove, but far enough away to avoid the worst of the crowds. Lovely garden - enjoyed playing croquet on the lawn!

Well equipped spacious property with a unique style - both lounges lacked comfortable seating, but the dcor was in keeping with the age of the property. Showers and baths were a bit temperamental so make sure you read the owners instructions! It's very well located, with local pubs nearby, and within walking distance of Lulworth Cove.

Amazing property, a lot bigger than the photos suggest. We had a great week and couldnt fault it. The position is ideal, really quiet and just a short walk to the Castle Inn and store, just 0.75 miles to Lulworth Cove. We especially liked the garden which was dog proof.

The house is beautiful and location perfect for accessing the coastal path and a range of beaches. The house has a comfortable lived-in feel with lovely vintage kitchenware to use. Huge living rooms and lots of space for two families to share. It was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. The garden is great for games and eating out
