  • Comfortable family home from home with clean, crisp tones and nautical themes near Lulworth Cove with space for four people and two lucky canine pals
  • South-facing enclosed garden perfect to relax in and enjoy the peace and quiet
  • A stone's throw from natural beauty spots and many coast and countryside walks
Property code: DC028

A chance to unplug and recharge, this coastal haven is in the grounds of a Grade II-listed farm and is only 1 mile from the world-famous Lulworth Cove.

Ideally located for both ease and adventure, this delightful property has it all. Soak in views of Bindon Hill and walk for less than 1 mile before joining up with the South West Coast Path. Whether you are dipping your toes in the crystal-clear waters of Lulworth Cove or walking the 2.5 mile-long stretch of the Coast Path to Durdle Door, you are sure to fall in love with the magical scenery all around. To reward your efforts, there is village shop and village pub are under 0.5 miles away from the doorstep.

On arrival, take the two steps up to the porch into the property. Here, there is space for you to take off your boots whilst immediately ahead is the lounge/diner. Decorated in light, neutral tones, the lounge is both attractive and inviting, kitted out with comfortable furnishings just waiting to take the weight off your feet. In summer, enjoy the sun’s warm pools of light flooding through the windows and in winter, spice up the ambience by lighting the wood burner and gathering around for a movie. Connected to the lounge via a service window and accessible via the hallway, the property’s well-equipped kitchen is the next place to visit. From morning to night, your daily routine is made easy with the addition of lots of helpful appliances, including a dishwasher. Put together lovingly crafted meals for the family before eating together in the lounge’s dining area with table and chairs, or if it’s sunny outside, in the garden. Before heading upstairs, you will notice the downstairs WC from the hallway. Treading the stairs to the first floor, you will come across the cottage’s two light-filled bedrooms: a king-size with basin and a twin. Staying true to the quirky character of the property, both of these rooms feature reduced head height nestled in the rafters and feature exposed beams. As well as the bedrooms, you will also find a walk-in wardrobe and family bathroom upstairs, the latter of which has a bath and separate shower.

To the front of the property, make use of the south-facing, garden with lawn area. To the rear, a second enclosed garden has two terraces (second accessed via seven steps) and outside seating. Light up the BBQ and chat away, enjoying the garden’s beautiful views of Bindon Hill.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size, 1 twin (both of which have reduced head height in the eaves)
  • 1 bathroom: bath, shower cubicle (with reduced head height in the eaves) and WC, 1 separate WC on the ground floor

Beautiful well equipped cottage. 5 minutes walk to a good local pub. Easy walking distance to Lulworth Cove and the coastal path. Ideally located for access by car or bus for other Dorset attractions.

What a lovely small cottage so near to the village of Lulworth and the nearby beach and country walks. There are a few pubs/restaurants within walking distance and many a short car journey. Due to the pandemic, food choice was limited but all of the establishments were working hard to accommodate their customers. Only drawback we found is that DorsRead moreet Council are obviously lacking money if you see the charge for car parking everywhere, where you have to pay a minimum of 5 pounds for up to 4 hours Hide

This cottage was a perfect location to explore Lulworth and surrounding areas and the secure front and back gardens were ideal for families with children/dogs.
