Property code: DC093

This idyllic detached 17th-century thatched cob cottage has been lovingly extended and adapted to offer superb accommodation for a family looking to enjoy West Dorset’s pretty countryside and coast.

With Weymouth to the west (15 miles) and Swanage to the east (16.5 miles), the village of West Lulworth makes a perfect base for exploring the Purbeck region of Dorset. There are plenty of walks to enjoy through the countryside and along the coast, with both Lulworth Cove, a famous spot for fossil hunting (1 mile), and the natural arch of Durdle Door nearby (1.5 miles). The magnificent Lulworth Castle is a little way inland (3 miles). This is a fantastic base for exploring the Jurassic Coast, with Ringstead Bay (11.5 miles) and Kimmeridge Bay (8.5 miles) offering wonderful views. A little further afield are the market town of Dorchester (13 miles) and the seaside resort of Bournemouth (22 miles).

Entering this picturesque Grade II listed cottage via the thatched porch you will find yourself in the charming and welcoming lounge. A lovely space to relax in, it offers plenty of comfortable seating, TV/DVD and a number of original features including exposed beams, a Purbeck stone floor and a traditional wood burner set in a stone fireplace. There’s also a light and inviting dining room. Four steps lead up from the lounge into the kitchen which is fully equipped with an oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. There’s also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. Three steps lead up from the lounge to the first bedroom, which is a cosy dual-aspect double room. Three steps lead down to the en-suite shower room with low eaves which is complete with a shower and WC. A further seven steps lead up to the second landing where you will find the twin bedroom, which features a window seat, exposed ceiling beams, a stone chimney and low eaves.

Steps lead from the path at the back of the cottage up to a raised lawn which has views over the hills and is fenced off from the steep slope above the path. Off-road parking is available for one car.

Linden Lea is every bit and cosy and homely as it looks in the photos. We loved the higgledy piggledy layout. There was plenty of space for our family of 4, and we had everything we needed to make meals and relax in the cottage. The fireplace was a major feature and it was a shame we didnt get to use it because it was so hot the week that we stayedRead more. The beach and main restaurants etc are about a 15 minute walk away which was perfect as we liked being away from the crowds. Hide

A lovely little cottage in a very pretty village with easy walking/cycling access to the cove, Durdle Dor and local pub. Our 2 boys (11 and 9) loved it here and I wish we had bought our dog because she would have been welcome in all of the pubs and cafes locally!

Quaint cottage near Lulworth Cove. Easy 10-15 min walk to the cove although it's a very busy road. Be aware there is an army camp on the doorstep we were disturbed by loud active gun fire on two days/nights.

The cottage was in a lovely location with a pub shop and beach within walking distance. The cottage was very clean with lots of character. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us.

Charming thatched cottage, short walk to nearby pub, 10 minute walk to local shop, and 15 minute walk to the beach , whatever the brochures say! Lulworth Cove is stunning and the West Lulworth, it's village is very pretty. I would recommend this to an adult/teenage party but not those with babies and toddlers or those with limited mobility as thereRead more are limited pavements and narrow roads as this is an old village. Getting around with a push/wheelchair would be challenging. Hide

Great location but now tired and needs some TLC. No outside light so unable to use garden at night. Furniture in bedroom needs repairs, bed uncomfortable and lighting in bathroom not suitable at night.

Lovely cottage, clean, cosy and well equipped, in a perfect location for exploring the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage when we finally gained entry. The locks were very difficult to operate. We had to grease both front and back. There were also other items that needed attention in the cottage. However the location is idealic and the cottage has been extended very sympathetically for the period and we found the quirky layout very Read moreappealing. Hide
