  • "Could have been a bit cleaner, there were a few dirty corners."

    A coffee machine would have been nice to. Fantastic view though, much appreciated stay.

  • "This is a lovely comfortable chalet in the most amazing position with a view over Golden Cap and a brilliant walk straight out of the door up Hardown Hill, with fantastic views and safe for dogs."

    The little enclosed shingle garden is great for the dog too. Lots of really lovely walks in the area, a great farm shop at the end of the lane, and a Waitrose in nearby Bridport. Take care on the A35 leaving Bridport - I got a ticket for doing 36 in a 30mph zone I wasn't aware of! Still a fabulous holiday though!

  • "Wonderful welcome from our hosts."

    Who can resist homemade scones and jam with clotted cream?! We quite like Prosecco too!! Such a lovely welcome set us up for our week’s stay. We weathered Storm Kathleen snug in our holiday home and when she had passed we enjoyed some wild beach visits with fishy lunches. We ventured further afield as there are so many beautiful spots around High Bullen and were always happy to return ‘home’ at the end of each day. Thank you

    Thank you Property Owner

    A great position for access to both coast and inland with walks from the front door, added to this a secure environment that ensures privacy for the adults and free rambling for dogs!!

    Thank you Property Owner

  • "The Lodge feels modern and light, with a wonderful view to the sea."

    It's very quiet and peaceful: perfect if you are hoping to 'get away from it all'. It is easy to cook meals in the kitchen as it is so well equipped. The outdoor terrace is a generous size though sadly we didn't have the weather to make the most of it! The location is convenient for exploring the Jurassic Coast. Thoroughly recommend.

  • "This little treasure of a lodge is perfect, kept to such a high standard by the very accommodating owners who live a stone throw away."

    The setting is just amazing and no expense has been spared to make High Bullen Lodge the special place that it is. The Cornish tea & Rose wine on arrival was a lovely greeting..We will definitely be back! :)

  • "We wondered what it would be like holidaying next to the owners."

    It was absolutely fine. We had a thorough introduction at arrival which was very helpful. The bonus was the cream tea and wine left for us. We didn’t need the owners during our stay but knew it would be fine had we needed this. I very relaxing break.

    Fantastic view from the decking area! A lovely lodge clean & tidy and is fully equipped. To us was a home to home experience. The welcome gift (home made scone and a bottle of wine was a big surprise) Overall we have a wonderful sunny week!

  • "This is a fabulous place to stay with a great coastal view towards Golden Cap from the sunny terrace (or through the patio doors it's raining) and a fantastic walk from the door up Hardown Hill (5mins to the top, quite steep but worth it) where there are amazing views."

    And the whole area has great places to walk either within walking distance or a short drive away through pretty Marshwood Vale lanes - Pilsdon Pen, Coney's Castle, Lewesdon Hill etc etc all great viewpoints. Even with my old dog who can't do big hikes any more we had a wonderful week. Fab bluebells everywhere too. Only 4 stars for comfort because I found the seating slippery, but I got used to it and suppose that does make it easy to keep clean! The bed was really comfortable, which is much more important. Also a brilliant farm shop nearby on the main road. This was my second time here, and I would definitely come again.

  • "High Bullen Lodge is just the perfect place to spend a quiet break."

    Although it is up a short track there is very easy access onto the A35. The chalet itself is just lovely, being decorated in a seaside theme with bunting strung across the walls and an enclosed garden (down 4 steps) which is pebbly like being on the beach (no grass). Our elderly dog struggled with the steps up to the chalet and down into the garden but we manged. The only downside for us personally was that our old dog who suffers badly with arthritis kept slipping and falling on the laminated flooring. We were also kept awake by the click clack of his nails as he wandered around so a carpet or large rug would have helped.

The property

The Lodge is located at the top of a private road, which also serves the owner property and High Bullen cottage, seconds off the A35.

The Timber Lodge was installed by the owners to take in the amazing panoramic views across the Dorset countryside and down to the sea, offering something special, with a definite “WOW FACTOR”.

Inside, the holiday décor of the lodge, with the open plan living space, large windows, high ceiling and white woodburner makes it a perfect place to relax.

The skandi vibe also makes the Lodge feel special in both summer and the colder months.

Take in the views through the patio doors, opening out onto the three meter wide deck and stroll through the private shingle garden with established sub-tropical planting.

To the back of the Lodge are a master King size bedroom with en-suite bathroom and shower, and a twin bedroom with high quality full size adult beds, plus a separate family bathroom, containing both bath and overhead shower. The property is all on one level, with a few external steps to access, and private parking for one car.

About the location


Bridport 2 miles. Lyme Regis 7 miles. West Bay 4 miles.

Morcombelake is a small village located on the A35 between Lyme Regis and Bridport, in touching distance of Golden Cap - the highest point on the south coast of England - and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Home to the famous 'Dorset Knob' biscuit, the village has a small store with post office and an excellent farm shop, Felicity's.

Nearby you will find the pretty seaside village of Seatown, with its excellent pub and great fossiling beach, which allows access to the walk along the coastal path, which affords spectacular views across the sparkling waters of Lyme Bay towards Portland, Chesil beach and the Dorset coast. A short drive east takes you to the ancient rope-making town of Bridport, and the harbour at West Bay, or venture west to visit the picturesque seaside resorts of Charmoith & Lyme Regis. An excellent holiday base from which to explore this scenic area.
