    “We absolutely loved staying in this cottage for a long weekend this February celebrating my daughter’s special birthday with family.”


    We were so very warm and cosy and comfortable and it felt very welcoming on arrival with milk and Prosecco in the fridge and a packet of biscuits etc to start us off-very thoughtful. Such olde-worlde quaint features -lovely decor and furnished well. Spacious -ultra clean -very homely and well equipped . Loved the log burner -great focal point . Even a nice little secure garden for our little dog. Photos don’t do it justice. Location excellent -easy walking distance to Lulworth Cove and conveniently situated next door to the very friendly local village pub -great atmosphere and good food! Also a choice of lovely Tea Shops/Restaurants and a local handy convenience store! We didn’t need to drive once! Other longer costal walks available to Durdle Door etc This wonderful cottage and location ticked all the boxes -no complaints -so much so I would like to return again soon as we had such lovely time -great memories!

The property

Dating from the 1600s Ivy Cottage is a lovely thatched Grade II listed cottage sitting on the village road leading to Lulworth Cove in Dorset.

It is semi-detached to its sister cottage Little Ivy. Situated in the heart of West Lulworth, one of the most popular villages along the coast in Dorset, Ivy Cottage retains many features such as original beams and the inglenook fireplace in the living area - now with a cosy log burner.

Welcoming 2 well behaved pets you will feel comfortable relaxing in the secured garden after an exciting day out.

The house is fully equipped giving guests that ‘home from home' feel.

Lulworth Cove, famous for its geologically unique and beautiful cove is only a few minutes’ walk from the property where you will find tempting seasonal shops and kiosks including those specialising in ice cream, fudge and sea food.

Access to The South West Coast Path is also just a short walk away, where you have a choice of directions offering fantastic walks, views and scenery.

Make sure to check opening times to nearby Range walks for access to Fossil Forest and the ghost village at Tyneham.

Alternatively, you can look for some fossils and admire different landscape with Jurassic coast rocks at the nearby beautiful Chapman’s Pool, Kimmeridge bay.

Close to the cottage is The Castle Inn, a pet friendly pub with a comfortable garden.

A visit to famous Durdle Door, an iconic rock formation rising from the sea and resembling a doorway, is a must.

This is also a favoured area for snorkelling from the beach or walking along the cliffs.

A kayak tour can be arranged locally from Lulworth Cove and it's an experience to treasure as you are shown secret little pools, fossils and beaches accessed via sea only.

About a 30-minute drive to the west is Weymouth and to the East is Swanage, both are traditional seaside towns and perfect for a day trip.

On your return to Ivy Cottage after a adventurous day out why not eat alfresco in the enclosed garden whilst enjoying the last of the day's sun.

About the location

West Lulworth

West Lulworth boasts some of the most dramatic geological features on the Jurassic coast line and arguably the most photographed locations in the UK. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door sit at the heart of this area and really are a must see. Lulworth Cove has many little café’s and beach side shacks serving local seafood, ice cream and other delights, as well as several restaurants and pubs from which to choose. There is an Lulworth estate information centre which offers an insight into how the cove and Durdle door were formed and Jurassic history of the region. If you tire of Cove and cliff top walks then Lulworth Castle is a short drive away and offers another glimpse at some more recent history, along with Tyneham Village, and Corfe Castle. This is a really special area and the village retains a lot of it’s thatched cottages and has a real air of a rural retreat.
