  • “Difficulty with the traffic noise in the morning as the property is right on the road.”

    I know double glazing may not be allowed due to the age of the property, but some insulation would be good.

    I know double glazing may not be allowed due to the age of the property, but some insulation would be good. I fully recommend the pub next door, particularly for take aways, as you can just pop in and have a meal to take home in 20 mins. Very friendly & helpful staff.

Seconds away from the cottage is The Castle Inn, a pet friendly pub with a lovely garden.

Be sure to try tempting seafood from the seasonal shacks most serving locally caught fish and crab.

A must is the best ice creams from the small local shops.

There are also several pubs serving food with beautiful views. The South West Coastal Path runs through Lulworth and with abundance of walks in both directions you are assured some spectacular cliff top views.

Don’t’ forget to walk over to Durdle Door for those who enjoy an energetic walk.

Corfe Castle, part of Enid Blyton’s inspiration in her Famous Five novels is just a short drive away and with it’s castle ruins and stone village cottages is a beautiful place to visit.

About the location


Wareham 9.1 miles; Weymouth 14.7 miles

West Lulworth boasts some of the most dramatic geological features on the Jurassic coastline 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 beachside 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.
