    “Excellent location!”

    Cottage immaculate with high quality furnishings. Very comfortable! Location of Londis (just across the lane) was very convenient! Cottage is on the main route into Lulworth Cove, so expect traffic to be passing from early morning. However, the fantastic facilities and comfort of the property far outweigh a few early awakenings!

The property

The Chapel is an exquisitely converted semi-detached property resting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just a short stroll from the striking Jurassic coastline.

Sleeping up to six guests, this stunning chapel conversion provides the perfect home-from-home for a family or group of friends seeking a memorable holiday in the coastal village of West Lulworth.

Stepping into the property, you immediately notice the high ceilings, large windows and fascinating suspended walkway connecting the two first-floor bedrooms; an unusual and fascinating feature that gives a contemporary and chic feel.

The ground floor is lined by underfloor heating, keeping your toes warm as you step over into the open-plan living space where a large woodburning stove sits prominently in the sitting area, providing extra warmth on those chilly winter nights.

The expansive open-plan space is bright and airy with the light from the wide windows creating a beautiful flow through the ground floor of the house, with the well-equipped kitchen being close to the dining area, allowing all hands on deck when it comes to cooking up a tasty meal to enjoy whilst reminiscing on the day's adventures had.

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.
