Property code: CHRIC

This property is located in the village of West Lulworth, a pretty coastal village, the main road of which leads down to the horseshoe shaped beach at Lulworth Cove. The village itself has a number of shops, as well as a range of restaurants and pubs, which make it a wonderful place for an enjoyable seaside holiday. The beach is a sheltered pebble cove, which is popular with both swimmers and rock-poolers alike, and is also a good location for diving. Some of the region’s most stunning scenery can be admired from the coastal path between West Lulworth and Durdle Door, and walkers will be rewarded with one of the most iconic seaside views in England.

This contemporary property is a wonderful place to enjoy a coastal retreat with its comfortable accommodation and close proximity to the beach at Lulworth Cove. On the ground floor, guests will find two bedrooms, the first of which is a pleasant double room, whilst the second is a restful twin room. The main bathroom is also on this floor and offers a shower-over-bath and WC. Stairs lead to the first floor, home to the spacious light filled open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge with wonderful views across the surrounding countryside has plenty of space to relax and unwind on the comfortable sofas and chairs in front of the TV/DVD and the realistic wood burner effect electric fire. Glass doors separate the lounge area from the kitchen/diner, a bright space where there is a dining table seating eight and all the equipment that guests will need to make themselves at home, including a double oven, hob, fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The washing machine is kept separately on the ground floor of the property. A further flight of stairs leads up to the second floor, where the master bedroom suite can be found. This king-size room is a wonderfully peaceful space in the eaves of the house, but the sloping ceilings do mean there is some reduced head-height on this floor. The en-suite bathroom to this room boasts a double-ended bath, separate shower, and WC. The further adjoining twin room can make this level a family suite if desired.

French windows from the dining area lead out to a patio and balcony with garden furniture, itself leading onto a lawn area with views over the surrounding countryside, including Hamburg Tout. Please note, the lawn area is quite steep so very young children should be accompanied at all times.

  • 4 bedrooms: 1 king-size, 1 double, and 2 twin (please note the second twin room is accessed via the main bedroom)
  • Bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC, plus en-suite bathroom with a bath, separate shower and WC to the king-size bedroom
  • TV/DVD included
  • Kitchen: oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine
  • Electric wood burner effect fire
  • Stairgate available
  • Parking for 2 cars, plus additional parking in roadside slip road
  • Shops, pubs and beach within walking distance
  • This property will be decorated for Christmas
  • Arrival: 16:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details
  • Sorry, no dogs allowed
  • There is an Accidental Damage Deposit of £350 when booking at this property, however this may be waived for £40. We’ll provide more details about this when booking your holiday.

A lovely stay in a comfortable and relaxing house. Great location for swimming or paddling in the cove. Excellent for coastal walks and lots of places to eat nearby. The beds were very comfy and we loved the well designed spacious kitchen. It really was a home from home. We also had great positive communication with the owners.

Christopher Cottage is comfortable, well equipped, nicely decorated and well designed for mixing, with bedrooms spacious enough for quiet time if required. Climb to the top of the garden for a peaceful view of the hills. The house is close enough to the cove for a quick walk to watch the waves or a to take longer stretch over the hill to Durdle DooRead morer. Note of caution: Tall people need to take note of the description on the website and be prepared for low sloping ceilings in parts upstairs. Hide

The cottage couldn't be in a more perfect location - it is the definition of 'perfect'. You are minutes from some amazing ice cream, bacon butties in the morning and the crab and lobster burger is fantastic from the place by the slipway. Lulworth Cove is gorgeous too and is my new happy place. The walk up the road, over the hill behind the house anRead mored back along the beach must be done. One of the most enjoyable holidays we've ever had. Everything close by. Durdle Door walkable to avoid traffic. Hide

This lovely house was perfect for our needs. So close to the beach with a sea breeze. The three level house allowed two families both privacy and space for socialisation. Many lovely walks are easily accessible and the bus is almost on the doorstep. We had a wonderful stay and are thinking of returning next year. Thank you.
