A chance to unplug and recharge, this coastal haven is in the grounds of a Grade II-listed farm and is only 1 mile from the world-famous Lulworth Cove.

Ideally located for both ease and adventure, this delightful property has it all. Soak in views of Bindon Hill and walk for less than 1 mile before joining up with the South West Coast Path. Whether you are dipping your toes in the crystal-clear waters of Lulworth Cove or walking the 2.5 mile-long stretch of the Coast Path to Durdle Door, you are sure to fall in love with the magical scenery all around. To reward your efforts, there is village shop and village pub are under 0.5 miles away from the doorstep.

On arrival, take the two steps up to the porch into the property. Here, there is space for you to take off your boots whilst immediately ahead is the lounge/diner. Decorated in light, neutral tones, the lounge is both attractive and inviting, kitted out with comfortable furnishings just waiting to take the weight off your feet. In summer, enjoy the sun’s warm pools of light flooding through the windows and in winter, spice up the ambience by lighting the wood burner and gathering around for a movie. Connected to the lounge via a service window and accessible via the hallway, the property’s well-equipped kitchen is the next place to visit. From morning to night, your daily routine is made easy with the addition of lots of helpful appliances, including a dishwasher. Put together lovingly crafted meals for the family before eating together in the lounge’s dining area with table and chairs, or if it’s sunny outside, in the garden. Before heading upstairs, you will notice the downstairs WC from the hallway. Treading the stairs to the first floor, you will come across the cottage’s two light-filled bedrooms: a king-size with basin and a twin. Staying true to the quirky character of the property, both of these rooms feature reduced head height nestled in the rafters and feature exposed beams. As well as the bedrooms, you will also find a walk-in wardrobe and family bathroom upstairs, the latter of which has a bath and separate shower.

To the front of the property, make use of the south-facing, garden with lawn area. To the rear, a second enclosed garden has two terraces (second accessed via seven steps) and outside seating. Light up the BBQ and chat away, enjoying the garden’s beautiful views of Bindon Hill.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size, 1 twin (both of which have reduced head height in the eaves)

Lovely location, a short stroll to a friendly pub with good food, a walk to the beach. Cute little cottage with lovely decor and everything you need. Great for a couple or small family (or prepare to fight over who gets to sit on the comfy sofa).
