This idyllic detached 17th-century thatched cob cottage has been lovingly extended and adapted to offer superb accommodation for a family looking to enjoy West Dorset’s pretty countryside and coast.

With Weymouth to the west (15 miles) and Swanage to the east (16.5 miles), the village of West Lulworth makes a perfect base for exploring the Purbeck region of Dorset. There are plenty of walks to enjoy through the countryside and along the coast, with both Lulworth Cove, a famous spot for fossil hunting (1 mile), and the natural arch of Durdle Door nearby (1.5 miles). The magnificent Lulworth Castle is a little way inland (3 miles). This is a fantastic base for exploring the Jurassic Coast, with Ringstead Bay (11.5 miles) and Kimmeridge Bay (8.5 miles) offering wonderful views. A little further afield are the market town of Dorchester (13 miles) and the seaside resort of Bournemouth (22 miles).

Entering this picturesque Grade II listed cottage via the thatched porch you will find yourself in the charming and welcoming lounge. A lovely space to relax in, it offers plenty of comfortable seating, TV/DVD and a number of original features including exposed beams, a Purbeck stone floor and a traditional wood burner set in a stone fireplace. There’s also a light and inviting dining room. Four steps lead up from the lounge into the kitchen which is fully equipped with an oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. There’s also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC. Three steps lead up from the lounge to the first bedroom, which is a cosy dual-aspect double room. Three steps lead down to the en-suite shower room with low eaves which is complete with a shower and WC. A further seven steps lead up to the second landing where you will find the twin bedroom, which features a window seat, exposed ceiling beams, a stone chimney and low eaves.

Steps lead from the path at the back of the cottage up to a raised lawn which has views over the hills and is fenced off from the steep slope above the path. Off-road parking is available for one car.

Thoroughly enjoyed the short stay in Linden Lea Cottage during Christmas, it's a cosy well maintained cottage with lots of character and plenty of walks directly from the property including a local pub within a short walk.

A really comfortable cottage, well appointed and equipped. As we had a large Range Rover the parking space was a little tight, but apart from that no problems. Dorset Managed Services also very helpful.

Immaculately clean, well maintained and comfortably furnished. Loved the location - some great walks, easily accessed, and within easy walking distance of the village shop, the beach and the pub which served lovely food. The steps up to the small garden could be a bit of a challenge but, otherwise, a great holiday stay.

Wow! What an amazing cottage and in a stunning area. The cottage was absolutely perfect, very homely & cosy, with everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay.
