Luxury At Lulworth
The gorgeous Cove Cottage is just about as quintessentially English as they come. This picturesque Orné style cottage, with plaster walls and shutter casement windows, dates from the 18th Century and has been carefully renovated to provide modern comfort whilst retaining the original features of the property. Just a two minute stroll from the iconic Lulworth Cove, on England’s only natural UNESCO World Heritage coastline, this thatched cottage is the perfect property for a special getaway. Immaculately furnished and finished, you’ll wake to the sounds of the birds singing in the apple tree and the echo of the waves lapping on the beach.
Please be aware that we do not recommend this property for families with small children or mobility issues due to its period features, notably the several flights of rather steep stairs.
Cove Cottage offers three bedrooms, accommodating a total of six people, each with luxury Hypnos beds. The master bedroom on the uppermost floor features a super-kingsize bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower. We provide goose down and microfibre pillows, and luxuriously crisp white Beaumont & Brown linen for your comfort. The second and third bedrooms have two single beds, which can be set up as twins or super-kingsize beds on request.
The well-appointed family-size bathroom, on the top level, has a shower over a bath and a heated towel rail. A comfortable cotton robe is also provided for each person, along with fluffy white towels, pool towels, and Lulworth body wash, hand soap and shampoo.
A reading room at the heart of the house has comfy seating, feature fireplace, telephone, and a well-stocked bookcase. The sitting room, with its sofas and large double aspect windows, features a state-of-the-art discreet TV and a gas fire log-burner.
The dining room, accessed off the entryway, has a spacious table for eight besides a gorgeous inglenook fireplace. There is a boot room for convenient storage of your coats, walking shoes and watersports equipment.
There is also a convenient utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
A fully-equipped kitchen is found on the first level of the property. The kitchen has a dishwasher, pantry, 70/30 fridge-freezer, and gas oven and grill with 4 burner induction hob. The kitchen leads directly onto the secluded paved terrace with a large table and seating for eight – the ultimate in al-fresco dining. The property’s gorgeous cottage garden, featuring established flowerbeds, mature shrubs, grass lawn and a sun terrace with table and chairs beside the bubbling spring, is equally perfect for relaxing after a hard day on the beach or water.
The pedestrianised street directly outside Cove Cottage leads through the village and its many restaurants, cafes, gift shops, The Doll’s House Confectionary Shop and ice cream kiosks, down to Lulworth Cove itself. At certain points of the day you may well have the beach entirely to yourselves, to watch the fishermen bring in their day’s catch.
The property has allocated, off-road parking for two vehicles in a privately accessed, gated driveway. Complimentary parking across the Lulworth Estate is included in your stay upon receipt of your car registration number, allowing you unlimited access to Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Lulworth Castle Park. For day trips further afield, there is a bus stop within West Lulworth village, with links to Poole, Weymouth and Swanage.
We have carefully curated a fantastic welcome folder full of information about the cottage, Lulworth and the local area. If you want to know more, our experienced holiday team are more than happy to provide recommendations for a memorable dinner, or where to pick up the best local produce. We hope you will enjoy a welcome basket of delicious locally produced bread, eggs, milk, biscuits, jam, tea, coffee and sugar.
