Set in the corner of the West Courtyard, this fabulous pet friendly cottage is well appointed and offers comfortable space for up to 4 adults with 2 children, plus up to 2 dogs. Please be aware that due to the cosy nature of the living areas and bedrooms, we do not recommend this property for 6 adults.
The cosy, underfloor-heated open plan living and dining/kitchen area makes for a sociable and relaxed atmosphere, with an electric log-effect burner, two two-seater sofas around a flat screen TV and DVD player, and two beanbags providing additional seating. There is a farmhouse style dining table to seat six, and an open plan kitchen area. The kitchen is very well equipped and features a dishwasher, fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave, and gas oven and grill with electric 4 burner hob.
Bedroom 1 is a twin room (which can be arranged as a superking if needed) and looks into the West Courtyard. Small but perfectly formed, Bedroom 2 is a king size bedroom, with added storage under the ottoman bed. This room also benefits from uninterrupted views from the full-length glass doors overlooking the countryside towards Lulworth Cove. At the other end of the property, Bedroom 3 enjoys the same countryside views, and contains a bunk bed to sleep two. We advise that these beds are best suited to children.
The family bathroom sits between bedrooms 1 and 2, and has a shower over the bath. There is another separate toilet adjacent to bedroom 3. Fluffy white towels, pool towels, and Lulworth body wash, hand soap and shampoo are all provided for you.
We hope you will enjoy a welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, locally sourced milk and biscuits. There is also good free Wi-Fi for your use.
The main door opens onto the sunny shared gravelled courtyard, which is ideal for sitting outside on your wooden garden furniture, with easy access through the Games Barn to the shared heated swimming pool (open April – October) and Games Barn. In the West Courtyard sits the laundry room, with a washing machine and tumble drier, clothes airer and iron and ironing board for your use. You will also find freezer space allocated to The Old Shop here.
A maximum of 2 well behaved dogs are welcome and well provided for; you will find food and water bowls, a towel and poo bags for your dog(s).
Allocated parking for one car is included in the West Courtyard parking area. 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 200m from the Cottage with links to Poole, Weymouth and Swanage.
