Little Ivy is a pretty thatched Grade II listed cottage dating back hundreds of years, situated in the heart of West Lulworth, one of the most popular villages along the coast in Dorset.  Just a few minutes stroll from the property is Lulworth Cove famous for its geologically unique and beautiful cove. Also just a stroll away is the Dorset Coastal Path, ice cream shops and tempting seafood shacks (all seasonal).  Here also you will find two pubs serving food and offering views. Another pub just a second away The Castle Inn is pet friendly and has a good garden.  The nearby Durdle Door, a large rock formation likened to a doorway, arising from the sea, is a must visit attraction; a popular beach offering snorkelling and cliff walks.  A lazy trip along the coast will take you to Swanage in the east and Weymouth in the west. Days can be filled with activities such as a boat ride along the coast, walking along the coastline searching for fossils or exploring the many geological and historical sites nearby. Returning to the cottage you may choose to dine alfresco in the small garden.   Ivy Cottage which is semi-detached to Little Ivy is perfect for a larger group or if you'd like to book two cottages together.

Miss T Blackadder
Little Ivy was exactly what we hoped for, cosy, charming and very clean. The cottage was absolutely lovely inside and the owners had made sure we had everything we could possibly need. It was so helpful to stay in a place where kitchen basics like washing up liquid, salt & pepper, bin bags etc were provided and you weren't having to bring a mountain of stuff just for a few nights. The milk, wine and biscuits were very much appreciated too. It was a short walk to the beautiful Lulworth Cove and from there a stunning walk to Durdle Door. We enjoyed our stay so much and would not hesitate to stay at Little Ivy again. Stayed February 2018

We chose Lulworth for our first family holiday. Little Ivy Cottage was PERFECT. It was the perfect size for the two of us, our 10 month old daughter and our dog. it felt very homely and comfortable. The house keepers were fantastic and gave us lots of details about the area on our arrival. There was also a dog box with treats, towels and spare leads, a bottle of wine and biscuits on our arrival which was lovely. It was very close to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, which were both excellent places. The location of the cottage was also good to get to coastal beaches and we covered a lot of the coast in our weeks stay. We have booked again for next year as we fell in love with Dorset and we cant wait to stay in Little Ivy Cottage again. Thankyou for making our first family holiday memorable. Stayed May 2017

Mrs C Bilic
This cottage was beautiful and better than we expected.Its location in West Lulworth was ideal with a pleasant walk to the cove and its amenities.The attention to detail was unbelievable from the bottle of wine for us, flowers, dog biscuits, bowl & towels to the hand soaps, cling film, tea coffee etc the list is endless and absolutely everything you could need. We have rented a lot of properties in the UK and abroad and this was the best equipped of them all.Thank you. Stayed March 2017

My wife and I loved our stay at Little Ivy - our dog loved it too. It was perfectly sized for us, contained all we needed, was clean, cosy and perfectly situated for our needs. West Lulworth & Lulworth Cove, for us was a perfect place to relax and recharge for a week with our dog. We will be booking again for next year without doubt - stayed October 2016

Mrs G Jones
Lovely little cottage. Room for parking one car. Good size bedrooms and nice bathroom. Nice garden with patio furniture. Is on the main road but was not noisy. Weather cold while we were there so used the central heating. The cottage was warm within a few minutes. All bed linen and towels were lovely. Would recommend the place and stay there again. 10 minute walk to the cove and a real ale pub next door. Stayed June 2016

Mr K Foreman

Miss Ayers
We had a brilliant holiday. The service received from staff when booking the holiday was excellent. The cottage was beautiful in a wonderful location and everything went smoothly so we could relax and enjoy our break. Would recommend dream cottages to friends and use again next time we venture down that end of the country. Stayed May 2016

About the Location

Lulworth Cove is one of the most beautiful natural landforms in the world. Perfectly set along the Jurassic Coast, the area is steeped in geological history and the coastal path enables you to walk along for miles taking in the magnificent views of the cove. Along from Lulworth Cove is The Durdle Door, another fine landform that resembles a doorway in the sea where you can snorkel and swim and generally admire the beauty of it all. Then there is the village of West Lulworth, an absolutely charming village with thatched chocolate box cottages and a lovely cosy pub. A perfect countryside retreat by the sea.
