    “Lovely property, everything you could have wanted.”

    And lovely garden to sit in. Key safe bit temperamental might need looking at. Little shelf in bathroom radiator side could be helpful.

The property

Little Ivy is a pretty thatched Grade II listed cottage dating back 400 hundred years, situated in the heart of West Lulworth, one of the most popular villages along the coast in Dorset.

It is semi-detached to Ivy Cottage. Little Ivy can accommodate up to three guests in two bedrooms, both on the first floor.

With living area and electric fire, dining table and well-equipped kitchen it’s a perfect holiday home for a couple or small family.

Just a second away from the cottage is The Castle Inn, pet friendly pub with a lovely garden.

Just a few minutes stroll from the property is Lulworth Cove with stunning and geologically unique cove.

Make sure to try out tempting seafood shacks (all seasonal) with locally caught fish and crab.

You can taste one of the best ice creams from the small local shops.

Here also you will find quite a few pubs serving food with beautiful views. Once you in a cove, you will find yourself right on the South West Coastal Path with abundance of walks to both directions.

One will lead you to Weymouth via arguably most photographed place in the UK – Durdle Door arc and if you venture further, you will be taking one of the most challenging walks through the rolling clifftops with most beautiful scenery around; rolling Dorset countryside on one side and sea from the other with the sight of the Isle of Portland leading the way.

Take a trip to a picturesque Corfe Castle village, enjoy delicious cream teas and take awalk around this lovely village.

Corfe Castle ruins is one of Britain's most iconic survivors of the English Civil War and offers fantastic Dorset countryside views around.

Holiday 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.

If you don’t want to eat out, return to the cottage and dine alfresco in the garden.

Spend your holiday in a pretty cottage with your loved one and enjoy exploring the beautiful Jurassic coast.

About the location


Wareham 9.1 miles; Weymouth 14.7 miles

West Lulworth boasts some of the most dramatic geological features on the Jurassic coastline and arguably the most photographed locations in the UK. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door sit at the heart of this area and really are a must see. Lulworth Cove has many little café’s and beachside shacks serving local seafood, ice cream and other delights, as well as several restaurants and pubs from which to choose. There is an Lulworth estate information centre which offers an insight into how the cove and Durdle door were formed and Jurassic history of the region. If you tire of Cove and cliff top walks then Lulworth Castle is a short drive away and offers another glimpse at some more recent history, along with Tyneham Village, and Corfe Castle. This is a really special area and the village retains a lot of it’s thatched cottages and has a real air of a rural retreat.
