Truly a Dream Cottage and definitely a coastal cottage, The Old Bakery is a Grade II listed thatched holiday cottage in the beautiful Dorset village of West Lulworth. This luxury cottage has a luxurious standard throughout and includes interior design touches, fittings and furnishings which are a pleasure to behold and ensure guests have a delightful stay. 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 minute 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. If visiting in the summer do try to manage an outing to Lulworth Castle to watch the jousting knights. 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 at the raised decked area which has wonderful views over the village.

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.
