From Lulworth to Lyme Regis: A 155km-long Beauty Spot

Lulworth Cove is full of amazing sites from Durdle Door, a striking cliff formation, to Lulworth Crumble which is well worth a visit on its own. Little Jurassic coastal villages such as Charmouth, Beer, Budleigh Salterton, Kimmeridge and Swanage offer enough day-trip delights to fill a fortnight’s holiday in a Jurassic Coast cottage on the East Devon or West Dorset coastline. Take a trip to the quaint seaside town of Lyme Regis and wander along The Cob, a massive harbour wall. Feel the sea-wind in your hair just as the ‘French Lieutenant’s Woman’ did all those years ago. 

To the East, the sea beneath the cliffs at Portland Island played host to Olympic sailors, while the cliffs have weathered the storms along the Channel for millions of years. A Jurassic Coast cottage is a popular choice for walking holidays mixing coast and countryside. The South West Coast Path in particular, provides a stunning cliff-top view of the rocks and beaches below, with many a quaint tea-room or pub in which to rest tired legs to be found along its route. Head inland a mile of two from the coast for and discover a magical rural retreat or a farm cottage to book, surrounded by woods, fields and chuckling streams - yet still within easy reach for days on the beach.
