A step back in time just 200 yards from Lulworth Cove. Rose Cottage is a delightful self-contained thatched property with four double bedrooms and a child`s twin (Single). Proximity to Lulworth Cove and the Jurassic Coast and all its spectacular scenery and secret beaches, together with use of the Swimming Pool at the neighbouring Hotel, makes this an ideal choice for the extended family holiday. Delightful gardens with sea views are an additional attraction. A woodland walk leads direct from the garden to the top of Bindon Hill, immediately above Lulworth Cove. This is a wild flower and butterfly paradise for the keen nature lover. Walk straight out onto those Coastal Walks! Family sized kitchen and formal dining room as well as sitting room with log burning stove makes this a particularly lovely winter/Christmas venue. The cottage has also been used as a base for wedding parties using nearby Lulworth Castle. Linen and logs are provided. Children and dogs are most welcome. Sleeps up to 10 people comfortably - and still a lovely place to stay with a smaller party.

Rose Cottage is a typical old world thatched cottage with beams and low ceilings. The bedrooms are fully furnished but not spacious. Extra cots are a possibility in the three double rooms but camp beds would be a tight fit. The twin room could accommodate an extra bed and the single has a small pull out bed making this a child's twin. There is bed space for 9 adults but numerous children could be fitted in as well. The cottage is a remarkably spacious family house and absorbs large numbers comfortably. As well as a kitchen table and formal dining table there is a small conservatory which can be used as a children's dining area. All rooms have Freeview television with DVD.
|Further details outdoors|

There is no main road traffic and the Cove is less than 5 minutes walk. It is possible to gain access to the Coastal Footpath from the back garden. The front of the cottage has a small rose garden with bench seat which is gated and secure for small children and dogs. The back of the cottage has a paved enclosed area with access to the large garden and orchards above. The hotel swimming pool which is heated from May - October is situated high above both properties with stunning sea views. Cottage guests may use the swimming pool in season (May - Oct) at no extra charge.
Minimum stay of two nights or more. Bookings direct to owners by phone or e.mail. Bookings can be made for the whole cottage to be taken on a self-catering basis only. There is a ground floor room within the cottage which would be suitable for the partially disabled with small steps from the room to the ensuite shower.
About this location
The Dorset region
Rose Cottage is situated on the Jurassic Coastal Footpath. The Jurassic Coast is a Unesco World Heritage Site rich in geology. It is the most spectacular stretch of coast with undulating white cliffs and hidden bays. The beaches of St. Oswalds, Mon o' War and Durdle Door are within walking distance of Lulworth Cove which is the most accessible of all the beaches. Lulworth Cove beach is a mixture of grit and stone with safe shallow swimming and an abundance of rock pools to explore. Lulworth Cove has its own fishing boats and fresh Lobsters and Crabs are a feature of the Sea View Restaurant at Cromwell House Hotel.
10 miles from the Market Town of Wareham, Lulworth Cove with its perfectly scalloped shape, is a world famous landmark in the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Other places of interest in the locality are Corfe Castle, the Swanage Steam Railway, Swanage and Weymouth, traditional Seaside Towns with many attractions, the Tank Museum at Bovington Camp and of course the now famous Monkey World. Bird lovers will find us well situated for the RSPB reserves at Arne, Radipole Lake and Studland Heath. The coastal walks are rich in Wild Flowers and Butterflies, This is an ideal location for photography and painting. Courses are available at the Cromwell House hotel, see our website www.lulworthcove.co.uk

A hurtful and disappointing review not reflected in the other posts. The cottage receives a full service on every check-out and a personal check from the owner before each arrival. Fresh linen is provided as part of the rent. The cottage is warm and cosy with the additional attraction of a wood-burning stove and free logs.
