This five-bedroom property is a great choice for a family holiday in an excellent setting within the heart of the village and has direct access to the coast path leading to Lulworth Cove.

West Lulworth draws many visitors for good reason. The stunning Jurassic Coast runs beside the village and includes the much-photographed landmarks of Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. The village has a good selection of amenities including a shop and pub and is ideally placed for touring the local beaches, with Kimmeridge and Ringstead Bay being within easy reach. The county town of Dorchester is 10 miles north-west or visit historic Wareham 7 miles to the north-east. Here you can walk within the old walls or enjoy lunch beside the river. Those looking for a family-friendly day out can visit the Sealife Centre in Weymouth or Abbotsbury Swannery .

A flight of external steps leads to the main entrance into this detached property. Once inside you are met with a useful boot room, which leads into an inner hallway with a separate WC. Just opposite is the bathroom, which has a bath, separate shower and WC. A door leads from the hallway into a striking open-plan lounge/diner, perfect for family get-togethers. Set to the front of the property is a spacious lounge with a cosy wood burner and Smart TV, ideal for settling down together and watching a film after a day spent exploring. In the dining area, there are patio doors overlooking the garden. Just next door is the contemporary kitchen, which is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Across the lounge/diner you will find three bedrooms, two of which are super-king-size (which can be made up as twins on request) and there is also one twin room. A flight of stairs leads from the dining area to the first floor where there is another super-king-size bedroom (which can be a twin) and a king-size bedroom set into the eaves. Please note some areas are height restricted. The king-size has an en-suite shower room with shower and WC.

Heading outside via either the dining area or kitchen brings you onto a generous patio area with garden furniture. Fairly steep steps and established stone borders lead from here up the hillside to an area of lawn with wonderful views. Due to the changes of level and unenclosed pond care should be taken with children. From the top path at the rear (accessed by a path from the road two doors away), you can directly access the coast path leading down into Lulworth Cove. There is parking on the driveway for two cars. Further roadside parking is subject to availability at the front of the property.
