Lulworth Cove, Dorset Country Hotel

Lulworth is most famous for its Cove, a natural horseshoe-shaped inlet.

Durdle Door is the massive rock arch just a short walk from Lulworth Cove.

There’s a beautiful sloping beach for bathing and there are caves and exciting rock strata. This is part of the famous Jurassic Coast.

Lulworth Cove is exceptionally beautiful and has a timeless charm all its own; thatched cottages, fishing boats, wild flowers, gift shops and tea rooms. A coastal idyll.

Its popularity as a holiday destination is well-known, partly for the cove but also for the superb coastal walks to the east and to the west. Imposing Lulworth Castle was built as a hunting lodge in the 17th C to host hunting parties for the King and, over the centuries, it has enjoyed a colourful history and is still privately owned.

In 1832, near Durdle Door, the “Lulworth Skipper” butterfly was discovered; Lulworth’s very own butterfly!

There’s also a famous Fossil Forest, the remains of the growths that formed around tree stumps about 135 million years ago. Further along the coast, there are the ripple marks of an ancient beach.

If you’re staying with us here at Plumber Manor country house hotel near Lulworth Cove, we would strongly recommend a run out to Lulworth for the day.
