About the property

5 BEDROOMS WITH VIEWS, AGA AND FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN, LARGE LIVING ROOM, OPEN FIRE.

This pretty south facing country house is full of light, charm and comfort. There are 4 double bedrooms and a 5th. with 2 single beds (ideal for children). There are 3 bathrooms with traditional baths, one adjoining the master bedroom. This family home is situated fifteen minutes walk from the sea at Lulworth cove on the unspoiled Purbeck coast. It is set on a hillside with wide south facing views to the sea and surrounding fields and hills. Built of Purbeck stone around the beginning of the last century it is set in two acres of secluded terraced lawns and gardens including a grass tennis court and croquet lawn.

The very fully equipped kitchen has an Aga cooker as well as an extra oven and hob. There is a pretty spacious dining room with a large round 18th. century dining table and sideboard. The large living room has an open fire, a piano and french doors to the terrace.

There is a huge marble table with seating for summer eating on the south facing terrace and there is a sun umbrella and barbecue.

The house is secluded and situated on a terraced hillside overlooking the village of West Lulworth with views to the surrounding fields and to the sea. There are terraced lawns and gardens to the front of the house and a large enclosed area including a full size grass tennis court with croquet lawn, large trampoline and pavilion containing sports equipment and table tennis.

The Lulworth area is notable for its wonderful walks and and spectacular 'Jurassic' coastline including Durdle Door and Kimmeridge bay where there is the recently opened Etches fossil museum.

Good local places for swimming include Lulworth cove, Durdle Door beaches and Kimmeridge. Within easy reach are Corfe Castle with its spectacular ruins, Weymouth Bay and Abottsbury.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at The Lynches over Christmas 2012 and found it to be a warm and comfortable family house. We felt relaxed and happy and enjoyed the beautiful views and walks in the area. True to the description, the kitchen was a cook's delight. The house was a stimulating environment with an array of art and literature in all of the rooms. We have no hesitation in recommending The Lynches as an ideal choice for the perfect country get away. The Pooles from Surrey.



Hi Michael. Thank you. We had a fantastic holiday. The house, the area and even the weather were all perfect! The children had a fantastic time on the trampoline. With best wishes Jane



Dear Michael and Suzy Happy new year to you both. Christmas was fantastic ! The house was wonderful. Everything about it was Just perfect! The kitchen is a cooks dream, the living room with the wonderful fire, the views, the garden... I could go on and on! We spent most of our time taking long coastal walks, cooking and eating lots !!

Ideal family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday here in July 2015. Bedroom layout ideal for three generations: six adults, three boys and one teething baby! Large kitchen opening on to a side terrace was very practical and the view from the front terrace, enjoyed with a few glasses of wine in the evenings, was fantadtic. Sitting room capacious and dining room could seat 12 the day friends visited. Boys enjoyed hunting for fossils at Kimmeridge, fishing off Swanage Pier, visiting Monkey World, exploring Corfe Castle, kite flying at Chesil beach as well as the tennis court and trampoline in the garden. Short walk to Lulworth Cove. Owners very helpful when booking and housekeeper on hand to answer a couple of initial queries on arrival. Can thoroughly recommend this property.
