About the Owner

I have managed holiday homes in Lulworth for 25 years. We have lived here since 1990 and Moonfleet was our family home. We now live next door but one and rent Moonfleet out for holiday lets. We have decided to manage these bookings ourselves and hope to bring a more personal and helpful touch to visitors to this area.

Beautiful place to stay - both the Moonfleet and the surrounding area!

  • 5 of 5

We found Moonfleet very well kept and sorted, it is a lovely house and is great for a group to go and stay. Mr & Mrs Marsh were very welcoming and made us feel at home. I will be recommending Moonfleet as a place to stay to friends and hope to be able to come back sometime!

Would recommend to all

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed here for a weekend and bedrooms were all arranged to suit 5 couples, all beds very comfy too. The house itself is much bigger than it looks from the outside, even the photos don't do the size justice. The house was very bright, airy and clean with plenty of storage and all looking newly decorated. There was plenty of seating for 10 people in the living room and in the garden, there are two BBQs and the kitchen is large and fully stocked with all the extra utensils you could need. The garden is large and gorgeous and the house is in close proximity to Lulworth cove, an easy walk. Every one of us had a brilliant stay here and plan to come again, every year if possible! Could not fault it at all or rate it any higher

Location

From the Owner

We love West Lulworth for different reasons. My wife used to come to Lulworth as a child with her parents. I came here with a Geography field trip. We moved from Greater London when our children were young, escaping to the country!

Moonfleet is a detached house with a large south facing patio and natural garden in a quiet lane in the pretty village of West Lulworth. Bindon Hill, above the fields behind the house, separates the house from the sea; it is only a short walk to the famous features of Lulworth Cove, There is a footpath at the top of the garden which takes you down to the Cove avoiding the main street. Durdle Door (a bit further) and The Fossil Forest which are on the World Heritage Coastal site: these take you back 135 million years to the time of the dinosaurs!!. Durdle Door, another outstanding coastal feature, is a short drive away or a stimulating walk over Hambury Tout. Here you can also join the South West Coast Path towards Weymouth or Swanage. . At the cove there are a number of cafes, restaurants and a pub plus a fish shop which supplies freshly caught local fish. The Lulworth Cove Heritage Centre provides interesting insights into the history and geography of the area; there is a geology and fossil section and displays of smuggling and sailing. You can hire a kayak and venture out beyond the headlands of the Cove or take a ride in a rib to Durdle Door.

Eleven out of fifteen of the most popular attractions in Dorset, listed by Trip Advisor, are within a 30 minute drive. Monkey World at Wool, The Tank Museum at Bovington, Tyneham Village, Corfe Castle, Wareham and Dorchester, both historic market towns, and the seaside resorts of Swanage, Studland and Weymouth. There is a ‘pick your own farm’, farm shop, garden centre and delightful café at East Holme just 10 minutes away. At Wareham, which has a weekly market on Saturday mornings, you will find a large leisure centre, including swimming pool, tennis courts and gym, two supermarkets, art gallery, numerous shops and cafes and the River Frome. There is an RSPB bird reserve with lots of walks at Arne, a short drive from Wareham. Boat rides on the river and around Poole Harbour make a great day out. Brownsea Island, in the centre of Poole Harbour, is a must. You can picnic, walk, sit on the small beaches or, if you are really lucky, see a red squirrel. The National Trust runs a full programme of events– plays, family trails, guided walks – in case that tires you out there are 60 benches where you can just sit and stare at the wonderful views.

At Weymouth, a traditional British Georgian seaside resort, there are lots of things for children and adults. A beautiful sandy beach with Punch and Judy, very safe swimming, trampolines, sand sculptures and rides will keep the children happy for hours. Unrivalled panoramic views can be seen from the Weymouth Tower (53m high), the viewing capsule rotates slowly so you can take it all in. Weymouth is also home to the Sea Life Adventure Park. Swanage also has a wide range of attractions, one of the most popular is the Steam Train which takes you to Corfe Castle. This iconic medieval castle, run by the National Trust, is a favourite haunt for adults and children alike. Discover 100 years of the castle’s history and take part in some of the action packed programme which runs from April to September. There are very good teashops and model village too. Swanage also has a large country park at Durlston with fascinating exhibitions, shop and café. You can see a variety of wildlife and birds, you may even see dolphins or puffins!

Our local county town, Dorchester, has a large weekly market on Wednesdays, lots of shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, cinemas and arts centre, pubs, museums and Roman Town House. Near Dorchester at Tolpuddle you can visit the Martyrs Museum, with exhibits that explain how the martyrs struggled for survival on pitiful wages and why they decided to form a union. It charts their transportation to Australia and their eventual homecoming as freemen.

For a more relaxing holiday you can sit and enjoy our south facing patio, use the barbecue and enjoy the peaceful location. We have a large garden where children can explore, make camps and play. If you enjoy walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, golfing, gliding or kayaking all of these are available nearby. We have lived in the area for 25 years so can give you lots of advice about things to do. There are many more attractions - stately homes, Thomas Hardy's Cottage, Maiden Castle, day trips to the Channel Islands. Just too many to describe here but we are very happy to help. We live just two doors away so always on hand.

Facilities

From the Owner

Moonfleet is very near Lulworth Cove but far enough away from the busyness of it. You can stay at home in seclusion or you can walk, bike or travel locally to most of the top tourist attractions on Dorset. Then within 30-40 minute car journey are nearly all of the large Dorset towns and fantastic countryside. Moonfleet is an excellent centre for so many different holidays - family fun, relaxing, sport, bird watching and walking. Shopping, pubs, cinemas, theatres, National Trust sites are all nearby. And when you drive - you generally just drive with little traffic to hold you up. Not least, there are many opportunities to enjoy a Dorset Cream tea.
