A guide to Lulworth Cove, the gem of Dorset

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

You may have noticed that I haven't posted anything in a fair while, I'm sorry! I've been lucky enough to have spent time in both Dorset and Spain recently, so I want to share both of these with you.

I stayed with my family in a lovely little village called West Lulworth, just up the road from the famously picturesque Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. The scenery in this area is just stunning with some breathtaking views and crystal clear waters. That alone made this area perfect for a relaxing break away from home.

So what did I get up to?


I ate (and may have drunk) SO MUCH on this holiday, no regrets whatsoever. Lulworth Cove itself has a few restaurants/pubs just up the road so we mainly dined in these. If you're into fish then there is plenty of choice here as restaurants and pubs get fresh catches of fish daily and means menus are changeable and very interesting! The Lulworth Lodge (that's where the goblet of Pimms was from) and Lulworth Cove Inn were my favourites here. Also if you're into your cider, then there's a pub about a mile from here called The Castle Inn which has a massive selection of local ciders.

There was also a lot of ice cream, everywhere.


All the photos above are from the nearby seaside town of Swanage. The seaside here looks like something from a painting! It's so pretty and such a traditional British beachfront full of holiday goers so had a great atmosphere. We spent a lovely day here gauging on pizza and ice cream for lunch and exploring the various art shops and pier.

I definitely didn't nearly buy the 'Bitches Who Brunch' Candle.

Sandbanks is another beach around 30 minutes away, a perfect stretch of sandy coastline, perfect for a whole day out at the beach.

Durdle Door is nearby; quite an iconic beach with the arch and is fairly easy to walk to from Lulworth Cove.


Of course! I had a super relaxing week here and ate and drunk a ridiculous amount of very tasty food! The views round here have you in awe of the beautiful coastline and leave you wanting to explore much more. There's also numerous coastal paths you can walk on which take you to other beaches that equally as pretty. Being near Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth means you're not far from bigger towns and amenities which also have lots to offer

I hope you enjoyed my post on Dorset and will get writing on one about Spain ASAP!

  2. Oh myyyyy, such lovely pictures, makes me miss it so much! You definitely saw the best of the local area, Johnny Depp has a house in Sandbanks and sent his two kids to school there! And Swanage is my ABSOLUTE favourite place that I used to go to almost once a week back when I still lived at home. And yes, there is ice cream EVERYWHERE. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip there!!
