Rafters at Lulworth Cove

20 guests · 10 bedrooms · 13 baths
Old and new are honored in equal measure at this estate overlooking England’s Dorset coast. You can glimpse history in uplifted rocks encircling the bay and 400-year-old cottages, but the villa itself is newly built and its roof, freshly thatched. Walk or drive down to Lulworth Cove for an ice cream in town or to follow the paths that wind along the fossil-rich Jurassic Coast.
On sunny days, pull up a lounger, settle in to the sofa on the patio, or heat up the barbecue and watch boats ply the harbor below. Make a splash in the heated indoor saltwater pool or challenge friends and family in a games room with a ping-pong table.
Though the house is sensitive to tradition, with its thatched roof and bays of windows, it’s also airy and modern, centered around an open-concept great room. Cozy up to the fireplace that anchors one of two sitting areas, mingle by the bar area before moving to the dining table, and take a seat at the breakfast bar in the fully equipped kitchen for an after-dinner coffee or midnight snack.
The history of Lulworth Cove goes back 10,000 years, when the cove was formed, but the area’s history goes back to the Jurassic period, when creatures that would later become fossils roamed the land. Go back in time when you pop down to the village on the coast, stopping at the bakery or the pub, and when you walk along the rocky coast.
