Ivy Cottage, semi-detached to its sister cottage Little Ivy, is a lovely thatched Grade II listed cottage dating from 1600s which sits on the village road leading to Lulworth Cove in Dorset. In the heart of West Lulworth, one of the most popular villages along the coast in Dorset, Ivy retains many features such as original beams and the inglenook fireplace in the lounge - now with a cosy log burner. Just a few minutes stroll from the property is Lulworth Cove, famous for its geologically unique and beautiful cove. Walking down to the cove you will find tempting seasonal shops and kiosks including those specialising in ice cream, fudge and sea food. Just a short walk away is the Dorset Coastal Path, where you have a choice of directions offering fantastic views and scenery. Just a second away, The Castle Inn is pet friendly and has a good garden. Also in Lulworth is Durdle Door, an iconic rock formation rising from the sea and resembling a doorway, do visit - it also has a popular beach offering snorkelling and cliff walks - remember your camera! A kayak tour can be arranged locally from Lulworth and it's an experience to treasure as you are shown secret little pools, fossils and beaches. http://www.jurassiccoastactivities.co.uk/.
