Property details

Inside

Welcome to the Old Bakery

Snuggled down into the rolling Jurassic hillside, this Dorset, Grade II listed cottage will make your heart swell. It is one of Lulworth's original thatched cottages dating back to the 1600's. This close-knit community is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which includes Lulworth Cove, a short stroll from the cottage. Or you can walk up Hambury Hill to the famous Durdle Door – a refreshingly bracing walk.

The Old Bakery, as its name suggests, was an integral part of the village in the seventeenth century. Internally the cottage has been completely renovated to a very high standard and every effort has been made to retain the character of the property whilst understanding the needs of modern living. Stepping into the sitting room, the bread oven is now a feature of the room and opening the door and glancing into the cavernous space, gives you a glimpse into the past. The log burner sitting next to the oven, makes this a really cosy room, where I’m sure you would feel at home too:

“The best thing in the world, is sitting by the log burner in the winter, with the weather whipping through the village”.

The recently fitted kitchen is an elegant and tranquil space, painted in pale grey and blue. Centre stage is the island and a dual fuel Rangemaster™ cooker, a thoughtfully designed bespoke area for socialising and cooking. Natural stone flooring completes the timeless feel of the room. The cottage entices you in with its romanticism, indeed there is a feeling of creativeness in the air – from the bread that has risen over the years, to the fine art now produced by the present owner.

The dining room is ideal for entertaining family and friends. The owners remarked that ‘spending Christmases at the cottage have been an absolute joy, a few drinks at the Castle Inn Pub and back for a traditional roast dinner, perfect.’

The lounge has been adorned with handmade curtains using Peony and Sage™ material which gives the room a feeling of calm, light and comfort. An elegant and peaceful place to be. The newly installed log burner is nestled in front of the original baker's oven with plenty of space to stack wood, just perfect for warming yourself after a winters walk to the Cove or a night in snuggled by the fire with a good book and a glass of wine.

Making your way upstairs you will use the locally forged handrail, and at the top you will find a large landing with space for a dressing table and chest of drawers. The property boasts four large bedrooms, the principal bedroom with en-suite has a super king bed with lots of room for bedside tables. There is also a great deal of space in the built in wardrobes and cupboards leading to the bathroom. A magnificent roll top bath is perfectly balanced in the middle of the bathroom. The second and third bedrooms can comfortably accommodate king-sized beds and one has a built in wardrobe and the other a large freestanding wardrobe. The fourth bedroom has been converted into a home office/artists studio. This studio currently has inbuilt drawers and shelves. This bedroom could easily be reverted back into another bedroom.

Outside

The garden is truly magical, outside the kitchen window is the courtyard garden with pretty log store, the attractive courtyard is a perfect place for morning coffee or breakfast. Walking through the gate, you will find steps that lead up to the outdoor lounge area, where you can while away the hours marvelling at the breathtaking views of the cottages below and fields beyond:

“There’s nothing like sitting up here on the raised terrace, with a glass of something watching the world go by".

Further on up the garden, steps and a gate have been added to give easy access to the shady footpath on Bindon Hill, leading directly onto South West Coastal Path where you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Jurrasic coast.

The large gravel driveway accommodates parking for up to 4 cars and leads to the detached garage.
