Walking is mans best medicine

~ Hippocrates

The Coast... a refuge from the stresses of everyday life


If you love walking with breathtaking coastal views then you're in for a real treat when you come to Lulworth Cove and surrounding Jurassic Coast Bays and Coves. We have walking guide books in your guest room so you can decide which way you'd like to walk, and how long! Walking west towards and past Durdle Door is never restricted, but walking East along the South West Coast Path is sometimes restricted because it passes through the Military of Defence firing ranges, called the Lulworth Ranges. Here are all the dates you need to plan your walking in this direction:
