We spent three nights in this lovely cottage. The hosts are really nice and helpful and gave us all kind of tips to make the most of our visit to Lulworth. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated and the breakfast they prepared for us were really good. If you are looking for a small place in a great location...

A truly lovely, pristine and stylish B&B!! All the tips and advice we were given were invaluable often over a very decent breakfast (including some home grown produce!) It had it all, a great location, very comfortable, impeccably clean and friendly hosts. Just bear in mind one of the rooms isn't en-suite. Would definately recommend and would love to return!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
April Thatch is a peaceful rural thatched cottage set in the quiet and pretty hamlet of Coombe Keynes just a few minutes inland from Lulworth Cove and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. It is in an ideal situation to stay for exploring the coast, the Isle of Purbeck and surrounding areas of Dorset. For walkers there are numerous stunning walks in the area. The cottage is grade 2 listed and parts are thought to date back to the 16 hundreds with a thatched roof and some cob walls. It is surrounded by the garden, much wildlife with rolling fields and woods all around. Inside is simple with white walls, wooden floors and contemporary paintings. ... more   less
