Lovely Halcyon Cottage in West Lulworth is available to rent for your own personal writing retreat – or for a few friends to escape together (NB not all bedrooms have writing desks). Formerly the Women’s Institute hall for the village, it now is a very comfortable three bedroom/two bathroom cottage, sleeping 5/6 people, with a wood burning stove to keep it cosy in winter.
Upstairs is a master bedroom, with a comfy king-size bed and small writing desk, a generous bathroom with separate shower, and a twin bedroom with another writing desk, looking out over the courtyard behind. Downstairs is another double bedroom, a shower room, a galley kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and generous fridge/freezer, and a sitting/dining room with a feature Purbeck stone fireplace.
When you need a break from writing, you can walk from the front door onto the cliffs above Lulworth Cove and to Durdle Door, or simply stroll down to the cove and pick up some fresh fish for supper. There are plenty of places to eat at the Cove, and The Castle, a famous thatched pub is just around the corner from the cottage also. Book it just for yourself, for a couple of writers, or with non-writing friends who are happy to walk the cliffs and beaches while you work. In school holidays, it is only available for full weeks, but out of season, it can be booked for long weekends and short breaks.
