What we have to offer

Please note: All prices are based on hiring the whole place per night.

This purpose-built, single storey, cedar timber clad building is minutes from Lulworth Cove. In a cul-de-sac on the edge of the tranquil, fishing village of Lulworth, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with views across the fields. The main draw of course is Lulworth Cove itself, a Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

Surrounded by views of the Dorset hills, it’s only a one mile walk to the famous Lulworth Cove. For activity breaks, the South West Coastal Path passes close by, or if you're on a cheap family break, the kids will like Tower Park Leisure Centre, Monkey World or the nearby Tank Museum.


The self-catering kitchen has three twin burner and grill stoves, one normal domestic oven, one large fridge, one small chest freezer, one microwave, two toasters, two kettles and a range of kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery for 34 people. Tea towels are provided.

Catering Options are also available - please contact the hostel for further information.


The hostel has 34 beds arranged in 2x6, 2x5 and 3x4 bed rooms. One of the four bedded rooms is en-suite and all rooms have washbasins. All bed linen is provided.


There is space in the grounds for 11 cars.
