With the best seats in the house for views of Lulworth Cove, Rafters is a spectacular showstopper. Set a five-minute walk back from the crescent shaped cove, this luxurious beach house in Dorset is perfect for a trip with friends or family to the famous Jurassic Coast.
Set atop a gently sloping hill, the striking white house has bird’s eye views of the bay from the vast terrace. Rattan sun loungers and sofas make an ideal spot for watching the boats bobbing in the cove, with a fire pit to keep you warm into the evening. Expertly designed, the lower ground floor is built into the grassy slope, where you will find a vast indoor heated pool with walk out terrace, so you can throw back the floor to ceiling glass doors for indoor-outdoor living. The terrace leads onto the lawns and the manicured meadow beyond, big enough for a marquee for a special event or simply a summer soirée.
The fun doesn’t stop outside though. Indoors you will find a games room complete with ping-pong table, darts and music speakers so you can play to your own playlist. A cosy snug dotted with squishy bean bags also makes for the ultimate movie night.
Spacious open plan living makes this luxury house in Lulworth Cove perfect for entertaining. Shake up a cocktail at the contemporary copper topped bar and enjoy a sundowner with views of Lulworth Cove from the sea view armchairs or in front of the roaring log burning fireplace. The modern open planning living and dining area means you never have to leave the action. But should you want to find a private nook for time with a book, a bright sky light is suspended above the stair well, making the spacious second-floor landing living area and library a warm sun trap in the day and a cosy retreat under the stars by night.
Ten bright and airy bedrooms each have their own unique en-suites, which are masterpieces of design in themselves: the shamrock green and night sky blue tiles are on trend and our personal favourites.
With many of Dorset’s famous beaches dotted along the coastal path that runs below Rafters, this luxury beach house in the south of England is perfect placed for a week by the sea.
