Went to Durdle door first paid £4 to park (minimum you’ll need if going to beach for better view). If unsteady walking then this is not for you. Mother in law couldn’t make it down the steep hill as very uneven and stoney. The steps...More

The scenery and the natural beauty is fantastic. The walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door is great. But the negatives are all man made . The car park charges - £6 ! With no alternative . The path leading towards Durdle Door has been...More

Some great walks but very busy, even out of season, the walk to Durdle door is a good staring point. Theres a limited choice of places to eat and drink in the evenings

The door is as amazing as it looks in pictures but the parking closes fairly early and there is nowhere else nearby to park. We stopped in the coach parking on the advice of a nearby resident and were lucky not to get a ticket....More

Been here twice and it really is a must do. Take water 💦 it is a bit of a journey to the top. It’s a great place to spend a few hours.

After a steep descent a beautiful rocky beach where you can have a relaxing day. Usually is not crowded, easy to find a solitary spot. Not accessible for those with movement difficulties.

I think there was a newsagent type shop near the main car park in Lulworth but not sure of opening times and range of papers at this time of year.

There are plenty of places that accept pets in Dorset. It maybe better to go for a cottage let than a guest house or vote.
