About YHA Lulworth Cove

Offering coastal and countryside experiences, this timber rural retreat on the edge of a fishing village has plenty to keep everyone entertained for a great Dorset family holiday or weekend break. 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. Relax in the licensed restaurant after a hard day exploring.

Camping is available on some nights of the year. Bookings must be made direct with the hostel – please call them on 01929 400 564

Manager recommends

  • Take a walk to the top of Bindon Hill, for a panoramic view of the coast from St Aldhelm head to Portland Bill. Don’t miss the breathtaking views of the oyster shaped cove. Enjoy the abundant wildlife and the historic landscape as you stand on an iron-age hill fort - perfect for a Dorset family holiday or weekend activity break.
