Bishops, which overlooks the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, was once the home of the Wordsworths (Bishops of Salisbury) and stands on the edge of Lulworth Cove, sheltered by Bindon Hill.
Originally two cottages dating back to the 1650’s, the building is one of the oldest in the village and, the extensions and additions having been made with care, remains one of the finest architectural features of Lulworth. The gardens overlook the beautiful Lulworth Cove and there is a large swimming pool for our guests. We also have a running machine located by the pool for guests’ use.
Bishops boutique hotel is on the cliff top of the world heritage Jurassic coastline, a stone’s throw from Lulworth Cove and the iconic Durdle Door. A beautiful stretch of coastline to the east joins Lulworth Cove with the stunning Studland Bay and shores of Sandbanks and Poole Harbour.
The countryside surrounding our coastal accommodation provides some excellent excursions in and around modern day Dorset and Thomas Hardy’s Wessex. Popular places steeped in history include the Isle of Purbeck, Corfe Castle, Swanage and the Saxon town of Wareham.
Beautiful Lulworth Cove and the surrounding area. The pubs, restaurants, cafes and beaches of Lulworth Cove and the picturesque village of West Lulworth are within easy walking distance of Bishops.
Lulworth cove is arguably one of the most beautiful parts of the Devon & Dorset World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and makes up part of the much-celebrated South West Coast Path. The area also sits within the officially designated Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Great walking country… with 30 miles of practically unspoiled coastline and countryside this area of Dorset boasts unparalleled walks, coastal views and beaches.
