A state-of-the-art holiday home with a serious ‘wow factor', secluded in Dorset's breathtaking Lulworth Cove for an unforgettable group break.
  • Sleeps: 16
  • Bedrooms: 10
  • Bathrooms: 10
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights

Lulworth Cove is uniquely scenic and steeped in breathtaking beauty, owing to its idyllic position along the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

Sleeping up to 16 guests in exceptional comfort, we defy you to find a setting as ideal as Rafters, for a large group break that demands celebrity-style luxury.

This staggering, 10-bedroom home is a true sight to behold, and that’s before you’ve even entered. The gorgeous thatched roof hints at home comforts galore, while expansive windows and well-positioned skylights showcase the most incredible views.

Inside, you can expect every holiday luxury you can think of, from a gleaming copper-topped bar that’s perfect for pre-dinner cocktails, to a huge cinema room for relaxed movie nights. There’s also a dedicated pool complex, complete with a heated pool for serious swimmers, and a fun splash pool for the youngsters in your group.

Meanwhile, the kitchen is amply equipped to cater for your every culinary need, whether you’re doing the work yourself, or hiring a private chef for your special celebrations. Oh, and each of the ten individually-styled bedrooms (one of which you’ll find on the ground floor), is en-suite and climate-controlled for the ultimate in relaxing comfort.

Curl up by the huge open fire by evening, swapping holiday stories with a welcome post-dinner tipple. Or retreat to the fully enclosed, wildflower-strewn garden for a sizzling barbecue instead, where the kids are free to run wild as you bask in views of that spectacular golden sunset.

When morning rolls around, cradle a steaming mug of fresh coffee on the terrace, as you gaze romantically out towards the coast.  Tearing yourself away from Rafters could prove difficult, but there’s so much to see and do right on your doorstep that it could be a shame not to indulge!
