The Castle Inn

The Castle Inn is a traditional Dorset pub close to Lulworth Cove, with a history dating back to the 16th century. Immaculately restored throughout, it’s the ideal base for exploring Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coastline and the beautiful countryside of the Isle of Purbeck.

Under the picture-postcard thatched roof is a charming bar, relaxed restaurant and 12 gorgeous boutique bedrooms. Outside, there’s a large paved courtyard and idyllic terraced garden with amazing views. Kids and dogs are very welcome.

Our laid-back atmosphere, stunning all-day food offering and friendly service make it the perfect home from home, where the whole family can relax, unwind and explore this unique corner of Dorset.
