The Castle Inn in Dorset

Located in beautiful West Lulworth, The Castle Inn is a traditional Dorset pub and hotel close to Lulworth Cove, with a history dating back to 1660 – one of the oldest inns in Dorset.

Under the picture-perfect thatched roof, you’ll find our charming bar, relaxed restaurant and 12 gorgeous boutique bedrooms.

On the menu, our focus is seasonal ingredients, locally sourced produce and exciting pub classics, with award-winning Butcombe beer, local cider, wine and classic cocktails behind the bar.

Outside, there’s a large paved courtyard and an idyllic terraced garden with amazing views.

Rustic and cosy, The Castle is the ideal base for exploring Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coastline and the beautiful countryside of the Isle of Purbeck, within walking distance of must-see Dorset attractions like Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Kids and dogs are very welcome to dine and stay overnight, and we’re happy to cater for families and groups.
