The Rafters is a place to make lifelong memories - plenty of space to chill and read a book or enjoy the many sofa areas and have lovely conversations with family or friends. Sam was very helpful and at the end of the phone if we needed anything. The pool is stunning and the location is amazing if you want to get away from it all and enjoy the most beautiful area in Dorset.
Stunning, amazing - wow! This house was a joy to stay in. The attention to detail was incredible. Every guest room had a theme and every ensuite was unique! The house provided for everything and if you ever did need anything then the house manager was on hand! The location is superb in the small cove inlet area of West Lulworth and the views amazing! Not to mention the pool and games room. Highly recommended.
Amazing!! That’s the only word I can use. The hospitality and everything was just perfect. The house manager Sam, was so helpful and always so responsive with questions I had. I celebrated my engagement and birthday party here. Really spacious and the swimming pool and games room is definitely the highlight. Kept everyone entertained during the rainy days! Will definitely be going again.
We stayed at this property with 4 families, which a mixed age range of children, and everyone absolutely loved it! It caters for all ages with the swimming pool keeping the children entertained during the day and the cinema room at night! Because it was such a large group we organised a chef (as recommended by the host) and it was a real treat to have dinner prepared for us whilst we enjoyed a drink at the house's bar. Great location for local sight seeing and we went to Stairhole, the Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle. Ate in great local pubs including one that had reggae music and fantastic jerk chicken. The spot is fantastic and the view incredible and we were thoroughly spoiled by the weather! Everyone had a blast and we will definitely be back!
