Please ensure you contact us as soon as possible to let us know if you will be arriving after 7pm.

However, if you do arrive earlier, you are welcome to park in one of the marked bays in our car park. Facilities, including toilets can be found in Lulworth Cove, which is a 5 minute walk, turning left out of our driveway. Please note that one car parking space per room booked is provided. If you have more than one vehicle, there is some street parking on Church Road, adjacent the Church or in the Cove main car park.

The balance amount of your booking is payable on departure by credit/debit card, cash or Bindon Bottom Gift Voucher. Invoices are available on request.
During your stay - Our aim is to offer all our guests a relaxing and tranquil stay and we kindly ask guests to respect other guests’ quiet enjoyment and relaxation.
We carry out our housekeeping between 11am and 2pm each day and will require access to your room during these 3 hours. If you are not planning on being out during these hours, please let us know.
Guests are not permitted to have visitors to their rooms without our prior agreement.
Accidents happen - please let us know immediately of any damage or spillage so that we can attempt a speedy repair or clean. Spillages are more easily rectified the sooner they are dealt with. Any significant breakage or damage may result in a charge for replacement, repair or specialist cleaning. If the damage means the room cannot be made available in good time for the next arriving guests, you may also be liable for loss of income.
We appreciate muddy shoes/boots and wet clothing being left in the entrance porch where we provide a radiator for drying purposes.
Any item taken from the rooms without our consent will be charged for. Lost keys will incur a £50 charge.
We are close to the MOD ranges and Gunnery School so you may experience some noise from this on occasions.
Liability - We do not accept any liability for any damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions, unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves.
Thank you for your co-operation. We look forward to welcoming you and hope you will have a relaxing and enjoyable stay with us.
