“Lulworth's best B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have been coming to Tewkesbury Cottage for 15 years, visiting 2 or 3 times per year, Jackie and Bob have become good friends and visiting has become a great escape from life in the madness that is London.
If you want an escape to one of the most beautiful places this country has to offer then look no further than here, we guarantee if you arrive frazzled you will leave relaxed and rested.
One final thing - the breakfast really is the biggest - and the best - that Dorset has to offer " 'andsome" as Jackie always says.

Jackie and Bob made us feel like part of the family. Very welcoming. Amazing breakfast and above all else doggie friendly! The room was cosy but perfect and the shower room and bathroom were spotlessly clean! Alfie, our Boxer dog, had sausage for breakfast every day which he loved. The only complaint is...we didn't want to leave! We will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to return for another stay. Thank you both.

Jackie and Bob proved to be excellent hosts. Very helpful and loads of local knowledge. Pet friendly.The BREAKFAST is by far the Highlight of the day and is worth going for on its own. I would not hesitate to recommend this delightful B&B to anyone wishing to stay in this area of Dorset.Good local pubs within walking distance for evening meals and Lulworth Cove is only a 5min walk away. 5 Stars all round.

Room Tip: ignore the swimming pool rating, they don't have one and Trip Advisor won't let you delete i...

Back again to stay at Jackie & Bobs. It really feels like coming home. They treat you like family not paying guests. Room clean, loads of hot water & the most magnificent breakfast you are ever likely to see They are also so pet friendly, they love our Persie. If you want to stay at a quiet B & B, in a picture postcard location, this is the place for you. We will be returning very soon.

This was our second visit to Tewkesbury Cottage this year and it did not disappoint. Jackie and Bob are great hosts and really enjoy having you there and especially meeting our two dogs, Monty and Rosie. Sausage for breakfast each day for the dogs, they loved it!! Great setting, lovely cottage and only 3 mins walk from the pub!! Will be back again next year.....

We had a fantastic time on our 4day break at Tewkesbury Cottage the kindness and hospitality of Jackie and Bob was superb nothing was to much trouble.The rooms were spotless, plenty of hot water.Our Dog Jase a Black Labrador had two sauages for breakfast every morning. Jackie cooked a megga breakfast for us. They are both great characters and good fun.
We will be going back to stay again hopefully in the near future with Jase (can`t wait)
Thanks Jackie and Bob for a really great break you both made it for us.

We have been coming to Lulworth Cove and the surrounding area for over five years now and this time we brought the kids with us.
We have always chosen Tewkesbury Cottage as it has this magical feeling about it. We always have a lovely stay there and Jackie that runs it is really great, a real character with a fantastic smile and generous nature.

The kids (two boys, 12 and 3) loved staying there and after long days at the beach and crab fishing it was a peaceful and welcoming environment to have a great sleep. (our 12 year old especially liked the flat screen TV in the room to watch movies at night)

Breakfast was fantastic as always, one of the best English Breakfasts you'll have!

The rooms are very sweet, cosy and clean and it really feels like how a thatched cottage should feel.

The shared bathroom/toilet were clean and had easy access to the bedrooms.

The price was very reasonable and accommodating.

I would recommend Tewkesbury Cottage to everyone, it really is a fantastic place to stay and with it being run by Jackie for over 25 years it is one of the oldest and established Thatched cottages is West Lulworth.

Peter, Annica and family ( August 2012 )

Room Tip: It really doesn't matter...they are all beautiful and cosy.
