Lulworth Cove in Dorset – England

Rosie Andre

Whilst in England, we decided to spend a day at the seaside to see what the south of England has to offer. We drove for around 2 hours until we reached Lulworth Cove. We took the scenic route to get there which passed through lots of beautiful bright yellow rape seed fields and small towns & villages. I miss the English countryside as it is different to the French 'paysage'. In France it's all vineyards & olive trees, whereas in England there are fields of animals and crops. Living in England, I never thought I would miss it, but I do.

We parked up, ate our packed lunch of bagels, strawberries, crisps & chocolate - yummy! We then got an ice cream for dessert from the Marshfield Farm Ice Cream shop. The chocolate & fudge ones were delicious! From there we walked down through the small village to the pebble beach, passing another ice cream parlour, a fish & chip shop and a cute café.

It was such a beautiful view with the cove giving us panoramic views of white cliffs, clear water and a couple of boats bobbing up and down. We walked along the beach whilst trying not to fall on the uneven pebbles - I'm such a grandma! We stopped around half way around to take some photographs. The pebbles were beautifully coloured, bright whites, gorgeous greys, subtle blues & some muted oranges thrown in for good measure.

After enjoying the view for some time, we walked back across the beach looking for fossils - which would be good fun with kids! We found several small ones, but I think you can do a fossil tour to be shown lots more. We then looked around the shops and saw the funnily named "Jurassic Dark" beer. We then drove around to Durdle Door.
