Built in the 17th century, this magnificent building is steeped in history. Originally built as a hunting lodge to entertain aristocracy and royalty, it was for centuries the family seat of the Weld family, the current owners of the Lulworth Estate. Ravaged by fire in 1929, it has been partly restored in a pioneering partnership with English Heritage.
With extensive parkland, woodland walks, a children’s playground and spacious grounds where you can enjoy a walk or a picnic. Or visit the Castle Tearoom for light refreshments and souvenirs.
