Lulworth Castle House
Lulworth Castle House stands in the 18th Century Park at East Lulworth, 200 yards from the family seat it was built to replace - Lulworth Castle.
Lulworth Castle House was built by Wilfrid and Sally Weld, the present owners of the Lulworth Estate at a time when it proved to be both impractical and unaffordable to proceed with their plans to restore and rebuild the Castle. It was completed in 1977.
The treasures in the house come from several sources. Regrettably, the chattels in the Castle were lost to the family and most of those to be seen have been repurchased by the last three owners. Many of the pieces have come from Ince Blundell, collected in the late 18th Century. Lastly, some pieces have been purchased specifically for the house.
