  • Countryside Mobility South West

    Accessibility

    Lulworth Cove is one of the most iconic locations on the British coastline and thanks to our partners at the Lulworth Estate, an all-terrain scooter allows you to explore it in a way never possible before.
    This short but spectacular route offers clifftop views of Stair Hole, perfect for seeing the folded layers of rock, and takes you down to the crystal clear waters of the Cove. You'll understand why this coastline has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    Afterwards you can find out more at the Heritage Centre and enjoy refreshments at one of many eating places in the village.

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.
