Property Description

Manor Court Cottages are set in the peaceful village of Shipton Gorge, less than 2 miles from the stunning Jurassic coastline. Within walking distance, 110 yards, are the village playing fields and pub selling the world famous Palmers Brewery Ales and delicious pub food. The picturesque harbour of West Bay has been made more famous by the TV drama Broadchurch highlighting the outstanding beauty of the coastline. You can enjoy many walks along the footpaths on the coastline and inland enjoying an AONB. The pretty village of Burton Bradstock is just 1 mile away, which is dotted with chocolate box thatched cottages, a lovely little beach with a cafe, shop and pubs. The market town of Bridport, 2 miles away, once famous for its rope-making industry, was Thomas Hardy’s Port Bredy and has lots of little shops, cafes and a fantastic selection of pubs and restaurants, along with the twice weekly market where local produce can be sampled as featured in the popular ‘River Cottage’ TV series. Lyme Regis and Weymouth are great places for fishing and watching the world go by. Weymouth also has a great family beach, the winner of a seaside award. Spread along the coast are the other beach resorts of Bournemouth and Poole and the beautiful Victorian Swanage with its steam railway. Fossil hunters will enjoy the world famous beach of Charmouth. The family can have a great day at Monkey World, Bovington Tank Museum, Weymouth Sea Life Centre, Abbotsbury Swannery, Sub Tropical Gardens and Childrens Farm. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The Property was excellent. Beds were very comfortable, en-suite shower room was great. The Bathroom was also very nice according to my mother & father In-Law who shared the accommodation with us. Will definitely be back. Oct 2012.
  2. Great location to explore Jurassic Coast. Very quiet spot but not too far off the main routes. Safe area for children to play in. Aug 2012.
  3. Sparrow cottage was very clean & well equipped and in a nice quiet location with pub a short walk away and only a short drive from the town of Bridport. The owners Keith & Denise were very friendly & only next door should any problems arise. July 2012.
  4. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation. Very quiet and peaceful. Within walking distance of the Jurassic Coast. Lots of places to explore. Very friendly owners. April 2012.
  5. This is the second time we have stayed on this complex and I can highly recommend it. Sparrow is smaller than Swallow but just as nice and has lovely views of the valley. It’s 2 minutes drive to Burton Bradstock and Hive Beach and 5 minutes from Bridport and West Bay. Try The Riverside seafood restaurant at West Bay for a special occasion or The George for any evening out. The Anchor in Burton Bradstock does good food too! A lovely spot with easy access to lots of interesting places. April 2012.
  6. Great place for a peaceful, relaxing break. Lots of public footpaths within very easy reach from the cottage giving access to the lovely Dorset countryside. Feb 2012.
  7. Unfortunately I forgot to leave a message in the visitors book which is a shame as the cottage was lovely and absolutely spotless. It was spacious & had everything we needed. We were able to take our puppy Jack & there was plenty of room for his crate and paraphernalia! Dec 2011.
  8. A very quiet and relaxing location, plenty to see and do what ever the weather! Great for coastal walk’s but be prepared for steep hills! Aug 2011.
  9. Owners very helpful, lovely accommodation and very near all the places to visit. Excellent. Aug 2011.
  10. This was a beautiful cottage with everything you need for a good holiday. It was spotless and had lots of good extras for families, including a safe place for children to play outside and toys in the playroom to share. July 2011.
  11. The cottages are very well equipped, a real home from home and the pub New Inn a walk away! We had a family holiday but the location suits all ages, we would certainly return, congratulations to Mr & Mrs Sorrell for such a high standard. May 2011.
  12. Parents of small children and dog owners need to be aware that the fencing around the property is not secure. The property overall was excellent and when the shared washing machine went wrong the owner kindly did our washing for us. Would certainly stay at the cottage again. May 2011.
  13. No village shop but an excellent pub. Very good hosts at pub. Food very good as well. Lovely church and grounds. Not far from Burton Bradstock with its good beach and excellent Hive Cafe. Cottage was all that you would want, clean and comfortable. We’ll be back. March 2011.
  14. We had a really excellent stay, lovely place and owners were lovely. April 2011.
  15. Countryside location ensured we had a peaceful holiday. Aug 2010.
  16. It was clean, tidy and had everything you would have in your own home. Aug 2010.
  17. Good location, very clean and well equipped. Aug 2010.
  18. The rooms were well presented, clean and modern. Additional facilities were laid on, e.g. use of washing machine & dryer and equipment for the children to take to the beach. Shower & bath facilities were excellent. When we go on holiday its important that the standards of accommodation at least match those at home. We felt very at home for the duration. July 2010.
  19. The cottage was on one level, ideal for elderly or disabled. Also great layout mixing modern fittings in a traditional cottage setting. Very comfortable throughout. Main bathroom would have been complete with wall-mounted shower. Oct 2009.
  20. Modern, comfortable, easy access, helpful owners. Oct 2009.
