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. An ideal, quiet location for a short few days break, lots of gems to visit in the area, good local pub, Bridport is a pleasent town, Dorset is a gem of a county. May 2012.
  2. Lovely location - only a few minutes drive to the beach. Accommodation was clean and the bedrooms were a good size. There was an en suite attached to the master bedroom which we hadn’t expected and it had a great shower. March 2012.
  3. A very well thought out cottage with all the things you need and minimal fuss. Great value for money with a lot of thought given to those staying in the cottage, such as provision of the little things like tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine. The owners are also very friendly and can’t do enough to help. August 2011.
  4. Comfortable, very clean, excellent community run pub 3 minutes walk away. July 2011.
  5. Lovely property but would be nice to have had the outside area enclosed for the dogs. April 2011.
  6. The location is well suited for the coast, but be aware the area is quite hilly if you are a keen runner. The cottage was clean pleasant and quiet, and certainly worth a return visit.
