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.

  1. 1st class property run by first class people. Denise and Keith are genuinely sincere, kind peopke. Spacious, comfortable and clean. June 2012.
  2. Swallow cottage is spacious,spotlessly clean, comfy, warm and very well equipped. We self cater and the kitchen was excellent meeting all of our needs. We found the location peaceful and a lovely place to come home to each day. It is on a working farm so expect some farm smells. In March it was no problem for us. Feb 2012.
  3. This is one of the nicest places we have stayed. The ’cottage’ is light and airy and extremely comfortable and spacious, especially as there were just the 2 of us! The kitchen is lovely and very well equipped and I loved the en suite shower! The owner was very helpful. It was very quiet being February but we were lucky with the weather and went to the beach every day. We were actually house-hunting so were quite busy! We had a special meal at The Riverside in West Bay. I would highly recommend the food and hospitality at The Anchor - 2 minutes in the car at Burton Bradstock! Hive Beach and the cliffs are easily walkable from BB although the car park is free if you are NT members. Altogether a lovely property in an excellent location! Many thanks to the Sorrells! Feb 2012.
  4. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was in the cottage. Friendly and unobtrusive owners on site. A good pub up the road serving food and real ale. Very well located to explore the Dorset coast and countryside. All in all highly recommended. Aug 2011.
