Vist pretty villages with chocolate box thatched cottages and the stunning Jurassic coastline in this AONB. Great area for walking, fishing and bird watching.

Manor Court Cottages are set in the picturesque village of Shipton Gorge. Within walking distance, 110 yards, are the village playing fields and pub selling the famous Palmers Ales and local food. This a fantastic location to explore the Dorset countryside and World Heritage Jurassic coastline, 1½ miles away. Whether its a family holiday, walking, bird watching, fishing, cycling or for a quiet break Manor Court Cottages are ideal. The pretty village of Burton Bradstock, 1½ miles, has a beach with a café, shop, post office, garage and pubs. The market town of Bridport, 2 miles away, has a lively and vibrant street market Saturdays and Wednesday, along with small shops, cafés, antiques and local food can be found, or pop into the museum and learn its history of rope and net making.
The picturesque harbour of West Bay is 2 miles away and was made famous by the TV drama ’Broadchurch’, while the village of Abbotsbury, 3 miles away, is popular for its swannery, sub-tropical gardens and childrens farm. Spread along the coast from Sidmouth is a host of attractions, including the Donkey Sanctuary and Beer Caves at Seaton and Axminster where you can ride on the trams or eat at the River Cottage restaurant. Into Dorset try fishing in a boat out of the cobb at Lymm Regis, fossil hunting at the museum or a walk up Golden Cap for the breathtaking views. Weymouth with its sandy beaches and Sealife Centre is well worth a visit, discover the dinosaurs at the Dorchester museum or travel back in time with a visit to Thomas Hardy’s cottage, go to war at the Bevington Tank Museum, or say ’hi’ to the monkeys at Monkey World. Enjoy a dip at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door for a sightseeing walk, explore Crofe Castle, and then all aboard the steam train at Swanage. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

    We had a wonderful girls weekend away at Sparrow. The accommodation is excellent they have thought of everything to make your stay easy. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The welcome pack was a lovely touch that added to our experience. The gentleman who welcomed us was lovely and resolved the missing DVD player immediately so we were able to watch the film we brought with us. We needn’t have worried about bringing one though as in the games room there is a large range of DVDs books and games for everyone to borrow! We would definitely return and highly recommend to everyone.

    Spacious cottage with a wow factor. It was very warm, clean and well decorated, very well equipped. The bed was comfy, the shower was powerful, roomy and loads of hot water. A super welcome pack even included dog treats. Everything worked as it should and we could find fault with nothing.

    This was the second time we have stayed at Sparrow, it was delightful - the new manager could not have been more helpful. I needed to have an oxygen machine for the duration and it was installed ready for when we arrived. The ambience of the cottage and its surroundings makes for a restful time. We have booked to return next year.

    All the beds were very low and not comfortable; the double bed was seriously unlevel. In a cottage of this price, not to have wifi in the cottage is a big weakness in this day and age.
