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.

    Accommodation was very spacious in a pretty and peaceful location. Excellent location for exploring local areas such as the delightful Abbotsbury sub tropical gardens, Bridport and West Bay, nearby Weymouth and stately homes like Sherborne Castle. People in the local shops and eateries were all friendly and helpful.

    An absolutely lovely bungalow with great amenities. Unfortunately as a light sleeper the sky lights in the bedroom meant I got very little sleep, but that's just me, a blind would have been good though.

    Lovely little cottage, perfect for a quiet country retreat. A short drive to beautiful local beaches. A great pub in walking distance and a supermarket ten minutes drive away. WiFi was only available in small communal area - but we liked that! We would visit again!

    We enjoyed our stay in Swallow Cottage very much. It was warm, comfortable, very clean and well equipped, with a dishwasher, washing machine, and tumble dryer. The bed and easy chairs were comfortable, and the shower was very efficient. It was one of the best cottages we have stayed in.

    Excellent cottage, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location was lovely and quiet but very near to all amenities and the beautiful jurassic coast.

    We enjoyed a very peaceful stay at Swallow Cottage. We had some excellent meals at the village pub, and all the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Having a childrens' play area at the top of the road was an added bonus as our children could run around and let off some steam. They had a wonderful time.
