A cosy retreat for smaller families or couples, ideal for touring the picturesque countryside, villages, beaches and the Jurassic Coast.

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.

    The cottage was great, we had been before, I would have liked Mobil phone signal or a Wi-Fi to contact friends and family.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments, as the new Owners we have made this a priority to receive better mobile and Wi-Fi to the cottages, we hope you enjoyed your holiday with us.

    Very clean and spacious with everything we needed. Some furniture a bit tired but ai understand it has just been taken over by new caretakers. Towels need replacing. The location is good, a cess to Brodport and local beaches is by narrow roads unfortunately but all wuite close. The only reason we wouldn’t stay there agaon is that there was no mobile coverage for any of the 4 networks we were on and the only wifi was riht next to the roiter in the reception area, sometimes. But if those things are not important, I would recommend this place.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We hope you enjoyed your holiday, other than the Wi-Fi not being too good. Just to let you know, as the new owners, we have now changed networks for better reception and are slowly upgrading the cottages to bring them up to a higher standard; your feedback has been most helpful, thank-you.

    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!
