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 enjoyed a week's break with my wife's Mother who is not terribly mobile, so the single storey cottage Woodpecker suited us fine. Generally well equipped, the cottage was very clean and ideally laid out for our party. Mark, who greeted us on arrival, was very helpful and friendly, and available should we have needed assistance. If I have one recommendation it would be to replace the mattress on the double bed; I would not describe myself as a fussy sleeper, and it was nice to have two pillows each, but the bed was pretty uncomfortable. Otherwise, we were very happy overall.

    This was a idle location to visit the Jurassic coast. Beware no mobile connection or internet, peace and quiet no phones ringing. A pub 400 yards up the lane good food and drink, friendly.

    Lovely cosy cottage with fantastic view. Peaceful location. Good local pub nearby serving good food, but take a torch as up a very dark lane. Good base for local countryside and beaches. Owner very friendly and helpful.
