Located in the picturesque Shipton Gorge village, this delightful cottage is the perfect home-from-home for families and groups of friends to enjoy an unforgettable holiday.
In a peaceful valley with countryside views, this semi-detached stone cottage sleeps up to six in the village of Shipton Gorge. Surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the cottage is less than 2.5 miles from the beach and 3 miles from Bridport, making it the perfect base for exploring this lovely part of the country.
Inside, the accommodation blends charming features like beamed ceilings and a wood burner with light and neutral decor, illuminated by large windows. The open-plan sitting/dining room has room for everyone; snuggle up in front of the fire or sit around the dining table to enjoy a meal all together overlooking the terrace. The kitchen has everything you need from a home-from-home, while there’s also a handy downstairs cloakroom and a book-lined hallway providing inspiration for your holiday reading list. Climb the stairs to discover three bedrooms: a king-size bedroom, a double bedroom and a twin room with a rollaway bed. All share the family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Outside, there’s plenty of opportunities to make the most of the fresh country air; choose from the grassy terrace, the bird-filled copse or the large gravelled courtyard with a BBQ. There is also parking at the property for two cars.
Bridport, is 3 miles from the property, is a must-visit for shopaholics, with its popular markets and arts sector. Kids will love Abbotsbury Swannery (9 miles), home to 600 Mute swans and a maze made of willow in the shape of a swan, and Abbotsbury Children’s Farm (8 miles) where you can groom the ponies, pet the donkeys and bottle-feed baby goats. Less than 2.5 miles away is the secluded and sandy Hive Beach, where you can swim, sunbathe and sandcastle-build to your heart’s content.
