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.

Surrounded by walking opportunities and places to get out and about amongst Dorset’s diverse scenery, this retreat is perfect for both hardcore adventurers and leisurely strollers alike. Take your pick of country routes nearby, or head 8 miles away to explore Golden Cap and the gorgeous coast paths. Only 2 miles away, make sure you pop over to Hive Beach for seascapes and good food. Closer to home, the village is served by two eateries, so you can enjoy a meal out in good company.

Come into the porch and leave your coats and shoes. Before heading into the main hub of the home, you can browse the porch’s bookcases and choose some reading material for evenings curled up on the sofa. There’s also a handy downstairs WC. From the entrance hall, you can access the lounge/diner. Both spacious and cosy, the room has been finished with thoughtful details and has plenty of seating including a dining table with chairs for all the family. Whether you’re enjoying a relaxed morning or luxurious evening in, warm your toes in front of the wood burner and switch on the TV for some added entertainment. With light flooding in from the windows and French patio doors, it is a great space to kick back throughout the day. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen. Furnished with an oven and electric hob, a fridge, a microwave, a kettle, a toaster and lots of pots and utensils, you can find everything you need for meal preparations. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine provided for extra convenience. Switch on the radio or open the door to the garden and listen to the melody of birdsong outside. Upstairs, there is an attractive family bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, and three bedrooms. These include two doubles (one with a king-size bed) and a twin, with slightly reduced head height in places.

Outside, there is a gravel courtyard to the rear of the cottage with a BBQ and a wooden doghouse, as well as the garage. From here, gated steps lead up to pretty grass terraces, too. For somewhere to leave your wheels, there is dedicated parking for two cars.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

It was a lovely cottage in a fantastic location. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay with our 3 children and dog. The housekeeper, Nancy, was fantastic and even put up a Christmas tree for our stay.

It is a lovely welcoming cottage the only thing that lets it down is the shower, it seems difficult to achieve an comfortable temperature and the flow is rather weak. This would not however deter our family from visiting again.

The cottage was everything that it said it was on the website. All amenities were there for our use. Lovely quiet village. Not too far from both shops and beach

Reviewed by Mrs K Moseley 31st August 2018

Spacious living room/dining room, good size kitchen. Main bedroom really big and the other 2 rooms smaller but fine. Garage very useful for keeping wellies and dog towels away from the house and very handy to have a chest freezer and an extra fridge out there too. Heating fine and lovely and cosy with the log burner. Great to have parking for 2 caRead morers. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
