Why Jonathan Dixon chose Shipton Gorge
Shipton Gorge is a quiet, leafy Dorset village with a history going back to the Domesday Book in 1086. Built around the 13th century St Martin's Church, Shipton Gorge is well connected with a network of footpaths and bridleways to the coast at Hive Beach, stunning countryside, the South West Coastal Path, nearby ancient monuments and breathtaking hill-top views. You'll find a friendly welcome from villagers and the nearby New Inn, the village's own pub that serves great meals and Palmer's ales. We're about 10 minutes drive from Bridport which is a pretty, trendy but bustling market town. Bridport offers a superb range of independent and quirky shops, an amazing street market, a fantastic range of eating places and there is lots to see and do.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage, which dates back to the 1790's and situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has been converted to be easy, clean and airy but also to retain its quirky character and charm. Gulliver's Cottage is not just another holiday rental - it's our home from home, where we come to relax with friends and family and we hope that you'll feel the same way. We are within easy reach of a wealth of stunning Jurassic Coast beaches at Burton Bradstock, Lulworth and Durdle Dor, the Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis. Visit West Bay, used in the recent TV drama, Broadchurch. Local attractions include Maiden Castle, Hardy's Cottage in Dorchester, the Swannery at Abbotsbury and several historic homes and gardens.
