  • "A lovely cosy cottage, with everything we needed."

    The terraced back garden was an added bonus, perfect for late afternoon tea and cake (or glass of rosé) in the sun. Nice walk from the cottage to Hive Beach (which has a great cafe/restaurant), or a quick 10 min drive, for a morning stroll followed by breakfast at the cafe (NB: the car park is free to NT Members). The local pub is a 5 minute walk away. It is very traditional, with warm welcoming staff and great food.

  • "Really lovely cottage, situated in a beautiful location."

    Very tastefully decorated - stylish yet cosy. Pretty garden with wonderful views of the countryside when you got to the top of it. Really appreciated the goodies left for us by the owners so we could have that all important first cup of tea after our long journey! Lots to do in the area - great beaches, RSPB (Arne), cider tasting and castles (Lulworth). We couldn't do it all as we spent quite alot of time relaxing at the cottage! Highly recommend.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are pleased you love the cottage as much as we do. Property Owner

  • "Super. Owner was most helpful when I spoke to her."

    Cottage was perfect and so was the location. Children wrote in the visitors book and their comments were very positive.

    So pleased you enjoyed your time at Rose Cottage. Lovely comments from the children. Property Owner

  • "What a beautiful cottage, amazingly well appointed… the listing does not do it justice!"

    Fabulous kitchen includes a washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer, microwave, huge cooker, coffee machine as well as lovely crockery. Lounge has lovely modern sofas, a gas fire and a Smart TV. Beds are comfortable and bedding was cosy. Main Bathroom had a rainfall type shower over the bath as well as a removable one. My only (tiny) thing that I’d say was missing was a shaver socket. Thank you. (Also updating your details would be helpful as the key safe code we were sent was incorrect as it had been changed).

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Rose Cottage. Property Owner

The property

Resting in the quaint village of Shipton Gorge, within the Dorset AONB, is 1 Rose Cottage, a charming, stone-fronted dwelling.

Located within driving distance to the shoreline, 1 Rose Cottage is well-positioned to explore both the coast and country, whilst complete with an open-plan living layout, flexible sleeping arrangements, and pet-friendly accommodation.

Park up to the roadside before travelling indoors to reach the welcoming living/dining room, complete with plush seating, a dining table for six, and a Smart TV; here you can unwind after a day of travelling, socialise, and plan your coming days.

Travel into the kitchen to fulfil your self-catering needs, with the helping hand of a washing machine and dishwasher to ease your stay; once meals are prepared, choose to dine indoors or outdoors upon the terraced garden.

When sleep calls, select between three well-appointed bedrooms, including a king-size, a double and a twin.

All are serviced by a sleek bathroom, with a bath and shower over to suit all preferences.

If you can tear yourself away from your delightful abode, head to The New Inn pub for a bite to eat, or for further amenities, travel to the coastline to Burton Bradstock, home to a convenience store and The Three Horseshoes pub.

Enjoy your time at the seaside upon Cogden Beach, practise your swing at Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club, take in the stunning, golden terrain of West Bay Beach Dorset, or follow the Jurassic Coast walking trail to truly appreciate this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Reach the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, hosting a calendar of fossil events, or to find your own head to Lyme Regis Fossil Beach, enveloped by further attractions, including the Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, Lyme Regis Museum, and the Dinosaurland Fossil Museum, offering something for all types of visitors.

Experience all of this, and more, at 1 Rose Cottage.

About the location


  • Bridport 2.8 miles
  • Seatown 7.2 miles
  • Lyme Regis 13.3 miles

The village of Shipton Gorge has its first reference in the Domesday Book of 1086. There is no "gorge" but it is an interesting and pretty village with high banked lanes, lovely houses and a community spirit. There are a number of thatched properties as well as listed buildings, one site of special scientific interest, two small woods and a network of public footpaths and bridleways to be explored. It has an early 15th century church tower, a 13th century font and the exterior is floodlit for much of the year making it an important feature of the village both day and night.
