  • "There is a problem locking the patio door, found it impossible to lock from inside."

    So every night we had to lock it from the out side and go back in through the front door. I think the door itself flexes which means you can push it from the outside but not inside. Apart from that everything fine

  • "Completely exceeded my expectations."

    Everything about it was perfect; the location, the cosy-ness, every room was so well thought out, we were wanting for nothing. I don't normally leave reviews but Honeypot cottage is somewhere you will create wonderful memories with your family. Thank you!

  • "We have just had a lovely mid week break at Honeypot Cottage despite the weather."

    The cottage is tastefully decorated and had everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Parking wasn’t a problem, there was a welcome pack of Tea, Coffee etc which was a very nice thought. The rooms are light airy and beautifully clean, we would love to go again.

  • "Notre séjour à Honeypot Cottage, sous un soleil radieux, s'est très bien passé."

    La maison, située dans un joli petit village, est très agréable. Elle est proche de la côte et bien située pour visiter ce coin du Devon. Il faut emprunter un petit passage depuis la rue pour arriver à la grille (il est indiqué par un panneau). L'arrivée et le départ sont faciles grâce à une boîte à clés sécurisée.

  • "We had a great few days at Honeypot."

    Shipton Gorge is a fantastic location, a real gem, proper Olde Worlde village setting. The property is in excellent condition, everything is very comfortable. The decor is modern and well designed and you are surrounded by interesting features like the fire place and little extras like a quirky coffee maker, a really good sized bath with shower over and lovely views from the back garden. I don't understand the previous comments about parking. There's a perfectly good space allocated, easy to park in, easy to get in and out of the car and easy access for the boot.

  • "Delighted with our stay."

    Very well equipped cottage in a brilliant location. Parking a little tricky but we were half expecting it. We travelled with two small children and it was a truly great trip. We’ll be back!! Lots of extra thought - including books for kiddos and plastic cutlery etc - not to mention welcome biscuits and coffee. Thank you!

  • "We had a lovely 3 night stay over the Coronation weekend."

    We had two cars so parking was a bit of an issue but that was half expected. Honeypot Cottage is a gem of a place and we have all said we would love to stay again and for longer. The kitchen was great with lovely views over the valley and hills in the distance. The beds were comfy and the cottage was clean and tidy. Such a serene and peaceful place and a bonus being close to the New Inn where we had a lovely meal and a laugh with the regulars!

  • "Well located."

    Thank you for fixing the hot water for the bath room which wasnt working when we arrived. One of the beds has an uncomfortably hard mattress by anyone standards. Parking was a hassle as the space in front of the garage wasn't big enough for our car and when we parked on the road, the neighbours asked us to move saying they wanted to park their car outside the house

The property

Burton Bradstock 1.4 miles.

Nestled in the quaint village of Shipton Gorge near the charming Burton Bradstock on Dorset’s coast is Honeypot Cottage.

This idyllic, dog-friendly cottage benefits from a wonderful, terraced garden with garden furniture and spectacular views over the tranquil countryside, as well as three beautifully-presented bedrooms welcoming six guests; perfect for families or friends looking to explore the wonders laced along Dorset’s coast.

Cross the threshold and head straight into the sitting room where you can warm your aching feet, after a day of exploring, by the warmth of the crackling woodburning stove while the Smart TV plays a family favourite.

Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to help the designated chef of the group whip up a tasty meal for the whole group; dine together at the spacious table or if the sun is shining step outside to indulge in an alfresco affair.

After watching the sun disappear behind the rolling countryside, head inside and up the stairs to wash off the day’s adventure in the sleek bathroom before sloping off to sleep in either of the king-size bedrooms, there is also a fun bunk room ideal for children.

If you can tear yourself away from your new home-from-home, treat your loved ones to a delicious meal and a much-needed break from the kitchen at The New Inn while your beloved canine companion lays at your feet.

Alternatively, venture to Burton Bradstock where you can pick up essentials at local stores before spending a full day upon the pebbled shores of Hive Beach, marvel at the impressive views across the channel while the kids splash around in the sea and your dog roams freely.

Follow the coast along to find the famous Chesil Beach which connects Portland to the mainland; the thrill seekers among you can take to the water on stand-up paddle boards, kayaks or surfboards.

Explore Weymouth where you can spend the day at the SEA LIFE, the historic Sandsfoot castle or venture to the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site where you can walk over millions of years of evolutionary history in Lyme Regis at the fossil beach or explore countless museums showcasing fossils.

Make unforgettable memories at Honeypot Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
