About the property

Secreted quietly away in the beautiful Dorset village of Shipton Gorge.

Lilliput is a charming detached holiday cottage sleeping up to guests in a comfortable hideaway from busy city life. Only two miles from the wonderful Jurassic coastline and enclosed by breath-taking countryside, this cottage is the perfect location from which to explore Dorset on foot, by car or on the bus.

For those seeking an ideal country walking base or explorers of our rugged historic coastline to those who seek the peace and tranquillity of countryside and a slower pace of life – it’s a hidden gem.

Sit back and unwind in the sunny garden and terrace, stocked with beautiful plants and bird feeders.

Whether a birder or twitcher you'll be sure to enjoy the birds dance on the feeders.

If you look in the guest book you will see previous guests describing the bird visitors they have seen, and challenging following guests to do the same.

The picturesque village of Burton Bradstock, Hive Beach, West Bay with lovely harbour and market town of Bridport are all close and after you have unpacked and ready to explore are well worth visiting.

Lilliput welcomes two well-behaved dogs although the owners do ask not to leave them unattended.

The numerous eating places such as The New Inn, The Anchor and Hive Beach Cafe are all dog friendly. Venture to the west and you will find the tallest cliff in South coast - Golden Cap.

Charminster and Lyme Regis famous for their fossils are close by too.

Those looking for more adventure can have a little longer drive to Abbotsbury, the Isle of Portland, Weymouth, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door to the East.

With everything so easily accessible this makes Lilliput the perfect retreat at any time of the year for a family or a group of friends.
