  • "A fantastic place to stay."

    High spec accommodation in a beautiful setting with wonderful views. No expenses spared on comfort especially the bed mattresses and a super clean interior. Carefully attended dog proof garden and the owners are lovely people. I have also left a review on Trustpilot as we were so impressed with Rosamond. Thoroughly recommendable if you love peace, quiet, complete privacy and tranquility in a holiday setting, but only 200 yds from a smashing country pub with outstanding food and 2 miles from one of the best beaches in Dorset ( Hive ). I cannot praise this beautiful bungalow enough.

  • "The pictures really don't do this holiday home justice."

    We were expecting a bungalow on an estate and actually got a secluded property with amazing views on a no through country lane. Everything we needed and more was available to us and the owner was incredibly kind and helpful. The local walks are sensational.The local pub welcoming. The property itself was immaculate. The village of Shipton Gorge and the neighbouring Burton Bradstock are beautiful and we won't hesitate to return.

  • "The cottage is brilliant."

    Its location is perfect for those who like visit beaches or enjoy the coast path. In particular if you'd like to have a run, you can easily get to the coast and run on the coast path, which was what I did. While the cottage is in a village, it is very quiet and you can enjoy the beautiful country view from the dinning table. The cottage is well equipted, and you can find anything you'd need. It's also very clean. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will come back in the future.

About the location


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.
