The property

Rosamond is a wonderful and well-presented bungalow resting in the pretty village of Shipton Gorge, Dorset.

Surrounded by the glorious Dorset hillside and accommodating up to four guests, this holiday home is perfectly suited for a family or group of friends who are looking for a memorable break in a peaceful setting.

Stepping into the property, you will be welcomed into the stylishly decorated sitting room with plush sofas and cushions where you can gather together and plan your days ahead, before settling down to switch on the TV and catch up on your favourite programmes.

The kitchen/diner is well-equipped with everything you need to cater for your party and meals can be enjoyed at the dining table which overlooks the large lawned garden.

The sun room is a charming addition and a great space to take yourself off and simply relax and unwind after a busy day exploring the local area with that book you have been meaning to read for such a long time.

When the day draws to a close, retire to one of the two bedrooms; one double and one twin room, both decorated with contemporary hues of black and grey with pops of colour throughout to give that fresh and unique style.

In the warmer months, throw open the patio doors and revel in the fresh countryside air and the beauty of the superb scenery in the garden, while you four-legged friend stretches their legs.

The popular and market town of Bridport can be reached in just over two miles away, and here you can discover the delights of its weekly market with stalls selling arts and crafts, local food and unique keepsakes to take back home.

About the location

SHIPTON GORGE

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.
