The property

Shipton Hill View is nestled on the edge of the village of Shipton Gorge in the beautiful Bride Valley in Dorset.

This comfortable bungalow may be suitable for guests looking for easy access as all the rooms are on the ground floor.

You will find two bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, along with a sitting room with dining area.

One of the joys of staying at Shipton Hill View is the long and level rear garden with wonderful views of the rolling and verdant Dorset hills.

In the summer it's the ideal location to dine alfresco or have a game of cricket.

In the winter enjoy the view through the patio doors while warm and cosy in the sitting room. Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the village is steeped in history, with little lanes and quaint cottages and a church dating back 13th Century.

Exploring the village of Shipton Gorge, The New Inn is managed and run by the local community and provides home cooked pub favourites and local bitters.

Shipton Gorge is surrounded by countryside with a network of public footways and bridleways.

Explore the countryside surrounding the beautiful Bride Valley by taking a walk from Shipton Gorge to Shipton Hill which is around 4 miles.

Just a few miles away is the nearest coast and beach at Burton Bradstock, which is a world heritage site and part of the Jurassic Coast.

A few miles further on is West Bay, which has a pretty harbour with kiosks and restaurants, two beaches.

Around two miles away, the market town of Bridport is worth a trip as it has a good variety of shopping and the twice weekly market features antiques and collectables.

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.

Note: There is a step up to the front door and down from the lounge patio doors to the garden.
