  • Mrs Steggles

    “Comfy, cosy bungalow.”

    Beds v comfy. Sofas v comfy. Shower room and loo, all new and fab. Lovely enclosed garden. Plenty of parking. Fabulous food at the village pub, the New Inn. Short drive to beautiful beach and 5 mins to Morrisons and Bridport. Locals really friendly. Only slight quibble is the kitchen is a bit dated and a new frying pan would go amiss, but all good apart from that

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.

Note: There is a step up to the front door and down from the lounge patio doors to the garden.
Note: Max 6 people
