Shipton Hill View is nestled on the  edge of the village of Shipton Gorge in the beautiful Bride Valley in Dorset.  Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the village is seeped 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.  Try getting off the beaten track whilst exploring 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 and walks taking in the view of the iconic cliffs featured in the TV show Broadchurch.  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. A visit to Shipton Hill View offers guests a home from home base for exploring the countryside and coast of Dorset. Being all on one level this comfortable bungalow may be suitable for guests looking for easy access as all the rooms are on the ground floor.  Shipton Hill View, a family owned holiday home, has been recently redecorated and updated with new sofas and soft furnishings which complement period wooden furniture pieces along with having a new shower room for 2017. 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 lounge.

Booked Direct With Owner
We stayed at Shipton Hill View during bank holiday week and absolutely loved it. It is cosy and comfortable and has a very welcoming feel. The large garden is a real bonus and has beautiful views over surrounding countryside. It felt like a real home from home and everything you could possibly need was there. I would definitely stay there again. Guests booked directly with owner - stayed August 2017

Delightful cottage, very peaceful and lovely views. Would recommend it anytime.

Mrs B Jacobmeyer
One of the best cottages we have rented - great location and lovely views from the lounge. Cottage was well equipped and blue and white nautical decoration gave a clean and fresh impression. For once an enclosed garden was really enclosed and the dog was very happy exploring outside. Despite the wet weather we enjoyed our week visiting the area and relaxing in our comfortable surroundings. We hope to come back soon. Stayed September 2017

Mr M Watson
Thoroughly enjoyed the location. Stayed May 2017

Mr R Brandon
We stayed for a few days in Easter during April. The cottage is in a lovely quite location with a friendly pub serving decent food only a five minute walk away. the general location is fantastic with Hive Beach a 5 minute drive away. Hive beach itself is very nice with again a fantastic restaurant on the beach serving superb sea food. Very close to Birdport and West Bay and centrally located for everything from Weymouth and Lulworth Cove to Corfe Castle and Lyme Regis all an easy drive away. Cottage was a good size and very clean. Views from the back over some beautiful countryside. Would certainly recommend and would stay again. Stayed April 2017

Ms M Holmes
Lovely bungalow and nice size garden.good location for beach and general shopping - stayed August 2016

About the Location

If you were to imagine a traditional English little village sat amongst undulating lush green countryside then Shipton Gorge is just that. Perfectly positioned in an area of outstanding beauty, in the heart of the Bride Valley, this charming village has won many community awards including ‘Best small village in Dorset’. The village is made up of an orchard, a village pub and stone cottages, with an ample selection of walks and unrivalled views across Dorset.

Shipton Hill is a green viewing point. It is a steep healthy walk, but when you get to the top you are rewarded with the most stunning views southwards towards the sea and to the north, the never ending green of the West Dorset hills, separated by the typically English hedgerows and the splendid Golden Cap.
