    Manor Court Cottages are set in the picturesque village of Shipton Gorge. Within walking distance, 110 yards, are the village playing fields and pub selling the famous Palmers Ales and local food. This a fantastic location to explore the Dorset countryside and World Heritage Jurassic coastline, 1½ miles away. Whether its a family holiday, walking, bird watching, fishing, cycling or for a quiet break Manor Court Cottages are ideal. The pretty village of Burton Bradstock, 1½ miles, has a beach with a café, shop, post office, garage and pubs. The market town of Bridport, 2 miles away, has a lively and vibrant street market Saturdays and Wednesday, along with small shops, cafés, antiques and local food can be found, or pop into the museum and learn its history of rope and net making.
    The picturesque harbour of West Bay is 2 miles away and was made famous by the TV drama ’Broadchurch’, while the village of Abbotsbury, 3 miles away, is popular for its swannery, sub-tropical gardens and childrens farm. Spread along the coast from Sidmouth is a host of attractions, including the Donkey Sanctuary and Beer Caves at Seaton and Axminster where you can ride on the trams or eat at the River Cottage restaurant. Into Dorset try fishing in a boat out of the cobb at Lymm Regis, fossil hunting at the museum or a walk up Golden Cap for the breathtaking views. Weymouth with its sandy beaches and Sealife Centre is well worth a visit, discover the dinosaurs at the Dorchester museum or travel back in time with a visit to Thomas Hardy’s cottage, go to war at the Bevington Tank Museum, or say ’hi’ to the monkeys at Monkey World. Enjoy a dip at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door for a sightseeing walk, explore Crofe Castle, and then all aboard the steam train at Swanage. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

    "Had a great holiday, loved the cottage, a short walk to a fab local pub only a couple of miles from a great dog friendly beach and cafe. Great quiet location but only a few miles to a town for everything you could need."

    "Our second visit to Woodpecker this year and was as enjoyable as in March except this time was minus our dog Scoob who we sadly lost in June aged 16. We met Mark this time who was very helpful and friendly. Will definately be back."
    Keith ‐ 18 Aug 2019

    Paul ‐ 12 Aug 2019
    "We had a lovely week here and would recommend the cottage. Very comfortable with a lot of little extras. A nice place to go"
    Donna ‐ 15 Jul 2019
    "Lovely cottage, clean, well equipped. Little extras left. Great location to get around to different areas. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My son loved being next door to the sheep field. Would definitely return if in the area. Even our dogs settled well. Thank you x"
    Judy ‐ 30 Jun 2019
    "Very good cottage as always. New furniture, especially the beds, great improvement. Unfortunately weather was dreadful - rained nearly every day and with 2 dogs to take out life was difficult. Mark, the caretaker, was very helpful and supplied all the things that I had no room to bring. Hopefully will come again but a long way from North Norfolk but we love Dorset."
    Carolyn ‐ 9 May 2019
    "For our short break Woodpecker was perfect. Good location for many places to visit without having to travel far. Local pub Three Horseshoes in Burton Bradstock and the Bridport Golf Club served excellent food. Walks with our elderly dog at Hive Beach plus a stop for coffee were perfect."
    julia ‐ 22 Jan 2019
    "Lovely cottage. Thoughtful extras (dog treats and poo bags. Plus welcome pack). Good location as close to Hive beach and others) . Good views. Going back soon"
    Lynn ‐ 21 Jan 2019
