Our Location

Nestled in the serene village of West Milton in Dorset, Gore Cottage offers an idyllic location for a peaceful retreat. Surrounded by the natural beauty of a conservation area, our cottage is situated just 5 miles from the coast, opening up endless opportunities for exploration and relaxation.

West Bay Beach

Instantly recognised as the filming location for hit TV series ‘Broadchurch’ (starring David Tennant & Olivia Colman, amongst other big named stars) West Bay offers something for everyone, with a shingled beach to the east and sand to the west, backed by the iconic yellow cliffs of the Jurassic Coast. Plus, it only happens to just be 5 miles away!

This lovely stretch of beach is home to ‘Golden Cap’ – the highest point on the South Coast. But don’t fret if you’re not up for climbing the 191 metre cliff, as the shingle beach itself stretches far and offers plenty of entertainment for all the family. Plus, with nearby public toilets, The Anchor Inn pub and regular food popups, Seatowan has everything covered.

St Catherine's Chapel

Sitting high up on a hill, seemingly overlooking the village of Abbotsbury and with panoramic views for miles across the Dorset Coast, towards the Isle of Portland and Chesil Beach, is St Catherine’s Chapel. This 14th century ruin is still very much complete and still attracts worshipers, or walkers who simply want to appreciate this very special viewpoint.

It’s hard to put this into perspective without visiting, but just imagine the most swans you’ve ever seen, ever! Set in a beautiful lake with gorgeous surroundings, it makes a perfect visit for all ages.
