Shore Cottage is a unique detached house bordering the seashore with three double bedrooms, each with truly magnificent views over the sea and rolling countryside. The cottage is the last house on an unmade track in Ringstead Bay, Dorset; the large grassy garden runs directly over the cliff to the natural shingle beach. The house is as unique as the setting and has wonderful panoramic views in all directions. It is surrounded on three sides by National Trust land in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and on the fourth side by the beach looking out across Weymouth Bay towards the Isle of Portland. The beach is beautifully unspoilt and is always safe for swimming.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Excellent location amazing surroundings and the beach a few yards away.
Everything about the holiday was brilliant. Location, weather and facilities. A most enjoyable relaxing stay with excellent views from every part of the property. The beach was surprisingly close, we all managed the short walk from the garden to the natural beach, where we spent most of the time reading and swimming in the clear sea and most of the time we had the beach to ourselves. We can't wait to return next year......

Peaceful, comfortable coastal cottage
We have stayed in holiday lets all over the British isles and Shore cottage is up their with the best of them. The cottage is in a fantastic location with great views from every window and was nicely laid out for a very comfortable stay. This part of Dorset is very picturesque and Shore cottage was ideal base to make the most of it. We shall return.

Beautiful house and superb location
We had the most amazing week staying in Shore Cottage. It has everything you need and more. Waking up to the beautiful views every morning was blissful. The garden is perfect and you benefit from your own private path which leads to the pebble beach. We will be returning next year and we can't wait! Thank you Simon for sharing your house with us.

Peaceful, picturesque, perfect!
Having stayed in many house rentals over quite a few years I now know exactly what I'm looking for and quite frankly this was it! Shore Cottage has a really great location. The beach is on your doorstep and when we visited at Easter we had it entirely to ourselves which the dog absolutely loved (having sneaked off a couple of times to play!). From here you can easily travel into Weymouth or drive out to some of the local beauty spots. The main bedroom has a balcony which is great for sitting out on to enjoy a cup of tea first thing in the morning and there's a small café/shop nearby if you run out of milk. Simon - if you're ever thinking about selling up, let me know!
