Just back from a week in the Shippen with my husband and 2 year old daughter, Ava. The Shippen was ideal - all on one level so no stairgates to worry about and travel cot would fit in either bedroom so perfect for those on holiday with a little one. Burton Bradstock itself is a lovely village situated between Weymouth and Lyme Regis so it is easy to visit both. Nearby Abbotsbury is also very pleasant. On Karen's advice we visited the Children's Farm (where Ava enjoyed her first pony ride), the Swannery and the Gardens. Ideal for families and couples alike (unfortunately with a 2 year old we were unable to take full advantage of the local pub) I would definitely recommend it!
