About this location
The Dorset region
Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset's Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.
Nestled in the picturesque Marshwood Vale in the glorious unspoilt countryside of west Dorset is the tiny hamlet of Shave Cross. A mere five miles from the beautiful Dorset Heritage Coast, this lovely settlement is also close to the thriving market town of Bridport â€“ known for its association with the television program â€˜The River Cottage' and its highly coveted amateur writing award. With its Georgian buildings and picturesque 17th Century cottages, the seaside resort of Lyme Regis is only a short drive away and is well worth visiting for its wide range of shops, restaurants, museums and gardens. With so much to see and do surrounding the peaceful hamlet of Shave Cross, this location makes an ideal holiday destination for anyone looking to explore what the pretty Dorset region has to offer.
