Gore Cottage has been inspected by VisitEngland.

West Milton is a conservation area in an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" and Gore Cottage is listed as being a "Building of Special Architectural Interest Grade II". The countryside is ideal for bird watching and walking. Standing on its own in its own secluded garden on the edge of West Milton, the cottage is stone built with a thatched roof and porch. It sleeps five, plus a cot: upstairs there are two double rooms one with a double bed, the other with two singles, and a single room downstairs, which is the room with the telephone; the compact bathroom (with full sized bath and basin) and separate WC and wash basin are also downstairs. The kitchen is large enough to eat in and there is a separate sitting room with a multi-fuel stove. There is another WC in the thatched garden shed.

There is a garage at the end of the lane and parking for a second car on the concrete apron. There is then a walk of about 100 yards along the footpath, across the foot bridge over the stream, to get to the cottage.

The cottage is fully equipped and all the appliances are electric: cooker, microwave, fridge, automatic washing machine and telephone. The electricity, light, heating, hot water, sheets, pillows, pillow cases, towels, blankets and eiderdowns are all included in the cottage rental. There is a selection of books, maps and guide books in the cottage.

The Dorset and East Devon coast, the Jurassic Coast, has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO; West Milton is five miles from the coast at West Bay, Bridport's harbour. Other beaches are at Burton Bradstock and Seatown, with Weymouth and Lyme Regis being further away. Riding, fishing and golf are available in the area. Places to visit include the gardens of Mapperton and Minterne, the Swannery at Abbotsbury, and houses such as Forde Abbey and Athelhampton.

The housekeeper lives nearby.
