A Place to visit

Use Shave Cross Inn as your starting point to explore the beautiful Dorset, Devon and Somerset coast and countryside, the historic coastal towns and the world-renowned cliffs and beaches of the Jurassic coastline.

The lively market town of Bridport is just 4 miles southeast, offering a variety of bustling markets, including weekly artisan and country markets, monthly farmers’ and vintage markets and a seasonal market at West Bay.

The fossil hunter’s paradise of Charmouth Beach lies 4 miles southwest, home to Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre. Take guided walks along the coastline with geologists to explore the foreshore and find your very own piece of Jurassic history. If shopping and quaint harbours are more your style, visit the picturesque coastal town of Lyme Regis, just 6 miles distant. With its busy harbour, RNLI station, sandy beaches and independent shops, there’s lots to offer the tourist.
