Latest reviews | Events in Eype | 10 Places to Stay

Eype has been described as 'one of West Dorset's most beautiful villages', a bold claim in a county that is full of very beautiful villages! However, when you walk around viewing its pretty thatched cottages and delightful country gardens, you can soon understand why such a statement was made. Eype means "steep place" and its buildings can be traced back to the late eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries. Situated westwards along the coast from Bridport, Eype also boasts a stunningly attractive beach at Eype's Mouth Beach. This beautiful sand and gravel beach is backed by magnificent cliffs the most notable of which is the Golden Cap, the highest cliff on the south coast at 191m above sea level. Visitors can enjoy a meal at the New Inn at Eype, described as 'an excellent local'. Also on offer for lighter refreshment are the Eype Tea Gardens. There are many excellent camping facilities on offer in Eype, including the Eype House Caravan Park. For those who prefer a more solid roof over their heads, there is the Eype's Mouth Country Hotel. Set in a stunning location it provides the opportunity to walk along the Coastal Path and is ideal for the keen rambler, ornithologist, anthropologist or geologist.
