W
elcome to Eype - one of West Dorset's most beautiful villages. Situated on the magnificent World Heritage Coastline and close to the historic market town of Bridport.  Eype consists of both Higher Eype and Lower Eype.  Lower Eype has access to the beach for fishing, swimming (with care) and fossil hunting.

Eype means "steep place" and many of its buildings can be traced back to the late eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries, but little is known in detail until the Victorian era. 

Eype beach to the west has the magnificent Golden Cap - the highest cliff on the south coast at 191m above sea level.


We hope you like our website which has been designed for the Eype community, locals in general and visitors plus of course potential visitors, as well as 'general interest'. We intend to make this website much larger to take in some of the surrounding areas - partly due to feedback from many visitors.
