"You might want to check this link. Maybe you can email them and ask them if they know of any shops."
Cat Chase :

Don't seem to be many that score well on tripadvisor. Anywhere between Sidmouth/Honiton/Axminster/Lyme ok. Looking for somewhere under £80 per night.

Miss Scarlett :
"Your best bet would be to contact the tourist office and they will give you information on where you want to go and they will also tell you what prices will be charged."
ronky donk :

The Happy Murcia :
"Lyme Regis for me,,,,"
Matt P :
"lyme regis someone got stabbed in bridport last year"
Tim W :
"Lyme is much nicer. I live along the cost in Weymouth, bridport is more central but Lyme has the cobb and is much more seasidey however both have limitations. Weymouth much better for a family holiday and then visit them both."
k :

Anna B :
"I love Bridport! Been there on holiday 3 times and it was lovely!"
Marion L :
"Both Pretty places But Weymouth is best for a nice holiday"
miss ziggy :
"they are so close that it doesnt really matter. both towns are lovely. you can visit either one . bridport has a good market on tuesday and saturday. lyme regis is delightful. everywhere is good in dorset. i hope you enjoy your visit which ever town you choose"
David S :
"Bridport is nice for a visit particularly on Saturdays when there is a market, but Lyme Regis is the best play to stay. The coastal scenery - the 'Jurassic' coast is the strength of the area; do walk along the South West Coast path to Seaton; its an astronishingly beautiful walk though you won't want to linger too long in Seaton."
steffi :
"Can't remember ever going to Bridport, but can recommend Lyme Regis."
