About Litton Cottage

Litton Cottage is the perfect setting for a family gathering welcoming to both the younger and older members of your group and it's pet-friendly too. In this 'get away from it all' location you will be able to unwind and relax with all the comforts of home; take in the stunning countryside and explore the famous local attractions and come home to this beautiful cottage at the end of a fun-packed day.

Placed in the centre of the historic Litton Cheney, Dorset, the village is packed with historical buildings ready for you to explore. The cottage commands views out over the meadows leading straight to the coast which can be accessed by footpaths from the cottage - perfect for summer picnics or bracing winter walks with pets. Walking in to the cottage you'll be welcomed by the warmth from the striking red Aga which gives the country kitchen a fantastically rural feel.

Downstairs your party will have ample room to spread out either in front of the open fire in the spacious and very comfortable lounge, the dining room with a piano for your more musically gifted guests, or on the secluded south facing patio looking out to the idyllic Dorset countryside making it the perfect location for alfresco dining.

Upstairs four spacious bedrooms give your party the flexibility of doubles and twins making this property very suitable for an extended family or two smaller families coming together for a celebration. With so much to do close by you can pack a lot in to a short break and never get bored with a longer stay - with the beach, country walks, historical sites and plenty of tourist attractions within close proximity, this Dorchester holiday cottage certainly has a lot to offer!

"We just returned from spending Christmas at Litton Cottage. It was as fabulous as the week we were there before in May. The Cottage is very comfortable in furnishings and beds. The country kitchen is spacious to eat in although our Christmas meals were in the dining room. Each and every window has the most delightful view. From the chickens next door to the lit church a short walk away. We organised a Tesco delivery so no need for shopping. Sky TV and efficient WiFi is a luxury we havn't had in other holiday rentals. Locally Hive Beach Cafe and the walks around it are a must. The waterfall near the church at Long Bredy is like a little peace of heaven. The booking and arrival procedure is so warmly and efficiently dealt with by Caroline the owner, I cant recommend highly enough."
