Escape to Dorset’s Bride Valley and enjoy a slower pace of life while staying at this delightful character cottage, nestled in the sleepy village of Litton Cheney. Explore Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a range of walks and cycle routes surrounding the village, or lace up your walking boots and join the South West Coast Path. You’re close to the coast here and have some of the county’s best beaches within easy reach, make sure you visit Chesil Beach (12 miles), West Bay (8 miles), and Weymouth (16 miles).

This cottage has been converted from two properties to one so it is light and spacious throughout. Step through the front door, bordered by pretty stone flower beds, and into the neutrally-decorated double-aspect lounge – the perfect spot to unwind beside the open fire as you watch TV. The dining room also boasts access to the open fire, so you can enjoy a delicious family dinner while keeping warm and cosy on winter nights. The spacious kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need during your stay, including an oven and hob, microwave and dishwasher. Also on the ground floor, there’s the rear lobby with a shower room. Head up to the first floor to find the cottage’s four bedrooms - three doubles (two of which can be split into twin beds) and one single - plus a bathroom.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Dorset, a location of enduring popularity is a small rural gem of a county encompassing all of the best parts of rural England: rolling green hills, woodland and hedgerows abundant with flora and fauna running down to the sea yet situated just 3 hours from London and the South East.

The whole coastline from Exmouth to Poole has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Known as the Jurassic Coast, it is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status and offers unspoilt views with dramatic cliff-top walks alongside beautiful, safe, sandy beaches which often welcome your four-legged friends too. From the dramatic natural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland; Dorset has it all.

This South West county is also a treasure trove of secrets waiting to be discovered. Having grown out of the landscape out of the centuries, many of Dorset’s small rural towns expose history at every turn to inform and delight guests, whilst for the more energetic, footpaths and cycle-ways open up to reveal Dorset’s hidden secrets and the coast is always close at hand for those who love the water.

Why not head to Lyme Regis – classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much like most of West Dorset to uncover an old-world ambience and excellent fossil hunting or discover the drama of Lulworth with the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

Dorset’s towns and villages ooze quintessential charm and are graced by fine buildings which have often been immortalised in Thomas Hardy’s books, including Dorchester – his birthplace. Wherever you choose to stay, you are never far from the fascinating Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastal Path.
