Set in the idyllic Dorset village of Litton Cheney, this delightful stone-built character cottage makes an ideal holiday home for a family or group of friends looking for a peaceful rural hideaway just 4 miles from the coast. Midway between Lyme Regis (17 miles) and Weymouth (15 miles), the property makes a lovely base for exploring the quaint villages and spectacular countryside of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is also an ideal spot for exploring the miles of stunning beaches along the Jurassic Coast.

Three steps lead you up to the cottage where you will find a spacious lounge with plenty of seating, a TV and a warming wood burner, making this an ideal space to relax in at the end of a lovely day. There’s also a wood burner in the bright and welcoming dining room which is a wonderful space for sharing a family meal which you can prepare in the bright and fully equipped kitchen. Going upstairs, you will find four cosy bedrooms: three doubles (two of which can be made up as twin rooms) and a single. There’s also a bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the ground floor. Heading outside, you can unwind on the south-facing terrace which has garden furniture and leads down to a pretty lawn with shrub borders. Ample parking is available for two cars.

Located in the heart of the Dorset countryside, Litton Cheney is also within easy reach of the coast, with West Bay (7 miles), Hive Beach (5 miles) and Chesil Beach (12 miles) all nearby. The thriving coastal towns of Bridport (6.5 miles) and Weymouth feature a range of great shops, restaurants and pubs. The picturesque village of Abbotsbury (7 miles) is home to a ruined abbey, a swannery and the beautiful subtropical gardens

Location

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.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
