The Little House has the perfect name, it is a super quaint small cottage, set along a quiet pedestrian lane and yet just a few moments' walk from both the town centre of Dorchester and country walks along the River Frome. This cottage has been completely renovated to provide a modern, yet character filled cottage and is a perfect couple's retreat. Boasting a rare private courtyard garden, cosy living room and bespoke kitchen, this bright and imaginative cottage is the perfect holiday oasis. Dorchester as the county town of Dorset has lots to offer from exceptional restaurants and boutique shops, to high street amenities and many visitor attractions including Hardy's Cottage, the Military Museum, Roman Townhouse, Maiden Castle Roman Fort and Poundbury. The Georgian fronted seaside town of Weymouth is just a short 10-minute drive away, and the rest of the Jurassic Coastline is easy to access and explore from a base in Dorchester.

Accommodation: Entrance from front door onto a small landing with two steps down to Lounge/Kitchen/Diner. Narrow steep cottage stairs to first floor: Mezzanine bedroom with double bed accessed from one side only, please see photos and VT. Shower room with shower, hand basin and toilet.

Additional services: WiFi. Electric underfloor heating. The enclosed walled garden is accessed directly opposite the front door of the house. There is an allocated parking place approximately five minutes' walk from the property.  One small pet is welcome. Linen and towels are inclusive. Not suitable for children.

Note: The Little House has a unique location along a twisting pedestrian lane hidden behind one of the main streets in Dorchester. The path is in parts original and traditional brick / cobbled and slightly uneven (see photos) and as such may not be suitable for guests with walking difficulties. For further information please see Access Statement.

About the Location

Dorchester offers rolling green countryside, alongside all the pleasures of a vibrant market town, with beautiful architecture, an abundance of Roman history and some of the finest restaurants in Dorset. Shopping in Dorchester is a much loved pastime too, with many high street names alongside lovely boutique stores and regular traditional markets.

You can feel the spirit of Thomas Hardy everywhere in Dorchester; this is where he was born in 1840 in the delightful cob and thatch cottage built by his grandfather just a 12 minute drive from the town. This cottage is where Thomas Hardy sat and wrote ‘Under the Greenwood Tree’ and ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’. Visitors can visit Hardy’s Cottage, which is now owned by The National Trust and has barely been altered since his family left.
