Little Britain is a smart Portland stone style property in the most perfect location for strolling into the heart of the county town of Dorchester, where you can find a combination of shopping and historical visitor attractions. Perfect for a family of five, this carefully planned property has spacious rooms and has been tastefully finished and furnished ensuring a pleasurable holiday.

Prepare your meals in the modern well equipped kitchen and enjoy it with all family on the dining table.

Plan your day on comfortable leather sofas or admire beautiful artwork on the walls, some of it made by the owner.

The garden is the perfect place if you fancy having a lazy afternoon in a private and securely walled garden. The traditional high street of Dorchester has well-known shops and it’s complemented by lanes peppered with charming boutique shops and independents.

Dorchester boasts more than four museums including one dedicated to dinosaurs and another to teddy bears.

The beautiful borough gardens have tennis courts, play area and band stand.

Other 'must dos' in and around Dorchester include Maiden Castle, an original Roman Townhouse, and a visit to Poundbury.

Around 10 miles away is the coast at Weymouth with a long sandy beach and traditional beach entertainments such as donkey rides and Punch and Judy shows.

About the location


Weymouth 7 miles.

A trip to Dorset is not complete without visiting the market town of Dorchester, with its Roman roads, museums and a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Enjoy a scenic walk around Maiden Castle, the largest hillfort in England, or visit the County Museum which has a room devoted to Thomas Hardy, born just two miles away in Bockhampton. Just seven miles away are the glorious gently shelving beaches and picturesque harbour of Weymouth, and the rugged peninsula of Portland, linked to the mainland by Chesil Beach, part of the breathtaking World Heritage Coastline. In fact, you’ll find yourself so intoxicated by Dorset’s magic spell, you won’t want to return home at the end of your stay!
