Rainbow Cottage - Litton Cheney, Dorset, England - Sleeps 8

Rainbow Cottage

Rainbow Cottage sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms and is a charming stone, thatched holiday cottage that was built in 1994. Designed by an award winning builder, the cottage has been cleverly styled to offer all the charm of a traditional old cottage, whilst benefiting from modern conveniences and accommodation that offers plenty of space for a family holiday.

The cottage is located in the pretty conservation village of Litton Cheney, which is tucked away deep amongst the Bride Valley between Dorchester and Bridport. The Bride valley is a remarkably beautiful area which is well known for its coastline, lovely walks and archaeology.

Situated in an AONB, Little Cheney is just three miles away from the bathing beach at Burton Bradstock which sits on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site. The village has a pub which serves food and there is also a children's playground within a minute's stroll of the cottage.

Close to the seaside resorts of Weymouth, Lyme Regis and West Bay, this is an ideal place from which to explore the Dorset coastline, along with the beautiful countryside. Market towns of Dorchester, Yeovil, Bridport and Sherborne are all easily accessible and the area offers plenty of very good pubs, restaurants, historic houses and gardens, along with local food producers and farmer markets.
