Litton Cheney is a particularly attractive conservation village hidden deep in the Bride Valley between Dorchester and Bridport, with its harbour West Bay the location for ITV's hugely popular crime drama, Broadchurch. It is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The nearest bathing beach is just 3 miles away at Burton Bradstock on the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site. There is a pub in the village with excellent food. There is also a delightful secluded children's playground just a minute's walk away from the cottage.
The area is criss crossed with footpaths and bridleways for those wanting to explore the wonderful West Dorset countryside by foot, bike or horse.
