Just back from our first visit to Little Court. What a find! What a gem! The house is comfortable - elegant but cosy - and Amanda was lovely to deal with. We had the four-poster room (8) which was worth every penny. Spacious, warm, comfortable, light, and with nothing lacking. A freshly-made pot of tea with biscuits was made for... More

Stayed last week with a friend for 3 nights. We couldn't fault this B&B; beautiful house, full of character and sympathetic furnishings. A very comfortable sitting area where we were served tea on arrival. Our twin-bedded room was perfect with views of the garden and hair-dryer, iron and ironing board, as well as a portable electric fire in case we... More

Our room was at the back and had a beautiful view over the walled gardens. It was compact and incredibly comfortable, with a really comfy bed. It was light and airy and had a perfect... More

Little Court is a lovely old manor house in a quiet spot but only a mile from the delightful town of Dorchester. The room was large and well equipped and had very comfortable beds. The large walled gardens with pool and tennis court was a haven of tranquility. The breakfast was one of the best I have had in my... More

A beautiful house with extensive gardens, tennis court and heated outdoor swimming pool in a great location only 1 mile from Dorchester. We were greeted on arrival by Amanda and offered afternoon tea in the garden. Excellent breakfasts, friendly staff and plenty of parking, and only a five minute walk to The Sun Inn which serves excellent evening meals.

This bed and breakfast was great. The location was quiet but accessible. The room was large and luxurious, with interesting mixture of contemporary and antique that suited the location and building. Breakfast was great and they catered for my dairy free diet. Fantastic pub nearby with excellent food in easy strolling distance.

They were from Belgium and Spain and wanted to experience a quintessential english house with grounds etc and were absolutely delighted with the whole experience provided by Amanda. I know many of the other wedding guests staying in a... More
