I booked this last minute. I stayed here while traveling for business, the room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was cooked to order and was delicious. I will definitely stay here again the next time I pass.

We stayed at little court on he night of our wedding in 2011, so decided to go back for our anniversary; the room was spotlessly clean, it was everything you expect to receive when you book, really grand trditional rooms, breakfast was oh high standard and quality locally sourced ingredients, would recommend :)

We stayed at Little Court for 4 nights in September. It's a fabulous place in an ideal location for touring Dorset. We were welcomed with tea on the lawn in the garden of this gorgeous Arts & Crafts property. The room was lovely with fab bedding and ensuite. Breakfast was relaxed, beautifullly served and delicious. We enjoyed walking to the... More

Took a while to find somewhere to stay in Dorset. First time in the area and looking for a quiet comfortable retreat. We found exactly what we were looking for, a charming house with everything we could have asked for.

The warm welcome from Amanda was a great start. We had been for a walk near Abbotsbury and were a bit tired but soon perked up with tea in the summer house overlooking the garden. The family room was comfortable, breakfast excellent and we will go back next time we are down that way.

My husband and I stayed at Little Court when we visited Dorset to attend a wedding. We originally booked as the house was near to the event and looked interesting. We were not prepared for the beautiful setting of the house and garden nor for the quiet calm greeting from Amanda, what a bonus ! We stayed in Room 6... More

Little Court recaptures the halcyon days of Edwardian leisure, the warm red-brick 1909 house of symmetrical proportions, the secluded walled garden with old-fashioned shrubs and climbers, all delightfully modernised to a very high standard of comfort and luxury. Taking my elderly mother away for a few days holiday is usually difficult, but Amanda and her team at Little Court guest... More

Stayed at Little Court in July and it was great. Amanda leaves you alone to do what you want to do.....Play tennis, swim in the pool or just sit around in the lounge but she miraculously appears when you need her and is very helpful. Beautiful garden and countryside, nice breakfast served by pleasant, polite waitress.

I stayed here a few weeks back prior to my wedding and on my actual wedding night in the room with the 4 poster bed. Amanda & Keith were fantastic hosts, too, and the breakfasts here are excellent. Upon returning on my wedding night they had left a bottle of wine chilling on ice which I thought was a lovely... More
