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

What a superb B&B which my boyfriend had kindly arranged for my birthday after a trip to the nearby attraction Monkey World. We were greeted by Amanda who provided us with a lovely cool beverage of our choice, the other half chose a bottle of beer, I opted for a glass of white wine and it went down a treat,... More

I booked for my partner and I to spend one night at Little Court for Good Friday. We received a wonderful welcome from the owners who were happy to show us where the tennis racquets were and warn us of the chilly temperature of the pool (not that we were bothered by that)! The gardens an house are beautiful, lovingly... More

Wow, what a fantastic little B and B. Really friendly, clean, comfortable pretty rooms. Stayed here on business but will defiantly return for pleasure with my family for a weekend stay at some point. I could have asked for more.

This is an ideal facility for visiting Dorchester locality. Room was spacious and comfy. Our hosts Amanda and. Keith couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. I recommend this facility, it was priced exactly right.
