Lovely thatched cottage with good high ceilings downstairs at least. Perfect for 2 looking for a quiet walking break, with a choice of 3 pubs and a tea shop within a couple of hundred yards.
Sophie lives 2 doors away and was very helpful before and during our stay.
Just what we wanted.
Fabulous cottage in a fabulous village.. Perfect for 2 on a relaxing walking break.
This is a first class holiday cottage, in a fantastic location.. Do not miss the experience, there’s plenty to see and do all within easy driving distance. Local hostelries were friendly and good food was on the menu. Little Thatch an experience not to be missed.

Excellent cottage, clean, well appointed in a lovely location..
The cottage is in a lovely location.. It has excellent facilities and so well equipped. It was such a pleasant stay and we hope to get back again soon
Little Thatch was a perfect cottage.. There were many extra touches like coffee, tea , bubble bath and dishwasher and laundry products available. Cerne Abbas has a very good village shop and three pubs, what more could you want! The cottage was super clean and does not allow pets so there were no nasty smells, stains or pet hair on the furniture or bedding that we have experienced in other cottages.

The cottage is very comfortable with all mod cons..two bathrooms and cooking very easy on the oven. Lovely touch from Sophie with flowers on dining table,milk in fridge tea bags and biscuits.

The cottage is brilliant.. .everything you need is in the lovely house. The village is really nice and peaceful..people very friendly. Two good pubs with good selection of food. Would recommend this house good location for exploring the area.
We loved this little cottage, and the village of Cerne Abbas.. A central spot for exploring Dorset, and all the local offerings.
The cottage was very well fitted out, and a real bonus was having both a bathroom and a shower room.
Would recommend Little Thatch to everyone, and the bonus of an excellent village shop can't be underestimated!
Comfortable, quiet, charming cottage. All mod cons, wonderfully comfortable bed in the master and efficient heating. Sophie the owner had left staples such as milk, tea and coffee etc. with treats such as posh bisciuts! A nice touch were the orchid plants in the lounge and upstairs bathroom. Cerne Abbas is a beautiful village with pubs, a well stocked shop and a great tearoom, the village is also an excellent base for touring beautiful Dorset. Would return in a heartbeat!
The cottage was perfect.. Everything one could want was to hand . Little touches , milk,tea,coffee,hot chocolate, biscuits all available on arrival. Our grandson loved it.
We really enjoyed our week in Little Thatch in Cerne Abbas, Dorset in August.. The cottage facilities exceeded all our expectations. It was beautifully restored and all facilities were of a very high standard - from bedding & comfortable beds to thick towels, and quality kitchen equipment. The hosts were welcoming and there was the added bonus of having the village round the corner with friendly shopkeepers and welcoming pubs (in two of which we sampled delicious food). We would not hesitate to stay in this cottage again.
Lovely cottage but very expensive..
Fantastic cottage we would stay there again Sophie was most helpful.. I was recovering from eye operations so the rest & peace in the pretty village was most welcome.Plenty of places to eat within walking distance.Cottage was very clean well placed to see the area.
This was our third visit to this cottage, it is still the cleanest and most well equipped we have visited over the last 40 years.. It is an advantage to have the housekeeper nearby in case of any problems. Another lovely holiday.
We were not disappointed with our third trip to little thatch in Cerne abbas and we were delighted with the welcome extras that were provided. Thanks you we had a wonderful time despite the weather. The cottage is in an ideal position to take beautiful walks before breakfast.
Little Thatch is a grade 2 listed thatched cottage in the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset. The cottage is very well equipped and an excellent base for exploring West Dorset and beyond. It is kept very clean and the owners have kept it upgraded for their guests.
There is a good village shop for essentials and 3 pubs, we tried The New Inn which had a good range of beers, wines and sprits and friendly proprietors.
A great place for a relaxing break.
Cottage was beautiful.. Felt comfortable as soon as we walked through the door. Have stayed in a lot of cottages but this has to be one of the best. Easy access to a lot of different places. If we ever come back to Dorset I would definitely book Little Thatch again
We had a lovely time at Little Thatch but did find the bath plug upstairs did not work properly, or the cooker.. Both looked very good but were not user friendly. Other than that couldn't find fault. A beautiful cottage in a beautiful little village even though when we were there, there was plenty of snow. Would thoroughly recommend it once these minor faults are ironed out. The microwave however was excellent.
Upon opening the front door you are immediately in awe of the beautiful interior. State of the art utitliy and kitchen area. Cosy lounge with central heating throughout. There's a choice of bath etc (upstairs) and a shower room etc (downstairs). The cottage is only a few hundred yards from Cerne Abbas village which has a lovely cafe, general store/Post Office, craft/souvenir shop and 3 amazing pubs/restaurants. Excellent location for sightseeing Dorset (Weymouth, Poole etc.,). Highly recommended.
A lovely cottage with everything that we required.. There was a lovely touch by the owner of leaving us cake and biscuits for us to enjoy when we arrived and they were really appreciated.
The cottage's location is idyllic.
This beautiful cottage is a perfect base for discovering Dorset either walking the countryside or driving to the stunning villages and beaches. Everything you could possibly need on your holiday is here, including a lovely welcoming gift. The owners have thoughtfully equipped the cottage from the modern kitchen with dishwasher, the comfortable beds, the cosy lounge and the 2 lovely bathrooms to the lovely garden with sun loungers. Perfectly situated at the edge of Cerne Abbas, with 3 lovely pubs in the village, a lovely coffee shop (serving delicious breakfasts) and a beautiful church. A wonderful place in a wonderful part of the country.
Little thatch is a lovely cottage situated in a fantastic little village. The cottage was perfect for our family of 3 - with all the facilities and space for us and our baby that we needed. Cerne Abbas provided us with a great base for our holiday and we visited the 3 local pubs, local shop and park. We travelled easily to the coast and also enjoyed some fabulous walks around the area.
Exquisitely presented thatch cottage in one of the most picturesque villages in Dorset . Tiny and sunny terraced garden and parking right outside the cottage . Roses growing around the windows and so well appointed for a short or long stay . Nothing could be better for a Quintessential English holiday cottage in a charming village with country walks in beautiful unspoilt countryside . Highly recommended for couples especially .
This is a well appointed cottage in an historic village , we thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at this cottage , which is ideally positioned to explore the surrounding countryside by foot or travel in the car a short distance to west bay and bridport, thanks for a great week , see you next year
A charming well appointed period cottage, which was beautifully clean and comfortable. The kitchen was the best equipped and laid we have come across in nearly 30 years of renting holiday cottages. Our host Sophie was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for her, with a minor issue with the shower fixed promptly and effectively. The village itself is well worth a visit with a number of excellent pubs, a ruined abbey as well as the infamous Cerne Man. The location is ideal for visiting local attractions such as Corfe Castle, the Swanage Railway, the Sherborne Castles, Max Gate and many others. Easy shopping in Dorchester 8 miles away. A great location and one to which we will return.
The cottage location were perfect, we really loved everything and will definitely recommend to family and friends.
A very comfortable cottage which was well equipped. It was very olde worlde but with all mod cons!
A really lovely cottage in a picturesque location. The cottage was furnished with good attention to detail.
Little Thatch is a gorgeous cottage in a pretty village with lots of interesting things to see. Beautifully decorated and outside is as pretty as a picture.
We just loved this gorgeous cottage! Could have stayed forever. The village of Cerne Abbas is just as charming as Little Thatch, and is close to lots of must visit places and sites. We would highly recommend a visit to both the village and Little Thatch.
The cottage was impeccably presented and handy for access to the centre of a village renowned for its beauty and historical interest.
This is a lovely property, situated in the beautiful village of Cerne Abbas. It is ideally located for easy access to all the major tourist spots in Dorset. We were very impressed with the modern, up-to-date interior of this cottage - the kitchen was especially splendid with every 'mod-con' you could wish for. We had a wonderful stay and we would love to come back and take another holiday here at some stage in the future. Top marks!
The cottage was of a high standard and in an ideal location for seeing the area.
We loved staying in Little Thatch, it was a delight. The mix of old world and up to date ultra modern has been done perfectly. The village of Cerne Abbas is a real gem, the people in the village were very friendly and welcoming. The walks from the village are wonderful. Will be returning.
This is an exceptional cottage, both in its location in the centre of the village and the very high standard of the accommodation. There is such a lot to see and do in the area that one week isn't long enough!
We were the 1st people to rent Little Thatch and we were very impressed. Having rented many cottages over the past few years, this is in a league of its own. WOW factor from the moment you drive up to it. We would be more than happy to live there! Everything had been well planned for a rental and we enjoyed our time spent there. Will definitely go back as the cottage and the area are so lovely.
