Space to relax with the family

General

  • Well-maintained peaceful lakeside site on a farm in Litton Cheney
  • A 15-minute drive to Jurassic Coast beaches; half an hour to Weymouth
  • Cafe on site, plus lake for swims, fishing and watersports

Litton Lakes is a family-run Dorset lakeside site with spacious pitches on a working farm in the pretty village of Litton Cheney.

The area is something of a walkers’ paradise, with direct access to a network of footpaths and bridleways, and a dog-walking field just next to the site for any four-legged pals that haven’t had enough of a stretch. If you’d rather set out on two wheels you may like to note that National Cycle Route 2 passes the entrance to the site (and it’s suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities).

Back at base after any such outings, guests can sign up for more activity with paddleboarding and kayaking on the lake, do a bit of fishing, take a dip in the fresh water or simply settle down to admire the far-reaching countryside views (firepits can be hired and logs are available to buy if you need a bit of warmth to help you dry off after a dip).

And if what you really need is some sustenance? The site’s own Purple Turtle Café should be your first port of call, for splendid cakes accompanied by cups of tea and freshly brewed coffee by the lake. You’re also welcome to light barbecues for bigger meals, or you might like to take a stroll down to the local pub, five minutes’ walk away.

This is a peaceful and family-friendly site that’s particularly attractive for those with an interest in photography as there’s some gorgeous scenery to snap nearby. It’s also in an area of very low light pollution, so stargazing should be on the schedule too if possible.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    Beautiful site with lovely views. Very well kept with clean facilities and lovely people too. Came straight over to us as soon as we parked up and told us everything we needed to know about the site and places/local attractions near us. Would definitely recommend coming here and would love to go back in the summer to do some kayaking in the lake. There was a beach not far from the site at all with beautiful views. We really enjoyed our stay.

Nice quiet getaway weekend, lovely lake and likeable staff.29/09/2020

  • Liked: 

    Lovely quiet site when we stayed, large flat pitch, good hard road round site.
    Good large dog walking field and paths everywhere.
    Decent size pond for fishing, SUP , Kayak etc - not many fish being caught but the water is gin clear. Location is excellent although roads through the village to the North / East (A35 Dorchester) are rather narrow for a large caravan / motorhome - best to approach from the West - (Burton). Fantastic for stargazing and bird watching etc - Kingfishers on the little stream. Pub 5 just mins walk and 30 mins to another good one in Puncknowle.
    Great for walkers, 1 hour hike to fabulous sea views up on the knoll to the south, another 30 mins and your down on the beach at West Bexington.
    Fire baskets were very popular - pre-booking advised!
    We will be back!

    Disliked: 

    Only one flushing loo for those without their own facilities and the sluice manhole is a tad tricky to use up the lane. It's an open, rather exposed field site (good for the stargazing!) - a hedge up the middle of the field might make it look a little prettier and act as a wind break for the tenting types - they were getting battered by the north west wind.
    Lake might benefit from some weed clearance to make a few 'hot spots' by the fishing swims as us anglers like it a bit easier!
