Catherston Leweston is a small village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in southwest England. It lies in the West Dorset administrative district, approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) northeast of Lyme Regis. Dorset County Council estimate that in 2013 the population of the parish was 30.
The village's Tudor-style manor house was built in 1887 and the Blue Lias-built church dates from 1858. Part of an earlier medieval manor house belonging to the Wadham family of Catherston, a cadet branch of the family that founded Wadham College, Oxford, remains beside the later house.
