West Littleton is a small hamlet in South Gloucestershire, England. It is located between the M4 and the A420. The closest amenities are in Marshfield and the historic city of Bath is a short distance to the south. The stately home, Dyrham Park, is located a few hundred metres from the village.
West Littleton shot to international attention as being the hideout retreat for Hugh Grant at the time of his alleged affair with a Los Angeles prostitute. The world's press descended upon this charming little village and camped outside Grant's house. The village boasts approximately 25 houses and has a population of around 50 inhabitants. There is a working farm, a red telephone box and a church. The Beaufort Hunt regularly uses the village green as a starting point for their hunts though this has obviously been somewhat curtailed due to the recent legislation banning fox hunting.
West Littleton is considered a gem of a village with a farming background. Some houses in the village date back to the 15th century with some possibly even back to the 14th.
