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 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.
