The Old Chapel (Dorset)
from £82 /night help
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Built in 1876 and recently imaginatively and tastefully renovated this 5 star converted chapel overlooks the village green in the quiet Dorset village of Sturminster Marshall with its traditional maypole, commemorative oak trees and thatched cottages and is just a short walk from a welcoming pub and the village general stores. Close to the Jurassic Coast, the New Forest and the south coast beaches it provides a perfect base for family or friends wishing to explore this beautiful and varied county. The sophisticated accommodation has been arranged in a reverse level with a spacious open plan lounge that features the original beams with a gallery overlooking the formal dining area giving views of the green through the chapel windows. The large, modern designer kitchen diner opens onto a sheltered sunny rear courtyard garden with table and chairs for al fresco dining. The hallway, flooded with light from the chapel windows leads to the formal galleried dining area passing the two comfortable bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. The owners have created a very special property with a welcoming and relaxing ambience and we recommend The Old Chapel very highly.

The Dorset region
Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than the beautiful South West. From dramatic Dartmoor to the stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South West, its scenery, attractions, and it's otherworldly pace of life.
