The Old Chapel
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Old Chapel was fully re-built in 2008 to replicate the original wooden structure dating back to 1867, and has been featured in the press locally and nationally, on TV's 'Homes Under The Hammer' and in 'Dorset Life' magazine because of its interesting and unusual appearance and interior. This detached former chapel is situated in the peaceful rural hamlet of Huntingford and features a stunning timber-clad interior, with a high beamed, vaulted ceiling and splendid galleried landing overlooking the living area. The whole property has a light, airy and spacious ambience. The accommodation includes one attractive eaves bedroom, a fitted kitchen and bathroom at the rear, and a living area which includes sitting and dining areas and a warming wood burner. The Old Chapel provides fabulous holiday living in a glorious part of the country.

The West Country region
Explore the fossils and stunning beaches of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, visit historic Sherborne and Shaftesbury, or enjoy the footpaths, country lanes and thatched-roof pubs Dorset offers.
Situated in the midst of splendid unspoiled countryside on the borders of Dorset and Wiltshire, Huntingford is also close to the famous attractions of Longleat House and Safari Park with its lions, and the historic hilltop town of Shaftesbury (made famous by the original Hovis advert). The mysterious stone circle of Stonehenge, the stunning cathedral city of Salisbury, Wilton House and Dorset’s incredible Jurassic Coast are all a little further afield, but still easily accessible.
