St Pancras is the lovingly restored old church situated on the beautiful Rousdon Country Estate, near Lyme Regis set amidst 350 acres of parkland. A Grade ll listed building formally the church for the estate.

There are lovely amenity walks for the residents, including access to private beach.

The Church has been restored by the new owners to an exceptionally high standard and is situated in its own grounds overlooking the lake and parkland with glimpses of the sea beyond. The property is very old with wonderful features that have been preserved by Natural England, but please bear in mind that some of these quirky characteristics may make it unsuitable for some people e.g. one stone spiral staircase is narrow and quite steep.

St Pancras would appeal to those looking for something completely different, is full of gracious charm and atmosphere for a very comfortable and relaxing holiday.

Our local attractions include the home of the popular TV programme River Cottage @

The famous Jurassic seaside resort of Lyme Regis is only 5 minutes drive away.
