Description from owner

Description

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

Further details indoors

The property consists of a traditional entrance porch leading into the large open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen.

The sitting area has a comfortable sofa (not shown), chairs and a log burner (logs supplied). Originally this would have been the knave and altar area.

There are two staircases, one leading to the mezzanine, a double bedroom that has a spectacular reinforced glass balcony overlooking the ground floor.

The Kitchen has fully fitted oak units and is fully equipped with full-size fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc and the old “emu house”, (yes it did hold emus!) houses the washing machine, and is a useful “boot room” for muddy boots, coats etc after long walks in the grounds or fossil hunting on the beach!

The former Vestry, the double bedroom, is accessed via a stone spiral staircase – not suitable for Friar Tuck!!

The ground floor bedroom is light and airy with twin beds

Further details outdoors

Outside there is a rear garden and car parking area with garden furniture and lawned area to relax in.

In the front there is a private quiet lawned area overlooking the grounds and lake. There is a private beach within walking distance (not for the elderly, very young or infirm)

“Hidden gem - perfect place, perfectly presented”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

I booked St. Pancras about 2 month in advance and was surprised to see it still available for christmas. The contact with Anne was really nice and the booking process was straight forward. Confirmation of payments included. In the meantime I started to plan a proposal to my Girlfriend at the church. I decided to do it shortly after arriving. This proved to be a challenge as I had no chance to visit the place and set it up, but Anne offered to help out with no hesitation. We drove up from Weymouth at dark and the route can be challenging if you go through Lyme Regis...which Anne's directions (kindly mailed in advance) told us about, but my SatNav still decided to put to the test. The roads are narrow on the mains and tiny off the mains. If you stay on the A35 it is not much of a problem. Arriving on the Rousdon Estate is an Adventure on its own. The place is amazing and we found the church easily. Finding the way to the front was possible, but a little hand drawn map or a photo of the overview displayed near the entrance would be an added plus. As we walked in, we could hardly believe our eyes. The place is beautiful from top to bottom. The fireplace was on, flowers arranged and Anne did a fabulous job to make the engagement as wonderful as it has been. Everything is available in this place and if there would have been a problem Anne and Barry are a call away. Both kindly offer assistance, but leave you happily to get on with your holiday and enjoy it as much as possible. We stayed for 6 nights including a dinner for 8 people. Christmas was amazing and everybody felt the spirit set in. The calm of the church did its job and the high sealing made it airy and open at the same time. I believe this place is a hidden gem and worth every penny. Anne and Barry are doing a wonderful job to keep it in this great condition. Lots of features to discover and the surrounding area is great for long walks. There is nothing to not like about this building and it does get really cosy and warm after the first 24h of wood in the stove. As people said - the shower is an electric shower, which means it does provide a normal pressure, but no power shower. Absolutely sufficient in my view. Thanks for the amazing time...I would visit again every time.

“A stunningly beautiful place to stay.”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2012

Our stay at st pancras was perfect from start to finish. I couldn't find one thing to fault it. A very beautiful conversion with attention to every detail. When we arrived there was milk and coffee and biscuits which was so welcoming after a long journey. The beds were really comfortable, the facilities excellent and the atmosphere of the whole place very unusual. I would recommend this to families with teenagers as they loved the novelty of the place and it was close to Lyme with plenty to do.

“Christmas in Wonderland”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2011

Arrived Christmas Eve, to a hot stove and Christmas decorations. Snow everywhere and a stock of logs by the hearth. The church is still full of arts-and-crafts influenced carvings and tiles and is gorgeous. Countryside is glorious, supermarkets are a short drive away. My daughter had the adventure of her young life. It is worth noting that the tower bedroom is very cold in severe weather, but the views through the leaded windows make up for it.
