The Old Chapel has been thoughtfully refurbished, and beautifully designed with a contemporary neutral palette, creating a light-filled holiday home, which is perfect for gathering friends and family together for a special break in Dorset.
This converted former United Reform chapel has been carefully designed to cleverly showcase the original character features, alongside contemporary furnishings and styling. The Old Chapel is an 'upside-down' property with the light-filled open-plan kitchen, sitting and dining space on the first floor, making the most of the village and rural views.
As you enter through the double doors on the ground floor, you will find a long hallway where the three bedrooms are located, one being a double, and two are twin bedded rooms. The contemporary family bathroom sits at one end of the hallway, and the stylish shower room at the other, and the ground floor has underfloor heating throughout. Large double height windows span both floors, and a wooden staircase leads you up to the sociable first floor open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area.
The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, and a traditional AGA converted to be electric. In the sitting area, a wood burning stove takes pride of place, and invites you to relax on the comfortable sofas for a cosy evening watching a movie on the Sky television with Sonos surround sound bar. A corner workstation, stocked bookshelves and a selection of family board games complete the living area. The property has an electric air source heat pump fitted to promote its low carbon footprint.
To the rear of the property, you can enjoy long afternoons sitting in the sheltered sun trap garden, furnished with an outdoor table and chairs, a parasol, fire pit and charcoal barbecue.
The Old Chapel sits proudly in the picturesque village of Stoke Abbott, and is just a short stroll away from the village pub. Nearby you will find the popular Iron Age hillforts of Lewesdon Hill and Pilsdon Pen, which offer outstanding views across West Dorset and out to the sea beyond. The popular towns of Beaminster and Bridport are just a short drive away, and the Jurassic Coast and beaches at Charmouth and Lyme Regis are within easy reach.
