Welcome to the Old Chapel at Sturminster Marshall

Located in the thriving village of Sturminster Marshall, the Chapel is a unique and beautiful holiday property and is the ideal base for your Dorset holiday. Whether it be to explore one of England’s most beautiful and historic counties, visit the world-renowned Jurassic coast or just relax on one of its award-winning beaches, Dorset has it al!! If it’s shopping, nightlife and excellent restaurants that you’re looking for, then Bournemouth and Poole are nearby, as well as the historic cities of Dorchester and Salisbury.

The Chapel is very dear to our hearts (our son was even baptized there)!! It was built in 1875 and was used for worship between 1876 and 2008, at which time it was offered for sale by the Methodist Church. Our aim in converting it was to create a unique and luxurious holiday property in Dorset, which was both comfortable and spacious, while still maintaining its key features and being sensitive to the Chapel’s position within the village’s conservation area, overlooking the ancient Maypole Green.

The Chapel was converted in 2010 and provides accommodation for four (+ sofa bed). It has two bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with en-suites. There is a raised dining area in the front of the main Chapel windows under the twenty four-bulb crystal chandelier (which hangs 2.5 metres from the Chapel ceiling)!! The spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine floor which hosts an open plan sitting room, featuring the exposed Chapel beams and Rose window. The old vestry is now a large breakfast kitchen, with all mod cons and leads to a landscaped, enclosed garden with patio furniture and a separate, raised decking area which captures the garden’s sun. Wi-fi is available in the property.

We’re sure that you will enjoy using our converted church as a base for your Jurassic coast holiday in Dorset and look forward to welcoming you to our lovely property. If you have any questions, please contact us using the address and phone number on the website.
