Converted chapel
The church was converted into residential dwellings in 1994 and consists of three houses - the Tower, the Nave, and the Chancel. The Chancel still retains the large East window just beyond the alter area, which is now one of the many features adorning this unique house. Much of the original stained glass has been retained in all the windows, especially the magnificent East window, which overlooks the Purbeck Hills that run through Dorset.

Interaction with guestsWe will send an arrival document which describes all the features of the Chancel. The house is simple to run! The keys are in a key-safe by the front door. Jackie manages the house but the people in the Nave next door know the property and can help out at any time. The car charger in the car park is now up and running. We know quite a lot about Dorset and the Isle of Purbeck and will answer any questions. We walk a lot and know a lot of good walks in Dorset, particularly circular ones. We are sampling the pubs and restaurants all the time!

Map
About the neighbourhood
The County town of Dorchester is a mere twenty minute drive away, and is worth a visit, especially on Wedneday's which is market day. You may even find you have purchased a cow or sheep from the market - if you're not careful! The house is in the Purbeck region of Dorset. Corfe Castle, Swanage, the famous Studland beach, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are all very close by. Monkey World and Bovington Tank Museum are even closer.
Getting around
A car is essential. This is Dorset so driving long distances is quick! We are close to Wool and Wareham train stations but you need a car to get to either. There are busses but you need to know the timetables as the services are regular but infrequent. There are many walks you can do straight from the Chancel. There are even more just a short drive away.
Access
Car required
How to get there
If travelling from London by car take the following route M25, M3, M27 then the A31. This gets you to Bere Regis in Dorset. From Bere Regis go to Wool, then head to Wareham. (Taking you past Monekey World and the Tank Museum.) The church is on the right mid-way between the two. From Croydon it is about 2 hours 20 minutes. From the Midlands or the North pick up the A34 and head south to the M3 and then as above. Else turn west on to the A303. This takes you past Stonehenge. Turn south at Warminster which takes you to Dorchester and then follow signs to Wareham. Then as above. Coming from the south or the west head to Dorchester then follow signs to Wareham. You can use the A34 to Bere Regis then as above.
