Perfectly situated to visit the beautiful Dorset coast, only 10 minutes from Lyme Regis.
Absolutely amazing church, child friendly with a downstairs bedroom to keep little ones safe, also a small selection of toys and books which was a lovely touch, even a tiny wooden chair and stool which my 3 year old adored.
Lovely open living space and very comfortable beds, absolutely spotless. We booked last minute and the owners were very quick at responding to our emails and very helpful and welcoming.
It is situated on a private estate which makes it very quiet and we spotted lots of nearby wildlife including squirrels and the biggest spiders I have ever seen!
I loved it here and I would recommend it to anyone and would love to visit again.

“Wonderful church conversion - full of character”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Simply beautiful church retaining its integrity whilst being practical accommodation. Peaceful and relaxing with lovely garden area. Perfect for couple or small family due to only one bathroom. Hosts were very good at communication and left us flowers to welcome us.

“Beautiful conversion of a great building”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We booked to stay St Pancras on the strength of the reviews here on Trip Advisor, and were delighted to find that they were completely true. We have booked a large number of self catering accommodations over the years, and I can honestly say this was one of the very best.
The church has been beautifully converted, and the quality of the workmanship and the decorative standard is exceptional.

Anne and Barry were extremely helpful when making the arrangements, and welcomed us to the property, checked that we were comfortable and had everything we needed, and generally did everything they could to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.

The property has one double room (up the church tower), one twin, and a double in the mezzanine floor within the main church itself. The kitchen, dining, and living room shares this main space within the church, and there is more than adequate seating, eating, and sleeping space for six people. All of the facilities are excellent, and the stained glass windows and excellent wood burner make for a truly beautiful space for spending evenings surrounded by the great decorations of preraphelite style tiles and excellent woodwork.

The church is within the Rousden Estate, located a few miles West of Lyme Regis. You can walk into Lyme from the house if you don't mind a few miles walk. The estate is a lovely private parkland style property, and just adds to the overall atmosphere of the place.

We greatly enjoyed the property and will certainly stay there again.

Six of us went and six happy customers left (age range 9 - 70!). Blown away by all the features and calming "atmosphere" of the church. Lots to explore and we all enjoyed the costal walk. Shame the storm damage meant we couldn't access the beach but managed a good haul of fossils at Charmouth just ten minutes drive away. Looking for another reason to visit again, thank you for a wonderful stay.

“'Heavenly, Divine, a pearl of great price'”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We loved staying at St Pancras for a long weekend of fossil hunting and a River Cottage cookery day. It's a glorious retreat from the mayhem of usual life but excellently positioned for both these fun activities, and for walking from the door, in countryside and on the coastal path (although check this is open after the slip and heave that's going on behind Lyme Regis).
We reveled in the many beautiful features of the chapel and its sympathetic conversion, and glimpses of the sea from the windows. St Pancras was spotless, cosy and warm, with a great supply of logs for the woodburner, and lots of other welcoming touches. We didn't test out the proximity of a local pub/bistro, but our grown-up children caught the bus back from Lyme Regis to the bus stop just outside the country estate that provides such a lovely environment.
There was the odd spider inside, but that's par for the course in such an historic building - wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
