Just three miles inland from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and close to the east Devon and Dorset border, this amazing renovation and design project offers guests fabulous contemporary family-sized accommodation.

Musbury Chapel has been given the most wonderful new lease of life and is now a top quality holiday home with three bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms, a huge sitting-room, a playroom and an open plan kitchen/dining-room.

There is a fully enclosed garden with open views across the fields – a lovely safe place for young children and guests who wish to bring their dogs. The chapel is adjacent to the cow maternity field of a local farm, so there may be some farmyard aromas.

The dramatic coastline here has a great mix of pebbled and sandy beaches, stunning coastal path walks and pretty fishing villages.

The flexible accommodation at Musbury Chapel is a delight; contemporary, clever and thoughtful design features have been introduced alongside the existing character of the building and the end result is a truly special property.

The chapel is in the village of Musbury where there is a good local pub, The Golden Hind, and garage/shop within walking distance – an excellent location in an area that offers something for all.

Lyme Regis with its iconic harbour, boat trips and sandy beaches is just six miles away, there is a new Wetlands Bird and Nature Reserve in the Axe Valley just three miles away, and a brand new Jurassic Visitor Centre and Seaton train station in the seaside town of Seaton just three miles away.

For those who love their food, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage HQ and Trill Farm are neighbours on the Trinity Hill Nature Reserve – both offering a wonderful range of courses and unforgettable dining experiences which you could book in advance to fit in with your holiday dates. The River Cottage Canteen can be found in Axminster, as well as a thriving weekly market on Thursday morning for local producers. Millers farm shop in nearby Kilmington stocks local, French and organic produce and delicious holiday treats.
