St Pancras is the lovingly restored old church situated on the beautiful Rousdon Country Estate, near Lyme Regis set amidst 350 acres of parkland. A Grade ll listed building formally the church for the estate.

There are lovely amenity walks for the residents, including access to private beach.

The Church has been restored by the new owners to an exceptionally high standard and is situated in its own grounds overlooking the lake and parkland with glimpses of the sea beyond. The property is very old with wonderful features that have been preserved by Natural England, but please bear in mind that some of these quirky characteristics may make it unsuitable for some people e.g. one stone spiral staircase is narrow and quite steep.

This is an amazing find; so pleased we stayed here. Stayed 3 nights with my boyfriend and a couple of friends, and we all agreed it was fantastic. It's a relaxing haven to come back to after a busy day's sightseeing; the accommodation and surrounding land are beautiful, and very peaceful. Anne and Barry go above and beyond with extras:... more

Just spent a long weekend at St Pancras, and would highly recommend it. The converted church got a huge "wow" when we walked in the door to the welcoming sight of a roaring fire in the wood-burner, and the building itself is simply stunning, retaining many of the original features (the photos don't do it full justice). Thoughtful touches like... more

Stayed here for a short break - absolutely beautiful accommodation, log burner lit for our arrival. Everything you could possibly need or want, and more, was supplied. The chapel was renovated with style, retaining it's character and many original features. Only downside is that you do need a car to get to a pub in the evening! more

Additional amenities & feature info
The property consists of a traditional entrance porch leading into the large open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen.

The sitting area has a comfortable sofa (not shown), chairs and a log burner (logs supplied). Originally this would have been the knave and altar area.

There are two staircases, one leading to the mezzanine, a double bedroom that has a spectacular reinforced glass balcony overlooking the ground floor.

The Kitchen has fully fitted oak units and is fully equipped with full-size fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc and the old “emu house”, (yes it did hold emus!) houses the washing machine, and is a useful “boot room” for muddy boots, coats etc after long walks in the grounds or fossil hunting on the beach!

The former Vestry, the double bedroom, is access...
