  • “Shower head to big for downstairs shower, no room in shower to adjust temp, smaller directional shower head would be more effective, and would result in less water damage to wooden floor.”

The property

The Old Chapel is an attractive historic building dating back to 1816 located on the outskirts of Sutton Poyntz, near Weymouth, Dorset.

A contemporary and stylish holiday home, but still retaining period features such as chapel windows and flagstone flooring in the hallway.

The Old Chapel marries the best combination of an architecturally interesting exterior with an internal standard our discerning guests look for.

Exposed beams and wood-burning stove in exposed brick fireplace, alongside a range cooker in the kitchen mean you will instantly feel at home in this property.

Wrought iron bedframes in both bedrooms, ensure you get the best possible nights rest. The Springhead pub in Sutton Poyntz, has a reputation for good food coupled with a family atmosphere and nearby is a lovely duck pond.

A local shop is just a leisurely walk away.

Sutton Poyntz is surrounded by excellent country and coastal walks and the main resort of Weymouth with its long sandy beach is only a very short car or bus ride away.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit one of South Dorset's unique attractions such as Monkey World, Th Tank Museum or the Jurassic Coastline for fossil hunting or enjoying spectacular sea views.

However you may choose to spend your time, The Old Chapel is perfect for coastal and country pursuits as well as exploring all the visitor attractions south Dorset has to offer.

In the garden there is an outside seating area with an outside log burner if you would like to use this.
