The property

An interesting, unusual, detached former chapel, fully rebuilt in 2008 to replicate the original wooden structure dating back to 1867, in the tranquil, rural hamlet of Huntingford, close to the borders of Dorset and Wiltshire.

This quality renovation has inspired interest locally and nationally, having been featured on TV's Homes Under the Hammer and in Dorset Life magazine.

The characterful, timber-clad interior, with its high beamed, vaulted ceiling and superb galleried landing, gives the living space a light and airy feel, while there is a lovely kitchen and bathroom at the rear, as well as an attractive eaves bedroom.

The chapel stands in its own garden surrounded by glorious countryside and farm land, with access to plenty of walks.

Locally, there are country pubs serving good food and real ales, with trout fishing also available close by.

There's plenty to see and do in the area: the magnificent house and gardens at Stourhead, racing at Wincanton, Shaftesbury and Longleat House and Safari Park.

A superb and unique holiday home in a most beautiful part of the country.

Ideal for walking and taking in the superb country views, the area is well served by attractive inns and is also very well placed for exploring numerous National Trust properties and gardens, including Stourhead, only 4 miles away. Longleat House and Safari Park, as well as the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury, featured in the famous 'Hovis' advert, are also an easy drive. A little further afield, Stonehenge, Wilton House, the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury and even the stunning Dorset Jurassic Coast are all easily accessible.
