A charming detached character stone cottage with a self-contained annexe in this highly sought after Bride Valley village, just back from the Jurassic Coast.


Chapel Cottage is a charming detached character home, together with a self-contained annexe. As the name implies, it was formerly a Wesleyan Baptist Chapel, dating back to 1849, with main walls of solid stone under a slate roof. The chapel has been subject to extensive refurbishment and also enlargement to create the self-contained annexe. The chapel features a large living/dining room with multi-fuel stove, kitchen with Rayburn cooker range and shaker style units, two double bedrooms (both with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams) and good sized bathroom/shower room. The annexe features a living room/kitchen, double bedroom and en-suite shower room.

The property offers excellent home income potential. The annexe would be ideal for long term lets, holiday lets, as an annexe for a dependant relative,guest suite or for someone working from home, subject to any necessary planning consents.


Chapel Cottage is approached through a 5-bar gate onto a long gravelled driveway, providing extensive parking (with potential to create more garden) leading to a detached garage.

There is a well established and stocked garden enjoying a sunny west facing aspect and very private with areas of lawn, together with a whole range of mature shrubs and an adjoining terrace bounded by natural stone walls. There is also the possibility to create further garden on the south side of the annexe by relocating the oil tank.


Chapel Cottage is pleasantly located on the western side of the village centre and adjoins a public footpath giving access to open fields and down to the coast. Puncknowle is an attractive village in a beautiful area known as The Bride Valley. The village has a thriving community and amenities include a thatched pub, church and village hall. Bus services are available in the neighbouring village/coastal road in Swyre. The nearby village of Litton Cheney has a popular primary school, whilst the coastal villages of Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury are both within only a few miles.

The area is designated as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the World Heritage coastline/Chesil Beach is very nearby at West Bexington.
