Always a comfortable stay

St Pancras Chapel is a holiday home offering self-catering accommodation, deep in the West Somerset countryside on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Built on the site of a holy well by the Cistercian monks of nearby Cleeve Abbey in the 13th century, today the chapel combines the attractions of rural life with all the amenities of the modern age.

While you’ll have plenty to do at St Pancras Chapel – with facilities ranging from the snooker table to lawn games such as croquet and boules – there are many great places to travel for couples, kids and the whole family in the surrounding area; click here for the top places to visit, including the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and its Jurassic Coast; the steam trains plying the West Somerset Railway line from Minehead to Bishop’s Lydeard; and the castle, yarn market and inns of the medieval village of Dunster.

Take a walk or take it easy – but eat well!

For guests keen to immerse themselves in the beautiful local countryside, Jane, the manager of St Pancras Chapel, can pack a hamper for you and advise on places to walk – or even lead a guided walking route. For an easy night in, you can choose from Jane’s menu of home-cooked meals using locally sourced ingredients.

Or just kick back and ease into the rural seclusion of St Pancras Chapel, relax and gather your thoughts. Guests’ testimonials talk of the opportunity for quiet relaxation and reflection in this enchanting oasis of tranquility, holy spring and gardens in their peaceful river valley.
