  • Beautiful green pastures and amazing views of the coast on one side and village on the other. Access to the chapel is via a steep incline. Wear warm clothes as it can get windy. This is a must visit d...  more »
  • What a lovely little gem. Bracing walk up, great views out to sea. We went on a very windy, muddy day so take wellies and wear a woolly hat!  more »
  • Quite steep but short hill, worth the climb for fantastic views of the village, the whole length of Chesil Beach, the swannery and Portland. The Chapel provides an interesting focal point  more »

  • Lovely peaceful spot, a fairly short walk from the village - follow the path down the side of the post office. The views from up here are definitely worth it. There's nothing much inside, and the windows are just clear glass.
  • A fantastic place where you may really find yourself. The view is marvelous and the silence is trascendental. Only the whisper of the wind and the feeble rolling sound of the sea on the underlying beach. The chapel is a nude stone essential one room building, used as a lighthouse after the desolation of the village. It really worth the visit to Abbotsbury.
  • Beautiful views of the village and across the Fleet. Fantastic walking along the sw coast path
  • Amazing old Chapel which notably survived the Dissolution because of its role as a "lighthouse". Not difficult to see why, given its commanding position. It's a bit of a walk, but more than worth it. You can go inside, where a pleasantly eerie silence pervades.
  • Gorgeous English Heritage Site with free access to the chapel interior.
