  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Well worth the walk (fairly steep in places) with spectacular views. Reminds me a bit of Glastonbury Tor.
  • The Chapel enjoys a commanding view of the surrounding countryside as well as Chesil Beach. A rewarding climb for sure.
  • Extremely simple with a bare earth floor inside but charming in its simplicity. There are good views of the Fleet Lagoon and Swannery from outside and it is a good place to starwatch at night because there isvery little light pollution there
  • Beautiful part of the country, Abbotsbury is a stunning village.
