Situated in Bridport, The Chantry dates from circa 1300 and is the oldest secular building in this charming Dorset town. It is believed to have originally served as a primitive lighthouse and toll collection point but became a chantry, or priestís house in 1362, when a new chapel in the local church was built.

Features that remain from this era are a piscina in the arched alcove of the romantic main bedroom and a rare pigeon loft on the top floor, which would have supplemented the priestís income but now gives a delightful honeycomb effect. Following Edward VIís dissolution of the chantries, the building was converted to residential use.

The simple attractive lime washed walls of the interior are complemented by furniture of the Arts & Crafts movement of the early part of the 20th-century.

The Chantry is ideally placed for family holidays, exploring the Dorset coast and rolling countryside immortalised by the works of Thomas Hardy.

About The Vivat Trust
Each of Vivatís properties has been evocatively decorated to reflect its fascinating history. But staying in such historic surroundings does not mean that you have to forego modern comforts as every one of Vivatís kitchens is equipped with those appliances that have become essential in our homes. When you arrive you will be welcomed with a gift pack containing tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and jam and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. There are no hidden extras as all the above plus heating, electricity, coal, logs, linen and towels are all included in the rental.

A Vivat Trust self-catering holiday is a unique experience to be enjoyed by couples, families, friends and your pets too!
