This former Methodist Chapel is Listed Grade II and the English Heritage listing suggests it was built in 1838 of rendered stone walls beneath a slate roof.

The property was purchased in 1998 by the Girl Guide Association and planning consent was obtained for use as a 'Meeting Hall'. In 1999 the premises were refurbished and the first floor accommodation constructed. The works included installation of gas central heating, a Kitchen and Cloakrooms.

The property is suitable for a wide range of commercial uses or conversion to a residential property. Any change of use will require planning consent and this will be the responsibility of the purchaser after completion.

There are restrictive covenants against the sale of alcohol, gambling and use as a dance hall.

The property is situated in a quiet lane just on the edge of Colyton Town Centre and close to the River Coly. Also within a short walk is the Colyton Tram Station (trams follow the delightful River Axe valley from the coast at Seaton).

The picturesque country town of Colyton benefits from a host of pretty cottages and fine period homes. The town is surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside and is well away from busy main 'A' roads - a delightful place to live and enjoy the thriving local community. There are local independent shops and 3 pubs, a town hall, doctors surgery, excellent primary school, playing fields etc. and also close by is the renowned Colyton Grammar School.

The coast at Seaton is about 3 miles to the south, Lyme Regis approximately 8 miles away and there is a main line railway station (Exeter to Waterloo line) within a short drive at Axminster.
