The Chapel occupies a quiet location on the edge of the small rural hamlet of Eworthy. The hamlet itself is surrounded by attractive rolling countryside and is within easy reach of the nearby Roadford Lake with its delightful walks, together with sailing club and windsurfing, the nearby town of Okehampton offers an excellent range of shops and services, three supermarkets including a Waitrose, together with a range of locally and nationally owned businesses. The town has schooling from infant to sixth form level, a modern hospital and state of the art leisure centre. The towns of Launceston and Holsworthy are also within easy travelling distance. From the property, there is comparatively access to the A30 dual carriageway providing a direct link west into Cornwall or east to the cathedral and university of Exeter with its mainline rail, international airport and M5 motorway connections. In addition, the north coasts of Devon and Cornwall are within easy driving distance, whilst the Dartmoor National Park is easily accessible at Okehampton with its hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt scenery.

The property dates to 1863 and is of stone and slate construction. The building is arranged over over two floors, the main chapel hall is accessed from the front having a high vaulted ceiling, being 16'4" in height. The original pulpit is still in place with a painted inscription above. There are four high arched windows with two further windows and two doors to front. Electric heaters, power and light connected. On the lower ground floor is the large Meeting Room, having windows to front and rear and a fitted Kitchen Area. There are two night storage heaters and two central support pillars. Beyond is a Lobby and Cloakroom, having low level wc and hand basin.

The main chapel hall is approached from the road via a tarmac pathway/small garden area with two entrance doors with porches over. To the side of the building, a path leads down to the lower ground floor area, continuing on to give access to an external wc. There is a side area of garden, which could be adapted for further parking, although there is a tarmac pull in off the lane. The garden is bordered by a stock proof fence, directly adjoins open fields and enjoys some attractive views towards the hamlet.
