Alternatively there is planning consent to use the property as a single dwelling house.

The three units; The School House, The Chapel and The Apartment can be let individually or combined for inter generational families or for other larger groups. The business is well established with a long record of lettings and forward bookings operated through the clients website www.holidaycottages-bath.co.uk/ebenezer/chapel/

The Chapel is ideally situated for property letting being in an attractive rural area surrounded by countryside with a number of walks in the immediate vicinity and under 9 miles to the city of Bath with its renowned range of retail and leisure opportunities, less than 7 miles to the city of Bristol and within easy reach of the Cotswolds, Mendip Hills and the villages of Wiltshire including the picturesque village of Castle Combe which is approximately 13 miles away via the A420.

THE BUSINESS:

We are offering the property for sale as a going concern with forward bookings and part furnished. It is presently accounted with other properties owned by the sellers which do not form part of the sale but access to accounts and projections will be giving on signing the confidentiality agreement. The current turnover is healthy but we feel there is scope to significantly increase it by accepting more group bookings and developing the marketing of the holiday letting opportunities.

PLANNING:

Planning to change of use to 3 self contained holiday lets was granted on 5th June 2007 subject to conditions. Ref: PK07/1778/F South Gloucestershire Council. A copy of the planning consent is available for inspection at the agents office.
On 9th December 2019 permission was granted by South Gloucestershire Council (subject to conditions) for change of use of Ebenezer Chapel from holiday lets (Use Class C1) to a single residential dwelling house ( Use Class C3). This consent has not been implemented.

VIEWINGS:

Strictly by prior appointment with the selling agent. The property is in holiday use and viewing will be restricted to a limited number of hours on the changeover day which is generally a Friday.

Although these particulars are thought to be materially correct their accuracy cannot be guaranteed and they do not form part of any contract.
