Description from owner

Description

Capel Cartref is a newly renovated chapel offering a unique and luxurious space for holidaymakers. The chapel provides a warm and welcoming haven. The gallery hosts a vaulted ceiling with original beams. Pews have been reclaimed and used around the chapel as window sills, kitchen cornices and window shutters. The chapel has been finished to a very high specification with all of the comforts of home. Breakfast and dining can be held in the spacious modern kitchen or on the decked veranda which overlooks the trout filled River Twrch - maybe catch your supper but look out for the herons! Capel Cartref suits people who wish to walk, sightsee, (Brecon, numerous waterfalls, the beachers of The Gower and Swansea Bay, Black Mountains, Afan Park) cycle, fish, play golf, pony trek or just kick back and take in a movie on DVD on the 42" plasma. This is the perfect accommodation for family reunions... a spacious property to spend time together without getting under each others feet.

Getting around

Ideally, guests will have a car in order to make travelling easier. There is a train station in Neath and Swansea but the bus runs only once daily to Neath from Cwmtwrch and so a taxi would most likely be necessary. Most of the places to visit are over a 15 minute drive away. If people want to walk, there are local walks but the best views and experiences, i.e. for waterfalls, rocks, etc. are a further distance away and so require a vehicle. Motorbiking is great in South Wales as lots of the roads covering the Black Mountains and Brecon are unhindered by traffic lights etc.

Interaction with guest

Prior to persons visit to Capel Cartref, information of recommended places to visit is passed on via email. Visitors are also provided with access details and the pin number for the key pad, in order that they retrieve the keys and enter the chapel independently. Once the guest has arrived and is settled in, there is only interaction between us if there is an emergency.

House rules

Where we welcome groups to the chapel, we would also appreciate that the neighbours are respected by keeping the noise down, especially throughout the summer evenings as the sound carries across the river. With regards to smoking, we do not encourage it within the house but accept that people may want to smoke out in garden. This would be ok so long as people safely extinguish the cigarette and dispose of the butts appropriately and NOT in the river. Thank you

“Relaxing, peaceful and very very comfortable”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2011

The chapel has been beautifully converted all the rooms are spacious and very well furnished but for me the highlight is the fantastically equipped kitchen. Set in a stunning valley with a river running past the setting is superb. The only problem was that we did not stay long enough. I cannot imagine how anyone would fail to be impressed by this property. Highly recommended

“Beautiful place, stunning location.”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2011

From the moment we booked we received plenty of helpful imformation about the property and the surrounding area. The property is beautiful. We were amazed at how the owners had renovated the chapel and managed to retain so many of the original features. We had a marvelous experience. You should try it.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your positive comments. We're looking forward to having you back at New Year... Yonni and Marnie

“Wonderfully peaceful accomodation near Black Mountain walks”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2011

I stayed in this lovely converted chapel 3 times: with friends, with kids and with my parents who were visiting from Germany. My father, a building engineer, commended Marnie for the excellent quality of both the internal and external features. She's made it into an exceptional holiday accomodation that suits people who like peace and quiet as much as those who enjoy outdoor activities. Everybody who stayed with me said they had a very comfortable and relaxed time at the chapel. Can't wait to go again soon.

Response from the owner Hi there, Thank you so much for your feedback. You probably know the chapel as well as we do now! Looking forward to your return, Yonni and Marnie
