Description from owner

Description

Capel Cartref is a spacious five bedroom, pet friendly accommodation, often described by guests as 'home from home'. The chapel is a perfect space for families and groups with it's speedy WIFI and great amenities. Come and relax in the gallery that hosts a quirky space with its vaulted ceiling and original beams. Notice the pews that 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 River Twrch. Capel Cartref suits walkers, cyclists, and people who just love to take in the view, or just kick back and take in a movie on the 42" plasma using our Amazon Firestick. This is the perfect accommodation for family reunions... a spacious property to spend time together without getting under each others feet. We have board games, various books and jigsaws for the cosy evenings. The property is within easy reach (via bicycle or car) of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons), Black Mountains, Afan Park and Henrhyd Waterfalls. Also South Wales is host to the beaches of The Gower, Mumbles and Swansea Bay, these are accessible by car. The Crown Pub has opened approximately 500 yards from the chapel, which means eating out closely is an easy option.

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 a mere 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. For eating locally, The Crown Inn is 500 yards from Capel Cartref

Interaction with guest

The entire home will be available to you and your family/friends. Access is normally via a key box, allowing guests more flexibility and less face-to-face with contact. Messaging typically via WhatsApp upon your arrival and, again, upon departure.

“Spacious and luxurious...but...”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2022

Very high spec accomodation and an owner who bends over backwards to make sure you have a comfortable stay. There is however traffic noise from the main road which can be heard in the bedrooms, even with all windows closed. The dog next door barks during the night and early morning, it needs putting down. A few plastic cups for children would also be useful.

Response from the owner Wow! A first to mention a barking dog. We will certainly check who has a dog that barks during the night, etc. but we will not be asking them to, 'put it down...' You have left the premises now but there are plastic cups in the cupboard, the same one that contains the plastic plates. The chapel is situated on a 'B' road but guests have generally not been hindered by the sound of traffic, in fact most have not noticed it, so I am very sorry if it upset you. With regards to the accommodation, we are glad you found it of high spec and that we helped you to have a comfortable stay... Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie
