“Wonderful Easter break”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We spent three nights at the Chapel and had a wonderful time. There were 11 of us but the cottage was still spacious with enough room for everyone to relax. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with a lovely big dining table - perfect for doing a big roast dinner. The lounge area with its double height ceilings is fantastic, and the whole place is extremely well taken care of. It is in a great location for both the Brecons and the beach - we were lucky with the weather and had a fantastic time at Three Cliffs bay and Rhossili Bay. The owner was extremely helpful over email before and during our stay, very happy to answer any questions and extremely accommodating. There is a tesco and Asda nearby which is very handy - we did a big online shop and had it delivered which worked fine. A wonderful stay in a unique cottage.

Hello there. Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are glad you had good enough weather to visit The Gower (Three Cliffs Bay, etc); the views are truly breathtaking. Also pleased that eleven people did not make the chapel feel too crowded, it is larger than it appears on the website for sure. Thank you for looking after Capel Cartref during your visit. Hopefully, you will come back and fill it with your walking friends again soon... Take care and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

Hi there. Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are so glad you all had a good time at the chapel. Children seem to love it there and we are very glad that your children did too; it's probably a bit of an adventure for them. We are very grateful to have a great location for visiting places such as Brecon and Rhosilli and we are especially grateful to you and your family for looking after Capel Cartref during your stay. Thank you so much, we hope you will one day, come back. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

Hello and thank you! A useful review with the recommendations, with regards especially to the local eateries. We are so glad that the chapel is 'up there with the best!' - the local 'hands-on' people deserve the credit for it's upkeep... we are very lucky to have such a team. Thank you for using the hose and for also leaving the chapel in a nice clean state. Please come back sometime soon. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at the capel for a friends 50th birthday. The capel was clean, well equipped, gorgeous inside we could not have asked for a better place to celebrate our friends 50th birthday. The card and the cava left by the owners was a beautiful touch.
