Chapel Apartments is ideal for family's and friends to get together for a group pilgrimage or to celebrate a special event. We specialise in weekends and longer holidays for groups of 10 to 18. The apartments are beautifully furnished, and designed. They are so large that 18 guests can dine in any of the three apartments with ease. Each apartment sleeps 6 in full size sprung beds with Silent Night mattresses. There are no more than 2 guests to any bedroom. A goodnight sleep is essential whether your staying for a weekend or longer.

We are 14 miles off Junction 48 of the M4 motorway making getting hear a breeze, especially for weekends. We are located (CENTRE) of Carmarthen Bay.

The ground floor, Admirals Rest apartment with its welsh slate floor is ideal for the less agile as there are no stairs or steps (access ramp to main door of chapel).

The garden is fully enclosed and safe. There is plenty of seating for your group to eat al fresco or sample some local beverages under the stars (Garden lighting). The village park is a few minuets away, ideal for all ball games.

The apartments are arranged on top of each other with stairs as access. Ground floor: Admirals Rest,

First Floor: Jolly Roger (with extra large dining table seats 18), Second Floor: The Lookout (with sea views)

The bedrooms, and layout are the same in all three apartments. The master bedroom with King size bed. The second bedroom with two full size single beds. The open plan area with two full size single Day beds. All beds are full size, and have Silent Night mattresses. There are 12 single beds, and 3 King size beds in the building.

On the second floor we have our visitor information area, and DVD library along with our beautiful seven feet circular stained glass window. A big hit with the children.

Three fully equipped kitchens including 3 washing machines etc, makes life easy when cooking for large numbers. We have a full set of pots & pans, including large sauce pans, and sauté pans all with lids (catering quality) in all three apartments. Dealing with laundry especially with children is a lot easier in your own apartment.

Car Park: Our car park will accommodate small buses, and six cars. If you are using more vehicles please enquire.

The Price we give you includes central heating in all three apartments, bedding & linen, hot water, electricity, bath and hand towels, soap & toilet rolls, washing up products and tea towels, Wi-Fi, parking, and free use of the DVD library.

LOCAL: The chapel is located centre of Carmarthen Bay in a small village above the historic town of Kidwelly with its magnificent Norman Castle. The panoramic views from the village of Carmarthen Bay are breathtaking. The village is surrounded by pasture fields on all sides. There are two traditional pubs in the village both doing great food.

The very large village park with its sea views of Carmarthen Bay which is little used is a few minuets walk from the chapel, and is safe for all children.

NEAREST TOWN: Kidwelly (1.5 miles)

Kidwelly is a small town best known for its massive Norman Castel, and wild life sanctuary at Kidwelly Quay. The town has a selection of small shops & takeaway food outlets, and a Co Op. Large supper markets can be found in the main towns of Carmarthen 9 miles, or Llanelli 9 miles. Some cafés and pubs most doing good food.

ATTRACTIONS: Carmarthen Bay hosts some of Wales top visitor attractions with The Gower in the South of Carmarthen Bay and Tenby in the far West of Carmarthen Bay. I will mention some attractions local to Chapel Apartments all within 15 minutes drive. Pembrey Country Park which includes access to our local Blue Flag beach which is 8 miles long of golden sand. The park also includes a full size dry ski slope, Bobsleigh Run (COBRA), restaurant, toilets, café, horse riding & trekking on the beach and through Pembrey Forest. Miniature Railway through the forest. Crazy Golf, great walks, and miles of sand dunes. Burry Port Harbour is next door with its lighthouse, and great golden sand beaches. Burry Port is the start of the Millennium Coastal Path. The tarmac section runs for 13 miles past lakes, beaches, landscaped gardens, and monuments. Great for walkers and cyclists (no cars).You can hire bikes from Burry Port (details on our website). Pembrey Motor Racing circuit. Ffos Las Racecourse, Glyn Abby golf Club 10 mins, and Ashburnham Golf Club 15 mins.

The market town of Carmarthen 20 minuets drive from the chapel is the oldest town in Wales with its castle ruins in the town centre. The medieval town is steeped in history, and at one point was the Capital of Wales. The town mainly consists of a labyrinth of narrow winding streets with many boutique, and men's outfitter. All the big names in shopping including a multi screen cinema are in Carmarthen. Plenty of restaurants, and bars also. Also in Carmarthen is the Botanic Garden of Wales, and Gwili Steam Railway. We do have a comprehensive visitor information area at Chapel Apartments including maps which will help fill the gaps. It is well worth looking at the Chapel Apartments website for more information. Also you can phone or email me if you have any questions. My name is Gary and you can phone me between 9am and 10pm seven days a week.

We are all looking forward to greeting you, and hope to see you soon.


Some Uniqe Qualities, and Guest Comments:

Staying at a chapel converted into apartments is definitely a unique experience. The question is, is the experience a positive one?

We have now had more than 800 guests stay at Chapel Apartments Wales, and I have spoken with many. The overwhelming, and unanimous opinion of these many guests are that the chapel is a massive hit.

Some of the points made are:

Some of us are vegetarians so we had our own kitchen.

The apartments are massive, all 18 of us could sit together in any of the apartments.

The young children were watching dvd's in one lounge, the older children, used another, and the adults used the ground floor, and had some quality time.

Having our own washing machine in our apartment was a big advantage.

All 18 of us could eat together with ease.

In the evening retiring to our own apartment earlier or later was a big advantage.

Having an apartment for the babies to sleep in peace was great.

Locking our own apartment was reassuring.

Having our own bathroom was ideal.

Although our group mainly ate together, it was lovely to sit in our own apartment for breakfast or snacks.

Some family's are more close nit than others, and not everybody wants to be together in one space all the time.

We couldn't be bothered to cook so we all had dinner next door. It was so cheap it was like staying at a hotel.

The best holiday we have ever had, we are definitely coming back.

These are just some positive comments made to me by guests who have stayed at Chapel Apartments.

"Lovely, comfortable and well priced"

12 of us stayed here for a friends wedding in Meidrim. It was very comfortable, and there was plenty of space. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen facilities were great. It is a quiet area and we all had a peaceful time. I would recommend this place are we would all stay again.

"Chapel Apartments is an excellent place for a family holiday."

A lovely, clean, spacious, well equipped place for a fantastic family holiday. The apartments had everything we needed for a lovely comfortable stay. The DVD collection was much used by the children. The information library was very useful to us all. The apartments were big enough for us all to get together with the opportunity to spend some quiet time in the separate apartments.
Chapel Apartments is in a very quiet village with a remarkably quiet pub next door. There is a park close by for the children. We couldn't have asked for more from a holiday accommodation.
I loved the home from home comfort, the warm welcome we were given and the choices that the three apartments allowed us.
