"Fantastic Accommodation - Perfect for 2 families!"
We stayed here with another family and their 2 dogs (9 people in total) and we had more than enough space for everyone. The accommodation is beautifully decorated, very clean with everything that you could possibly need for a self catering break. We loved the location (small village) as it was only 20 mins drive from Swansea and therefore close to the stunning Rhossili Bay and lots of other beaches. Also very close to the Dan-yr-Ogof caves which are a must especially if you have children with you. All communication with the owner Marnie was excellent and we had no problems at all with our booking or with our stay. Highly recommend the accommodation and the location if you wish to explore a bit of South Wales.
Thank you for such a thorough review. The website does not reflect the true size of the chapel, so we felt quite sure all 9 of you would have plenty of space but we are glad that the dogs were happy too! The surrounding area is really quite spectacular and so I'm glad you got to explore it. Thank YOU for looking after the chapel, it means a lot to us. Please come back again one day. Take care and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Don't hesitate to stay here, it's perfection!"
We spent 2 weeks here and loved every second. The place is an incredible blend of old and new- modern finishing that respects the original building and though spacious seems really cosy. The top back bedroom was a particular favourite as it comes with a balcony! The view of the river is beautiful!! All in all this place was more than we could have hoped for and the 7 of us who stayed are already planning another visit!
Thank you for your prompt review! Great feedback, thank you so much. Glad the two weeks went well and that you got to enjoy the space of Capel Cartref. Looking forward to you returning some time in the future. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie
