"A perfect place to stay with friends and family"
Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Plenty of room for the nine of us and with three bathrooms there was no queuing! Very well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels supplied and loads of extra blankets although these were not needed as the chapel is lovely and warm. The chapel is beautifully restored and has such a homely feel about it. I was feeling a little anxious as I was responsible for booking the chapel for friends but the reaction when they arrived and looked around was great. None of us wanted to leave! We will all be coming back again and have recommended the chapel to so many friends and family.
Wow! Thank you so much for such positive feedback. Thank you also for looking after the chapel so well. Please, come back! We are chuffed that you chose Capel Cartref and that your friends and family were happy with your choice. Thank you and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Wonderful experience in a gorgeous chapel."
Fabulous location. Lots of walks, golf, scenery, pubs, history and even the famous healing waters right near the chapel. It was a birthday celebration and Marnie laid on a welcome birthday pack that was a great surprise. Very comfortable and spacious chapel suitable for large groups and small.

"The perfect place to stay with your family"
We had the pleasure in staying at the Capel Cartref, the accommodation was very well equipt, clean and up to a high standard with everything you could possible require. We went to Wales to celebrate my dad's 60th with all the family including dog and baby, it was the perfect place to stay everyone settled in well. We made good use of the kitchen facilities cooking most nights and had lovely evenings. The location itself was excellent near some really lovely visitor attractions - Brecon Beacons and Gower to name a couple. All supermarkets a couple moments drive and handy shop next door! Would love to visit in the summer and make use of the bbq's and garden.
Hello and thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so glad you had a good time, and especially glad your dad enjoyed his 60th birthday celebration at Capel Cartref. Yes, do come back during the summer and use the bbq and utilise the decking and garden whilst the weather's warm! Thank you also for looking after the chapel during your stay. Best wishes, Yonni and Marnie

"old friends reunion"
The chapel was a fantastic holiday home which was comfortable clean and modern. The kitchen had everything you could need for self catering, spacious living room. The owner Marnie also text to make sure everything was ok on our arrival as they are not local and was great at communicating directions etc.. via email. We were a group of old friends meeting up for a 20 year friendship reunion and would all def stay there again
Hello and 'thank you'. So glad you managed to all finally reunite after so long! Really happy that the chapel provided you the space and comfort required for such an occasion. We hope you do come back in the near future. Thank you for looking after the chapel during your visit. Take care and kind regards, Yonni and Marnie
