|Further details indoors|
Old Trinity Church retains many features from its previous life, but the house feels like a family home and has all the mod cons you would expect. You can sit in front of the wood burning stove with a glass of wine while the kids play on the full size table football table, or perhaps you play on the table, while the kids watch their favourite program on TV!
For those special family dinners, there is a second dining table that can seat 12 so no-one has to miss out on the celebrations.
|Further details outdoors|
A large flat lawn fronts the property and behind is a small padock, ideal for dogs to stretch their legs while you take your time over breakfast.
One double bedroom and shower room located downstairs with 2 steps between them.
The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
The River Wye was once the industrial highway to this area, giving way to the steam train.
There are many walks to be taken on the gently gradient of the former railway tracks or you could venture a little further to the Brecon Beacons.
The Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke also start within walking distance from the village.
The village of Whitebrook was once a thriving paper mill industry. Now a tranquil village with plenty of old ruins set aside the brook to remind you of its past, not forgetting Old Trinity Church itself, which served not only as a church but as a school.
From here you can join Offa's Dyke or the Wye Valley Walk. Why not visit one of the historic sites such as Tintern Abbey or Chepstow Castle.
For the more adventurous, head over to the Forest of Dean and try 'Go Ape'

"A great Christmas!"
We stayed in the Church over Christmas and had a brilliant week.
The church is full of character but has everything you could need to make a home from home.
We felt comfortable as soon as we arrived.
The surrounding area is beautiful and there is great walking to be had from the door.
I would highly recommend this holiday let.

We take on board all the comments of this guest and have taken action where required.
When we took ownership of the property, it was in a poor state of repair and the roof had been leaking badly. The screen sustained some damage during this time. As a grade 2 listed building, and the screen specifically mentioned, we are unable to undertake any DIY restoration and are seeking advise on how this should be done. The screen is dusted and cleaned on a regular basis, as is the whole property.
Unfortunately we were not made aware of any specific requirements for the elderly guest. An access statement is now available upon request.
The week this guest stayed saw the whole months rainfall in just 24hours. It was unfortunate that this caused a degradation to the drive and path but this was rectified immediately after we were made aware of the problem.
Adding to the bad luck, there was a problem with the heating that started when this guest arrived. We had the system serviced and a number of parts were renewed and is now running as it should. This could not be repaired during the guests stay, as we were again only made aware of the noise during an email on day of departure.
We have also had an additional 12KW wood burning stove installed in the main area of the building that is able to supplement sudden changes in temperature as the underfloor heating does take longer than conventional radiators to adjust to large changes in outside temperature.
We are sorry this guest had some problems during their stay. Those matters that we have control over have been fully addressed.

"What a wonderful week"
We found out about Old Trinity Church on the internet when looking for something that was a bit less ordinary than a classic cottage. There was a lot of information on the website, and we learned everything else when exchanging e-mails with the owners. Finding it with the satnav was no problem (using the postal code), and when we walked in we were really impressed. It looks just like on the photos and feels very special. The church has been lovingly converted, some of the old structure has been kept (especially in the formal dining area) but there are also very modern elements. Kitchen and bathrooms are very modern, the lounge area was very comfortable and has lots of board games (we didn´t have enough time to play them all... and then there was table football, too), the beds were comfortable. We were very happy that bed linens and towels were provided.
The church has a bit of a garden, and as the weather was great during our stay we were outside quite a bit as well. There is a very good restaurant within walking distance (the Crown at Whitebrook), we also hiked along the Wye Valley to Brockweir to experience the famous village shop (came back along Offa´s Dyke). Walking in the area is very pleasant, you can also go to Monmouth to do some shopping or have a coffee. If you have more time, Hay-on-Wye isn´t too far away, either. There are many brochures in the house, so you will not run out of ideas!
As we were there in July I do not know about the winter but I imagine it must be very cozy, with the underfloor heating providing warmth and the fireplace adding to the atmosphere!

"Amazing building and location"
We booked the church as we knew the weather was due to be bad and wanted a nice place to be out of the rain. It both lived up to and surpassed our expectations. The building is amazing, somewhere with… More
