"Girls weekend away"
Absolutely love this place and highly recommended . Myself and my work colleagues enjoy a lovely weekend break here and the Chapel is so homely and cosy. Lovely local pubs which serve beautiful meals and even the local rugby club is so welcoming. Post Office next door is very handy but there are local shops like Tesco's just down the road too. Close to Swansea, Carmathan and Tenby . Capel Cartref is just perfect and the owners are so lovely and accommodating . Plenty of bathroom and showers faculties and the whole design of the Chapel has been well thought out. Everything you need is there and we just have such a relaxed time there . So will be booking to return next year.
Hi to you all! It was great having you return to Capel Cartref and we are looking forward to you coming back next year. Thank you for your lovely comments regarding the chapel. The location is rather handy, never a shop too far away and the beautiful sights are only a short car journey. Thank you so much for caring for the chapel during your stay; you are clearly conscientious people. Looking forward to your return, Yonni and Marnie

"Unique accomodation in old chapel"
We booked Capel Cartref for a family celebration of my Mum's 90th birthday. Marnie provided lots of helpful information in advance and we were all impressed with the high quality of the accommodation and facilities. The chapel is conveniently located for hiking and cycling in the Brecon Beacons National Park as well as visiting Swansea, Mumbles and The Gower. We had a good celebration lunch at The George which is a mile up the road.
Hello and thank you! So glad to hear that your mum had a comfortable weekend to celebrate her birthday. Thank you for looking after the chapel during your stay. Yes, we've had good feedback regarding The George and, of course, the local attractions. Despite the Gower being a drive away, we feel it is still worth the 30/40 min journey to catch the splendour of it. We look forward to you coming back next year, (if that remains a plan), and thank you once again for your positive feedback. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Really Fun vacation"
The property is situated within a driving distance to the great beaches, and some great walks - I would particularly recommend the waterfall walk which consists of the three different waterfalls to be found, and is great for photographers. The house itself was clean with good size rooms and an amazing kitchen - there was 8 in total and we all had enough space. An Asda and Tesco is close by so its easy to pick up bits through out your stay. There are also two lovely pubs, we only really tried one which had nice food. I am not sure I saw enough of Wales as there is so much to do so I feel we may have to go back and I certainly will be recommending the chapel to friends and family if not staying there again.
Hello and thank you so much for your review! We are glad you enjoyed exploring Wales and that you found the three waterfalls; there is more to Wales than a lot of people realise! Henrhyd Falls, is the largest waterfall in South Wales, could this be the one you visited? Tredegar Arms and George Inn are now the two local pubs, both of which have had great feedback of late. We are really pleased also to hear that you found the chapel spacious and clean. If you return to Wales, please consider staying with us again as we would love to have you back. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Great house for a celebration"
This well-equipped, beautifully restored chapel was perfect for a gathering of friends. Plenty of space, indoors and outdoors and near some stunning walks. Would definitely recommend it and book again
Hi there and thank you so much for your review, you are so efficient! There's quite a lot to pack into a weekend when you include seeing the sights and we are really glad you managed get out to some of them. Thank you for the positive feed back and for mentioning that you would definitely book again AND for looking after the chapel during your stay. Take care and come back soon. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Lovely stay in this converted chapel"
We had a brilliant time at Capel Cartref. The chapel is beautiful and easily large enough for 10 adults.
Hi there and thank you for your prompt response. We are very glad you had a 'brilliant time' and that the chapel was 'easily large enough for 10 adults'. Thank you so much for that feedback. Please come back one day in the future. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"A spacious conversion with all the comforts of home."
The property is well equipped, the sofas are comfy and easily seated all 10 of us. Unfortunately the dining table didn't seat us all although there are stools at the nearby breakfast bar. We had occasion to put the heating on even though we visited in May, and the whole place soon became very warm, obviously a very efficient system which also provided endless hot water. The kitchen contains two kettles and two toasters, great when there's a lot of you. The immediate area is not especially pretty but you don't need to go far to find the usual stunning Welsh landscape. The local folk were extremely friendly and stopped to chat to us when we were in the garden. Booking the property was easy, Marnie, the owner was prompt and friendly, seeming to genuinely care about our visit to the Chapel. All in all a holiday enjoyed by our whole family.
Hi Alison, thank you for the prompt review. Very informative. Yes, the table seats 8 unless the dining chairs from the table in the lounge are swapped out for the larger chairs; I should have advised you of that, it makes it a bit more spacious. Glad all else went well and that you got to see lots of beautiful sights and that other aspects of the chapel were satisfying enough. Thank you for looking after the chapel and dealing with the recycling etc. We hope you return one day in the future. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"Didn't want to leave!"
Thoroughly enjoyed our time staying here, none of us wanted to leave! Such a beautiful location and has been renovated so well, so much to do and lovely places to eat! Will definitely be booking again!
Hi Leah, Thank you so much for your swift review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the chapel and that you found lots to do and good places to eat. There seems to be lots to explore out there! Thank you so much for looking after the chapel during your stay. We hope you come back again soon. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

"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

Wonderful clean, spacious accommodation. Well equipped kitchen. Everything we needed for a great week with all the family. Enjoyed eating BBQs at the picnic tables outside in the sunshine.
Thank you for the 'Brilliant' review! So glad you got to stay there and enjoy it and for also looking after it during your holiday. Take care and kind regards. Hopefully we will see you again, Yonni and Marnie
