Holiday Rental House
Capel Cartref is a newly renovated chapel offering a unique and luxurious space for holidaymakers. The chapel provides a warm and welcoming haven. The gallery hosts a vaulted ceiling with original beams. Pews have been reclaimed and used around the chapel as window sills, kitchen cornices and window shutters. The chapel has been finished to a very high specification with all of the comforts of home. Breakfast and dining can be held in the spacious modern kitchen or on the decked veranda which overlooks the trout filled River Twrch - maybe catch your supper but look out for the herons! Capel Cartref suits people who wish to walk, sightsee, (Brecon, numerous waterfalls, the beachers of The Gower and Swansea Bay, Black Mountains, Afan Park) cycle, fish, play golf, pony trek or just kick ...Capel Cartref is a newly renovated chapel offering a unique and luxurious space for holidaymakers.

Getting around
Ideally, guests will have a car in order to make travelling easier. There is a train station in Neath and Swansea but the bus runs only once daily to Neath from Cwmtwrch and so a taxi would most likely be necessary. Most of the places to visit are over a 15 minute drive away. If people want to walk, there are local walks but the best views and experiences, i.e. for waterfalls, rocks, etc. are a further distance away and so require a vehicle. Motorbiking is great in South Wales as lots of the roads covering the Black Mountains and Brecon are unhindered by traffic lights etc.
