“Can't wait to go back again!”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is the second time I have been staying with a group of friends at Capel Cartref and it was as amazing as the first time! The spacious chapel easily accommodated the 10 of us and there are enough bathrooms to avoid the dreaded morning queues. It's a unique place with a very spacious lounge and kitchen area, equipped with all the utensils you need, from cheese grater to cafetiere.

This holiday home offers all the home comforts in a fantastic location, perfect for a trip to the beautiful Gower beaches, Dan yr Ogof Caves or walking to one of the many waterfalls. With all fresh air in a peaceful location we all slept like logs.

We certainly can't wait to go back again!

Hi there, thank you so much for your lovely review, such appreciation means an awful lot to us. So glad of the non queueing situation for the bathrooms too! We are very keen to have you visit again, you looked after the chapel so well during your stay. Please come back soon, and let's hope it's still as amazing the third time... kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

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

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
