**N.B New Year Price based on 4 please get in touch**. An entire quirky converted Baptist Chapel in the Brecon Beacons National Park with a secret musical story and lots of sleeping options. Warm in winter with thick stone walls that are so calming and quiet. This is a simple place to detox from busy lives. Cosy nights in front of the wood burner with friends or family. A place to read, play the piano, listen to music, sing, cook or just do nothing. Cycling, walking, from the door.
Parking Note : There is space for two small cars or one larger one outside the Chapel although our preference is for one. There is potential to accommodate other cars but please let us know if you have more than one vehicle.
Please note that the mezzanine space is accessed by a spiral staircase with no handrail. We therefore advise that it is used by adults or children over 8 at parents discretion. Use of the mezzanine is at guests own risk.
The two single beds are folding beds that can be put anywhere in the Chapel. One of them is a full single bed size and very suitable for an adult. The other is narrower typical folding bed size and slightly shorter more suitable for a smaller lighter person child or teenager although I have had a few comfy nights on it. Unfortunately there is no description for folding bed and these are much more comfortable than a floor mattress. The beds can be moved around quite easily to suit your circumstances.
We now also have a Sofa Bed on the Mezzanine which is very comfortable and is a standard double bed width. So there are quite a few sleeping options. There are several areas within the common space - The mezzanine, The pulpit landing area and even within the main area there are corners that work quite nicely for the beds with some privacy without impacting on the main sitting, cooking, eating areas.
The bathroom which is a shower and toilet is small but adequate.
The Wifi is a mobile wifi which is 10x faster than our telephone line broadband which is still in the dark ages. However I just couldn't find an unlimited use package so there's not enough to be constantly gaming or streaming films. It's there for Internet browsing, email, remote working, music and occasional film. Remember to switch wifi off your device when not in use and switch up background App updating as its surprising how much they use up updating themselves in the background.
We just expect the property to be respected as it was your own home. We do have a strict no smoking policy in the Chapel. Lastly it is really important to ensure small black gate next to large five bar gate is kept closed at all times to stop sheep getting in and eating neighbours veggies.
We first moved to this part of Wales in 2000 when I stumbled on Clydach exploring the lanes on my way back from work. I was instantly attracted to the hills, woods and streams as well as the forgotten past of ironworks quarries and tramroads. It was the place I would have loved to live in as a child.
We live down the hill from the Chapel in a house we built. Bernadette and our two boys, a westhighland terrier, two cats and 8 retired hens.
When we have spare time we love being out on our bikes, walking up the sugarloaf or going for the day to one of the many beaches on the Gower Peninsula which is just over an hours journey.
