Capel Pentwyn

A late Victorian chapel in the Arts & Crafts style. Converted in 2005 to a luxury 3-bedroom self-catering holiday house that sleeps 5/6

A warm welcome awaits you at our luxurious 5 Star (Visit Wales) holiday/business self catering property. Built in 1869 at the height of the Arts and Crafts period Capel Pentwyn has been converted by local architects to reflect the style of that period. Externally, little has been changed except for a simple garden and a large terrace giving panoramic views over the valley and to the nearby Forest of Dean. For a larger group, you can rent the adjacent Old School that used to be attached to the chapel.

Ros personally greets all guests on arrival and explains where everything is and how it works and provides advice on local amenities. There are fresh flowers and a welcoming pot of tea and welsh cakes to help you get settled in and we can provide a luxury breakfast hamper if you have a late arrival.

Internally, an entrance lobby soars to the high rafters and a gallery from the first floor overlooks the entrance. The apse, with wonderful stained glass windows forms an elegant dining room with the original Victorian tiles reset in an oak floor that covers the whole ground area. The large lounge area has oriental rugs and period tapestries and an antique woodburning stove of the period imported from Norway and resting on a hearth created by a local sculptor from Forest of Dean stone.

The open plan oak kitchen although traditional in style has all the necessities of luxury living as do the bedrooms and bathrooms. TVs, telephones and free WiFi are available in the property and a fully equipped utility room is there for those who need to do a bit of washing and ironing. It is really comfortable accommodation for 5/6 people.

The building has been designed with attention to the needs of those who may have disabilities and there is a downstairs single study bedroom and a 'wheel-in' shower and bathroom. The whole ground floor and garden is wheelchair friendly.

As with the Old School, we are keen to maintain our 'Green' credentials and have been very careful to ensure that we meet the highest environmental standards both inside and out.

There is a garden with hard standing for 3 cars, but for those who want to put their car under cover or a lockup for their cycles; there is access to these in the adjoining Old School property.

What you need to bring - Basically nothing but food and drink. All bed linen and towels are provided together with 2 colour televisions, 3 portable colour televisions and a VCR. The fully fitted kitchen is equipped with a ceramic hob, a fan assisted oven, a microwave, a freezer/fridge, washing machine, dryer and dishwasher.
