  • "So very well presented, even down to the cake!"

    ---very comfortable with everything that you need and everything works well--except perhaps the usual Welsh valley internet connection--but we managed well enough and kept in touch--modern times!!!

  • "We have just returned from a peaceful, week at Ty Chapel."

    ADEQUATE is the word I would use to describe this property. It was clean. It had all the basics equipment you need to cook and eat. (dont expect lots of extras.) Considering it is three ticks and reasonably priced, I think it meets the standard advertised. You need a car and good driving skills to get around, Being a farming area there are a lot of narrow single track by-ways with small passing places. The trees either side of the lane often touched the wing mirrors. You need to be a confident driver. We would recommend you visit Lake Vyrnwy, drive from Lake Vyrnwy to Bala (only on a good weather day). Visit the waterfall near lake Vyrnwy and the one sign posted from the nearest village to Ty Chapel. Also recommend National Trust Houses Powys Castle, Chirk Castle and Erdigg. N.B. TV reception cannot be relied on - no ones fault just due to the area.

  • "Nice cottage with spacious hall for coats and shoes."

    It would have been useful to have had a wardrobe to put our clothes away in rather than hang them on the back of the door.

  • "Very nice cottage - really enjoyed the fireplace in the lounge and the guest Netflix account."

    We really missed not having a washing machine/drier and the kitchen could have had more utensils (e.g. scissors, pealer, serving spoons). But we made do, and really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, quiet and no-street-lights location.

  • "Ty Capel is a beautiful little property."

    It was so tranquil and peaceful with a lovely view from the kitchen window. It was well stocked and had everything we needed. The only problem we had was working out which dial on the hob controlled which part as there were no markings on them but after a bit of trial and error we worked it out. The beds were really comfy and due to the thick walls we were comfy at night during temperatures of 30+ during the day. We made use of the walks that we found in the information pack and we also walked in to llanraeadr ym mochnant (there are heavy farm vehicles around so on walks be prepared to squeeze into hedges). We found a farm close by that sold fresh eggs (turn right and right again and the first two farms you come to sell them). There is also a nice little outside area behind the car parking spaces that you can sit. We made use of the provided guest netflix account and also took our own card games. Would definitely recommend a stay here

  • "We had a lovely relaxing holiday here, very quiet and peaceful."

    Everything was fine aside from the lack of a normal television (internet based so only BBC iPlayer was available for live TV the rest was catch up). Wifi was good. We decided to travel a lot as the weather was good and we saw Wales at its best. The cottage was immaculately clean. Perhaps a small freezer would be useful and allowing a dog All in all great, very rural and peaceful away from the hustle and bustle.

The property

Settled within the delightful rural outskirts of Llanrhaeadr-Ym-Mochnant is this charming former chapel, Ty Capel.

Nowadays offering a family of four a chance to enjoy the delights of mid-Wales, this detached cottage is within reach of a host of attractions like watersports at Lake Vyrnwy and the glorious Chirk Castle and grounds.

Head inside the warmth of this stone-built dwelling and come to the boot room, where a church pew echoing the history of the property awaits you to perch on while you take off your boots from a refreshing walk.

Discover the bathroom leading off from here too, offering a lovely space to freshen up with a bath and a shower over.

Come through the traditional wooden door into the open-plan living and dining room, notice the sweet floral settee and contemporary cream sofas providing somewhere tranquil to settle down on a quiet evening before the wall-mounted TV.

Light the woodburning stove before gathering at the dining table for your evening meal, discuss your plans for your trip over some wine or get out a board game brought from home for some family fun with the children after you've eaten.

A simple and bright kitchen houses a host of appliances including an electric oven and hob, a microwave, and a fridge, whilst a dishwasher offers an easy clean up!

Enjoy preparing dinner, then head outside while it simmers to the rear of the property where a delightful table and chairs await you to relax with some nibbles and drinks.

Discover two wonderful bedrooms with a mix of some modern and some classic style furnishings, the first room being a double with a blue theme, whilst the twin room enjoys pretty pink bed spreads.

For a lovely day out nearby discover the breath-taking waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr, a 240-foot mountain waterfall, access it by a scenic woodland footpath and afterwards delight in some tea and cake in the quaint tea rooms.

The fabulous medieval and extremely grand Chirk Castle, run by the National Trust, is a great place to explore with 18th century apartments and rooms with suits of armour, as well as beautifully kept gardens within the grounds to roam.

For a day of adventures travel down to the idyllic Lake Vyrnwy where an amazing selection of activities await you; try out some watersports like kayaking or canoeing, shoot for the bulls-eye during some archery, or hire a bike from Artisans Cycle Hire near to the dam and take it easy as you take in the scenery too of this amazing setting.

Sample some delicious food and drink in one of the many cafés and restaurants in the market town of Oswestry, explore the independent shops as well as weekly indoor and outdoor markets for some treasured souvenirs, and learn of the local history by visiting the Cambrian Railway Museum or the Oswestry Town Museum.

For a wealth of adventure and a homely base to return to, enjoy a Welsh break at Ty Capel.
