  • "A fabulous cottage with great outdoor space for our dogs."

    The owners have thoughtfully planned out the interior with beautiful natural wooden features. Even though the weather was not very good on several days we were happy just to stay in the cottage, the dogs happily stretched out in front of the log fire . Would definitely recommend.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback, welcome back anytime xxx Property Owner

  • "Lovely little cottage with enclosed garden for the dog."

    We met the owner who was a really nice chap and most helpful. It was a pleasure just to light the fire and relax. There is a walkway 50 yards along the road that leads up to the top of the mountain. Fabulous scenery from the summit where you seem to be higher than any of the other mountains. Property was clean and tidy and it was great to see how the owner had renovated it. Well worth the visit.

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. Steve & fiona Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at this gorgeous cottage, the owners have done a fab job renovating it."

    The shower is lovely and hot and the kitchen is ridiculously well equipped. There is an abundance of wood for the fire too which I've never encountered before. There was a bottle of wine and some welsh cakes, along with milk in the fridge which was very thoughtful. Only couple of things I would flag before going (these shouldn't put you off I would just like to know too). Bring slippers, there are no rugs upstairs or downstairs and the floor is a bit uneven, rustic in parts. We have a small dog and even though it mentions the open stairs in the description, I would also mention the top three steps and quite high and tricky to navigate. Also if you have young children or a young dog, the grass outside is kept long and has a lot of sheep poo in it. Which is exactly what you expect in the country, but our lil dog took quite a curiosity to it so we couldn't sit outside much. I would recommend staying in this quaint cottage though and enjoying the beautiful surrounding area!

The property

Llanfyllin 2.9 miles.

Boasting a prime position amidst the beautiful Powys countryside, situated close to the stunning landmarks of Lake Vyrnwy and Wales’ highest waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr, Chapel House is a wonderful detached cottage offering a peaceful escape to this part of Wales.

With two elegantly-appointed bedrooms, large lawn gardens and its action-packed location, this property is perfect for that long-awaited family holiday.

From the outset, the characterful cottage, which rests next to the old redbrick chapel, exudes a sense of charm with the exposed beams complementing the sleek kitchen and contemporary furnishings.

Relax into your evening within the open-plan living room, where two leather sofas are positioned in front of an exposed brick and stone fireplace, home to a woodburning stove and the fantastic Smart TV.

Light up the fire to allow a gentle warmth to fill the room before heading into the sage-green fitted kitchen, containing a good range of quality appliances, which is certain to tempt you into a spot of home-cooking.

Enjoy your meals at the quirky oak-built breakfast bar, where a glass of wine or two can be enjoyed as you toast to a wonderful holiday in Wales.

Concluding the ground floor is the family shower room, boasting a large walk-in shower, basin and WC.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the characterful open tread staircase to find two light-filled bedrooms, each enjoying plush linens, storage space and traditional beams, choose between the double bedroom and the twin bedroom, offering an ideal set up for a family of four.

To the exterior the cottage benefits from a large lawn area, where your canine companions and younger guests of the group can look forward to playing during the summer months, as you admire the stunning surroundings and the soundtrack of the nearby running brook.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic spot, head into the town of Llanfyllin, which is nestled deep in the Cain Valley and plays host to a number of places to pick up the essentials and alternative places to eat and drink.

Alternatively, take a scenic drive to the larger town of Welshpool, where you will find a larger selection of amenities, accompanied by a stunning castle.

From here, be sure to spend time exploring the beauty of Lake Vyrnwy, boasting opportunities for walking, cycling, bird watching and boating before heading to the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Restaurant for a delicious cream tea, whilst overlooking the lake.

Guests of Hen Capel Ty can also venture to Pistyll Rhaeadr in Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant to discover the enchanting waterfall before hiking upon the dramatic Berwyn Mountains.

Other attractions within the area includes the Welshpool & Llanfair Railway, Shropshire Sculpture Park or travel slightly further to visit the National Trust owned Chirk Castle.

Chapel House promises to be a tranquil place to call home as you explore this part of Wales with your loved ones.
