“Wonderful- highly recommended!”
We absolutely loved our stay at Ty Capel, it far exceeded our expectations. The cottage was beautifully and sympathetically renovated with loads of character, and we found it comfortable, roomy and really well equipped. We cooked a full roast dinner one afternoon and found everything we could possibly want in the kitchen. The dishwasher came in handy for the cleanup too! ...
We absolutely loved our stay at Ty Capel, it far exceeded our expectations. The cottage was beautifully and sympathetically renovated with loads of character, and we found it comfortable, roomy and really well equipped. We cooked a full roast dinner one afternoon and found everything we could possibly want in the kitchen. The dishwasher came in handy for the cleanup too! We were delighted to find a bottle of wine and some delicious home baked muffins on a tea tray on our arrival - such a lovely welcoming touch and it made us feel like wanted guests rather than merely paying customers. Our pup was also well catered for with dog biscuits on arrival, as well as bowls and some folded towels by the bowls to dry him off. There was wood for the fire, which we took advantage of in the evenings, and best of all was the loveliest peace and quiet at the end of the lane with a fantastic view across to a craggy hill, with sheep grazing by the slate fence. The enclosed garden was wonderful for our pup to run around in safely (and away from the sheep!), and we sat and drank coffee and tea in the morning sunshine at the garden table. We just loved everything about it! Our stay was filled with long walks, beach strolls, long lazy baths and great food, and the cottage was a fantastic base to return to in the evenings where we felt comfortable and relaxed. Ty Capel was perfectly placed for all the things we wanted to do on our trip, visits to Beddgelert - to walk the Cwm Bychan and Aberglaslyn Pass Walk, visit Gelerts grave, have some lunch and do some shopping- a trip to Porthmadog to stock up on groceries on the way to the beach, a visit to Inigo Jones Slateworks, the lovely dog friendly beach at Cricceth and lunch of the best fish and chips ever, washed down with lovely Welsh Ale, at Moorings Bistro in Porth-y-Guest. We were quite curious about the Chapel itself, which we had read about in the folder left on the coffee table and packed with information about the area and the property. We had the luck to meet Sarah at the end of our stay as we were leaving - she was just lovely and offered to satisfy our curiosity and show us inside the Chapel. Her passion for renovating the property and for the area shone through in our conversation, and their vision for the chapel renovation sounds amazing, we can't wait to see it finished! We have already decided we want to come back in winter and stay at the cottage in the snow. Everything was perfect for us and Sarah so welcoming and friendly that we will definetely be back to stay on our next visit to Wales.
