Overview

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Kidwelly - Chapel Apartments Wales

One Building, Three Apartments, Nine Bedrooms, Sleeps 18, Great For Sharing

Chapel Apartments with its panoramic views of Carmarthen Bay specialises in weekend, and longer holidays for groups of up to 18 plus cots. If you have something to celebrate you should be here!

Chapel Apartments is located midway between the Gower Peninsula, and Tenby overlooking Carmarthen Bay on the edge of the idyllic village of Llansaint with its two traditional welsh pubs, both doing great food.

We are mid way between the historic town of Kidwelly with its magnificent Norman Castel at 1½ miles, and Ferryside with its large golden sand beach, and railway station at 2½ miles. The nearest access to Carmarthen Bay beach is 1.5 miles, and is a beautiful walk. Our local Blue Flag beach which is 8 miles of golden sand is at Pembrey Country Park 5 miles.

The panoramic views of Carmarthen Bay from the elevated hillside position of Llansaint village are simply breath taking. You will be hard pushed to find more exhilarating view’s in the UK.

We are located just 14 miles off junction 48 of the M4, ideal for weekend getaways. About 1¼ hours from Bristol M4/M5

The 17th Century stone chapel with its oak beams, and fabulous 7 feet circular stained glass window project a kaleidoscope of colures into the chapel. The apartments are deceptively large easily accommodating 18 guests to congregate or be seated in any of the three apartments. The Jolly Roger apartment on the first floor has the extra large dinning table which seats 18, and with three fully fitted kitchens to spread the load, catering for 18 is easy, and three washing machines.

Everybody sleeps on a quality full size bed, with deep fill Silent Night mattress. No Bunks, No sofa beds, and No small beds at the chapel, guaranteed.

The garden is accessed by way of the ground floor Admirals Rest apartment which is ideal for the less agile of your group. We do have a large gas barbeque in the garden which is not shown in the photo's.

The chapel is one building with three independent apartments accessed from one entrance into the building, and then independently off a flight of stairs. No steps to gain access to the ground floor Admirals Rest apartment.

We have our comprehensive visitor information area on the second floor together with our DVD library. All apartments have emergency free to use telephones.

Attractions:

The “Wales Coastal Path” runs from Llansaint village across the meadows, through the forest, and over the hills to Ferryside. On the way you will wade through ankle high Blue Bells, Buttercups, Daisies, and a rainbow of wild flowers in April, May June, across winding streams, and ancient steps cut into the hill sides, and along the entire route you will stand in ore of the panoramic views of the Pembrokeshire coast line. A great place for photographers’ with some serious kit.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

.

Staying at a chapel converted into apartments is definitely a unique experience. The question is, is the experience a positive one?

We have now had more than 1,000 guests stay at Chapel Apartments Wales, and I have spoken with many. The overwhelming, and unanimous opinion of these many guests are that the chapel is a massive hit.

Some of the points made are:

Some of us are vegetarians so we had our own kitchen.

The apartments are massive, all 18 of us could sit together in any of the apartments.

The young children were watching dvd’s in one lounge, the older children, used another, and the adults used the ground floor, and had some quality time.

Having our own washing machine was a big advantage.

All 18 of us could eat together with ease.

In the evening retiring to our own apartment earlier or later was a big advantage.

Having an apartment for the babies to sleep in peace was great.

Locking our own apartment was reassuring.

Having our own bathroom was ideal.

Although our group mainly ate together, it was lovely to sit in our own apartment for breakfast or snacks.

Some family’s are more close nit than others, and not everybody wants to be together in one space all the time.

Having our own DAB radio in each apartment made a lovely change from the TV, although the DVD selection was awesome, and very much used.

We couldn’t be bothered to cook so we all had dinner next door. It was so cheap it was like staying at a hotel.

The best holiday we have ever had, we are definitely coming back.

These are just some positive comments made to me by guests who have stayed at Chapel Apartments.

Excellent place to stay.

  • 5 out of 5
We were a party of 15 who were taking part in the Swansea Bay 10k race. We found Chapel apartments were perfect for what we wanted. All 3 apartments were very clean, very spacious and very well modernised. We are a very active group with a wide range of interests and so we found plenty to do what with the excellent coastal cycle routes, walking and other local attractions to visit. The two pubs in the village were fine to eat in providing you prebooked especially being a large group. We would deffinately come back again and would recommend to friends. The owner met us on arrival and departure and was very helpfully and friendly. All in all a great long weekend break for us all.

Wonderful half term break

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful half term break in Chapel Apartments. It made a great base for our extended family. We were able to spread ourselves out over the three floors. Each floor has exactly the same facilities, so no-one felt they got the short straw and we could easily fit into one apartment for evening meals. It was very comfortable, warm and maintained to a high standard.
We spent one day at Pembrey Country Park, beautiful beach and the more adventurous of us tried out the bobsleigh run. We went to the Dinosaur park another day which was good fun for the little ones. The pub next door to the apartments was very friendly.
We had good communications with the owner who made everything very easy.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend Chapel Apartments.

A Christmas To Remember!

  • 5 out of 5
18 of us and three babies stayed at Chapel Apartments Wales over Christmas. We found the apartments enormouse, and the ground floor Admirals Rest apartment easily accommodated all of us for Christmas dinner. It was great to have so much space for us to do our own thing. The kids made full use of the dvd library which gave the adults plenty of quality time together. The chapel was well heated in the day, and at night. Plenty of space for our six cars in the car park. We had a power cut in the storm and the power went off for an hour or so. It was reassuring when the emergency lighting came on, and Gary contacted the power supply company, and kept us informed. Everything came back on as it should do with no problems. Its when something goes wrong you know if your in good hands. We will definitely recomend Chapel Apartments to our friends, and we hope to return soon. Thank you Andrew

Comfortable and to a high standard

  • 5 out of 5
Finished to a high standard, very comfortable beds, good bathrooms. 12 of us stayed here for a wedding in Meidrim and there was plenty of room. The kitchen facilities were good and none of us had any complaints (except for the rain!).

We all said we would return if we were in the area again and it was good value for money.

Carmarthen Bay
Car: recommended

Carmarthenshire is the garden of Wales. It encapsulates some of the best scenery in the UK. We are also blessed with the logest golden sand beaches in the UK. The Brecon Beacons are about 40 minutes drive from Llansaint. The National Botanical Garden of Wales is 25 minutes drive. Closer to home is the market town of Carmarthen which is the oldest town in Wales, and 20 minutes drive. It benefits from its castle ruins in the town centre. It mainly consists of a labyrinth of narrow winding streets, its main theme is old fashioned men’s out fitters, craft and boutique shops, occasionally separated by Café’s bars, and restaurants of which there are many. There are more than 50 licensed pubs and more than 20 restaurants in Carmarthen Town.

One of the main attractions of the area is Pembrey Country Park which houses a dry ski slop and bobsleigh run (COBRA) which the kids love. There is also a miniature railway through the forest. Easy access to our local Blue Flag beach from the park. Pembrey Beach is eight miles long of golden sand with dunes. Pembrey Park is less than 15 minutes drive. Cycling along the Millennium Coastal path is very popular. Its 13 miles of tarmac paths which follows the coast (NO cars). There is a large steam Museum just outside Kidwelly with several old steam trains and large steam engines. Well worth a visit. Pembrey Motor Racing Circuit is also 10 minutes away.

Walking, Cycling, Castle's, Beaches, Horse Riding, and fishing are probably the main theme of the area. Although there are many other interests. You will be surprised at how quiet the beaches and castles are,and little traffic congestion. A great place for poets artistes and readers.

There is a picturesque harbour at Burry Port which is 15 minutes drive. There are numerous massive beaches in this area of Wales including the famous Pendine Sands.

We do have our own comprehensive visitor information area at chapel apartments, and don't forget The massive Norman Castle in Kidwelly in walking distance of Llansaint.

Llansaint is located central to Carmarthen Bay with its numerous top visitor attractions. The Gower Peninsula, and Mumbles are at one end of Carmarthen Bay with Caldey Island and Tenby at the other. When in Tenby take a boat to Caldy Island, and visit the monastery where the monks are making chocolate. You can see these locations from the Chapel.
