Carmarthenshire is a truly beautiful region of south Wales, which has been kept secret from the tourist crowds until now.

There are far to many footpaths, cycle ways and bridle paths than you could possibly explore from a single trip to a Carmarthenshire rental car. If you are looking to rent Carmarthenshire accommodation for a walking, mountain biking or horse riding holiday a Carmarthenshire holiday rental anywhere along the coastline or in the Brecon Beacons will be ideal.

It's set in a beautiful location with amazing views! The Chapel itself is wonderfully equipped with everything you could need for both practical and enjoyable activity. We had 2 teenagers and younger child, ourselves and grandad and the Chapel suited us all. I found that my phone and 4G worked in patches (ee), but it wasn't needed and we made the most of the games, puzzles and telescopes! We paid extra for our beds to be made upon arrival and they were lovely and comfortable. We found many wonderful local places to eat and a very good fish and chips takeaway in Kidwelly. You do need a car, unless you're a very keen walker. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay at the Chapel!

Very easy to book (even for me, that struggles to navigate my way around on the computer) George the owner answered my queries and told me my prefered date was available and gave me a price which I thought was very reasonable, especially as it was during the Easter break. Hot tub in the garden as well. 3 bedrooms and two reception rooms and a fully fitted kitchen plus bathroom and a downstairs toilet. 3 minutes walk from the Black Lion which is fantastic for food. Lovely walking area and a lovely time had by all. Thanks to George for a fantastic break.
