Capel Seion is situated in the heart of the Welsh countryside, on the edge of the pretty village of Llansadwrn with its sixth century foundation church. It enjoys lovely panoramic views of the Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The accomodation is comfortably furnished and comprises a lounge and kitchen/diner on the ground floor, and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Both an indoor and outdoor eating area provides for a perfect summer holiday, whilst full central heating and a wood burning stove makes it cosy in the winter too. The village pub is just a short walk down the quiet minor road, and there is a shop and post office in the next village which is one mile away.

Everything we wanted
Unusual converted Chapel in a quiet location with lovely garden. John and Vivian are the nicest couple, made us feel very welcome and we're on hand if we needed anything. Short drive to the brecon beacons. Pembrookshire coast and gower beaches also close for a day trip.
Thank you so much, both of you. Sorry the weather wasn't sunshine wall to wall, but glad you enjoyed your time in Llansadwrn.
Excellent quiet house
The owners were very helpful and we have had a lovely weekend in the house was very quiet and lovely to sit outside on the patio
Would recommend this house
How kind of you to leave the place SO immaculate. My job was almost done for me, for our next lovely guests.x
Good location, as you can explore in several directions, south and west coasts and the Brecon Beacon
The property has character which I like, a converted Sunday school above, next to the chapel. The double room has a lovely view out to distant hills and we saw it in a range of weathers. It is on a quiet road but v accessible to the A40. There was an attractive patio area which it would have been great to try out but sadly the weather except for one day wasn’t good enough. The house was warm which was great and Vivienne v helpful. There was some misunderstanding about the arrival date but she responded positively to this, including providing scones at v short notice. Much appreciated. Kitchen/dining area spacious and the wood burning stove looked appealing for visits later in the year.
In all a comfortable base for an enjoyable 5 night stay.
Just the job & great location
Vivienne and John are very welcoming and helpful, thank you, it makes a difference!
Rural location with good road links in all directions, not that you need to go far to find good walks and interesting places such as castles and Red Kites. Co-op's at the two nearest towns only a few minutes drive away. Pubs with food even nearer but the house has all you need for self-catering. Car needed really. The accomodation is a clever conversion retaining some woodwork from its previous use. It is clean and comfortable with good views (depending on the height of the maize!). We enjoyed our stay very much.
Thank you both, for a lovely review. It's always good for guests to give an even more comprehensive description of the place and what visitors can do. A big thank you for leaving the house so pristine.
This must be the biggest holiday home we have ever stayed in. Full of character and wonderful views across to the Brecon Beacons. Take a good pair of binoculars or a telescope for an opportunity to see a great view in close up. The owners are really kind and informative, Simply a wonderful experience in every aspect.
Thank you Roy and Linda. We do love living in this part of the world, and are lucky that we can offer part of the premises as a holiday apartment. As our kind visitors have said - , our home looks out on fields and mountains. There is quite a lot of wild life, including Red Kites, so if visitors are keen, it is a good idea to bring binoculars. There are plenty of interesting places to visit in this area too.We are here to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Lovely converted chapel, with stunning views.
Very friendly and helpful owners, lovely peaceful converted chapel, with breathing views towards the Black Mountains, Hope to return again.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your kind comment. We want to make sure that guests that come have everything they need to relax and enjoy themselves. It's such a pleasure to know that others have shared our love of this area.x
