“Rugby weekend”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Booked two nights for five couples and three dogs. Fab location for woodland walks and golf, waterfalls and Swansea. Walked to the New Tredegar Arms on Friday evening, dog friendly, lovely welcome and good pub grub. Lovely spacious, comfortable place to stay. Would recommend. Thank you. Rugby not so good!

Wow! I was just about to email you and ask if you'd mind completing a review, and here we are... Thank you! We are glad you had a good weekend (despite the rugby results), and that you managed to fit quite a few things in over the two days. Thank you again for leaving the chapel so immaculate, you really did much more than expected. We hope you return again soon. Take care, Yonni and Marnie

Fabulous! Thank you so much for your lovely comments - you were great to deal with too! I agree the river is picturesque, whether it's gushing after a rainfall or just merely trickling by. Thanks for looking after the chapel during your stay, we hope you come back one day. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

Thank you very much and a Happy New Year to you. I will update the information - Ynyscedwyn Arms as it is one we haven't tried! The area is well worth an explore! Thank you for highlighting the convenience of the Post Office and wi-fi. Glad you 'loved the uniqueness' of the chapel and we really do hope you return in the summer or at least for a longer stay. Thank you for looking after the chapel during your stay too. Take care and thanks again, Yonni and Marnie

Hi to you all! It was great having you return to Capel Cartref and we are looking forward to you coming back next year. Thank you for your lovely comments regarding the chapel. The location is rather handy, never a shop too far away and the beautiful sights are only a short car journey. Thank you so much for caring for the chapel during your stay; you are clearly conscientious people. Looking forward to your return, Yonni and Marnie

Hello and thank you! So glad to hear that your mum had a comfortable weekend to celebrate her birthday. Thank you for looking after the chapel during your stay. Yes, we've had good feedback regarding The George and, of course, the local attractions. Despite the Gower being a drive away, we feel it is still worth the 30/40 min journey to catch the splendour of it. We look forward to you coming back next year, (if that remains a plan), and thank you once again for your positive feedback. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie

Hello and thank you so much for your review! We are glad you enjoyed exploring Wales and that you found the three waterfalls; there is more to Wales than a lot of people realise! Henrhyd Falls, is the largest waterfall in South Wales, could this be the one you visited? Tredegar Arms and George Inn are now the two local pubs, both of which have had great feedback of late. We are really pleased also to hear that you found the chapel spacious and clean. If you return to Wales, please consider staying with us again as we would love to have you back. Kind regards, Yonni and Marnie
