Set in the heart of Paincastle, this former chapel, originally built in 1828, has been sympathetically restored offering original features with a contemporary twist, simply perfect whatever occasion.

This peaceful hamlet is well served with a good village pub serving great food. For walking you can access the Begwyns from your front door, 580 acres of National Trust hills and rolling landscape with breath-taking views across The Brecon Beacon National Park. For the energetic, the Brecon Beacons National Park and River Wye have a number of adventure training providers, from renting a canoe, to high rope courses and gorge walking. Hay-on-Wye just a short drive away, is famous for its International Book Festival, with plenty of second-hand bookshops, an art house cinema and independent shops, as well as The Globe at Hay. Talgarth is worth discovering, and the Talgarth Mill with its working traditional watermill.

This restored chapel is one of two chapels within the hamlet originally built in 1828 and has been restored to a lovely standard. Step inside and leave your walking boots within the entrance hall, the ground floor is open-plan with the original chapel windows and solid wooden floors, the lounge area offers a wood burner with sofas that you can sink into after a day walking and exploring, a TV/DVD is set to the side. For dining, there is a table set for four with some of the original chapel chairs adding to the character. The kitchen area is contemporary in style and is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. So, when the day is done climb the stairs to the first floor where you will find the two bedrooms. A king-size with vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a twin bedroom with wooden framed beds and an en-suite shower room and WC. There is also a bathroom with shower over the bath and WC.

Such a beautiful cottage and restoration, the attention to detail and high end finish is spot on. It had everything we needed for a relaxed weekend away. We loved the village, pub and it's surroundings. We hope to come back when possible.
