We had a lovely holiday. The cottage was perfect for 5 adults, there was lots of space and the bathrooms were very good. The kitchen had lots of storage space. It was useful having two dining areas as we played a lot of board games.

Rhulen Old Chapel is set within the most beautiful landscape. Walking up to the moorlands not far from the Chapel, you will experience a great stillness and peace. The kind you wish you could bottle up and take home with you. Amazing.

Lovely remote property
This property is a converted chapel and for that reason it has a lot of charm. The location is amazing, a great place to get away from it all. The open fire in the lounge area is a real treat. We visited as an extended family of 6. We found that the kitchen was a lovely place to socialise as it is open plan. However the lounge does not have sufficient seating for 6 people. There is no mobile signal here which was not a problem for us. There is free WiFi and the connection is fast. Overall an enjoyable stay over the new year period.

Fabulous retreat in a cute building that was converted with taste. The owner caters for everybody with the inside furnishings, from books and games to information on surrounding places to visit.

Perfect Little Break- The peaceful escape we wanted
My wife and I were looking for a cozy few days away with our two dogs and WOW this was perfect, just wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is beautiful and ideally laid out for what we wanted. Downstairs you have the kitchen, large porch area ( Dogs can sleep there) and dinning area. There are two bedrooms downstairs and a bathroom. Ideal for walking the dogs, miles of countryside surrounds you then return to have them settle down with you in front of the woodburner while you have a drink sat at the table. Downstairs main area is flag / slate floors so again ideal with the dogs. In the evening we could bed the dogs down and go upstairs to the galleried sitting room again with open fire. The two fires and stone chimney breast which is full height is the centre piece of the house. Bedroom used was very comfy and all amenities were immaculate. Hay on wye aprox 15 mins drive away, also would recommend a trip down to Brecon. A couple of tips Take some logs etc, and make sure you have everything you need nearest shops some distance away especially if you are looking for supermarket. Quite difficult to find make sure you have route sorted before you set off, sat nav may not get you there. Route in is via single track roads all of which are good condition. As it says on the listing on Sykes there is no mobile signal. I am sure we will return
