Kidwelly Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description
One Building, Three Apartments, Nine Bedrooms, Sleeps 18, Great For Sharing
Chapel Apartments with its panoramic views of Carmarthen Bay specialises in weekend, and longer holidays for groups of up to 18 plus cots. If you have something to celebrate you should be here!
Chapel Apartments is located midway between the Gower Peninsula, and Tenby overlooking Carmarthen Bay on the edge of the idyllic village of Llansaint with its two traditional welsh pubs, both doing great food.
We are mid way between the historic town of Kidwelly with its magnificent Norman Castel at 1½ miles, and Ferryside with its large golden sand beach, and railway station at 2½ miles. The nearest access to Carmarthen Bay beach is 1.5 miles, and is a beautiful walk. Our local Blue Flag beach which is 8 miles of golden sand is at Pembrey Country Park 5 miles.
The panoramic views of Carmarthen Bay from the elevated hillside position of Llansaint village are simply breath taking. You will be hard pushed to find more exhilarating view’s in the UK.
We are located just 14 miles off junction 48 of the M4, ideal for weekend getaways. About 1¼ hours from Bristol M4/M5
The 17th Century stone chapel with its oak beams, and fabulous 7 feet circular stained glass window project a kaleidoscope of colures into the chapel. The apartments are deceptively large easily accommodating 18 guests to congregate or be seated in any of the three apartments. The Jolly Roger apartment on the first floor has the extra large dinning table which seats 18, and with three fully fitted kitchens to spread the load, catering for 18 is easy, and three washing machines.
Everybody sleeps on a quality full size bed, with deep fill Silent Night mattress. No Bunks, No sofa beds, and No small beds at the chapel, guaranteed.
The garden is accessed by way of the ground floor Admirals Rest apartment which is ideal for the less agile of your group. We do have a large gas barbeque in the garden which is not shown in the photo's.
The chapel is one building with three independent apartments accessed from one entrance into the building, and then independently off a flight of stairs. No steps to gain access to the ground floor Admirals Rest apartment.
We have our comprehensive visitor information area on the second floor together with our DVD library. All apartments have emergency free to use telephones.
The “Wales Coastal Path” runs from Llansaint village across the meadows, through the forest, and over the hills to Ferryside. On the way you will wade through ankle high Blue Bells, Buttercups, Daisies, and a rainbow of wild flowers in April, May June, across winding streams, and ancient steps cut into the hill sides, and along the entire route you will stand in ore of the panoramic views of the Pembrokeshire coast line. A great place for photographers’ with some serious kit.

What makes this chateau / country house unique
Staying at a chapel converted into apartments is definitely a unique experience. The question is, is the experience a positive one?
We have now had more than 800 guests stay at Chapel Apartments Wales, and I have spoken with many. The overwhelming, and unanimous opinion of these many guests are that the chapel is a massive hit.
Some of the points made are:
Some of us are vegetarians so we had our own kitchen.
The apartments are massive, all 18 of us could sit together in any of the apartments.
The young children were watching dvd’s in one lounge, the older children, used another, and the adults used the ground floor, and had some quality time.
Having our own washing machine was a big advantage.
All 18 of us could eat together with ease.
In the evening retiring to our own apartment earlier or later was a big advantage.
Having an apartment for the babies to sleep in peace was great.
Locking our own apartment was reassuring.
Having our own bathroom was ideal.
Although our group mainly ate together, it was lovely to sit in our own apartment for breakfast or snacks.
Some family’s are more close nit than others, and not everybody wants to be together in one space all the time.
We couldn’t be bothered to cook so we all had dinner next door. It was so cheap it was like staying at a hotel.
The best holiday we have ever had, we are definitely coming back.
These are just some positive comments made to me by guests who have stayed at Chapel Apartments.
